Depth Finder Will not stop beeping!

Recommended Posts

jmiller2496

I have a 06 VLX and the depth finder beeps all the time. I do leave it in the water fyi. Is it beeping cause the it could be dirty or is it something else? Also is there an easy way to disconnect it?

Does it show the correct depth?

Unplug it and install a whole new unit. You can get an entire unit cheaper than parts for the factory one. Hawkeye has one on amazon for around $100 with water and air thermometers

I'm interested in this too. Is it a direct replacement? Link?

Yeah if I push the E button it goes away but only for a minute or so (its very random). It always says .5 ft even if in deep water.

Unplug it and don't look back. It will annoy the crap out of you if you don't. The aftermarket ones are more reliable and the whole unit is way cheaper than the transducer or module for the factory unit. It is a small plug on the left underside of dash. The module for the depth finder is the one with the transducer cable coming straight out the bottom.

If you change the transducer will it work with the stock LCD ?
