Have a 42 sail and for several years have had a 12 v socket mounted at the steering
binacle to insert a 12v fan plug
or a spot light plug
. Finally rusted out and disposed of the 12 v spot light. Wired it to the ignition switch post, a black and a red. Worked perfectly for years.
New socket, wired the same way and bought a new 12 v. spot from West Marine
. When I plug the 12 v fan in , it works perfect.
When I plug the spot light in, and turn it on, the engine
I've tried to change the wiring
on the ignition switch, but it doesn't help, it just turns on the oil alarm
. Any ideas?
