Follow-Up. I think mine is Kaput

So as a follow-up, I got my VOM fixed with a new battery. Tested the volts to the motor while my wife pressed +/- 10 deg on the course while in AUTO mode on the control. I got intermittent 0 to 2 V, more times 0 than 2. Power to unit is 12V. Unless the conductivity of the wire from the control head to the motor is intermittent, I think the unit is done.

So it is off to find a new control head unless someone has any other ideas.

If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
