My Ray Marine ST 1000 auto tiller pilot started setting stuck, but not consistantly. the shaft just vibrates in some spots but does not move. what could be the probable cause?

the worm gear that is inside the unit may need to lubricated,, remove the bottom case and lubricate gears and shaft with a teflon or silicone based lube. also on my sailboat when this happened I found that I needed to re-calibrate the unit - take the boat out into a very calm and open water and ' spin the boat ' in CAL mode ( this will re-orientate the internal compass ).
have fun on the water and have a great night,

When i put it in the water and start going it works for a few feet in my control then it starts going in circles

the battery sometimes doesn't get charged very well. When the batter is low, it goes on auto pilot. When this happens to me, I'm usually turning the boat, which makes it go in circles until the batter dies. I learned that keeping the battery cool when charging will help it charge better to prevent this until fifteen or so minutes.

Minn Kota 24v auto pilot. will track correctly

Usually this means that there is a crack in the coil cord or there is something metal close to the head of the motor.
The coil cord can be checked while you are out fishing next time by grabbing the cord (black coiled cord from base to head of the motor) and stretching it and pulling on it. If the motor reacts to the pulling then that's the problem.
best of luck!

Sea talk failure

Remove all wiring from 4000 head, hook up only 12V, if seatalk fail continues, it is the head. if seatalk fail goes away, hook in instruments one by one until the bad head is found. Seatalk is 12V red, Ground Screen(bare wire) and Data yellow (pulsing voltage). good luck 847-746-0100 John Barry
