I have a 2003 sig 280.
There is a circuit breaker for the windlass, I assume in the engine compartment.
I cannot find it. Has anybody reset theirs?

I wish I could help you with specifics, however I am unfamiliar with the electrical layout of that model. All I can say is all my breakers are located near the battery switch, the helm or the salon breaker panel. I dont have any 'flyers' in random spots.
Good Luck.

There are 3 batteries on the starboard side.
If you look up from the battery closest to the stern.
It is attached to the gunnel(not sure if this is the right term) wall on the inside.
It actually may be easier to take out your side electrical panel and reach it from there.
I remounted it in a more reachable place.
As much as I like the boat. Chap. wired this boat like S##t!
The wiring under the dash is a mess.
Any electrical work has been a nightmare.
