Question about Honda Electrical Supplies
I could shut my old Honda recoil start generator off from inside my cabin...we cut a wire on the old generator and were able to run wire to a switch inside the house...so when you went to bed you didn't have to go outside to shut if off, you could just flick the switch. I want to do the same to my Honda eu1000i - how? This is a pretty hi-tech generator...probably has a computer type of inside...I don't want to cut the wrong wire or something.
You should not have to cut any wires to install a remote kill switch. Most honda engines have an oil alert what will cut ignition if oil level is low. The switch actually shorts the itnition to ground just like the on / kill switch. Just unplug oil alert wire from harness and add a homemade connector with second lead and connect another wire to ground/frame of generator engine. When you short these two wires together it should kill engine. Solder these two wires to a female connector (Radio Shack) and just leave inside generator when you want remote switch. Attach switch to leads of desired length of male connector to mate with female connector at generator. Good Luck.
