Hello, my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
Those all make sense except for the "M". What do you mean by M? Are there 4 posts or 5 on the back of this key switch? Do you happen to know who makes this switch?
No problem Gordon, it was just the M that didn't make sense,. The way I was reading that was that you had a 5 posts, which should not have been there.
wires. 2 red/purple, 1 yellow/red, 1 purple/red.Ignition - Purple/redStarter - Yellow/redAccessory - Not needed unless you have a stereo that you want to wire to the accessory positionBattery - Both Red/purples
I think that should do it I do want to make sure you are happy with the service I am providing to you before you go. Did you have any other questions on the wiring or do you think that covers it? --Jason
That is the way I had it, but it does not start.
Okay.... So really what you need help with is diagnosing a no start issue.... Corrrect?
It seems so, but I had to make sure the wiring was correct. Does that make sense?
I hear you. The wiring is correct.
Do you have a voltmeter or test light and do you know how to check for basic votlages?
When you turn the key to RUN, do your gauges come alive and do you get the beep?
When was the last time it started?
Did anybody install a battery, jump a battery, or charge a battery when it last started?
I have fully charged the battery.
Bilge and blower work.
No beep when I turn on the ignition.
I have a volt meter, but I will need assistance to use it properly.
I can't teach people how to use voltmeters, that is something you would already need to know on your own. It takes months at the college/trade school level to understand what you are doing with it, it's not something that can be taught over a forum.
When did this engine last start? Did anybody install a battery, jump a battery, or charge a battery when it last started?
