View Full Version : Electrical Power?

04-28-2013, 09:46 PM
I check the boat once a month to make sure the battery is charged. It has an onboard charger and I have been charging it once a month. I checked it today and (to my surprise) there is no power....as in the battery is good (according to the leds on the charger) but nothing happens when I turn the key. Where would you look first?

The breaker in the compartment behind the spotters seat.

Make sure my dual battery switch is not in the "off" position.

Did the throttle get bumped? I bet it is something really simple

No power to anything but battery shows good charge. Battery switch is on. Throttle in neutral. I'll check breaker this afternoon. I'm sure it's something simple. Didn't have time to troubleshoot last night.

Lanyard connected. In neutral. Battery switch on. Battery fully charged. Breaker good. No power.

Do any of the dash switches work? Horn, ballast, nav lights etc

Ground come off the battery?

Ok. So I checked the battery and it is less than 1 Volt. I don't understand why the onboard charger shows the green ready light when the battery is clearly not charged.

Now you have to determine why your battery runs down in just 1 month.

Yeah. I was planning on taking it in to the dealership anyway to remove the decals. They can look at this also. It's just strange that it did fine all winter and goes out within a month of our first trip to the lake....just sitting in the garage. I feel like it has something to do with the onboard charger. It has been plugged in all day and still nothing.

How old is the battery?
