    getting lost engine com error.
    Then I smelled burning. Found out this part has a short of some sort. Right behind the steering wheel. Apparently the harness hooks up to the junction box of smartcraft. Anyone know what this is? So I can order a new one. Are they know to short out?

    Looks like a “clock spring”

    It winds and unwinds as the steering wheel is turned, and allows the steering wheel buttons to function.

    Thanks for all your replies. I unplugged it from the junction box and all beeping went away. Buttons on steering wheel won’t work but that’s not important. Incredible how something like this can disable a boat.
    Will order the part. Thanks for the replies.
