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.

Good luck.


Many thanks for your help and the info ,
as I thought ,the relays are not a standard fitment ,
I think they were to do with boat previously being run on Gas (or LPG in the USA)
will remove them and re wire the kill switch circuit ..
