    WHAT ARE THESE?

    OK, chasing down a 12 V problem regarding fuses blowing and GPS not working (see prior post). Whilst tracing some wiring from a blown fuse I can across these wires that were connected to nothing and what appears to be some sort of a sensor laying deck level inside the hull wall. The black wire led to the gray terminal. Anyone have any idea what they are?

    The unused electrical connection is just that. A connection for a component that was not installed on your boat, but is available for future use. The black item looks like a warning buzzer. Do your buzzers work? If not this one may have been disconnected by a previous owner (if there was one).

      the sensor is definitely a buzzer, but we cant tell you what circuit its on or what may cause it to buzz.... the other connectors could be something that a PO installed, and we still dont know what circuits they are on...

      a boaters 3 best friends are a multimeter, a short circuit finder and a wire tracer.... with these three items one can find any wire in the boat from one end to the other, and tell if its a live or dead circuit, or find the short within 10 minutes of connecting them.... and the testers are not expensive, especially considering what they can do and how much time and headaches they save.

      they could tell you what the buzzer is connected to.. and they could tell you what circuit the spade and deutsch connectors are on, but no gauge would be able to tell you what used to be connected to it....

        Black cylinder object is the engine warning buzzer. Like bhawes said the other connection is a spare for something you don’t have most likely.

          Is the second picture a connector or an in line auto style fuse holder? As stated the device is the alarm buzzer.

            Thanks all, I an the original owner of the boat so wiring not added by me. I used a multimeter and tested the wire connectors no power to them. Thanks for identifying the buzzer! Any idea what the gray connector maybe other than a dead end connector? I haven't seen its male /female connector companion at any stores to add to it.
