    since you moved your hds unit.. was the yellow wire from the pwr cord from the console hook up to the lss-1 yellow wire?? If so.. you need pwr your yellow some where else from the lss-1. since you are moving it back and forth. (yellow wire from your LSS-1 pwr cords.)

    Thanks , that is exactly the problem. Can i splice the yellow lss1 wire from the dash into a hot wire (lights) that runs up the bow. Or do i have to run a seperate wire from the lss1 yellow wire and splice it to the yellow power wire on the unit heads power cable

    Think you need a yellow from the front power cable connected to the LSS yellow along with the yellow fom the console power cable. If you connect yellow direct to a hot wire you will need a on/off switch so LSS won't drain the battery, yellow having power turns on LSS so it would always be on if wired direct to hot wire.
