Default Novak GTX maybe dead

Help required

I have got novak GTX speedo, Which seems to have gone a bit faulty.

When i connect the wires to the battery the motor starts turning even if the switch is turned off. Is this a return job or is there anything i can do to fix this.

Cheers

Anthony

Have you had it working lately ... and as long as you have not changed the wires leading into the unit from the receiver, or have not installed it incorrectly in the receiver:

RIP GTX...
