Underwater Lights - Troubleshooting

Recommended Posts

LS1boarder

Hey crew! So I have a 2016 23LSV and it came with every option except for the underwater lights. I just installed the Seablaze X and they are bad a**! But I’m having a problem.... 

 

I bought the same harness as the boat uses and wired them into the existing wire setup. All works just fine (except I did blow a fuse and had to change to a 10amp). The lights are setup so that they cycle settings when you turn them off and back on. 

 

So so here’s the problem... I turn them on (cycles between blue and white), turn them off and back on (just white), turn them off and back on (just blue), then turn them off and back on again (white and blue combined) and they freeze in the on position. I have to reset the battery switch to turn them off again. The next setting is supposed to be strobe. 

 

Any clue what might be happening? 

 

Thanks all!

There is an issue using lights that aren’t the OEM lights without using a relay. Here is a recent thread on Lifeform LED wiring that should help you out.

I think the dual color SB-X need a more mechanical on/off. I think the Maliview timing of the off-on is not working for them.

If the lights draw too much power, compared to the factory lights, the power module circuit will sometimes lock in the on position.  The best way to prevent this is to use a relay to power the lights.

@LS1boarder did you ever figure the seablaze freezing in the on position?  I’m looking at this same setup for my 18’

No man, I just do the battery switch routine and power it off and back on. I want to figure this out though!!

@LS1boarder I put a relay on mine. No issues.
