Question about Furuno 1715 LCD Radar System GPS Receiver
My unit will turn on and show a display will read "no heading pulse" across the top of the screen. I can not find my operator's manual and I am at a loss as to what to do.
The messages “NO HEADING PULSE” and “NO BEARING PULSE” means that the display is not communicating with the scanner (antenna). Both of these signals are generated in the scanner if you get this error check that the antenna cable is firmly connected and that the contacts are clean and corrosion free.
If the connection at the display looks good and feels like it’s properly connected, check the cable for any damage If you find damage you could try to repair the wires BUT (because of corrosion and moisture problems) IT IS STRONGLY REMENDED that the cable be replaced, but it’s kind of expensive $275.00.
The Part number is 000-130-034. Depending on the marine shops in your area they may have it in stock (or they can order one) but you can get it directly from Furuno at;
I hope it’s just a loose connection. Good luck!

This was my problem exactly, a loose connection. A year and a half later and I checked out this forum. I had the head off, there was a loose set screw on the pulley too. Thanks a lot!!
