    I have a bass boat and the power switch is not working i think. I checked the wires coming to the back of the switch and there hot. but when i turn the switch on nothing happens. The boat motor will still turn on its just my pumps and lights and live wells don't work now. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Its possible you have a bad ground. Your hot wires could still be hot, but if you do not have a proper ground the switches will not work.
