    Hello, I am struggling, I ha e bought a 2005 Azimut 50 and the raymarine Autopilot computer had been removed.
    I am trying to fit another one, I have found the wiring for the compass and the rudder indicator and the solenoids but cannot find any wiring for the hydraulic pump. I am not sure if the thing runs all the time or just when required. Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Have you found the pump? What solenoids?
    If is a high current pump, the solenoids may drive it.

    Thank you for taking an interest, it turns out that it a constant running pump which gets its feed from the port engine ignition. The pump had a bizarre wiring terminal fault which was throwing me off but I got there ( more luck than judgement). I am still intrigued to find where the relay is but for now at least I know how to wire up the auto pilot. Thanks again.

    I still have my Robertson constant running pump on our old Bert.
    Kept it while upgrading from the Rob-1000 to AP-28.
    I luv it. Nothing faster.

    Usually a constant runner draws a bit of current. Nice fat wires from the battery controlled by the pilot thru a nice power relay.
    Maybe your port ignition switch is turning on that relay (somewhere).

    I would hate to think the pump motor is running while not in use.

    Yep it is controlled by the ignition circuit, I was kind of hoping it was brought into play when the solenoids were activated but that is not the case. At least I know now that if the engines are not running the motor shuts down.
    Thanks
