    All CD ignitions have a black w/yellow stripe wire that is used to kill the ignition. It comes off the powerpack. Tillers run that wire to a button on the front panel, then to a ground. Remotes run it through the wiring harness to the control box, then to ground. Find that wire and tap into it, don't forget the ground.
