  • Ignition issue

    Any idea why my ignition would suddenly stop working? I have a 2008 Indmar 6.0. It worked fine yesterday, this morning nothing when you turn the key.

    Kill switch fine, in neutral, batteries charged, I can hear the fuel pump kick on each time I turn the key to On.

    Could the throttle be out of alignment? Not going into neutral all the way?

    Thank you.

    could be the key switch... or the neutral safety switch - alignment of throttle or starter.. no clicks or anything?

      Nothing, no clicks. Could the starter go out like that with no warning?

          Volt meter tells all...short out the kill switch then you know for sure!

            Yeah that kill switch can cause a lot of problems. I wasted a lot of time looking at other parts only to find my kill switch was bad.

              I hear the fuel pump kick on when I put the kill switch in with key in On position. Doesn't that mean the kill switch is engaging?

                      Kill switch

                      On my 91 Prostar 190 there are two wires coming out of the back of the kill switch. You use a wire to touch where the connections of these two wires terminate. This bypasses the kill switch. Then try to start the engine. You have to take the dash out to get to the wires or crawl under the steering might do it. The best thing to do is cut the two wires coming out of the kill switch and twist them together with a wiring connector and eliminate the kill switch for good. It is really not needed unless you think you will fall out of your Mastercraft. You have to make sure your State does not require a kill switch first.

                        Damn! I should have done that to mine when I had the whole starboard side panel out last year!

                          i reached under and pulled it out there is a connector that goes to the switch I unplugged it and shorted that out.. then when i replaced the switch I just unplugged my handy work and plugged in the new switch...

                          I also had my ignition switch go kaplooee.. it just spun around.. I could make it work but it was a bit tricky... but got me home..
