Gauges not working...until

The weather this spring has sucked. So much so that I'm just getting ready to get on the water. I removed battery tender, switched key to first position and 'nothing'. Fuel gauge, volt, etc didn't move. Horn, lights and radio worked. Figured I must have a ground problem somewhere. Got busy getting everything else checked out and forgot about it for a few days. Next time, first key position and 'nothing'. The boat has never had an electrical issue, all wiring and contacts are in good working order. Then I remember that I'd disconnected the kill switch lanyard Popped in back in and everything works. Sometimes it's the little things...glad I didn't get the test light out.

At least it didn't cost anything to fix.
