first, turn off the caps. there is no need to yell. second it is missing the diode kit.

the diodes allow the two dash switches to connect to the single throttle switch without back feeding from switch to switch.

Spend the money and have throttles built with dual trim switches rather than single, ditch the dash switches altogether and you'll never look back. Being able to trim both motors at once with your thumb and then tweaking either one without ever letting go of the throttles and trying to figure which dash switch top bottom to push.
