ST7000 Auto Pilot has no "Heading" displayed

Hi Cruisers,

Sailing out of Mission Bay last Thursday the AP failed. Showed "ST FAILURE" on ST7000 screen. Was able to still use AP, but it no longer displays the "Heading."

I've tried cycling the power several times, no change. Checked all wires at multiplexer(?), ST controller, steering quadrant and Fluxgate compass. No obvious loose wires.

AP still functions, but displays no Heading and failed 3 more times on the trip to San Diego Bay.

Any useful suggestions on how to test components. Better yet, has anyone else experienced this and discovered the solution?

Thanks,
C

PS. Already did a search of the forum threads with no luck.

Found this, hope it helps.
Very delicate innards, lots of care needed if you open a fluxgate.

Hi Cruisers,

After diagnosis of the Auto Pilot lacking heading info on the ST7000 AP display, it appears the computer is acting up. So we are upgrading some electronics.

We will be offering much of our existing electronics to others once the upgrade is complete. So keep watching if you're interested in used Raymarine / Standard Horizon electronics.
