    1998 Fundeck 226R - Electrical Schematic

    soundwavesoundwave USAMember Posts: 2
    Does anyone know if there is an electrical schematic available for my 1998 Fundeck 226R? I contacted Hurricane customer support - great people - but simply have no resources to help in any way. I'm able to trace my potential problems on my own if I just had a wire layout with a color code chart for this boat. It would take an enormous amount of guesswork out of troubleshooting. I spent the day trying to make sense of what appears to be someone's attempt at some  "modifications" - evident with cheap non waterproof connectors miscrimped and new runs of wire with a variety of snipped wires.
    My two biggest mysteries:
    1 - The reasoning behind why the bilge pump is wired into my baitwell pump?
    2 - The origin of a #10 Black wire with a blue stripe, and a #10 Red wire with a blue stripe running from driver's side hull hugging the wall ending up in the battery compartment - not found anywhere under the console within the cluster of wires feeding gauges and switches.
    I realize it's a seventeen year old boat - but my understanding is that generally, the "Fundeck" design has remained the same since 1973 - it's evident when comparing to the latest 2015 models. It's hard to believe that absolutely no reference or archive exists whatsoever.
    Thank goodness for this forum ......... there's some pretty sharp people here that have come up with solutions for others and myself, that no one else has been able to solve - I'm hoping this problem is one with a remedy!

      Welcome to the Owners Forum!

      I have clear drawings of the helm switch and instrument panel areas. Unfortunately, the hull wiring diagrams are unreadable.  I am sending you a Personal Message regarding it.  Look for a red number "1" next to the globe and envelope icons next to your Avatar in the upper left corner of the screen.  Click on the envelope, then click on my message to read it.

      I'm also attaching a Marine Wire Color Code chart that you may also find useful.

      To answer question #1; as far as I know, the bilge pump should be powered directly from the battery, separate from the baitwell pump.

      Hello, I am also a new owner of a 1996 226 Fundeck as well and would like to get the diagrams.  I have a short somewhere in the deck lights; the breaker pops whenever they are turned on.  I also have a broken wire to the rear Nav light.  It comes up from through the railing on the port side, but there is no power to the wires when turned on, yet the front lights work.  It looks like most of the rear wiring comes through a tube that I can see through the battery access.  Also the front floodlights don't work either.  Will I have to pull off the console to get to the rest of those wires it seems?  I can always attach new wires to the old and pull through, unless they are tied down somewheres.  Thanks, John
