Default AP24 won't power on

Everything has been working fine for months and this is the first problem i've experienced.

Was working on another problem this morning and had to disconnect the AC12 completely. I pulled the fuse (not the AC12 fuse) to the unit so power was off and then disconnected all of the wires. Reinstall went fine, I have 12v to the unit (multi-meter tested), green diode is on but the control head will not power on. None of the devices (ac12, RC42 or AP24s) are visible on the N2K network either.

I've triple checked the N2K wires in the terminal block and confirmed they are in the right color sequence.

Seems like an N2k issue. Could I have shorted something out if the wires touched since there was still power on the backbone?

Any other suggestions to diagnose the issue?

Check the power connection to your NMEA2000 network.
