  • 08 VDIG support

    Alright I had a issue with my VDIG yesterday were my up bottom started work as a select button. I did fix this, appeared to be a shorted trace in the wiring board. Now in the future if I wanted to replace, I can only find VDIG for a twin engine, will those work for a single engine? Has anyone removed the vdig and replaced with something else?

    Thinking of making an external button board to bypass the vdig buttons all together.

    Yeah the twin engine vdigs will work, but you will have to select either port or starboard engine, whatever it recognizes. Occasionally it will throw a code saying your “other” engine isn’t working, but other than that if it’s the last resort it won’t be bad.

      Thanks Aric, good to know.

      Curious if I could bypass perfect pass going through that unit and put in a stand-alone perfect pass.

        I have not seen them, but apparently you can/ could purchase the buttons alone. I think that is where the problem is. I bought a twin engine vdig and it would blow the fuse (3 amp) I don't know if it was a bad unit, or maybe those require a larger fuse. I ended up swapping buttons onto my old vdig and it works fine. Actually I have one issue sometimes if i turn the key on real slow the vdig remains off. Shut off and back on quickly/ normal and it comes on.... Finicky little things

          I've got a 2009 CSX220 that the prior owner installed a twin engine VDIG some years ago. I've had the boat 3 years now and never had an issue or codes related to the lack of readings from the "other" engine.
