1987 Merc 165, (470), Alpha 1 Gen 1
Good morning all,
I'm checking the continuity between the switch terminals on the back of my ignition switch according to my manual (No. 8).
The back of my switch is configured differently and my wire colors are different than how the manual shows, so I wanted to see if anyone could tell me what correlates to what.
Reading from 12 o'clock and going clockwise the manual has:
I, A, B, and C terminals
Reading from 12 o'clock CW my switch has:
IGN, BAT, SOL, and ACC terminals
I assume that I=IGN, BAT=B, ACC=A, and SOL=C
Is this correct?
With my ignition switch at the "start" position I'm getting continuity from B to all terminals except C. The test was made with the switch removed.
My reason for checking the switch is that my engine will run while the starter is engaged; however, when I let off the key (when the ignition switch is in the "RUN" position), the engines dies.
Thank you for your help.
