Autohelm help

Having trouble with my Autohelm 7000. When switched to auto it is frozen on one heading and turns us in circles. Does anyone have a suggestions on where to start my search for the cause. Thanks.

Assuming you have calibrated the flux gate compass:

Any metal near the compass? Speakers, engine, gas tank, etc?

Your hand held or VHF can throw it off.
