    Thanks Steve ! I looked over the docs you've shared and they are much appreciated. I did see a Key Test mode but didn't see much on what to try if a key fails. Since posting my question, I managed to pick up a salvage unit for parts and have simply swapped out consoles, but I'm still interested in how one might fix a failed key if such a thing is even possible ? Thanks again !!

SOURCE: Precor EFX 546 elliptcal shuts off

Your problem is most likely due to the magnetic sensor on the right side of the unit under the plastic housing.
The right pedal arm, has a magnet emeded in the on the inboard side of the arm. When the arm comes around and passes this sensor at the bottom of the unit, a pulse is generated and sent to the computer.
The mangetic sensor on the frame of the unit, may need to be adjusted to a closer proximity with the pedal arm magnet. Assure the arm does not strike the magnetic sensor however.
It's also possible the sensor has come loose and fallen into the base of the unit.

There is a place on line to get some of these, it is. www.treadmilldoctor.com/Products-Services2/precor-treadmill-belt.
The manual can be found at. fitness.manualsonline.com/ex/thread/view/idThread/2141832
This place has manuals and user manulas along with support and some partswww.shopwiki.com/Precor+EFX+5.171 I believe this unit has a 10 yr warranty with it and the part in question may be covered by them. There is also a 1 year part warrant for other parts, I just don't know what parts they are covering for the 10 yr.

Warning Notice for Battery Installation of certain Precor Ellipticals This notice provides details about the battery replacement procedure that should be considered by anyone performing this repair. Following is the warning about the battery installation for certain models of the Precor ellipticals.

Precor Elliptical Models Affected:

  • EFX C524 with serial#s beginning I7, K7, LH, SW, SX
  • EFX C546 with serial#s beginning NF,SZ, IK, IL, IU
  • EFX C546I with serial#s beginning X8, XG, Z2
  • EFX C556 with serial#s beginning NG, SY
When replacing the battery on your Precor elliptical it is important to make sure that the battery terminals are not allowed to make contact with the metal surface of the battery bracket. **Damage to the battery will occur**.
Electrical tape can be wrapped around the battery terminals to prevent them from making contact with the metal surface of the battery bracket.
Battery replacement on the EFX C524, EFX C546, EFX C546i and EFX C556 instructs you to remove the (4) screws that fasten the battery bracket to the frame. This allows you to turn the lower PCA and battery assembly away from the frame so you can slide the battery out of the battery bracket. It may be necessary to remove the nut that fastens the front retaining bracket or "L" bracket in order to slide the battery out of the battery bracket.

Precor EFX 546 05 stuck key


Precor Error 05, Key Depressed at Power Up Probable Cause 1. A key is permanently depressed on the display.
2. An interface chip (IC) has failed in the upper PCA's keypad.
3. Liquid (cleaning solution or sweat) may be on the surface of a touch sensitive display.
Corrective Action
  1. Disconnect the keypad cable from the upper PCA. Reset power to the machine. If the Error 05 is eliminated, the keypad is the cause and should be replaced.
  2. Disconnect the keypad cable from the upper PCA. Reset power to the machine. If the Error 05 still appears, the upper PCA* is the cause and should be replaced. *Upper PCA's most commonly do not come with software. Remove the software (chip) from the existing upper PCA prior to replacement and install into the new upper PCA.
  3. Wipe away all liquid from the touch sensitive display. Reset power to the unit. If the Error 05 is eliminated, the liquid was the cause.
