I`m after some advice on the PTT on my boat.
I was up on Gratham Water the other weekend and my PTT started to misbehave
in that it would only ocassionally work either up or down. This fault was similar on the throttle box and on the engine switch.
Doing a bit of fault diagnosis the switch on the side of the engine is getting power and you can hear both the up and down solinoids clicking. I`ve then followed the cabling down to the engine/transom clamp and to the T shaped connector on the port side of the engine leg. This connector I think seems to be a switch which opens the hydraulic valve. However where the cable goes into this fitting/switch the inner two core cable is visable, ie the outer shielding has moved down the two insulation covered wires. Water has been getting in here and I`ve dried it out but still no joy. I`ve got plenty of juice in the batteries and never had any problems with it before.
Can anybody give me some advice?
