Issue With Perfect Pass

Recommended Posts

OkStateWake

Hey guys, today I was on the lake using my PP wakeboard pro for my '06 VLX whilst surfing. Everything was working now fine for a while, but out of no where, PP would beep to let me know it had engaged, yet would continue to gradually accelerate (despite throttle position being ideal), and if I just *barely* throttled back, PP would never catch my programmed speed. Help??

Thanks

Check to see if the paddles on the pp sensor (under the bost hull ) are still looking good. I had to replace this speed sensor a few years back as the paddles that register speed literally feel apart. Super easy install.

Rebelinc, I checked the paddle wheel, and it is looking like it's in great condition.

UPDATE: PP is beeping, yet not controlling speed of boat at all. Paddle wheel appears to be completely intact, and I even did a system reset to see if that fixed the issue and it didn't. Anyone know what the issue may be?

Call the PP people tomorrow, they are really good at helping you figure PP issues out.

Edit: That sounded funny as heck when it I read it again

PP on an 06? I thought they had changed to Malibu Cruise by then.

Whatever. Look into respooling the cable at the servo.

Update #2: Called PP customer support and after explaining my issue, they informed me that my servo motor was bad and that I'll need a new one.

Edit: What's the best place to buy a new servo?

From PP, I don't think you can buy it elsewhere?

The part numbers for the servo are on them still. But after looking them up myself the cost difference is not worth the ease of having it already having the cable and brackets on them.
