The windlass anchor on my 2005 Sea Ray 260 DA suddenly

Customer Question

The windlass anchor on my 2005 Sea Ray 260 DA suddenly stopped working. There is not a clicking sound when I press on the control switch. Can you provide me with all of the steps to take to try to repair this on my own?

Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

First step is to look at the fuse for the windless at the battery. If that is good, check at the helm for a fuse in the control circuit. Then remove the switch panel from the dash and using a multimeter check the wiring on the back of it for power. Normally red or orange. If it does have power, I will need the exact model of the windless to guide further.
