My wakeplate is not functioning this season. It worked fine before storage. It appears to have power at the steering wheel.

Many on this board have had this issue in the past. Check all the crimp connectors at the steering wheel. These tend to work themselves loose over time, I think especially if you use the tilt steering wheel often. The culprit on mine was the yellow wire. It's a tight squeeze, but take a look there.

Mine had that same problem. If I tilt the wheel up a few times, the lowest wire on the connection can/will work its way loose.


Now, to get me some Oakleys.

Thanks I'll check all the but splices and conectors. I just recently had my speedo not working as well! I checked under hull to see if there was blockage and the wheels spin freely. i'm wondering if i have a wiring issue now with my wakeplate not working as well. Is there any fuses for these areas. Is there any schematics available?
