Crestliner Fishhawk 1750 Horn Wiring Question

7 posts in this topic

Hi there, Hoping someone can help me out on this. I have 2000 Fishhawk 1750 DC and my horn doesn't work. When I looked up under the dash I see it only has one wire (white) attached to it and the other prong is empty? Anybody know which color wire goes on the other side? I assmue that there should be two wires running to that horn button? ANy help would be greatly appreciated.

Jerry, there's always 2 wires going to any device:

the colored is +Positive, and the black is - Negative.

In your case you are missing the negative. Is there a connector unplugged or is wire broken off at horn ?

I would run a test light to white wire and press horn switch to see if test light will light up. If it works,I would try a ground test wire (two alligator clips, one on each end) from you ground post on fuse term block to the empty male elec. end from your horn. If horn works, find the missing end or run a new ground wire. If this does not work, I have had luck with cleaning inside of horn out and getting it to work.

It looks like there was never a wire on there. Ok dumb question here...Where's the horn located on these boats?

Thanks for the help guys...

Follow the lead from the horn button itselt. I'm assuming 2 wires are coming from that, one is hooked up to the actuall horn and the other is screwed into the aluminum wall inside the boat as the ground. Or it could be something simple like a blown fuse, try that first.

Absolutely not. There is no wire screwed to any part of metal on boat. Ground is not to body, or it will corrode hull in a matter of hours due to electrolysis.

Horn in in front of boat, you can see a black oval grille on the outside of hull. The switch has 2 wires attached to it, one is positive + from fuse block, the other to horn itself

I have the exact same boat except its a 03. I have never been able to keep that horn working. Its always blowing fuses. Had them replace the horn under warrenty once still the same. I've given up trying to keep it working. I have a hand held air horn for those needs now.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
