Starter will engage and spin the engine but engine won't

Customer Question

Starter will engage and spin the engine but engine won't start until you release the key from the start position. It seems as though the ignition power is disabled while starter is engaged.

Key switch kills the spark to the engine when the keyswitch is turned off. Check the keyswitch to see if the kill terminal is being shorted out when key is turned to start. May be just a bad keyswitch.
