SOURCE: lcx-15ct (gps module not responding)

Before you give up on the LGC-12S you have now though, try plugging the LGC-12S right into the LCX-15CT without an extension cable. If the module not responding goes away...you just need a new extension (GPSX-25G p/n 99-46).

The power cable has a set of yellow, blue, orange, and bare data wires. If these wires short together, you can get the module not responding error.

If all that doesn't help...the LGC-12S is bad.

The LGC-12W p/n 112-06 will work with the LCX-15CT. You probably get this at many marine electronics dealers or go to lei-extras.com and buy it straight from Lowrance. They cost $229 so you might want to shop around putting that money into a whole new system altogether.
Make sure you have the latest software updates if you get the newer LGC-12W. These can be downloaded at http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/

Let me know if you need more help.

SOURCE: was working fine,then i get mess.gps module not responding ???

The "Module not responding" message has nothing to do with the GPS display unit. This is a problem with the antenna unit. The unit is crammed with solid state components. This problem arises when the unit is exposed to direct sunlight. This causes over heating and failure of the antenna unit. The only solution is to replace the unit as Lowrance will cannot repair it. They will however, sell you a new one for around $140.

Comes on white screen then off just for a second


If possible, try to restore the device to the newest firmware on it using your computer using this firmware:
http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Marine/Large-Screen-SonarGPS-Chartplotter-Combos/LCX-18C/Downloads/LCX-18C-Software-Update/

OR
Do a soft reset. This may resolve your issues and will also keep your data on the device.
Do a soft reset by:
1. Having the device already off
2. Press and hold the PAGES key
3. Press and hold the PWR key
4. Release both buttons when the USA map appears

If neither of those work, try a hard reset. This will however delete all stored data off your device.
To do a hard reset:
1. Have device off
2. Press and hold the ZIN&ZOUT Keys at the same time
3. Press and hold the PWR key
4. Release both buttons when the USA map appears

If none of these work, contact Lowrance at 1-800-628-4487

When turning on the Lowrance the depth indicator will only register 0.0 and continues flashing the number. The Lowrance is a LCX-17M. We tryed the Lowrance on another boat with a working transducer...


here is the link to your the lowrance web site. the trouble shooting guide says that if you tried to it on another boat than you might need to take it in for service. but there is a section that explains how to do a soft reset on the unit. you might try that.

Gps error message "gps module not responding"


Check the connectors and wiring between the GPS module and sonar unit. If it's an internal GPS module yo may have knocked loose a connector internally.
