Archiving: Decoding the Raymarine ST4000+ nest of wires

Those who have worked on older boats know that most of the time a new owner finds a rats nest of wiring that was either left after rewiring when new equipment was updated or part of a new installation. In my case I really just wanted to diagnosis problems with a non-functioning autopilot … the “brains” being under a headliner with a bunch of wires dropping out. I needed access to the connections and it required me to remove all the screws holding up the headliner. To be quite honest, the condition of the connections and wires was better than I expected … unfortunately that may mean the problem is with the Raymarine ST4000+ itself.
