[CA] St6001 drops out of auto to standby
Bought a used 20002 Jeanneau sailboat last year that has a ST6001 autopilot that would not stay in auto. Did some troubleshooting and found the power supply wires into the course computer were not securely connected. I cleaned up the wire ends and re-connected as best I could and the auto pilot worked perfectly....for a weekend. Then back to the same issue, would fail from auto to standby almost immediately. I believe that the wire connection is the problem but need advice on a good method to secure the connection. The wire is #10 wire, which per the manual is the proper wire size to use, but the jaws of the connection at the course computer will not open any where close to wide enough to accept #10 wire. Have considered splicing on a short piece of smaller gauge wire or crimping on some type of pin connector that will fit into the jaws of the terminal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
