Spit Mk3 ignition light stays on.


Recommended Posts

All I can think is that the ignition light wire is connected to a permanent live instead of the ignition switch so it would go out on starting as the dynamo/alternator generates but otherwise be lit all the time. The error could even be on the back of the ignition switch where the ignition light wire has been pushed onto a terminal 1 spare spade instead of the one for terminal 2...

Hi Guys, 

Checked the ignition switch and I have 4 white wires, 5 with the OD one, not 3 as per the mk3 wiring diagram.

Ran engine and when I turned it off at the switch the engine would not stop! Had to disconnect the earth at the battery.

Further investigation required I think!
