Electrical issue

had the battery replaced. Now my panel does not work. No lights, horn radio or depth finder. I think they have a wire on the wrong terminal on the battery. Boat starts and runs, no electrical. How do you know which terminal goes where?

    I have found that, generally, the wires are red that attach to the + terminal and almost always black that attach to the - terminal. If it appears that the wires are attached correctly I would look for a fuse or circuit breaker connected to the red wiring. a blown fuse will give you the same situation that you are experiencing.

    Good luck, keep us posted on your results.

    I agree with what Carguybill has said. You should give a try to the method told above, or else you can even consult some expert electrician to get your electrical issue solved. Some of the electricians I know are Electricians Bryn Mawr PA, JVD electric and Kelly electric. These are the professional electricians who offer electrical damage repair service and are expert in repairing the wires too. You can consult any of them and can your motor wires repaired easily. Good luck.
