Hi guys
07 Hurricane 5.0gxi with no power on the purple instrument wires. Ground on instruments is good. I do have ignition power. All fuses at the helm are good as well as the ones in the engine bay fuse box. Is there a relay that the key switch energizes or something? I’ve followed the wire from the helm and it disappears into a harness on the engine.

The dash should be daisy chained to a fuse running off the ignition key. It will split a few times and run back to the motor

The purple wire is usually powered when the ign switch is turned on. It is used to run the gauges and their lights, as well as power the ign if necessary.
