I have a Polar Kraft
2004 165sc. Yesterday on the river I ran up river warming up my Yamaha
50 (2stroke). Did a couple of hole shots/WOT checking a test prop
performance ( boat is mine for 2 months only). Checked the trolling
motor and new seating by fishing for a few minutes. Batteries at full
charge when I left the house.
When I went to start the Yam. again I turned the key and all panel electronics immediately went off ( Humminbird etc.) So that was dead, no power to Yam. I looked for fuses in the main line and found 2 only ( 10 & 20 minifuses) both looked OK. I'm assuming these are stock and what is suggested by PK but could be aftermarket or modified by previous owner - can anybody tell me what PK specs. for these fuses ?
I couldn't figure out what would take out everything - Yam. fuse
shouldn't take out the other stuff, right ? I used the trolling motor
back down the river to dock. Got my jumper cables from car and tried to
jump the starter battery with the trolling mot. bat. that didn't do
anything either. ??? So I'm working on this today - re-tightening
everything, maybe swap batteries from my older boat. Have started
recharging bat. , replaced fuses - the panel switch lights now light,
but no sounds of power to the Yam.
I was looking at the wiring to the ignition switch - is there ever a circuit breaker at the ignition switch somewhere ? I don't see anything like that.. There is what looks like a sound speaker near it - is that some kind of warning device ? Can anybody give me some info on what should be connected to the ignition switch ? My other switches all have individual circuit reset buttons but not the ignition switch.
