Surf Gate not working

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 2015 24 MXZ and just took it out on the water this weekend to find out that the surf gate is not working. I recalibrated the surf gate and it still didn’t work. I put the surf gate into service mode and both sides extended and then retracted when I ended the service mode. I tried all of the surf presets and everything works except the surf gates don’t extend. I tried the surf gates manually outside of the presets and it still does not work. I know that the speed needs to be between 7-12mph. 


The surf gates aren’t broke because they will extend in service mode but won’t extend any other time. 

thank you for any help the group can provide.

Had the same issue along with a wedge warning with my 2019 last year. The dealer reflashed the computer and no issues since.

There is a previous topic I posted with pics.  There are reed switches (sensors) that tell the computer the position of the surf gate.  They are a pretty common failure.  Try reading my previous post and see if that makes sense to you.
