The Kill switch only kills the ignition feed. Normally to the coil.
You will find that the starter circuit still gets power. But the engine will not fire if the kill switch is on.

Testimonial: "The thing is though is, even if kill switch already on off position and keys off, still cranking up won't stop till it drained my battery."

99 Regal GS 3800 supercharged wont crank key in ignition all lights go off and car does nothing help!!!


Sounds like you may have possibly TWO problems here. The ignition key not turning past the run position or even to the run position is most likely a lock cylinder issue and may be fixed by replacing the ignition lock cylinder, As for the power being killed when turning the ignition to the start position, that sounds like a defective ignition switch. these items are two seperate parts. The reason for the turn signal issue may be related to the ignition switch fault.
Hope this helps.

V star 950 won't start


Hi, Joe you may have fried the ECM while trying to jump it from the Jeep otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.

2002 vstar 650 cleaned carbs cranks wont take gas


If you had cleaned the carb, it can be tested for the gas flow , now if this is good and you have a good igntion spark on the plug , the engine must start without any issue. So if there is no intensity on the spark, check the ignition coil, check the HT wires and the plug and most important the Ignition switching.

No power when you turn the key on there is nothing . The Battery is new and a new starter relay switch. Replaced old gas and new spark plug. Its been on the charger for most of last night. Still nothing...


you need to check and replace any bad fuses, main or ignition fuse, make sure kill switch is in run. just charging battery doesnt mean that it is goog,check voltage.

Need to remove key cylinder for vstar 650


They are tamper resistant screws which take a special tool to remove. (keeps the average theif from unbolting your ignition switch and easily hot wiring the bike) however the bolts can be drilled out to gain access to the switch and then replaced with a standard type screw upon reinstallation, the choice is yours.

Key will not turn in ignition in Vstar 650. Is


sounds like the tumblers in the ignition have broke or come apart. the easiest way of fixing this would be to replace it or take the barrel to a good locksmith and have them rebuild it.

I have lost my key to my yamaha 1100 vstar classic i have a key code but i cant find anyone in the area that can cut one by that, that works i have even taken the igination off and noone seems to know how...


Assuming your dealer can't do it, just as a matter of customer relations he should find someone who can.Find and contact the regional manager for Yamaha and ask for his assistance.
Worst case is you go to a locksmith and have him make a key from impressions on a blank key. Call a few locksmiths to see who has some key blanks and is able to do the magic.

Alternate to all the above is to Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha " and get a good used switch for cheap.
