    No power to gauges or trim switches

    So i installed livescope and a 10” Echomap Ultra today and decided to rewire other electronics to a busbar so i can turn them all on/off with Livescope. All of the new and old electronics are working, deck lights, livewell, bilge etc. but i have no gauges, ignition or any of the trim switches. I took alot of the panels off , seats etc to run new wiring. I started to take off panel holding throttle and realized that probably wasnt a good idea or necessary. Anyone have any suggestions??? Went from super stoked to super bummed pretty quick. Any advice would be appreciated

    I guess i should mention that its a 2015 175txw with 60hp fourstroke

    Call Tracker customer relations and ask for the wiring diagram for your boat to be emailed to you. After you have it, use a multimeter to verify 12v at the connections. You'll find the issue

    Go under the cowling on motor. There is fuses there that you must of ground and blew. To start, look for a 20 in a yellow plug. On front of motor, on top of air in take.

    Did you rewire with the battery disconnected? Blown fuse(s) is a good start.
