I just bought (at a very nice price) an 06 B52 V23 Team Edition and there are repairs which need to be done asap but I am having extreme difficulty getting and technical info needed so I can dive in. I've poured over this forum but not found the answers. My ballast pumps do not work but I don't know how the system is laid out to even start the repairs. The switch panel has no writing indicating what buttons to even push. I've flipped them but nothing happens. Does anyone have a service manual or anything...? Also, the perfect pass and depth finder is not working. Perfect pass is sporadic. Can anyone please help point me in the right direction?

I have an 04, I spent hours trying to figure out what was wrong with the PP. Wiring straight to the battery and some other steps.

After one of the PP reps walked me through troubleshooting he said I just need to buy a new unit, but it's not cheap.

As to the pumps, I've had to replace mine and one had already gone bad (I think). A bit frustrating. I tried taking the brand new pump that I had installed for my front tank this year and moving it to my right tank, but it's not working correctly and I can't for the life of me figure it out.

The writing on the switches is a hot mess imo. I'm not an electrician, can't figure out why you have 2 wires coming out of the pumps and 10+ terminals on the back of each switch.

Google a carling switch. Middle post are power and top is one direction of the switch and bottom is the other running fill and drain pumps on one switch.

The Perfect Pass went out on my 04 and I replaced the speed sensor, lake temp unit. Double check to make sure this is the right one. It's certainly a lot less $$.
