Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Raymarine Autopilot problem
Paul, Totally agree about checking connections before condemning the autopilot. Include breaker and battery switch. Did you check voltage with autopilot load applied? That is, attach your multimeter to the leads going to the autopilot motor, then turn on the autopilot and initiate a 30 degree or so turn and read the voltage while the autopilot motor is running.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Hi Anne Sofie,
go over all the electrical connections to the auto pilot. Separate them and clean before reconnecting. I had expensive technicians suggesting expensive solutions and another cruiser gave me that advice. He was right, they were wrong and we spent an unnecessary two weeks extra in Raiatea, French Polynesia.. Another can be a build up of carbon dust in the linear drive motor. Two easy low cost checks, nothing lost if its wrong.

I could be the linear drive malfunctioning, have had that situation once. Contact Raymarine for help.
