Question Is my power commander fried?

My Power Commander will not adjust using the Low, Med, High buttons. The range light on the left is on at 2 "dashes" from the bottom but won't change at all. Is it blown, not connecting right or something else? I really don't know the unit, just had it installed a few years back and was looking at it.

I haven't touched the unit after is was installed 3 years ago so surely don't know how to use it but shouldn't it respond to button presses?

I was trying to do this:
How to Adjust a Power Commander |

Thanks for any help!

I hate to be “Johnny Rain Cloud” but I installed a Power Commander on my 08 Ultra after I bought it and it failed after about two years. I heard later that these units only last a few years, so you may be at that point. I know you don't want to hear this and money doesn't "grow on trees", but you may have to scrap it for a race tuner or find someone to tune it without one. These units are also notorious for malfunctioning after getting wet. If this is the case, you may want to clean/dry the connections and try using some dielectric grease when you reconnect them. Good luck!

Thansks for the comments guys. I have a email into dynojet and will post how that goes. As for wet, well maybe! I've driven in the rain more times that I can count and (gasp!) have washed said ride at the car wash about as many times.
