Autohelm 4000+ fixed...yea!
A big thanks to whomever put me on to Dan from Colorado who fixed my Autohelm in short order. I was getting the famous "low battery" warning. Well I traced it and found there was something wrong with the head unit. I sent it to Dan (who also has many Autohelm NOS parts) and he found it had 5 bad power transistors and a bad integrated circuit chip. Fixed...done. 2 week turnaround including shipping from MA.

Dan fixes Autohelms as a hobby and charges very reasonable rates!

PM me if you want his contact info as I'm not sure it would be okay to post it.
If a moderator reads this please let me know if I can post it.

Thank you,

Hi Chance,

Here's the problem. I 'm sailing on vacation in my Maine for the next 10 days and of course that info is at home. :)
He often has "autohelm" parts for sale on ebay so you may have for luck. Finding him that way.

Sorry...I will get it to you when I get home.
