Default Tracker wiring diagrams??

Does anyone know where I would be able to get a wiring diagram for a Tracker boat? I tried Bass Pro and they don't offer any anything as far as shop manuals or the like. Owner's manuals don't go into the detail that a shop manual do.

Suggestions?

The only place I have tried is Bass Pro, only because they are pretty close and it's their house brand. There has to be something like that out there, because I was looking under the console and there is a big mess of wires there.

I would like to out a radio in the boat, but I don't want to take it to some electronics store where they deal primarily with cars, and some high school kid is guessing which wires are which.

I guess I'll try all authorized Tracker dealers first...

I don't have an owners manual with a wiring diagram but my targa has a bunch of wires also. When I started checking them out I found that they had run a couple of extra sets of wiring while the boat was being built. There were extral wires in the bow and in the back inside the strorage area. Worked out great for me as I put a setup for depth finder in the front and rear so I could use my second depth finder in the front off the trolling motor or in the back with a second transducer for LM fishing with out having to run new lines. An unexpected bargain.

Bobby -

Specifically what type of Targa do you have? I just purchased a Targa 17, and when I disconnected the accessory battery, and I didn't take note of which wires went to which pole. There is a black wire with a tag to attach to + terminal, with 3 other wires.

I don't want to just start trying a trial and error, as the boat is brand new and has never even seen water...but I figured a wirind diagram would be handy to have anyway...

I would definatly try Holiday. They are a Authorizerd Tracker dealer. And probaly the largest other than Bass Pro. I purchased a boat there earlier this year and know they have a large knowledge as well as parts store. I believe they sell shop manuals too. What kind of boat do you have? I bought a 2004 PT 175 and i too see many wires especialy at the fuse block. When I picked my boat up they told me that Tracker does intentionally put in wires to the front and rear of the boat just for the conveince of customer add-ons. If you find any other place please post where.

It's an '04 Targa 17 SC w/ Merc 75hp. Brand new...

I bought it on eBay as a scratch and dent model, because when the factory put the shrink wrap on it, they got the plastic too hot and it damaged some of the paint. Nothing is wrong with it! I got a heck of a deal on it, about $3000 less than what I would have paid at Bass Pro if I would have bought it there. The dealer I bought it from siad he made $0 on it, other than rigging charge.

It just makes me sick, because I haven't even had it in the water yet, and I want to go, but I don't want to screw something up!
