Dont do it! There are too many things going on in your switch to change to a toggle switch ... I am presuming you are on a road bike.

If you are on a kick start dirt bike - no battery, no lights, no brake lights even, and you have a magneto system, all you have to do is break the circuit between the mag and the coil - that is where you put the toggle.

If you have a battery/alternator/rectifier, you are asking for pain.

Have a 97 honda. Just purchased. It has a toggle switch installed that works with original key ignition. That said... toggle controls whole electrical..everything works..except tail lights,and the dash...

So If I understand, you turn on toggle and then use key to engage starter? Do brake lights and turn lights work, just not the running lights? Or are all tail lights dead. If none work, juice is not getting to the headlamp switch. Best fix would be to replace the probably bad ignition switch and repair wiring back to original, but quick fix would be to run a second wire from toggle switched side to the headlamp switch +

Lost my keys,then I broke my ignition please help I need to hot wire there are 6 wires which

I hope you are only doing this temporarily. Generally speaking, ignition 1&2 would become powered when key is turned to on position. These could be wired to toggle switches. Highly recommend a high amperage momentary contact switch only for the starter lead. Best advice is the get a new ignition switch rather than mess with wiring. Doing so could do un repairable damage to your ignition system, wiring harness, and computer

1990 f150 ignition

he probably hooked up the toggle because the ign. swith was bad .the key turns the acuator which turns the switch . it sounds like you replaced the wrong piece . when you unhook the connector on the switch follow the wires to make sure he didn't cut the wire . hopefully he just added a wire to activate the solenoid . Good Luck

Can I replace my key ignition switch with a simple toggle switch

If there are only 2 wires going to the key switch (and I can't see why there would be more than 2 wires) then you absolutely could use a toggle switch in place of the key switch.

HONDA CBR 125RW (2007) I have lost ignition key. I have a basic copy which unlocks seat and petrol but will not turn in ignition lock or start the bike. I think I needed it coded or chipped? Rang 2 Honda...

Keys here in the USA most likely come from Honda ... because most places (hardware store, discount store, locksmith) will not stock them ... Keys I am familiar with here don't have a electronic chip in them.

Easiest solution is replace the ignition switch, though most dealers should be able to cut you a key based on the VIN. If you replace the lock, make sure you get a couple spare keys made.

If you are really despirate ... the ignition switch is after all only a two position switch ... Off/on. Get a toggle switch and make it work (this is for people with advanced skills)

Disable viper alarm

Yes the best way is disarm the alarm and put in a Valet Mode
To activate the Valet Mode do the following:

There is a push button or toggle switch to disable the alarm (to engage the valet mode). Without knowing where this
switch is you won't be able to disconnect the alarm.

1. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the "on" position.
2. Flip the toggle or hold the push button for at least 5 seconds.
3. The LED. light will stay solid on.
4. Turn the ignition off
5. Release the push button. If you have a toggle leave it alone in step 2
