Seneca V Electronic Engine Instrument Display Failure
I have a 1998 Seneca V, which has both analog engine instruments and an electronic display of mostly but not entirely duplicate information on an electronic display above the stack of analog engine instruments. The electronic display adds ammeter, power, fuel consumption and endurance, etc. The electronic display failed. They no longer make them. Refurbished units are hard to get, and the core charge along with a refurbished unit is more than the cost of the refurbished unit. Given that the cost for a replacement already roughly $6K will more than double if my old unit is not serviceable (due to the core charge), it seems like it is time to replace this with something that is serviceable. Has anyone else experienced this, or does anyone have advice on what brand/model engine instrument monitor to replace these gauges with? I believe the analog gauges and the electronic display are actually tied together because a fault on an analog gauge is stored in memory. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
