My lcx 18 did the same thing this summer. It ended up being a bad electrical connection!

so i messed around with the units last night. the x-15 works in both boats at all three hookup points. the x-19 resets at all three hookup points. checked the connectors on the back of the unit and they seem fine.

any thoughts?

Did you try the Lorance Web sight for ideas?

I had the same thing with the Eagle Ultra Classic that came on a used boat I bought this summer. I e-mailed Lowrance and without doing any diagnostics or hardly any hoop-jumping, they just sent me a Rebate letter that gives me between $75-$400 off of a new unit. They said it was because my unit was too old, they didn't support it anymore.

It hasn't happened for a few weeks now, so I think the previous poster was probably on to something. Do you have a voltmeter? You could hook one up for a few minutes and see if the voltage drops when you put a load on the system. I'm not a mechanic or anything, I've just been trying to figure out the same thing recently.

mtreno I had a x-15 do that before (the x-15 you have now replaced it) Lowarance sent me out a new one and never really told me why. I called them up and told them what was going on and a new one was sent out. Rumor had it that it is the same problem as a computer crashing, it gets confused and shuts down...like it had to much to drink.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.
