HELP

Problem solved...The autopilot was installed on te port side, it came with a factory set for mounting on the starboard side and the previus awner have never used it and he did not have the owners manual.It was changed to the wright side and now it is working perfectly. To change the mounting configuration of the tillerpillot I only have to hold down the set/auto key and connect the tillerpillot to 12 volts then have to press the port key if I want the port hand munting.
Thanks to other tips
