Top 20 JBL Mbb 218 Cd Radio Questions & Answers

Do you have a remote unit? If yes unplug it. The black din plug at the back of the unit on the right. See if that does anything

What you'll actually need in order to get Sirius is a satellite specific receiver (the JBL SIR 2.5 Satellite Receiver). That should come with the antenna you need.

Since I know nothing about the radio on a Jaguar I thought I would not be able to assist on this one. However... I did find a link to the radio.

Good luck.

If there is a code, it will be stored within the radio. Sounds to me like it is faulty.

If a boat is anything like a car, the amp's negative post should not be connected to the battery, but to the ground of the boat. In a car, the entire chassis is grounded to the negative terminal, so when you run a line from the positive terminal of the battery to the positive post on the amp, and a line from the negative post on the amp to the chassis it is a complete circuit. I highly recommend placing a fuse on the positive line from the battery to the amp. Wiring this way prevents the amp from blowing up your battery, as well as prevents the battery from blowing your amp. Hope it works.

Winterizing is fairly easy. You can put the lower unit in a mix of water and antifreeze and run it to get all the water out and replaced with antifreeze. Next you can either spray fogging oil in and add fuel stabilizer to your gas tank.

Here is a link to more info.

I think there is a nut holding the prop to the shaft and there might be a shear pin going through the prop and shaft. Remove those to get the prop off. It may have been on so long, there might be rust and other junk holding it on. Spray with penetrating oil and let sit to loosen the rust.

Yes you reprogrammed your unit to bottom depth.
Go to settings and use the arrow buttons until you get to the top of the unit. The menu will have several different settings you need to change the sonar settings. After you play around with all the different settings you will see what I'm talking about.

Not knowing the engine manufacturer and horsepower it is still one of two items. Most of today's engines have an automatic oil feed if it is a two-stroke engine. The four-strokes have something similar, except it deals with maintaining a constant oil pressure for the engine and recognizes a low oil condition as well. Another potential issue is a restricted fuel supply going to the engine. Larger engines obviously, require more fuel. An air leak into the fuel line or a fuel restriction between the fuel tank and the engine can also cause alarms to activate.

I would start with the carbs. Buy new carb kits with float for each carb and clean and rebuild them then change the fuel filter before starting it back up.

Sounds like one of the pins on the cable from your transducer is bent where it plugs into the back of the unit. check that first, then ensure the plug is all the way in. If it's not that, it's possible a wire is broken in the cable. You could try the wiggle test. With the unit on, have someone watch the screen and wiggle the wire that you can reach working from one end to the other. if the screen flashes or changes while you do this in a certain spot, there's your problem. This kind of problem usually comes from the wire being tight where it goes around a corner. Heat and vibration will finish the job

If you are really interested, check to see if a library has this book : Chronometer Makers of the World by Tony Mercer. It should have info on the year of manufacturer.

Motor Guide Wireless Remote Pairing.
To pair a new remote, disconnect The trolling motor from batteries and re-connect. Then, within 10 seconds hold the + and - buttons until you hear a long beep indicating the remote has been paired.

I have one the New 115 Thrust and had the same problem.
This will correct your issue.
