ignition problem - '04 VLX,

Recommended Posts

I'm having a problem with my VLX. The engine will not turn off , when the ignition switch is turned off. I have replaced the ignition switch, no difference. The gauges and stereo will shut off , but not the engine. The deadman switch will not turn off the engine.

Have you made any electrical changes, such as a new alternator, or did this just start happening?

no changes to the electrical system or alternator in the boat

The keyswitch turns on the EFI relay, which powers up the fuel injectors, sends power to the fuel pump relay (which is powered up by the ECM), sends a run signal (input) to the ECM, and powers up the ignition system. I think your EFI relay may be sticking. Pulling it out (unplugging it) would be the same as turning off the key. That's were I would start.
