Customer Question
I have a 2016...

I have a 2016 sea chaser and the power to the switch board on console, lights and radio stopped working when I was upgrading the amp

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Only found a 20 fuse and two inline fuses both of which seem fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

Hoping there is a fuse I have missed or something simple
