How do you turn on flybridge overhead lights?

Postby Carverct530 » June 17th, 2015, 12:14 pm

I have a 2006 Carver 53 that I just purchased. Love it. However I can't for the life of me figure out how to turn on the flybridge overhead lights located in the hardtop roof. I know I must seem like a complete idiot but I've had a few others on the boat to try to find the right switch. I don't know if a fuse isn't working or what but I just want to at least find the right switch first. On the flybridge helm there is no switch labor overhead lights. Help!

I believe...unless they changed it on the newer boats, that there should be a "courtesy lights" switch that should activate the floor and hardtop lighting. If the hardtop are not working, a wire behind the dash may have come off...or been pulled off.

On my 506, the hardtop courtesy lights are only activated when both the breaker on the panel is switched and the switch on the bulkhead is engaged.
