Customer Question
Hi Pearl We have...

Hi Pearl We have a twin installation ec control system and the top station is dead

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Station?

2008 im guessing

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Station yourself? What have you tried so far?

Both stations were working, we disconnected the top station to make a new control panel housing

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When we reconnected the top station it did not work. I have two questions, Is it safe to drive with just the bottom station working, and secondly the obvious one is to where to start looking for the problem wityh the top station?

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Batteries are full this is on a yacht

I am sorry no one has responded yet. I know you must be thinking " I have been taken or this is a scam" Neither is the case. Sometimes there are more questions than we can get to and we just keep getting farther and farther behind. Sometimes what a customer asks, no experts online are confident their answer will be good enough. Is there any more information you can add to your concern or is there another concern you may have that we could answer instead?
