Hi all, some years ago in French Polynesia I had similar problems. The techs after long and arduous investigations told me the fault was in the course computer so I dropped the pick and ordered a new unit. In the two week wait I took the advice of a 12 year Cruiser and checked the electrical connection to the 12 volt clutch. He was right and the techs wrong. I found some corroded connections, fixed them. Done. Sme 7 or 8 years later, same again. Again bad connections.
Worth a look perhaps. I guess with the continuous on and off of current to the clutch as course corrections are made these connections are subject to forces not experienced with other equipment.
