    Thanks if you can help. I bought a used gheenoe with a 15 hp johnson 2001. The previous owner had a tie wrap around the kill switch. I purchased a new lanyard, but it does not kill the engine. How should I trouble shoot this. Thanks if you can help!

    If you press on the kill switch does it stop the engine?
    If not you may have a bad connection or need a new switch.

    Check that the back side of the switch is still properly wired. It could be possible it was bypassed. Worse case a new generic switch is around $11.99 and up.
