Customer Question

I have a 1999 Bayliner Ciera 2855 Sunbridge. Right next to the ignition switch is a green light called a " Discharge Light", with instructions to shut down the engine if the green light is not on. Well, my light stopped working, (no audible alarms sounding), all gauges look great (oil pressure, water temp, amp meter, everything), engine running normal.
What is this "Discharge Light" that is no longer illuminated telling me?
I'm not finding any information in the owners manual, or on line.

That green light is connected to the fire extinguisher in the engine compartment (red bottle sais "fire bouy"). If that light is not on with key on then one of three things has happened, The light bulb is broken or, the wires have been disconnected or, the fire extinguisher has sprayed the bilge with fire retardant.
