How to: Wiring up a 6 point FIA kill switch
 
Ignition wiring is incorrect, the saxmax was incorrectly wired. Am rectifying it now and will update accordingly

could a mod sticky this in the guides?

a quick question, not sure if I'm missing the point, but what's the difference between a simple 2 way kill switch to the above 6 way !?

adamskiTNR 5th May 2010 15:31

The 6 point has 2 more switches on the bottom of it. One is the ignition, the other is a positive feed back to a resistor. This prevents the run on, in the event of the switch being turned off on the move, from blowing the diode pack. It gives the alternator current somewhere to go when it is cut and it is still charging.

When the switch is on the ignition circuit is on and the resistor circuit is off. When the switch is off the ignition is cut and the resistor circuit is opened.

So the advantage of this is that if the engine is running, and the switch is pulled to off - then a 6 way switch has somewhere for the current to go in the time difference between the switch being pulled and the engine revs falling to 0 ?

that's right. But remember if your in gear then the alternator will be spinning till you stop, along with the engine

bumo. could a mod sticky this please?

adamskiTNR 5th May 2010 23:09

Any mods out there? c'mon it is a valid how to guide after all ;)

adamskiTNR 6th May 2010 19:18

I have pm'd mods and admin's? Is it not worthy?

adamskiTNR 6th May 2010 22:43

Another bump for the mods. It's the only guide on the net

Pieface 9th May 2010 10:56

Christ, wait a while. Mods aren't on here every minute so there's no need to bump 2 or 3 hours after another bump.

adamskiTNR 10th May 2010 17:42

I only bumped it when mods were on

This is about the only worthwhile "how to" thread on saxp.

adamskiTNR 11th May 2010 21:41
