If the breakers toggle and stay in position, they should be good.

These things are very delicate. The circuit breaker uses a black plastic covering that holds the toggle in place. The cover can become very brittle and break at the raised boss that fits in the hole on the helm. The breakers are fit together as an assembly per row. If you take them apart, do so very gently so as to not break the coverings. The circuit breakers almost never go bad... it's the covering and the mechanism that holds the toggle in place that goes.

If you can carefully remove the breakers, you might be able to clean up the toggles with a plastic-safe cleaner. Regardless, they should be visible at night.

I believe you have to replace the whole thing. I know some guys have replaced them with LEDs.

Here is the switch panel. Only 1 that doesn't stay lit. It lights until another switch is thrown.


Dash lights



Couple more random pictures while I'm out here.

Figured it couldn't hurt so I decided to get them apart.















I played around at oriellys ctossing part numbers and played with google to find a 4.5" 100w spot rather than flood. Sylvania part# 4509. $12 each and they had 18 at rhe warehouse just a few miles down the street. Returned home poked that one back together. Did the same to the other side.

Original flood on left new spot on right.

Tom I like what you did with your switch panel. I could make something really trick looking to replace my entire panel but I really like to keep little things like this as factory as possible. I may add the blue switches later but for now I'll let these eat

With the docking lights finished I moved on to the interior lights. Only the ones in the ceiling worked. Found that the mood lights in the floor were just unplugged from the rocker switch. Then found there were some lights behind the little couches that weren't working. They were also unplugged.
