All information below MUST be completed


Troubleshooting Steps

Please complete ALL required steps below and check boxes.

Make sure to disconnect power to the thruster by manually tripping ezDrive breaker BEFORE checking propeller.


WITH PHOTOS REQUIRED AS STATED ABOVE

** Shear pin & propeller's hub can be inspected by blocking blade and removing nut. 


2. Check that all + & - lugs are secure to 10 lb-ft including battery, breaker, battery switch, fuse, ground, block & iBox. Then Reset breaker.


3. Check battery to ensure minimum of 12.5v output at terminals. IF LESS than 12.5V, THE BATTERIES ON BOARD THE VESSEL MUST BE CHARGED OR REPLACED.


4. Remove iBox cover and ensure that nuts securing the A1 cable to solenoid, A2 cable to solenoid, power (+) cable, and power (-) cable are all tight to 4 lb-ft. Test for voltage at iBox power supply inside iBox for minimum of 12.5 volts. iBox lid screws torque specification is 10in-lb


(Warning: During the next step, be sure not to touch the black and red wires together as this can cause instant short and potentially be dangerous)


For best results, use an alternate 12V source that is not related to the boat or thruster (such as a separate 12V battery). This eliminates the potential for a loose connection in the system to give a false result when testing thruster function.


Control System Guide

Testing ezDrive™ Throttle Control

Switch Your Multimeter to the Continuity Setting

Connect the RED lead from your multimeter to the WHITE wire in the delphi plug on the harness coming from your throttle. Connect the BLACK lead from your multimeter to BROWN wire in the delphi plug. Activate the thruster switch control in both directions. One direction should give audible alarm from your meter signifying that there is continuity.

With the RED lead still connected to the WHITE wire in the delphi plug, swap the BLACK lead from your multimeter to the GREEN wire in the delphi plug. Activate the switch in the opposite direction. You should get an audible alarm from your meter signifying that there is continuity.


Diagnosis: If one/neither direction works, then control is the problem. Contact ezDrive
