2013 23 LSV Surf Gates Not Working (Solved)

Recommended Posts


Want to share an issue I had with my boat. The surf gates stopped working over the winter at some point. No faults on the display. I reached out to Malibu for assistance and they got back to me the same day telling me where and what to check for power and ground. I found the voltage at the 87 pin (Malibu uses pin 87 for battery power, not pin 30) on the relay for the surf gate controller fluctuating quite a bit (5V-12V) with the ignition on, engine start code entered, and engine off. Turns out the surf gate control box relay gets its power from the starter/battery lug on the starter motor. There is a 20A inline fuse near the lug that had developed corrosion over the winter. I cleaned out the fuse holder and replaced the fuse and now the gates are working perfectly.

Super awesome that Malibu responded and was so helpful with this. That is an incredible level of customer service. Thank you Malibu!
