ST4000 tiller autohelm wild over correction

Subject autohelm has worked perfectly on my 1977 Nich 31.

Saturday I turned it on and it went into a slalom.

Any guesses where to start looking for trouble? I probably won't replace this anytime soon (adopting a child) and the system is dated so I will probably just look for components on ebay if I can't find something to fix (wiring?)

In over my head?

What is all this stuff and how does it work?
