  • 1995 maristar won't turn off?

    Hello everyone! I bought a maristar a few months ago since I've done a little work to it (repacked the shaft and rudder, new prop, bildge, and mufflers) after I did all the maintance I took it out on the water and the boat wouldn't shut off.... I had to pull the fuel Injector off to starve the engine of fuel. I replaced the ignition and I can turn the key "off" and the boat will still run? I have no clue what it could be? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Dual batteries? Did you leave the main ground wire off the battery that runs up to the buss bar?

      It only has a single battery.

        Well, you have an issue with the wiring on the ignition you replaced. I would bet it is a ground wire.

        I've only seen this happen one time. It was caused by the ground wire/cable on the second, house, battery being left off. It would start but would not turn off. I assume it has something to do with the ground at your helm or at the ignition itself.
