Transom Alarm - Constant

Recommended Posts


When powering on my 2014 20 VTX has a constant transom alarm.  There are no alerts on the display.  I took it in to the dealer and they said they have never seen that before and are calling Malibu. Has anyone else experienced this issue?  Thank you!

Curious what you mean by transom alarm?


if it’s malfunctioning, you can always temporarily unplug the buzzer. 

The my 2016 boat has a transom buzzer to announce changing sides on surf gate.

I had a 2014 VLX and had an alarm, at the transom, same as OP described. Turns out it was the audible alarm for the wave transfer. I was told the Surf Gate module was failing and that was one of the symptoms. At the transom, of my boat, there was a small round horn looking device. I found the wire and disconnected it. Took care of the alarm and the Surf Gates continued to work normally.
