Mice ate transducer wire

Transducer and speed and temp wires have been eaten. The outer rubber and the shield is open exposing the wire . The unit still works sometimes but not reliably. Can I splice this wire somehow. The damage is below the water line in one spot.

Cut the wire and re connect with crimp connectors and then seal withe heat shring tubing and a heat gun (put the tubing in first) or you could solder the ends together and heat shrink tubing over the individual wires. So long as you have a good water tight connection ther should be no adverse affects to your equipment.

How to install wiring


Start at the transducer, mount it then pull the transducer wiring forward using a wire snake. At the same time pull forward 14ga wire to attach to your power leads.
on most boats I've done this process takes from 90 minutes to 3 hours.
The transducer and head unit are easy to put on. Getting wire from point A to point B is the time consuming part.
Once you have your wires pulled forward route them to your head unit at your console. Drilling of access holes may be required.

Connect power, plug in the transducer line.
Black to negative at the battery, red to positive, don't forget to put in the in line fuse included in your box.

Good luck.

WHAT TRANSDUCE GOES WITH THE DS600X COLOR ..WHERE CAN I BUY ?


Hi
Airmar makes almost all of the transducers for Raymarine. From the Airmar FAQ section, your unit is listed. See the link below. Pretty much any marine chandler or Raymarine dealer should be able to order it for you.

Hope this helps

I have a Humminbird 708ci hd si fishfinder. I have issues with it turning off when moving at higher speeds on a little choppy water. I have the basic unit mount. What should I try to fix the issue?


Make sure all your wire and contacts are pressed in good, try taking your finder off the mount hold in your hand while going fast, see if it still goes off, if it does you might have a bad fish finder, or transducer is hitting hull or loose wire some where.

When at speed i tend to lose sight of the bottom it becomes very broken. Also the depth reading takes a while to record depth.


What you are experiencing sounds like air bubbles crossing the face of the transducer. If you have a transom mount transducer check the face of the transducer. Make sure that it is clean. Also make sure the front of the transducer is a tiny bit lower than the back. The digital readout on the screen will only happen when you have a strong signal of the bottom.

Yes. You need to make sure you get the same transducer though. With you system being that old, you may have a transducer that is old where there is not a direct replacement. You need to make sure you get the correct transducer. You may need to get a "flapper" kit to update your housing to the new style.

I was looking to see if I could find a replacement for the display and was able to confirm that the transducer is a single beam 120khz unit so I doubt that you've find a replacement for it ..as is .

The Airmar C-49 is the proper number for the connection line but like me I think your going to have to think about a whole new unit and or system . Been there already.

Best of luck.

Mounting a sonor/transducer on a MinnKota Riptide ST


Did the unit come with a strap to mount the transducer to a bow mount electric? Most units do... If not there is probably one available for the unit as an aftermarket accessory or accessory from the manufacturer... Regarding the transducer wire, just wrap and rout this up the front of the bow mount motor shaft so when you pull the motor up and secure it, it is not going to get in the way. You could cable tie the cord down near the bottom of the shaft and one up near the top where they wont interfere with the motor bracket when the motor is positioned up on the boat.
