Okay, I went out to the boat and took my ('96) dash apart to see if I could find some answers for you.
On the back of the lanyard switch two purple wires come out and go into a small (pencil sized) loom. This loom goes up to the dash behind the speedometers. One of the purple wires goes down to the ignition switch and the other purple wire takes a 180 degree turn and goes into the large loom that heads for the engine. I looked at the ecm and found a purple wire there. No relays are behind my ignition switch.
It looks like the best way to bypass the lanyard switch would be to take the wire going into the bigger loom and connect it to the ignition switch.
If you have any questions, let me know soon while I still have it apart.
