Default Wired Nutz

I have a 1996 Maxum 3200SCR and am driving myself nuts trying to find the cause for fuses blowing in the Nav / Anchor light circuit. During this adventure I have replaced bulbs, replaced switches, and multiple fuses. I need to go to square one as during this process I may have, let's be honest, I DID, get the wire connections to the switches confused. It may have had something to do with attempting this trouble shooting after a moonlight cruise, and let's not forget the thick beer goggles I was wearing at the time.

With that said I have been chasing this "short" for some time and I am hoping someone will be so kind as to take a picture of the wiring configuration of the Nav Light and Anchor light switches. This will at least get me back to factory default settings with respect to what wires reside on which connector.

I know it is a big favor, but I am out of suggestions since wiring diagrams and factory assistance is nonexistent.

Much Thanks

take out all three bulbs, and then flip the switch, see if the fuse blows.

Then, install one at a time, until the fuse pops.

since the boat in fiberglass, I bet the short is in the switch on the helm.

My anchor light is jumped to the nav lights, so your cannot just have the anchor light on.

I'd bet you have two positives, and one is grounding to the negative, as the switches are in series.

See wiring diagram (Maxum 2400SCR 2800SCR 3000SCR 3300SCR Owners Manual (2000) found on the home page) for your boat starting at page 42
