Hey crew... got another problem with the bu. Every time we turn on our nav lights, our interior lights or our dash lights, the breaker pops. Where would you look first for any problems? Would call the dealer, but their closed Sunday and Monday. Thanks in advance.

You have a short somewhere in the wiring for that particular circuit. My Bu's bow navigation light was not working. I changed the bulb and still nothing. I put a meter on it and turned the switch on, and nothing. I noticed the breaker was popped. I reset it, and turned the switch and it just tripped again.

I was able to get my hand up under the bow cushion area and I could feel the bow wiring leading to the light had rubbed over the years (it is a 1997) and shorted itself. I patched in a new piece of wire and shrink-wrapped it with heat wrap, and it is as good as new.

It is a PITA to trace the circuits, but my guess is that is your problem also. What year boat?
