I have a 1986 suzuki d30.Is it possible to wire it up to a key ignition from a car or do you have to have the correct suzuki switch?The wire harness coming from the engine has 7 pins.Can i cut this off and just wire straight to an ignition?If so how do i do this?
Thanks

Welcome. . .

what type key switch do you have now ? Turn to start or push to choke & turn to start ?

Are the wires on your current swith attached to a harness, battery or wire nuts ?

Wouldn't use a car part ever on a boat...different type wire. Car parts don't weather well.

Hope that helps.

The harness carries the main power + and -, the buzzer warning signal, the ingnition on/off and the choke. Every thing is possible but what a messy job. Automotive components are not suitable for marine applications.
I know the Suzuki replacement is not cheap but that is the only way to go.

You would have to check the schematic diagram for your motor.

Some motors use power for the ignition and some ground a wire to kill the spark.

It's possible to do expensive damage if not dealt with correctly.
