Default 1998 Baja 232 Switch Panel switch IDs

Does anyone have a picture or manual or anything on their switch panel? Most of mine are wore off so I'm not sure what they are for.

​​​​​​My main issue is the depth sounder doesn't work and i can get it to work , the gauge powers up and I can set the depth alarm but it never shows a depth so i assume that one of the switches powers the transducer ?

Typically not a switch involved with depth gauge. If it powers up but will not show depth you probably have a bad transducer. You are in the water and not your driveway?

My depth finder is on a switch. Once you flip the switch it comes up and shows a number, blinking when it's not reading, then stabilizes. It lights up with the anchor/running lights.

The switch marked 'GPS' originally said 'Depth Finder' and powered the...depth finder, lol. But on mine it powered the whole thing on. I suspect you may have a bad transducer. I wired my GPS chartplotter into the same circuit as my depth finder so it turns them both on at the same time.

I have 1998 boss 232 -
sounder is 2nd to last on right.

my boat is getting trailer work today but I just redid my switches with labeled units so ill get you full layout. BUT if it has power then your transducer may be loose or unit is bad. switch brings power to unit.
