I originally posted help with motor but turns out it is the kill switch. Mine is a 3 wire toggle switch on the console (two yellow/brown, one black). This is for a 1999 Mercury Force 90 hp.

I cannot find a three wire switch anywhere. Everything is 2 or 4 wire. No place I have contacted knows a part number or can help me.

Can anyone tell me where to find a three wire switch or tell me if I can use a 4 wire switch and leave out one of the wires. I don't know what the wires actually control.

I have burned 3 fishing trips to the coast now trying to get this thing working so any help is appreciated to salvage my fall fishing before the end of the year.

You just need a simple on/off toggle switch. it will make or break the connection between the black ground wire and the black/yellow magneto wires. make to kill or break the connection for running
