I have a gk250 go kart have a problem somewhere with the wiring it will not start on the ignition, I have to start it by crossing out the top bolts on the relay. But when it is running I can shut it off using the key.thought it was the ignition and replaced it but still same problem, but not sure if it is hooked up right. Can someone please help me

The ignition switch is bad or a wire has been scraped and is shorting out somewhere. Double check your light panel chassis and other positive-connecting wires to make sure one hasn't crossed over during battery replacement or other maintenance. A loose or partially exposed wire will cause this. If you've owned it for a while or bought it used, look for wear around the key hole or rust on the back of the ignition switch. Hope this helps.
Check the wiring to the ignition and radio to make sure none of it crosses the ignition or radio some models require the positive to connect to the ignition but only in the on or run position but it could be a simple wire ground out someplace
Because the ignition switch wire (small purple wire) or connector is touching the hot post on the starter.So when you connect the battery it just like turning the ignition key to start the engine. Make sure all the wires on the starter are not touching each other.
Four cylinder: Remove spark plug wire boots (four in a row on top of
the engine). DO NOT PULL ON THE WIRE only the rubber top. Make sure the
wires are numbered, if not, number them. They MUST go back to the same
hole they came out of after the new plugs are installed. Remove
with a 16mm spark plug wrench. Install new plugs (any auto parts store
can tell you what your options are here): Start threading the new plugs by
hand so you don't cross thread the engine head by accident. Then
complete tightening them gently. Spark plugs are supposed to be
tightened to a specific torque: 13ftlbs in this case. If you choose to
not use a torque wrench do not overtighten the plugs. Reinstall boots
6-Cylinder: Remove engine cover, if present. Disconnect the six
connectors on each of the ignition coils. Remove each of the six
ignition coil bolts and then remove the coils by pulling straight up --
arrange them so that you know which goes back where. Remove and install
the six plugs
as described above. Reinstall the ignition coils with their bolts
(torque: 69 in-lbs), then wires. Replace the cover.
if it turns over from below,then its in the ignition switch and this also feeds power to the e.c.m. to make the engine fire so you either have a bad switch contact or the hot 12 volt wire to the ignition switch
has the dash been pulled apart? any reason why there would be wires crossed? i have heard of someone having their trunk pop when starting their car, but they put the dash from an mk4 in their mk3, and crossed a couple wires. as far as the stalling, it is most likely because your alarm is going off. your best bet, is to take it to a mechanic, unless you are good with wiring, and either have them rewire the alarm, because somewhere there is a loose connection, and it's tripping itself, or have them snip the alarm all together.
