Default No backlight - Garmin 182c

Hi all,

I just picked up my new (to me) 17cc from storage and the Garmin 182c seems to work ok but the display will not light up so I can barely see it.
I adjusted the backlight display to max but it didn't change at all

I read another thread where someone had a power issue that caused this but I am pretty clueless about diagnosing electrical issues.
Could someone give me a few pointers on steps to take to diagnose the potential problem? I have access to multimeters or any other tools but not sure where to start.
I just shot a ton of $$ getting my boat, getting it ready, marina, etc so my wife will KILL me if I need to sink more $ to get this thing fixed/replaced
Thanks in advance
