View Full Version : ballast switches

06-15-2012, 11:07 AM
I picked up a pair of switches from wakemakers and note there are 6 leads but ultimately only two go in and 2 should come out. Anyone know why 6 leads and - if so - how to wire? On a related note i have eliminated my hydrolic hatch ( 2000 205v ) and am thinking that wiring harness ( which ends in two leads ) can probably be used as well. Has this been tried?

I'm pretty sure mine are hooked up like this.

Maybe it will work this time

meaning how? Do you know what the wiring plan is?

Do you have the aerators or the reversables? They each have a different configuration. I know aerators were the standard back then just not sire of you upgraded

That diagram I posted is for reversible pumps. I assumed you had reversible when you said 2 going in and 2 going out.

Aerator pumps would just be one pump connected to A and D and the other connected to F and C with Vs and ground in the same place.

Thanks again

wiring diagram from wakemakers. I guess it is actually a 7 terminal switch. in any case, for the next guy.....

7 terminal is functionally the same as 6, it just has a light

my plan is to pre jump 5+7 , 1+6, 3+4 and then just wire the remaining once in the boat.
