2016 VTX erroneous indications

Recommended Posts

Mikeht

New to us 2016 vtx, has 25 hours on it. Maiden voyage we had numerous false readings on the main display. Ballast showing 0% when actually full,

water temp varying up to 100 degrees, depth gauge anywhere from 0 to 160. Also had problems initially with surfgate extending even after calibration although my 14 year old got it to work eventually. And finally seemed to have issues with the speed control initially grabbing the pre set speed .... this could be an operator problem though. Anyone care to chime in on this.... can not see several sensors having issues at the same time so wondering what the common denominator might be. Boat still on warranty but it’s 2.5 hour tow so trying to avoid that if possible.

cheers Mike

Sounds like the depth transducer and an actuator may have an issue.

Need to get it into a dealer.

The more you work on this yourself, the more resistance you will get from your dealer. Let them handle it. Have you called them and asked for advice?
