Default Hour gauge

Hey all. I just recently purchased a 2009 1900 sr3. When I purchased the boat the hour meter said 128.9. Yesterday when I picked the boat up itís saying 20 129. Wondering if anyone else has ever seen anything like this ? I know 20,000 isnít a thing in boat hours so I was thinking possibly itís a code for something ? There is also a space in between the 20 and the 129 so just unsure what it means. New to boats and looking for some information. Thanks !

Is it the original Faria gauge? If so, I rec giving Faria a call. It's probably a faulty gauge. You can choose between sending it to Faria for repair, or just replace it.
Since you have a 2009, your actual hours are stored in your ECM.

My hour meter is not digital but has numbered wheels that turn. Is yours a separate hour meter or built into another gauge? Is the engine MPI? Wondering if itís some type of maintenance code plus the hours.

Mine is the original Faria digital gauge. I was also thinking that it was some kind of maintenance code however i called Faria and they told me the gauges have no diagnostic capabilities. The hour meter will run once the key is turned even if the engine is not running however it is impossible for it to have been left on for 20,000 hours in the 3 months between when i bought it and when i picked it up. Only thing i can think of is the lights in the gauge itself are messed up.

Sounds like the meter is bad, however you could just ignore the 20 as the rest of the digits seems to be accurate.

That’s what I was thinking. It’s just odd

I had some quit working and replaced it.
I ran a temp jumper wire and ran it for 20 days to get it to an accurate reading again
