Question about Boating
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.
