electrical help >Boat Dashboard Power Loss<

I have a 2006 Triton 188 SF and have lost power on the dash. I turn on the switch but nothing happens. I have checked all the fuses I can find but have found nothing

Welcome to the forums.

Do you have a voltmeter or test light ?

I'm going to assume that you checked the battery as well as the battery terminals for corrosion ?

You should have multiple circuits. One is the battery to the engine. The ignition circuit takes its power from the engine.

Another circuit is lighting. Does that work ?

Did you pull the battery this past winter? If so, make sure you found and connected all of the wires. A boat usually has more than one wire connected to each terminal: On the positive terminal, a large wire connected to the starter, a smaller wire to the console, and sometimes more (stereo amp and trim pump, for example). If you missed either the red positive or the black negative the lights and accessories that are switched from the console won't work.
