    Hello, I have a 2000 340 DA that has a faulty AC volts meter. I tried to change the meter out but it still would no register. I checked how many volts are coming through the line and that looked good. If anyone has heard of or had similar problem, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    How many volts do you get when you test across the back of your AC volt meter? Is your test equipment set on AC or DC volts?

    115.7 volts set at VAC 200. I used a digital craftsman voltage meter.

    Bad panel meter then. You can verify it and satisfy yourself by removing the meter from the panel and connecting it to to a known 120 VAC power supply.
