  • Mariah Electric Hatch Lift

    Hi Gang, been a while since I had to post here. I recently picked up a super clean 94 Mariah Z255 Shabah. The previous owner disconnected and removed the electric actuators that lift the engine hatch, because he wanted more storage. I find the hatch a little heavy to comfortably lift so I re-installed them. Problem is, they still don't work. I'm no stranger to chasing electrical gremlins. But before I go chasing wires, I figured I'd do some research. None of the breakers are tripped. But the original manual and documents came in a bag with some spare fuses. I can't find a fuse box anywhere. And the factory manual doesn't mention one. It's got 6 pages on buoy identification, but nothing about a fuse box, go figure. So does anyone happen to know if there's a fuse box on this boat and where it is?

    factory manuals are basically a safety brochure and a list of servicing dealers

    follow the wiring under the helm

    if you have circuit breakers, you may not have a fuse box

    if you connect the electric actuators to a power source, do they move? if not, you may need new actuators.
