No dash power

Recommended Posts

Hi!!

Since yesterday I have a problem on my malibu response 2002.

When I turn the key, the dash doesnt turn on, and if I turn to the start position, nothing happen.

I thought it was the battery but I tested it and I have 12.8v.

Then I thought it could be the kill switch, but it is on "all", and the bilge pump is working if I activate it with the button. The lights of the boat are working too if I push the button.

So what could it be ?

The ignition switch ? But the key turn well like before...

Or is there a blown fuse somewhere ??

Thanks

Mickey

@Mickeypowa any luck with the safety lanyard (kill switch)?  You can remove the lanyard switch and short the wires to make sure the switch isn't defective. Mine had 2 purple wires and I just butt connected them together and used the old hole in the panel for an additional 12v power socket. 

I don't advocate removing a safety device, but if you're not using the lanyard at all then it's just another point of failure and it seems to happen regularly with these older boats.

I should do this... but I think I will fill the hole with a USB charger.  Good idea.

Actually there is a little circuit breaker on the engine and I accidentally pushed the red button when I was cleaning it.

Few hours to find out that !! I didnt now I had that just next to the big plug on the engine.

Thanks for your help!!
