Default Light bulb outlet

Ok so one of my light fixtures in the bathroom is not working at all. Ive tried about 5 different bulbs in it including all the regular bulbs that came with the boat and like 3 led's. None of the bulbs will work. Does this mean something is wrong with the fixture itself i guess? is there any troubleshooting i can do for this? Thanks in advance

take a volt/ohm meter and check for 12 vdc.....if your not gettng 12vdc..then there is a wire failure somewhere....pull the assy down and check the wire connections.....corrosion is your worster enemy...

its one of the outlets that have the wedge bulb so when i did the meter i got nothing but i used it on the outlet that does work and still go nothing so i don't think there are good connections to check. i guess i will unscrew and see whats going on behind it. if wires are fine i guess i did something when trying to find what led's would work in the wedge outlets. Thanks seapuppy

Check the switches, I have found more problems with the on/off switches than anything else.
My 1990 Maxum was sold today. I had it less than one year, but it was good to me!

Pull the light, cut the pos/neg wires and test there. Do the same on the switch, unless the switch is built into the light.
