Was doing some hard over steering maneuvering at a friends dock yesterday when the power assist pump under the console started loudly over-revving (My description). It's a Sea Star 17.2 system turning twin 200's. The pump would run like that for 20-30 secs then stop. As soon as I touched the steering wheel it would start again and repeat the process. After the 7, or 8 times of it doing this, the pump did start to alternate between the high revs and what sounded like about half the speed, with no difference in steeering force. Turning the ignition off stopped everything, but as soon as I keyed on it started again. I was at idle speed during all of this, and considered attempting the run back across the bay to get home, but being at a friends dock at the beach, I just put the boat in his lift. Any ideas on what is happening? I read the entire manual this morning and found nothing that helped me make a determination. It did describe a light on the unit that may indicate a problem. I could not see a light on the pump while looking yesterday, and the manual does not indicate where the light is. Anyone know where the light is on the unit? Also, any recommendations on the best place to take it for service to the steering system? Thanks in advance for any help on this.
