Default Need some help with Furuno 841 radar signal cable

I moved my Head unit from the console to the e-box, instead of cutting the wire I pulled all the pins out of the plug, opps. I thought I put it back together right but I can't seem to get a signal. Any diagrams or anything available or should I just buy a new cable. Thanks

Buy a new cable. get the shortest one. you cannot shorten it any shorter because you won't be able to calibrate the sweep timing.

Did you "map" the connector before you depinned it? Also did you make sure all the pins locked in place when you repinned it? PBR is right about shortening a cable. It CAN be done, but you will have to get the scanner re-calibrated.

2 things. Contact Furuno for a pinning diagram and make sure all your pins are locked in place in the connector.

I did map it, that's the weird thing, I double checked everything, but I probably didn't make sure all the pins locked. Thanks about the heads up on Furuno's pinning diagram, I thought I might be dead in the water when I saw the diagrams in the book, all Japanees.
