VCP24SZ resets itself after 45 seconds

My VCP24SZ located at the helm of my 2000 Carver 506 resets itself after 45 seconds, repeatedly. Here are the steps:


1. I press the power button on the display panel

2. The temperature is displayed and the fan LED is illuminated as well

3. After a few seconds, the compressor comes on and the compressor LED is illuminated

4. The fan comes on and cold air blows just fine

5. After 45 seconds, the system shuts down 

6. Display goes 100% blank

7. After a second or two, all LEDs on the display illuminate for a couple seconds and relays click

8. Resume at 2


This sequence repeated at least 15 on my last trip.


The boat is located in the Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis Maryland. 


There is another identical unit located in the aft deck that shares the same sea water feed and has no issues whatsoever


There is no pump relay board wired in (I bypassed it last summer).


The system is behaving exactly as if power was removed to the system. Step 7 is what happens on all 6 of my A/C units when power is first applied to the units.


Any suggestions would be appreciated.
