Default Lenco's stopped working and LEDs flashing some kind of pattern?

So I took my boat out today and my Lenco's stopped working. They are connected to an accessory switch, when you flip the switch the tabs automatically raise and the LED indicator shows them as raised, then you can lower them how ever you want. So today I go to flip the switch and I don't hear them raise like I normally do, then the LED indicator starts flashing some weird sequence.

Here is a video of what its doing...

Anyone ever see that before?

And nothing happens when you push the trim tab buttons.

The first thing I would assume is that the Acc switch is bad or that the ground side of the acc switch does not have a good connection. How old is the switch? It doesnt have to be too old if it has been exposed to salt water spray. .I have had several boats with Lenco tabs and have never seen them wired through an Acc switch.

Something has failed. Their customer service is great and will send out a new unit once you send in the defective one. I don't know what those codes are saying is wrong, but a quick phone call to them will fixe it. I had a trim tab motor fail. From the time I sent in the broken one plus received the new one was 8 business days, including my shipping and theirs.

Default lenco

if you can see rear of switch, check wire connection.Older models were sealed with some type of soft material like silicone, later models were sealed with a type of hard epoxy. Earlier models the wire would pull out, I guess from the pounding. Due to the change in materials it seems they realized there was a problem and made a fix. Hope this helps
