Hi, Thanks for taking my question. This actually is aboard my boat and I have a marine engine it is a Volvo Penta and I was just down to run the engine for 40 minutes or so for good maintenance. However after I pulled the kill cable which is normally how you shut the engine down I forgot to turn off the ignition switch. So it was in the on position for a week!
OK thanks for the information. I have a deep cycle marine battery and I really need to know in more detail what actually happened in terms of the circuit. The actual step by step blow by blow. Like ....the ignition switch when left in the starting position causes the circuit or switch to remain open ...........and there may be a fuse in the line or blah blah blah in other words give me a step by step list of the possiblities and typical wiring setups of marine engine applications this is not a car.
