Red positive wire, goes from battery to switch (right side) then goes to solenoid. Black negative wire goes from battery to ground. Than goes to solenoid ground.

Rv gen starts running when being towed


You may have a bad starting switch or button that is able to make contact while the RV is in motion. Maybe when you hit a bump it makes contact. It could also be the wiring that connects the starting switch to the generator or even the wiring or switch on the generator if it has switches or buttons located on the generator.

What all safety switches are on a 1996 ford thunderbird


I think the only safety switch in the starting circuit (which just engages the starter motor to crank the engine over) would be the neutral safety switch. But if you have the anti-theft system, that will inhibit starting while honking the horn and flashing the headlights, too.
There is an inertia switch in the wiring to the fuel pump which could trip with a large bump, but it would only shut off the fuel pump, and not affect the starting circuit.

The neutral safety switch wiring would be found in the wiring to the Transmission Range sensor, which also needs checking.

We need the schematics, to also put toggle switch for starting


Fitting a toggle switch for starting used to be a budget method of overcoming starter switch and other problems on older cars but will not work where the standard ignition key contains a transponder.

You haven't provided enough detail for a good answer but wiring a (spring return type) toggle switch to operate the starter motor is relatively easy and requires only a battery live and a wire to the starter solenoid or to the coil of the starter relay if you wish to use a relay.
Mostly these wires can be extended from the existing harness to the new switch.

On off switch on generator not working


If the unit is starting with no wires to/from the switch, then likely the switch is just supposed to ground the spark in order to stop the engine.

I do not know about the wires for your switch, but you have a big problem with overcurrent in your switch if the output of your ignition switch goes straight to the starter. This is a fire hazard if you have done this. The ignition switch should send power to the starting solinoid. The starting solinoid is an electrically operated switch that is designed to handle the current loads with heavier duty electrical components. Be safe.

Have a A200 Mixer, when turned on, you have to spin it by hand then it runs fine. Whats wrong


The answer is clearly in the starting circuit which doesn't have too many parts, but depends on the type of starting circuit your mixer uses (electronic or mechanical start switch). I'm assuming your mixer isn't very old, as the old units used brushed motors which did not have starting circuits.

The parts of the starting circuit are the motor start winding, the start capacitor and the start switch (probably electronic in your case which is a small silver box with four wire terminals on it). The capacitor should be tested with a multimeter after verifying it's not holding a charge (check with multimeter set to DC Volts, mixer unplugged, should read zero volts).
Start winding should be tested with the meter to measure ohms. Locate the wires leading to the motor (hopefully only three wires) and you should get a reading for all three combinations of measurements (wire 1-to-wire 2, 2-to-3, 1-to-3) if meter indicates open on any of these, motor stator is bad(this is pretty rare and quite expensive).
Electronic start switches are not very simple to test, but if the capacitor and motor test out OK with the meter, and all the wiring is intact (look closely for loose wires, burned wires, poorly crimped terminals, etc.) then it must be the start switch.

Cant get spark from a TTR600 Yamaha bike.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the indulgence of roudrunning1, a couple of initial checks when starting:
  • verify that the black wire of the ignition coil is grounded;
  • check for a high pulsating voltage on the orange wire;
  • check for the presence/absence of voltage on the red/white wire;
  • if none, check for the presence/absence of voltage on the brown wire before the kill switch;
  • if none, check for the presence/absence of voltage on the red wire before the ignition switch;
  • verify that there is no voltage read on the blue/white wire to the CDI;
  • verify that there is very low 0.5VAC on the green/white wire to the CDI;
  • ensure that it is in neutral when starting;
  • try starting with the clutch lever pulled.

Postback results of above tests.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Can't get spark


Kill switch works one of two ways. Either it grounds you out, killing the spark or it disconnects a circuit shuttig ignition off. So...forget the switch for a moment and wrap the two wires together, try starting, nothing ? then separate the two wires and make sure they are not touching any metal parts, try starting again.....now you have eliminated the switch as your problem.....cap off the wires and don't hook them to the switch if your bike is now running....Good luck to you friend....tim
