View Full Version : resetting timer on ballast tank?
06-06-2011, 04:33 PM
So I had a 450 sac added in my port locker, integrated into the hard tank. Went to fill it up but the timer shut it off before it really started filling up. Is there a setting on the BIG that you can extend the timer so it fills for several minutes more before shutting off?

Im glad to hear that you cannot get it to work either...I have an '07 x15 but bought the 20 min timers... cant get them programed to fill ballast, then fill overflow system fat sacs and still spit out the sides when totally full. Actually never get them full because the timer times out. I followed the directions from MC that came with the new timers.
wish we could both figure this out!

i dont know if I just had luck or what but it worked for me on my 08 X45...here's what I did..i found that I could only do one pump at a time
turn battery switch to off position
make sure pumps are unplugged
disconnect both batteries and let sit for 30 seconds
turn battery switch on
cycle pump switch fill-off-drain-off 5 times(the switch will light up the first 3 times then turn off- you will know you are in program mode once the switch lights back up and starts flashing)
once in program mode move switch from off to fill to increase time and count the number of flashes-keep doing this until you get amt of flashes you want-i went to 16
stay in off position for a while(10 sec+) when you have got the correct number of flashes
I then swtiched to drain then back to off to complete the programming.
worked for me hope it does for you
