The steps to do this is quite extensive and I believe are best understood straight from the manual.
Here are links to the fisfinder 160 and 120 if you do not have them.

If you nicked it good enough yes it can. If the receiver doesn't detect the transducer, a digital message on the display will indicate this.

My Garmin 421s works perfect but sonar goes off with notification that the tranducer is off. A tap on the case would partly restore service. What is the cause of this failure?


Short in system. if in warranty send to manufacturer. If not open the case and see if any components and wiring are damaged or wire came lose from mother board.

Garmin fishfinder 160c sonar failure


Hi Lakshmaan:
The first thing I would check would be the electrical connections from the transducer, and the transducer wire.

How to solve sonar failure(Showing on Display) in garmin 160c fishfinder.


I would guess that "sonar failure" would mean that no signal is being received from the transducer.
Trouble shoot accordingly.

Garmin 551s sonar stopped working, no bottom definition or ability to see fish GPS charts and speed all work It shows 3 step image repeats top of the screen / water surface has the transducer packed


Check you transducer cable route and connections. Look for kinks, punctures, & tears in cable. Visually check the transducer for damage. #2 check the units operation on a friends boat with the same set or research a local marine repair shop to check ops. Best of luck on the problem.

I am thinking about buying a garmin 451 chartplotter, can I connect this to my garmin 160c fishfinder for sonar capability?


Hi James!
According to the owner's manual, the 451 can be used as a fishfinder when connected to a transducer. I would contact Garmin directly to see if the ducer from your 160c is compatible with a 451. If it is, you're in business! You'll likely have to cut/splice cable, but it'd be far easier than replacing the thru-hulls. (The 451 does come with transducers.)

It has been my experience that Garmin is REAL good when it comes to answering questions from consumers.
Good luck!

If you nicked it good enough yes it can. If the receiver doesn't detect the transducer, a digital message on the display will indicate this.

My Garmin 400c dual beam transducer keeps freezing up, it will flash "0" depth and then go to a "updating software" screen.


check your battery voltage. Low voltage can cause errors end prevent the sonar from starting up. If charging the battery doesn't work then contact garmin for a replacement.

Display reads sonar timed out


check the battery voltage as low voltage can cause the unit to display errors and prevent the sonar from starting up. This unit is more sensitive to low voltage than many other electronics. If charging the battery or replacing it with a known good battery doesn't work then contact garmin for a replacement of your fishfinder.

Soon after leaving the dock the sonar goes off and sometimes reads disconnected. Checked all the wires but still no luck. Seems to go off as we speed up. Any ideas? Regards Roger


My garmin suddenly was doing the same thing. After 5 days of fristration my wife disconnected everything at the unit, as did I many times with no luck, and now it is suddenly working.

We had much rain, it is possible water is in the contacts, but just a thought with that one. My guess is just vibration, and the contacts were loose. Also, make sure your transducer is clean from algae and junk, this will impeded image transmission also.
