Hi Seamus. The person that wired this boat could have wired it a variety of different ways. If wired to factory specs, yellow should be the color of the wire on the back of the gauges for power. Can you look at that and tell me if that is correct. And if it is, trace the yellow wire back, where does it connect to? Also, do you have a meter or test light, and do you know how to take basic voltage measurements?

Hi Jason,
The yellow is not connected as this is power after the ignition switch Im on a red wire which gives me power to my instruments all the time ,The boat is an ORKNEY 520 and was factory wired.I really need to know if there would be any other hidden fuses,I wont be able to check the boat again until the weekend.
