    Do you hear a clicking sound? If not check the solenoid.

    Check the ground wires. Had a friend have something similar happen to this and he found a partially disconnected ground wire somewhere.

    Check the 20a fuse. It's common for it to blow from a bad bilge pump, & some genius at Yamaha decided to put the bilge on the same circuit as the ignition.

    On mine I had a bilge pump that was going bad but it kept blowing the 3amp fuse not the 20 amp! Bilge pump isn't really capable to draw that much unless it gest combined with a high load from something else on that 20 amp circuit?! Not sure!
