Electrical Issue

Need some help with the electrical on C22 1990
My boat has a small circuit breaker panel

It has a master cutoff and toggles for the following:
Cabin, bow, deck, running, anchor, accessory

When I switch on cabin the anchor light turns on (along with the cabin light).
Since they don't share any common wires, I assume the problem is in the panel
Does this sound common to anyone ? I have to say, I don't see a lot of corrosion in the panel. Everything looks clean. Any ideas?

I'm sorry if this is similar to threads that have been answered but I've searched and can't find one.

Re: Electrical Issue

Can't tell for sure but I would suspect the anchor toggle switch. Maybe a wiring 'fix' down stream of the panel. A couple of pictures of the front/back of the panel showing the wiring. Also check at the anchor switch for power. If no power at the switch then the wiring has been altered ( fixed).

Re: Electrical Issue

When you turn on the anchor toggle, does the cabin light go on?

Sounds like the cabin light and anchor lights are indeed connected.
