Hello,

 

I'm in the process of replacing my re-upholstered dash and i took photos of the ignition switch connects, 3 in fact.  unfortunately all 3 are blurry.....  if anyone could help me out on the correct wiring connection i would greatly appreciate it!

 

Thanks,

Ken

Black/Yellow to Start terminal

Black/White to Ignition terminal

White to Battery terminal

 

The terminals are marked with little raised letters on the black plastic backing.

Mild inconvenience, but not a big deal. The following assumes you have only three tabs at the back of the switch:

 

1. Get a device that measures continuity.

2. Turn the key to the first position. Test which two tabs have continuity. One is B+ and one is IGN.

3. Turn and hold the key in the second position. Test which two tabs have continuity. The one you also touched in (2) is B+ the other is ST.

 

Done.

 

Jesse.

Are the wires not in a plastic plug? No way to mix them up.
