If you want to keep it you will have to get a higher amperige switch to cary the amperige. If you dont need it do away with it just wire it straight thru.

I have a 2005 ford escape I put a kill switch to turn off my amp and my radio but now that I want to take it off the radio wont come one unless I have the kill switch wires connected any suggestions

Look this is a very very simple fix. You have what is called a remote wire coming from the radio is usually the red and or the yellow wire what's happened is your remote wire which allows memory to stay on the radio is ran to your switch. You must eliminate your hot wire to your switch and run a hot wire off of your factory plug in to the remote wire on your radio. This will fix this issue.

I wrecked my 2010 chevy cobalt an busted the radiator an the car began overheating on the way home an losing power then it just died an will not start back but it Is cranking over an the serpintene belt is...

There is no "kill" switch or anything that shuts down the fuel or ignition if it gets too hot...maybe there should be. It's hard to say if you fried it or not, not knowing how hot it got or how far you drove it. Based on the "it lost power and then died" I think you killed it.

2000 chevy 4wd silverado no brake lights no power going to the orange wire on the brake light switch any suggestions?

I don't know the color codes for this but you should have one hot all the time and both hot when pedal depressed. No hot, check fuses, one hot with pedal depressed, switch.

83 chevy pickup with 350 motor when accelaterating spark knocking real bad

Is the engine running hot or overheating? This could cause that to happen. If it's not running hot check your timing. If the timing is on time try advancing it 1 or 2 degrees. Somwtimes slack in the chain from wear will put it off time. Hope this helps.
