Default Lowrance installation Problems

Hello from the Top End of Australia
I am having a problem with the installation of my Lowrance gen2 HDS10 and the yellow wire in the Structure Scan Module.
No matter what I try I cannot get the Module to light up and the manual is not very helpful
I have not been on the water yet as we are still renovating the boat after cyclone damage.
Thank you in advance

The red wire should be connected to 12V positive. This should also be fixed with a 10 amp in line or blade.

The yellow wire is used if you would like to wake up numerous units on the system from one button. An example would be structure scan, expansions points, etc. All yellow wires get connected together.

Quick question, have you been testing this on the boat or on a bench? If on a bench you need a really good power supply to get the units to work properly.
