[CA11] Wheel locked in standby mode
A dangerous situation happened twice this weekend. While cruising and without any warning the steering wheel locked. The auto pilot was in standby mode, I had to drop anchor to avoid crashing into the bank. This happened on Saturday and again the next day. I've had the unit; ACU400 mechanical drive; for several years without any problems whatsoever. But this is a serious situation. The wheel released on it's on after about a minute or two. Any advise please.

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum dhiggins286,

The reported symptom is would indicate a problem with the clutch of the autopilot drive unit. It is accordingly recommended that the mechanical linear drive be sent to Raymarine’s Product Repair Center to be bench checked / serviced.
