Default Vetus AP2 hydraulic autopilot

Hello, I have a Colvic Motorsailer with a Vetus AP2 hydraulic autopilot AP2 that just wants to go round to port in circles. Pump, RAM and valves all seem OK, New rudder feedback unit fitted.

I suspect that the control unit is faulty, is there anybody out there with a circuit diagram?

I am an electronic engineer and would have no problem repairing the unit (assuming parts are available)

Alternatively, does anybody have a control unit for sale, faulty or working for sale? Many thanks,

Welcome to the forum! You might try contacting Vetus directly and asking for a schematic VETUS.com ...
