I have a 2009 MC Prostar 197 that does not have Perfect Pass option that was available at the time. It has the basic cruise control toggle with the little + - buttons. I am trying to figure out if I can install Zero Off in the boat. Unfortunately, I'm getting mixed info from different sources. Hoping someone here can help me figure out once and for all what the deal is.
According to Zero Off website and their support rep it will support Zero Off plug and play. Pop the dash, plug in the "standard 3 event kit" and good to go.
However, according to MC when I emailed they said "We don't think so". They said they didn't think it had the right E-control ECM module in that year. Seriously that's what they told me, like the most un-definitive answer possible. Like I even sent my Hull ID and everything. How can they not know what the specs are on an 8 year old boat?
So does anyone out there know? The install looks super easy to do my self but I don't want to drop $1500 on a Zero off kit and find out I'm SOL after the fact. If you don't know is there an easy way for me to figure it out with out removing my dash panel?
If its more than plug and play but still doable can you provide guidance on what would be involved so maybe I can look into with my local Mechanic?
PS. sorry if this is a tired topic, I searched through all the old zero off threads I could find and had no luck.
