HI Michael went to the boat last night and disconnected all leads left for half an hour but light is still red what is my next move

Expert:  Michael replied 3 years ago.
Hi Paul sorry to hear that.
This means something internal was damaged when the short circuit occurred.
You will unfortunately have to have that serviced, because specialized test equipment and knowledge are needed to determine exactly what part has failed.
it may be as simple as a single component, but they may elect to replace the entire circuit board in this case.
I will be here if you need any further advice;-)
Have a great day Paul, I wish I had better news for you I really do, but even me as a tech has this happen to me lol.
