2012 pro 170

Have had the boat since Feb. 2012, no problems at all. Use it at least once a week.Yesterday out fishing I noticed the light on the side of the console was on. Before it was just on when running but now is on all the time. Had to take out fuse so as not to run my battery down. Any suggestions? I really don't what to take it to BassPro right now because I'm on vacation next week and will be out in it probably every day. HELP!
