Welcome aboard

You can try Great Lakes Skipper, however if you have the push button ignition I doubt you will have much success as this was a custom system and with Maxum shut down the company that manufactured it for them stopped making them.

Can you post a picture of what you have.

There are folks who make replacement dash panels, so depending on what you have that might be an option.

Well at least you do not have the soft key panels with keyless ignition as those are a much bigger issue to deal with.

Guess you have two options find a plastic shop that will make molds from yours to make new ones ($$$$) or ruff the surface of these and paint them and then using stencils remake the switch locations.

Speaking of switches I have never seen them so rusty, does water collect in those pockets the switches are in? If so get a cover for the helm.

I don't see any cracks. You are going to have a hard time replacing that piece. I do see that someone reefed way too far down on the mounting screws. No need to distort the switchplate to affix it to the bulkhead.

I agree about the switches themselves. Those don't look stock and wouldnt' expect Brunswick to use non-marine materials like that. It looks like someone replaced the switches with stock from HD or Radio Shack.

A body shop can do plastic repairs and painting as well. Years ago I had a buddy who practically split the cowl of his snowmobile in two. The crack was a couple of feet long. (Picture tearing a piece of paper down the center, only half-way through the sheet. Another buddy who does body work fixed it and painted. You couldn't tell the cowl had a crack in it when he was done.

BlueSea makes marine toggles which would work in those applications.

Default Maxum 2100 SD soft push button electronic start keypad

Hi All,

I'm new and from South Africa and own one of those 2100 SD's with that soft touch electronic keypad. I have scoured the planet to no avail and would like to make a recommendation to everyone else who may have this dashboard to try and keep what is a great boat going.

I contacted mercruiser and they make an adapter to fit the 14 pin plug on the 350 MPI motor. This allows you to connect the new Mercruiser Analogue Harness and change all the gauges to Faria analogue gauges. I had a plastics fabricator modify my existing dash panel to accommodate the new gauges and put in an analogue switch panel on the gunnel for all the ancillary devices including showers, blowers, bilge pump etc etc etc. I now have the same boat with the a totally analogue set up and anyone with a tester can maintain it. I am not sure what maxum were thinking when they built it, but who cares about the fancy electronics, BTW I rejigged the depth finder as well and have a separate readout on my dash for that. It looks great and works even better. As to why my panel stopped working CORROSION. TOTAL COST was $ 2300.

Hello,
I too am a 2100SD owner and am looking to get away from the membrane switches. Could you post some more info on your retro fit? I would also love to see your new setup! Pics would be awesome.
Thanks!!

Hello, I was wondering if you had any words of wisdom for someone looking to get rid of the soft touch keypad switches on a 2002 2100SD? I could sure use the help, and it sounds like you've been down this road.
Thanks so much for the help!
Ken

@Dual-Maxum-Owner

The OP joined around March of 2015 and his last post was later in march of 2015 as well. There is a chance he has not been back.

you might get better visibility with a new post.

shrew I think he is asking 65k and not the OP. The OP does not have the softkey but 65k posted how he replaced his but lacking detail.

Hi it's been a year since 65k posted about his solution and he never came back to post the pictures he said he would post. I doubt you'll hear from him.

You could try sending him a PM which will go to his email and maybe he'll provide you with some info.

Good luck

Ok, thank you gentlemen. I think I am going to go down the road of replacing the entire VDO system. Which means new gauges, new switches, new faceplates, and removal of the "think box" in the engine compartment. I'm not looking forward to this project.
