Customer Question

I have a 1996 Evinrude 150 Ocean Pro. The motor will start with the switch in the start position and die when in the run position. I have replaced the switch and it is the same. I was told it could be the power pack, stator or rectifier. What is you opinion.

Hello. My name is Tan.

Have you disconnected the kill switch black/yellow wire from the kill switch?

No change
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I removed the kill switch wire at the key switch.
Expert:  Tan replied 2 years ago.

No you have to remove the wire at the kill switch. The kill switch is indepandant from the key switch. Unless the kill switch is incorporated with the key switch.
