Tan my boat isn't getting power to the instrument panel

Customer Question

Hi Tan my boat isn't getting power to the instrument panel after I put a new battery in the boat. I put a new battery in the boat because the engine would not start. I was just getting a click. The new battery did not fix the problem and now I have more problems.

Hello Nathan. There is an accessory wire that connects to the battery for the accessories at the dash. You should have a red and a black wire smaller than the batt cables. Usually a 10 gauge wire.
