Turn the switch off motor keeps running

I have a 1995 40 hp force outboard motor.It will crank fine but when you turn the key off the motor keeps running.I replaced the ignition switch and verified the wiring diagram of the switch paying close attention to the ground wire and the kill wire.Everything seems to be good.I also took the kill wire that comes from the outboard and shorted it straight to ground,it chokes the motor out,but does not quickly turn it off like it should.Can some one please give advice.

It sounds like there is a short in the alternator or wiring for alternator. You are continuing running with the battery cut off. But the outboard generates its own power and its finding the way to the ignition. As for grounding, you may be idling too high for a quick shut off.

Outboard motors


Keep the gas in your outboard new/clean with new oil every 6 months..Keep your motor covered when not in use, Dirt dabbers (dobbers) will build nest under the hood and break loose and ruin your motor, ,,Change your water pump and thermostate every year when motor is used a lot.....Dont run stainless steel props on small hp motors ,when you hit a log it will bend your prop shaft costing big $$$ to replace..Ck your lower gear oil if water is noted ,replace lower seals...Dont buy used motors unless you run a compression ck....ck for water in gear case , Dont buy 4 strokes to heavy to slow to many parts AND are being replaced by fuel injection 2 strokes .... Dont buy FORCE motors not made by mercury no parts being made and or extink and pure junk . Etex best motors , .

Hello vcd9,
When You Turn The Key On ,Press It In To Activate The Choke Solenoid And Then Crank At The Same Time,This Should Solve Your Problem, If All Is Fine With The Engine.

I have a 50 hp 1975 Johnson outboard. When I turn


There is a switch in the control box that locks out the start unless you are in neutral. Open the box and put in a new switch,this is a safty device to keep it from starting in forward and throwing you out of the boat. Jim OMC retired Mech
