1993 Prostar no NAV lghts

So I have power to blower, bilge pump and the AUX switches to the left... Just tried to go for a night cruise before winterizing and bam..... no lights... Pulled the dash and panel and nothing seems f...ed up so I assume I have a bad switch.. I may try and move the wires from the NAV to the AUX and see if the lights come on?? Not sure whats up.. Only thing I have done this summer was replace the ignition switch.. Can't recall if I have run the boat at night since replacing ignition..

I'd check bulbs too. All mine were out when I bought my 95. One thing I forgot to check before buying!

The nice thing about this era of boats (mine is a '92) is that it's very basic 12V wiring. No computers, nothing digital, just a hot wire, a breaker, a switch, and outgoing 18 ga wires to the accessory. It shouldn't be too hard to track down.

I may have messed the switch up when I was messing with it... Did not have my voltage meter at the lake house so I could not test it. Any idea where I could get a replacement switch that matches??? The ones that are original have a green light when turned on.. All of the other switches are working properly but the NAV green light does not come on and lights do not work..

Those switches are hard to find. I am following the thread to see if you find a rocker switch like those.
