Step 1: Configuration and Calibration

This addendum contains instructions on how to set up a Suzuki Engine Interface using Suzuki Modular Instrument System 4" and 2" multi-function gauges.

Information about Configuration, Calibration (fuel and engine trim), setting Fuel Warnings and Resetting values was not included in the Suzuki Modular Instrument (SMIS) 4" Multi-Function Gauge manual (988-0151-381) or the Suzuki Modular Instrument System (SMIS) 2" Multi-function Gauge manual (988-0151-721).

Step 2: SMIS 4" Multi Function Gauge

The following instructions show how to use the SMIS 4" multi-function gauge to configure and calibrate (fuel and engine trim) a Suzuki Engine Interface. Other information in this segment covers how to set a Fuel Warning and how to perform a factory Reset.

Change Engine, however, will only appear on your gauge's menu if you are using an engine-tank configuration for two or more engines. If all engine interfaces on your vessel are configured, you will have to unconfigure an engine interface to free up its configuration name (Port, Center, Starboard).

To reconfigure an engine interface (Change Engine):
The steps below show how to switch the configuration name of an engine interface from the Port engine to the Starboard engine.

If all three engine interfaces are configured, leaving no name configuration available, follow the first set of instructions below. If the desired
configuration name is available, follow the second set of instructions below.
