Correct, will not move while boat is moving.       The Power Wedge debug screen is blinking 0-1 back and forth.      Warning signal came on to “calibrate wedge”.         Wont move and cant hear any hydraulic trying to budge it.

Did you try running the calibration in the settings?

The +/- on the debug screen won't make it move?

 

If not, tripped breaker, bad actuator or other power problem.

Update—- mechanic has replaced the sensor but is now needing to replace the relay switch.    

This is 2016 LSV with 350 hours

FYI when the wedge is stuck in lift position, the boat is useless.

The wedge has a red hydraulic bypass valve on the top of the actuator.  It can be accessed through a hole in the top of the wedge bracket.  If you turn it counter clockwise about three turns the wedge can be lifted or lowered by hand, then the valve can be turned clockwise and locked into place.

Dealer should have told you that.

FYI, the surf gate actuators also have a red bypass valve that works the same way.  You can use a 10 mm wrench on those.

Do you have to remove the swim platform to get to the red hydraulic bypass valve on the top of the actuator for the power wedge?

You don't have to remove the platform, but it does make it much easier to get to the valve.
