View Full Version : 2000 205V Ignition Switch Issue

Pulled up to the fuel dock today, cut engine and filled up the boat. Got back in, cut on the blower and then attempted to start boat a minute later. Instead of the key advancing to 'Start' position, it spins freely (360 degrees). I can't pull the key out this whole time. I ended up playing with it and just as I am about to look at tearing down dash panel on the spot, I jiggle it and it locks back in place. I wanted to get a few more runs in so I babied the switch the rest of the day and had no issues.

1) Anyone experience this or something like this in this model year or similar year?

2) I assume the switch is bad and I need to replace. Is that a fairly straight forward exercise?
