Default Livewell Pump not working

Ok, so i did some troubleshooting before posting this. I have a Sea Hunt CC Bay Boat and luckily i have 2 live wells so i was able to do some swapping. So from what i have found, both of the pumps work. I was able to hook them both up on the "good" circuit and found that both of them will run. I tested the on/off switch by placing the "good" pump wire on the "bad" switch and the switch turned the pump on. From what i can tell there are no fuses just the circuit breaker on the switch itself. So here is my dilema, I know that both the pump and the switch work on the "bad" side but when i turn the switch on, it does not run the pump. The only thing i have yet to do is test the wires that go to the pump and the switch to see if they have continuity. Is it likely that i have a bad wire running from the pump to the switch because that's what it is looking like it could be. I just don't want to rewire this thing if there's something i'm missing.

You need a Power Probe then you could tell if you are getting power and ground. This one tool will help you troubleshoot an and all low voltage problems. It's the only way to know for sure what is happening.
