How to wire a 12 volt automatic bilge pump. In a boat.


Hopefully the float switch for the Bilge pump is under the engine not the pump motor. Having an electric motor under an engine is a fire or explosion hazard Find the float switch for the motor and follow the tubing back to the pump. A replacement pump should have instructions. Only the pump intake should be in an explosive environment.

bilge pump on 1996 nitro bass boat inop


Check to make sure the fuse is good and you have power going to the switch and then to the wires (brown for positive and black for negative) in the bilge area using a 12 volt tester. If you have power to the brown wire while grounded to the black wire then the pump will need to be cleaned, have the impeller replaced or replace the pump. The pump is located in the rear compartment attached to a board mounted to the inside bottom of the boat at the center near the transom.
