I have a 2002 Dauntless. My bilge pump has stopped working. My toggle switch at the helm shows no indicating light when I turn on the pump. I have checked the pump and it will turn by hand, I checked the float switch, and checked the reset on the black box in the stern compartment that says " bilge". Any suggestions on what to do next. Seems like I have no power anywhere in this circuit.

This would get better response in the repair section.

I would use a voltmeter and check for power in the circuit and look for a fuse. If you find a blown fuse replace it, if it blows again start looking for why.
Could be a short, a bad switch or a worn out pump motor.
On some configurations there is a small wire that attaches to the battery + terminal, make sure that is connected.
