View Full Version : 28 ZX hatch actuator problems

07-13-2013, 05:35 PM
I had the original factory acculift actuator and after a while I found it was very slow to the extent that I had to help it manually to even open the sundeck. So I concluded it was giving up and I went out and bought a new hardin marine from cp performance. Installed it and I still need to help it manually to open the sun deck. Now I'm clueless, what is wrong. Is there a factory relay that could have gone bad? Anyone with any ideas?

It certainly sounds as if you are experiencing a power problem.
Could be a bad ground, or bad power lead.
Using a meter, see if you're actually getting 12v to the unit.
Try using a jump wire to ground...get inventive.

Is the hatch / Foam full of water? can you lift it by hand?

is the battery 12 volts or greater?

With the motor running is it the same issue?

That cover is heavy.
