Normally this is the electric motor causing this problem. Just went on a call and had the same thing. Checked voltage coming from the AC unit to the motor and had 12 vdc then put a new one in it's place and it solved the problem. You don't have to change the pump portion, just change the motor itself. Indeed you will have fluid leaking but many times it's better than plumbing in a new pump.

Has it ever worked?
What has changed?
Is it the a "pole/linear" or a "rotary" FB unit?
Out of the 5 basic parts of the AP system, the RFB is the most replaced due to the environment (Splash, heat, vibration, mech movemnet).

"Rudder feedback error"
does not see the RFB at all.
check the connections in the J-box first.
you should be able to manually turn your wheel and see the RFB indicator change on the control head.

"rudder responce error"
does not see the RFB move when the AP is given a command.
then check physical connections.
could be loose, could be backward?

My simrad ca44 keeps turning itself on and off


This is almost always a power supply issue. Check and clean your positive and negative connections. Although the link below is for car batteries, the principles are the same.
If that gives you no joy, check the plug and socket of your unit. It doesn't take much corrosion to render an electronic device inoperable.

Hope this helps.

My Ap16 Simrad control head died. Any idea of as to 1) where I might get it repaired and/or 2) where I might find a replacement?


Hi John

Boy, you're up against it on this one. The AP16 is a pretty old unit for sure. Here's the link to your owners manual.

I've come across one instance in my experience where although there was enough power showing to the control head, because of corrosion and broken wire strands, there simply was too much voltage drop and not enough current flow for the unit to function when it was turned on. After cutting back/fixing the soldered connections and reconnecting the cable, the unit was good to go.

I hope this information is able to help you out.
Good luck.
-Steve
