    Default Re: kill wire

    The white wire is the kill wire.

    No spark?
    Low battery, bad stator, flywheel key sheared, bad regulator, bad connections?

    outboardignition.com has test procedures for this motor.

    On the buss bar unhook the white wire and see if the motor starts??
    Unhook the regulator and see if it fires??
    Unhook the tach and see if it fires??

    You sure the kill switch is working?
    Possible?? there is a fuse under the dash that can go bad.
    The contacts get corroded and it can cause a no spark condition.
