Engine Room Lights

Postby AlexHardesty » May 17th, 2018, 12:22 pm

I have a '06 41 CMY new to us as of end of last season. Getting ready for the '18 season and something continues to elude me... the switch to turn on the engine room lights. The DC panel light has a breaker which when I turn it on the indicator light comes on however, the engine room lights do not come on. I confident that there is another switch somewhere that I am just not finding. In my research it appears that on some models there is a separate wall switch near the phone plug (actually right above it) but I have no switch above the phone plug and no other wall switch seems to trigger the engine room lights. Anyone have any idea where the second switch might be on this model or if there is a breaker I am missing?

Thank you!

Not to be over simple but have you checked the light bulb itself, maybe some corrosion, maybe burnt out.....I think green light means power to light.....good luck man.... :beergood:

As far as I know there is no additional switch. The breaker is all there is and the green light is supposed to tell you it is sending power however it is really only telling you there is power at the out leg of the breaker. The lights (all 3 of them) are rather dim IMHO. Another modification I did by adding 6x 10w led light strips under the aluminum frame wired to come on with the existing lights. Lights up the engine compartment real well. Only problem is I now need to wear sunglasses when doing an oil change. :lol: :-D Bulbs or wiring, start by testing the most accessible one with a volt meter is my suggestion.
