Ignition switch on 41', FL 120's

My port ignition switch has failed ( I think, lol), anybody know of a source for these ?
I am not sure American Diesel has them.
Mine is a keyed turn to the right (alarms and lights go on) and then push the buttons to start and stop.

almost any marine store carries them and probably 1/3 what it would cost at Am Diesel....maybe even a Walmart if near a boating area.

Sounds like something Brian would suggest you dource locally.

Greetings,
Mr. TJM. Yup, what Mr. ps said. Heck, even a simple toggle switch would do the job. After all, who's going to steal a trawler and make a get away at 8 knots?

For the system described, you just need a key switch with one set of contacts, two terminals.

Double check that issue is not elsewhere. Get to back of switch and check with a meter.

Maybe OJ

Take a phone picture of the keyswitch behind the dash.

Problem solved. It was a disconnected (broken) safety neutral wire on the transmission !!
