  • Wiring problem on my Bayliner Capri 1700

    Hi guys!

    I bought an Bayliner Capri and Im following some guides in the forum to put the boat ready to go in the water.

    Last night I decided to remove the ignition because there were rust problems and sometimes it gets stuck.
    What did I do? Marked all the color wires in the ignition with a permanent marker; Red/White R/W and so on, but when I clean and oil it, the marks went off ;(!!! :face palm:

    Does any one Help me please?

    Many thanks!

    Welcome to iboats!

    A 1700 is an outboard boat. My 1988 wiring diagram doesn't list any R/W wire to the ignition switch. It shows the following 5 terminals on the switch, which are labelled with letters:

    M: white from motor (magneto) + white from lanyard kill switch
    B: red (12 gauge)
    C: green (choke)
    S: yellow (starter solenoid)
    M: blue (magneto ground) + other white from lanyard kill switch

      R/W was an example, but all most wires have stripes, excluding de Black

      I will check "NYBo", many many thanks!!

        What year is your boat? If it has a Force outboard, I may have other diagrams that better match what you have.

          Mine is a 93 Bayliner Capri 1700 with a Force 70Hp Engine.

          I think it as 7 pins, I remember 2 in the center (choke I think) 3+2 in the side.

            Checked the wiring and your scheme helped a lot! Ive got 6 wires a I followed the wires in order to put it in correct order.
            Now I have another problem, boat wont shut down when I turn key off (???)

            The only way is remove the power cut!

              The motor is shut down by the switch connecting the two magneto wires, so those are the ones you need to check.
