Customer Question

I have a 2005
Powerquest legend with a 496 merc. My problem is I've lost all power to my helm while the boat was sitting in the hoist. I've changed the perko switch and both battery's. I've also checked all grounds and connections. My 30 amp breaker is also fine. Thoughts?

Is there another place to get the serial number outside of the sticker on the top engine cover? No one ever filled in the info
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
It would be on a metal plate on the engine block, just above the starter.

Way down there. Can't get to it
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
Lets start with this. What works and what doesn't work? When you turn the key to run, do the gauges come alive?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Very little. They are pulsing
