    is this normal on a merc 25 4 strk or could it be kill switch wire issue? thanks

    Easy enough to check...disconnect the tiller kill switch wires from the circuit
    then see if it happens again. Use the cowl mounted kill switch to stop the engine.

    Shouldn't happen. It sounds like the wires are grounding out in the tiller arm. Go with Brett's test, I would bet the wires are pinching near the tiller pivot point.
