SOURCE: every time i turn on my lowrance 520c it says gps module not resp

I had the same problem. Sent my entire unit back to Lowrance, but they said it was fine. One year later, I find out that I did not receive or have the correct parts to hook up the GPS unit. I needed the NMEA 2000 T connector and terminator plugs. Look at your manual and hook it up the way the manual says. It will require a NMEA 2000 T and at least one 60 ohm terminator plug. Seems the GPS module sends back some kind of signal that if not absorbed by this thing will mess up your unit. Mine works since I got it hooked up correctly. HD

The GPS claims that the transponder is not communicating. All cabling looks fine and there is no apparent damage to the head.


Normally this error shows that something is wrong with the antenna itself. If the unit is old it's best to change it out. most gps antennas are only good for about 5-10 years. unless you have had a lightning strike close by then less. The other thing is to make sure that you don't have the internal gps selected in the menu and that you have both terminators on the nmea 2000 network that the LGC-2000 is connected to.

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.

The LGC-2000 is bad would be the most likely cause, but if this started right after you changed the cables, Try connecting the NMEA 2000 network to a different power source than the main power. If you still have the original cables, and you didn't have the problem before, try using those again to make sure there isn't anything wrong with any of the new cables.

But most likely, the LGC-2000 is toast and you will want to contact Lowrance support to see about getting it repaired/replaced.

Power to Lowrance GPS


Hi,

Yes you have to hook up the red wires together to the + and both black ones to the negative, otherwise the antenna won't be supply in current , and don't forget to insert behind the red wire a fuse and a switch to avoid to discharge your battery .
