Killswitch trouble

Discussion in 'Outboard Maintenance' started by cpauly33, May 3, 2011.

  1. I started the motor in the morning and the tiller killswitch worked fine. Then once I got out on the the water the tiller button wasn't working. The killswitch on the motor still works fine. Don't know too much about this type of thing and I wanted to get some input before I tried to screw anything up. Any idea? 2005 Mercury 15 hp, 4 stroke

    Same circuit, just another wire and switch tied into it.
    Something is loose or corroded so that the tiller button
    is no longer part of the circuit.
