Wierd electrical problems

So went to start my 08x45 yesterday day and all good. Went out filled all my ballast turned on perfect pass, everything seems normal.. went to use the down button while tuning in the wake and it doesn't work.. then tried the up arrow and it works, the down and menu doesn't.. so I turned the boat off and the screen still stays on.. turned the batteries off and waited a few minutes, turned them on then the screen came on again. With the key out of the ignition. Low voltage warning came on. Low fuel came on.. stereo won't even turn on. Check all the grounds. Any ideas?

As stated it could be a weak or bad battery.

Also follow the positive cables from the batteries....do they connect to an isolator perhaps near the Perko switch? It seems some owners on here have seen a meltdown of these isolators for some reason.

I'll check the batteries tonight. As for the isolater I'll take a look for it when I pull it out tonight. I did kill my batteries the other day in the driveway. But charged them up and everything was fine for the next few trips out.

this. sounds like op has dual batts? if the isolator failed and the pp is staying on it could be improper wiring. the fact that its functioning with this issue is strange....

OP is the perfect pass aftermarket or factory installed?
