Radio Fuse 2008 217LS

All,

My radio has gone on the blink, before I pull it out and test it. Anyone know if there is a fuse or cct breaker I can check and where ?

Thanks

Steve

There is usually a fuse or circuit breaker near the battery that can "pop." Best to check voltage on supply wires at the radio with a multimeter. That would rule out everything from battery all the way to radio if you have voltage there. Don't forget to turn the boat "ON" with the key.

Yeah was planning to check the 12v at the radio when I get a chance. Doing some research here seems there are some fuses inside the dash, but will check near the battery as well.

Electrics are my trade, so not phased looking into, just time poor and one more job. Just hope its a simple fix and not the actual radio itself

Yep, best to start with the under dash breaker panel. But if popped, something made it. (Although I have seen fuses themselves go bad.)

My gut feel is it will be a HR joint based on corrosion

Well over 2 years later I have fixed my radio. The Radio battery wire goes to the 2nd positive connection on the Accessories switch at the helm, the spade connector had some corrosion, and fixed. Will miss the engine revs
