I am loaded and ready to go this morning. I always check my batteries the night before, but last night I made a last minute decision to go fishing this morning.

I take off to the lake to find my continental starting battery dead at the ramp. I use jumper cables to try to jump it from my trolling motor batteries. It still wouldn't start, but all the other electronics are fine (they didn't have power before). I came home to see if I could charge the battery and go this afternoon. The charger would click to another setting for smaller batteries when hooked up to the battery. This is strange and I didn't know the charger would even do this. I put the charger on my deep cycle batteries and it worked fine.

Now, I decide to go to Wal Mart and buy a new battery. I put it on the boat and again the electronics are fine, but the outboard will not even make as much as a click to indicate it is getting power at all. I try the trim. Nothing.

What could be the problem? It ran like a champ last Sunday.

I couldn't see the fuse in the dark and found it a few minutes ago. Thanks. I still don't know why my battery being dead and putting a new one on there would have done this. All of my fuses to my electronics were fine. I will take the continental battery back. It is only 6 months old.
