Re: Raymarine s3g ast / st7002 / linear autopilot failure

I had a failure of the Raymarine TYPE 2 Linear drive. It was the clutch that failed. The message was not drivestop.
From the SG# Manual - DRIVESTOP error:
The autopilot is unable to turn the rudder (this occurs if the weather load on helm is too high, or if the rudder position sensor has passed beyond the preset rudder limits or rudder end-stops). Check drive and rudder position sensor. Check the drive wiring is correctly connected.
That voltage for the motor output is low, but maybe it is low because of resistance in the motor...check with the motor disconnected.
Maybe a failure of the SG3.
Do you have a spare? Dan Gerhardt <C250@...> can repair SG3.
