Eagle Ultra II

My dad has one on his boat, never been a problem before, but this year it will power up, run awhile then shut down. It will power right back up, then shut down again after a few minutes. Any ideas where to start looking?

Check the condition of the battery.

Clean the contacts on the power plug and on the sounder. Check the connections at the battery and or fuse panel. Clean the in-line fuse holder.

Zamboni,

Had the same thing happen to my old ultra classic, Lowrance wanted 150.00 to fix it. I bought a new unit instead.

It is the unit itself, no problems with the boat or wiring would be my guess. Buddy has the same unit as well, and has the same issue he just puts up with the powering off.

I wanted toupgrade to color when mine started to do that and I don't think I would go back to B&W again.

Mine did the same thing only it was hard to keep it powered on. It turned out to be the in-line fuse connections were going bad. I replace the whole red in-line fuse thing and no more problems.

Thanks guys, we are going to replace the in-line fuse wire and see if that helps, if not, must be the unit itself.

Zamboni, I had the same problem with mine. I called Lowrance and they sent me a voucher for $50-$200(depending on model) off of a new unit, no questions asked. I got the unit with a used boat that I bought. You might want to give them a call.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?

    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.

    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
