Hello Steve,
Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
If you use a voltmeter from the battery to check power and ground ie checking ground use battery power, checking power use battery ground, this way you will find which is missing at the helm/console, from there you can trace back (most likely a main breaker or buss bar) and locate the problem. The most common problems are a power wire that was not connected back to the battery/switch, tripped breaker, broken wires, bad/poor connections (esp grounds).
Thank you!
- Joe
