Crestliner Fishhawk 1750 Horn Wiring Question

Question

RosoRiverRat

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.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
