I have an 08 X45 and my two rear ballasts won't empty. Front ballast emptied with no problem but the 2 rear won't. The switches light up but nothing. Any suggestions??

Open your engine hatch and have someone turn on one pump at a time, verify that you hear them spin up. If you do hear them spin up then you should pull the impellers and check them for soft, broken veins.

Are you sure that the tanks are actually full? What do you hear when you flip them to fill?
It is the same pump, so you should hear something either way.

The gauges are notoriously inaccurate.

On my 2006 XStar there is a 3 button breaker box in the port side rear storage locker. It looks like a black box about 5x8 inch box with 3 white breakers on it, if they are tripped they will be sticking out and if they are not tripped they will be flush with the box.....try that, hope it works
