06 X30 Ballast Issue
Ok, looking for guidance on where to start looking. All 3 ballast pumps (stbd, kgb, port) stopped working this weekend. The toggle switches for fill and empty still light up but no water in either direction. Any ideas?

when you turn them on do you hear them working, or nothing?
have you checked the fuses/circuit breakers?

odd that all three went at once. not sure on your circuit board but look there first

is it possible the inlet is blocked, if the motors are running it could be a blockage - unlikely I would think, but possible?

Nothing running at all. I'll check breakers to start. I found it strange that all 3 would stop at once

that is very strange. first guess would be electrical

I would get your multi-meter out and check for power at the plug where it connects to the pump. I had a problem with one of my relays going bad so the pump would empty but not fill. I could tap on the outside of the plastic box with the relays and get it to come on. Weird that all three pumps are dead.

Check the relay box and make sure the box is getting battery power. The power terminals inside the box might be loose.

Are you trying to fill/drain using the touch screen or the manual switches?

The manual switches need to be in the middle position to be able to use the touch screen

What is a ballast override switch?

Had the same issue with my 06 X15 early this season. My ballast controls went out with a full load. Issue? Corroded wires on the inside of the ballast control module. Easy fix
