12 V Revy

Hi All,
I got a used (it was never promised to work and it doesn't ) 12 v revy. I was wondering what are the stupid little things I should check first OTHER than if the battreries are in right. They are and they're new.

I disassembled it and don't see any signs of broken wires, corrosion or wear. Any advice?

Thanks
Tug

Try taking the toggle switch out of the equation by using a short piece of wire to jumper the connection and see if that works.

Oh, an even simpler possible cause: the sensor is dirty. Take a cotton swab or q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol and clean off the little eye. If someone broke paint in it and let
it congeal on the sensor, it could be reading like there's always a ball there.

Got a multi-meter?

You should be able to test if the switch is good, as well as continuity through the rest of the circuit.

I wish I had a meter. Maybe this is a good excuse to go get one!

Ok I used the meter on the boat and now I need help!

All of the wires have continuity (.3). The motor has continuity, the switch seems funny. The switch has 3 connectors coming out of the back ( since we're working on the connectors all references are with the toggle facing AWAY from me). The center and right connector have continuity with the switch on and none with it off, however it is low (.1). No other combination gives any readings.

Question #1- What is the next step?
Q#2- I'm a boat driver not an electrician, do these numbers sound right?
Q#3- What is the easiest way to jump the switch?

The batteries are new, the eye has been cleaned and I have a working motor from one of my kids toys that looks like it'll fit but it turns fast and I don't need any help chopping paint.

So any thoughts/ ideas/ slaps up side the head?
Thanks


Tug
