Question about Lowrance Lms 520c 5" Screen Color External Gps And 200 Khz Sonar System

3 Answers

Lake map is locked up-same position as turned off on prior trip.

No apparent GPS signal on screen since last trip out 2 weeks ago. GPS seems always slow to pick up and often loses signal but does retain signal or position eventually, until now(last trip out). Help

Hi TBS,

When you power up a GPS, it assumes it's still at the same position it was when powered down. If that position has changed, it will normally take at least three sat-locks to triangulate the new location and begin registering motion vectors.

Unit location and/or Antennae location are major factors in signal acquisition speed. When I plan on using my portable unit, I'll power it up outside the car. I get acquisition in half the time. Once it locks on, no problems. I just get impatient..

From what you have described, it sounds like normal (if not slower than normal) operation. If there are other symptoms, please reply with details.

Thanks for using Fixya

This is completely normal, particularly if the phone's environment restricts satellite visibility or signal quality in any way. It takes time to lock the satellites and assess the quality of signal.

What will stop my injectors from have a pluse


It's a fused circuit. With key on, the injectors will have steady 12 volt power to them. Only when the pcm internally grounds the injector ground wire (running from the injector into the pcm) for a split second, then the injector will pulse.

So you have a fused wire from a fuse box to the injectors. With key in ON, the injector will have voltage to it constantly. When the pcm grounds the circuit, power is passed across the injector terminals, energizing the injector solenoid or coil, and that is your pulse.

Check the injector fuse, check for voltage to an injector with key on, and check the ground wire from injector to the pcm. Here's how to check the ground circuit: use a test light and clip the tester lead on the POSITIVE battery post. Put the tester probe into the ground terminal at the injector, and have a helper crank the engine over. If ground circuit is good, the test light will blink when cranking. You are shooting voltage into the ground wire, and every time the pcm internally grounds that wire, the test light will blink. One other possible cause of no pulse is a shorted injector. This can be checked by testing the resistance (with an ohmmeter) across the injector terminals. It will have a specified resistance value -a few ohms, depending on the make. Just check the resistance of all injectors. Any one that is way off from the others may be a shorted injector- an internal short in the injector solenoid.

What could cause this?


Hi, It's almost certainly your thermostat not closing, and letting coolant flow round the system while it is still cold. It should close until the motor warms up and then open when cooling is required. Depending on your motor, a new one won't be very expensive and is a simple job to replace.
