I would like to be able to test the original transducer to see if it is actually bad or do I just have a wiring or bonding issue. I think I'm probably just going to be buying a new trans though.

Since it uses a standard plug you could find another depth finder that uses the same plug and try it. If I recall, I purchased a new digital depth here Standard Communications D41 Tracker Back-Mount Boat Depth Sounder / Finder Gauge | Great Lakes Skipper for $60 and figured that price was cheap, since the going rate for a mechanic is over $100 an hour, and my time is worth something, and now have a spare depth gauge, which will probably be out of stock before too long. I also dropped the new transducer over the side of the boat, to make sure it worked, before running the new cable through the boat.

I already bought that exact same part from GLS. I installed it last summer only to get the -- on the display. That's why I'm hoping to be able to test my existing Trans before I go out and purchase a new one. If I just need to rebond it to the hull, or refill a fluid reservoir, I'd rather do that than buy a whole new unit at this time.
