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

Most all locators have an inline fuse or are wired off the fuse panel in the boat. Start with looking on the fuse panel for a fue that may be blown. If you cannot locate one there, Follow the power connection wire to there you begin to see the red and black wires. In the red wire, between the boat and the locator will be an inline fuse. Make sure that it is good as well.

Let me know what you find out on them.
