: Smart Pilot ST7001 & ST-50 Tri-Data
Blindly running new rubber fuel
line under the floor I would have crossed over two cables
I suspect the Fluxgate
cabling would be the damaged cable as it snaked under the floor in I assume the same path as I ran the fuel
line. The computer to sea talk ran pretty much parallel and not under the floor.
After running the last leg of the fuel line I received a Seatalk
Fail error. Everything was in perfect running order prior to the fuel line installation
so it sounds like it should be pretty simple. ((Yeah…complex electrical
is not my strong suit))
Trouble shooting guides say to check cables
and connections. Of course I can’t see beneath the floor so I have been checking the voltage at each end of the cables. The voltages all match from the course computer to the Controller and the Fluxgate
. However, the blue FLUXGATE has no of very little voltage at the Smartpilot terminal hence the same reading at the FLUXGATE.
What should this reading be? I’m concerned that something may have shorted back to the computer?
I have not yet performed the Fluxgate Compass
ohm Test or the Power Checks on the main board. Can you tell me what the voltage reading should be at the terminal on the blue fluxgate connection. The red green & yellow test out at around 4.5V if I remember correctly and the blue is negligible.
Once I have verified all of this I will probably seek return for mfg service
I need to resolve this issue as I am looking to upgrade from the ST-50 to es9-Series equipment
