I was off on vacation and came back to find the light on my bilge pump switch at the helm on. I moved the rocker switch to the other positions to turn it on then back off and the pump didn't make a sound and the light did not go off. I can operate the pump manually if I want but it is wired directly to the battery too and will automatically come on if water raises the external float. The battery is on a tender and has 12.9 volts. In checking out some other things I see no water in the bilge but I know it was raining pretty hard while I was gone plus the drain plug is removed so water can drain there too. I now see where the separate float is broken away from its mount in the hull. Dang, the mechanic must have stepped on it when he was changing the water pump on the engine. I guess depending on its position, would this cause the pump to always be on and maybe it burned out? Is the light on because of a bad ground? I switched the main power on then blowers at the helm and tried to turn the key to start the boat. No alarm beeps or fuel pump noise like normal.....plus no start. It was too dark to continue any real investigations so I'll have to get back at it after work today. I think I'll have to start with the main fuse panel under the helm. Any other ideas where to check things out? I'm not too familiar with the electrical stuff yet. Thx.
