Chasing down a problem with my installer (Jesse Saint) on my system and signs are pointing to it being the ARINC module and not wiring.
Easiest way to confirm is to swap mine out with a known good one and see if I start getting data pushed over to my SV from my GTN-625 (unlike now).
PM me if you have one I could use for the test.
And, thanks in advance!
Chasing down arinc issues is a pita. I don't know about the 625, but on the 650 in the set up screens, there is an option to display arinc data real time.
I had two vendors both stating that the other had to be at fault. Once I could see the data and prove it was being transmitted, I was able to quickly determine the device that had failed.
Even after I provided the vendor real data, they continued to try and blow smoke in my face. There are typically only a half dozen arinc labels used. One of the labels was for glideslope and another one was for the heading bug. They were both all 0's, so the vendor stated that is why GPSS wasn't working. Fortunately, a tech at the other company helped me translate the labels to each of their functions. While I was on the phone, I put the EFIS in heading mode and instantly got a bunch of 0's and 1's. Naturally, there is no way to get glideslope information sitting my hangar.
The end result was the EFIS was ok, the ARINC adapter was ok, and the ARINC receiver card in the AP head was toast.
