Question 2010 x2 ballast pumps

I pulled the kgb pump and checked for rust as well as cleaning it up. When I plugged it back in all three pumps no longer work. The switches light up and when I try to activate them all I get is a thump sound. I have looked all over for fuses or breaker and canít seem to locate them. I havenít tried it in the water yet. The boat is on a trailer in a garage. I am thinking the battery may be the culprit but it shows 11.6 volts. Also the tower forward lights wonít turn on. Any thoughts. New to the forum since June and have found a wealth of knowledge on here. Thanks in advance

Open the port side rear compartment and look the front wall. You should see the breaker box for the ballast pumps. Make sure all the white buttons are pushed in.

It should look like this, assuming its like my 2007:

Check the breaker panel under the helm. Little squish buttons you press to reset the circuits. Also check your battery breaker - if you have one. It might have tripped. Press the bar back into the breaker to reset it.

If you opened up the motors to clean inside the housing you might of not got the 2 small magnets around the stator tip back in place correctly.

On mine if you follow the power wires off of that box they go to a fuse under the transmission access hatch. There are three fuses all labeled ďstereo amp 60 ampĒ. Hope this helps.

I have the stereo labeled fuses on mine not the push button breakers. Those all checked out fine. For the rest of last season fill was empty and empty was fill? Not sure what I could have done to cause that. I tried to flip the pump thinking I installed it backwards but the hoses are too short to do the flip. Any ideas. Thanks in advance. This is only on the kgb pump that I cleaned. Of course I took it back oomff and disassembled the pump to make sure the contacts where correctly installed after I cleaned it the first time.....
