I thought my ignition switch was stuffed...

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when I turned the key it would work and sometimes nothing at all happened. To confirm that the switch was the problem I traced the wires down to the connector (the green one), pulled it apart and jumped the connector using a short piece of wire. Ignition came on as expected. "Definitely the switch," I thought and put the whole thing back together. I tried it one more time with the key and this time nothing. Usually I could turn the key a few times and eventually it would come on. I gave the green connector a wiggle - bingo! Somehow the contacts in the connector had become loose. I got in there with the point of a scriber and bent the connectors a bit tighter and problem solved. I'm glad I hadn't ordered the new switch already.
