Why does my simrad ap16 say initializing and doesn't do anything else?

This year when we started the Simrad AP16 all it does is say initializing. Nothing else. What is the problem?

The fact that initialization cannot complete the task at hand is an indicator the device is not capable of accepting new instructions, the circuit prevents reestablishing current instructions from making changes to the unit, or you may need to pay for services to unlock various codes.

    Thank you but the unit has been working for a few years. Now all of a sudden it is not. Can you think of a reason it has stopped working?

Turn on normally, go to press auto.... nothing


Hi Ty
This sounds to me like a cabling problem. There is enough "horsepower" to turn the unit on, but the increased current required to actually run the thing isn't as robust as it needs to be.

I would start by checking the connections at the panel or battery. Make sure these are absolutely pristine. (i.e. Clean and tight) Pay particular attention to the terminals and/or crimp connectors, whichever are used. It doesn't take much corrosion here to render the autopilot inoperable. Let me know how you make out.

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.

Change MMSI number ? simrad rd 68


Hi!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but according to the Owners Manual for this unit:
http://www.busse-yachtshop.de/pdf/simrad-rd68.pdf (Page 6),
to erase a previously entered MMSI, the radio must be sent to a Simrad authorized dealer. I suppose this feature was put into effect to cut down on stolen Simrad products.

Hope this is helpful, sorry I couldn't do more for you.

Simrad ac10 current overload


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.

GPS/Fishfinder keeps dropping and restarting


Do a software upgrade to the CE33 unit and then a master reset by unplugging the power cable , then press and hold PWR and CLR buttoms while plugging back the power cable. Wait a couple of second while the software reloads and should run smooth....
NOTICE: All the previous data as routes, waypoints, etc that you had will be lost by the master reset.
