    Hi guys,
    Second day on the forum! Man do I have issues I need help with. The control panel on my 2002 230 signature bow rider isn’t working. Not horn, lights, bildge, depth finder, windshield wiper, nothing. I spliced into the blower and hooked it up directly to the battery and it works so the problem is the fuse box or the keypad.
    I changed all the fuses and hit the text button they all light up. Is there a way to test the keypad? Here are pics of the keypad and fuse box....
    Thank you so much in advance!!!!

    More info.....
    I was sitting in the boat doing work with the power on listening to the radio and all of a sudden the main fuse box started buzzing and out of nowhere the windshield wiper turned on by itself. I turned the key off and it kept going. I had to turn the main battery switch off to make it stop.

    The “fuse box” is an electronic device called an EIM that creates a small network with the switchpad. Based on your most recent post it sounds like it kicked the bucket. While some of the EIMs Sea Ray used are no longer available, some still are. A call to a dealer’s parts department might be in order. If yours is no longer supported there are some work arounds.

    It's a CANBUS based control pad. Do not take it apart if it is ok it will not be afterwards!

    The only way to test it would be to have a specialized CANBUS reader/monitor or just swap it out with another that is know to work.

    Did you get the EIM working again?
