Key switch going bad??


Recommended Posts

On my 22 pathfinder the engine wouldn't start (or attempt to) until I turned the key switch a few times and when it did start it wouldn't turn off until multiple attempts or by pulling the kill switch. 

Is this a symptom of the key switch going bad? The engine is a 2006 Yamaha F150. 

If it is, is it a pretty easy replacement? Plug and play?

Yamaha key switches do go bad.  Yes it is plug and play butt connectors unless someone has been in there messing with factory wiring. 


I replaced mine on my 2005 after 6 years....it's plug and play...but, they are not cheap :(

regarding WD40...DON'T USE IT ON KEY SWITCHES ....according to my Yamaha dealer...it eats away the plastic covering.....
