SurfGate will not deploy

Recommended Posts

lawsonmax46

I have a 2014 Malibu 23 LSV and i am having some problems with my SurfGate. We have used it this year already and it worked perfectly. However, last weekend we went out and SurfGate would not work. The first time we tried to surf it started to deploy but then just closed before it got fully extended. After that first try it just stopped deploying completely the cruise control would engage but that's all. I tried to re-calibrate it and reset everything to factory default (I ignition cycled after each of these things). Finally I gave up any help would be great hate missing time out on the water Thank you.

try service mode and see if both gates will stick out.

If they won't, pull the seat over the transmission and look for a fuse near the starter. Pull to see if it's blown.

Sorry to hear that... When you did a full reset did you leave battery on or turn it off?

I turned the batteries all the way off. The first time i turned the boat on that day it flashed low battery at me on the radio idk if that has anything to do with it.

Shouldn't but not positive about that. If I were you, turn off batteries and Chechen each for voltage with meter. Then put load on them and recheck. May have bad battery/is giving some issue.

i had this problem on a 2013 , turned out to be a relay fault . The is a relay that controls the surfgate in the engine bay beside the surfgate controller, mine was mounted upside down, i presume that is why it failed
