How do I set the different modes of a faria depth finder on a 2002 Ebbtide 21 foot ski boat, all I know is it located on the transom. Also, is there anyway to silence the alarm? Sorry don't kmow its model, but it looks like a Chesapeak models I've seen on other websites.

YOUR TRANSDUCER MAY BE SET FOR HORIZONTAL MODE...MEANING FROM BANK TO BOAT, NOT DEPTH...CHECK THE TRANSDUCER TO MAKE SURE, IT IS AIMING DOWN, NOT OUT...OTHERWISE YOU'LL NEED TO CHECK YOUR MODE SETTINGS IN YOUR MENU.
YOU CAN ALSO DO A TEST ON YOUR TRANSDUCER, BY SCREWING IT ONTO A BROOM STICK ...ADJUST THE TRANSDUCER DOWN, CHECK YOUR SETTINGS ON THE SCREEN, THEN DO A SIDE TEST WITH THE TRANSDUCER TILTED SIDEWAYS TOWARDS THE BANK AND CHECK YOUR SCREEN!
THEY CAN BE TRICKY...AND ARE VERY SENSITIVE, BUT ONCE YOU FIGURE OUT, HOW YOU WANT TO USE IT, YOU'LL LOVE IT!
I own a 1995 Four Winns and what you need is a Lowrance LSM-1 depth
finder unit. It accepts the two pin lead from the transducer and send
the depth reading to the dashboard display via the 6-pin connector.
There is also a three wire harness (red/blk/wht) that connects to a
The reason I know all this is my depth finder
fried a couple years ago so I removed the Lowrance LSM-1 from the boat
in order to find a replacement. Unfortunately, this was an OEM part
that is not available from Four Winns or any aftermarket source.
Probably your best bet is to look in a boat salvage yard or purchase an
aftermarket depth finder.
Assuming you're talking about a Depth Finder or a GPS... if it's depth finder, I had a similar problem on a Humminbird Depth Finder... the issue was holding down the power button too long. If you push it long enough for the system to light up and let go, it should solve the problem. Holding it down longer takes it into Simulation. Hope that helps.
I'm having the exact same problem. I spoke with the service manager at Faria (Ted) and he was thinking that as long as the gauge is showing a reading, it should default to reading the depth. I'll probably send the guage in to FARIA - they'll repair it for $55. You bring up a good point - maybe the transducer is bad? I put a call in to the Tedmeister to see what he thinks. I'll post if he sheds any light.
Hi- I have a 1996 Four winns boat with the same problem. I believe we are missing an adapter cable which goes from the depth cable to the instrument panel. I have not been able to locate this cable yet. If I find it I will let you know and can you do the same for me if you locate one?
Hello geld1. Your problem is the transducer, cable or connector. Check transducer with an ohm meter, flex the cable while ohming the restance shouldn't change. The location and mounting of the transducer could be the main problem. Use the the correct gel film including a secure postion support.
