I had a survey
done on an 1995 Island Packet
37 a few weeks ago. We could not activate the Navdata or Autopilot
instruments. Yesterday i ran the engine
for a few hours and all of the other instruments went on except the same two. Today we got the mast
on and i connected the wind vane wiring
and when i went to start the motor
and turn the electronic on i realized i heard something pop. I popped off the cover tot he control head
of the Raymarine
Smart Pilot and relized i blew a 15Amp fuse. I replaced it but same thing it popped as soon as power was given to it. I removed everything connected to the control head
and the only wires left going into it was the power for it. it was still blowing the fuse and now none of my instruments will go on obviously. It was too late to cal Raymarine
today to get any answers.
Anyone have any ideas as to what is happening? Out of no where this just happened.
