    Exclamation Navigation light wont work HELP!!!!

    I have a 1992 Nitro bass boat, I'm having trouble figuring out why my navigation lights wont work. The light is a removable Perko bi-color navigation light with a utility light. I replaced the 3 contact housing with a brand new one, I turned on my switch to both navigation and anchor light, I'm getting power on both terminals of the bulb inside the housing, but the bulb wont light up. My anchor light works fine, but this is really stumping me. Anything will help thanks!

    First off- Welcome aboard Tidsy! Good to have you on the forum. Hope you find lots of useful information here, and share your adventures with us.

    First question I have to ask- are you certain the bulb is good? Second would be- are you sure it's making good contact with ground (the contact patch is tiny relatively speaking (the only 'secure' ground contact is the top of the locating pins on the sides of the bulb with the are they rest on in the top of the notch on either side of the socket. Grab a known good replacement, clean (fine sandpaper) those contact areas and give it another go. Let us know how you fare.
