So here's the problem I'm having when I go to fill ballest all three swiches light up and the breaker in the back compartment starts buzzing. I thought the breaker had gone bad so when I got home and check it out all pumps worked fine. Back on the lake and same problem. Bring it home works fine again. The front and rear breakers are'nt tripping. It's like the pumps won't work under the load of water filling up to the pumps. I've checked all the wires everything looks fine. Anybody have any ideas what it could be?

Sometimes you have to figure it out yourself. The breaker box in the port locker has a negative and positive wire that goes to battery # 2. I removed the wires and cleaned and replaced. All the pumps are working fine . The connectors on the battery didn't even look dirty. Just wanted to let everybody know.

This happened to me on my 06 x45 and it happened to be the alternator was not working right so the buzzing was because of low voltage so I changed the display selector and my ballast started to work. It was random but worked for me.
