Keyless Ignition Upgrade?

Hey hey was thinking about wiring up a push-button keyless ignition.

Searched threads- all intel is very dated.

Any recs for an illuminated round switch and landmine avoidance with install? Also curious how accessories work in acc mode with motor off.

Many thanks in advance for any wisdom.

B.

I can't help you, but maybe you can help me. Could you post a picture of the wires going to your ignition switch? I had to hotwire mine over the weekend, and I forgot to take a picture of mine before bundling them together.

Cole Hersee makes a 4 position switch suitable for marine environments. Part # M-712.

Here is another source for a new ignition switch.

Orange - BAT
Purple - IGN
Yellow/Red - ST
Accessories - ACC

I cannot find a schematic diagram. Still looking...

Anyone?

I installed this push button switch from this thread.

https://teamtalk.mastercraft.com/sho...r6coug&page=23

It worked great, I removed the wires off the ignition switch, wired them into the control box and it all worked fine. Photo of the box and push button attached. It was honestly one of the best upgrades I did to my boat. Made it so much smoother to use

As far as functionality, you flip the kill switch and the you use the button. If you just hold the push button down, it'll start the engine. One short press, it will go into accessory. Second short press will go into Ignition. When it's already running, if you press the button once, it will shut the engine down but keep the accessory on. That way you don't lose music after shutting the engine down.
I think I took a photo of the wires going into my ignition switch before I removed it, I'll take a look

You, sir, deserve great kudos for this. I agree with the sentiments earlier in the thread. From a usability perspective, this was by far one of the best upgrades I made on my X1.
