What is this switch for? Push pull switch on dash.
« on: August 01, 2019, 06:40:54 PM »
Need help.  This is a 1978 Hawaiian jet boat.  I do not know what the hanging push pull switch is?  There are 4 on the dash.  one is the lights, one is the bilge and one is the blower.  The one hanging has only 2 wires going to it.  One wire goes to ignition switch and the other wire runs to the back into the fuse panel and it is labeled alternator.  Which is has another wire connecting over to the next pin which is labeled battery.  Whether this switch is pushed in or pulled out seems to have no bearing on anything.    I am trying to find parts (the pull knob and hardware to secure it to dash) so I can actually have it in the dash instead of just hanging underneath.  Really just wanting to know what it is for?

What alternator is it?
Some alternator need a keyed hot to make it charge. Home brewed alternator switch? Likewise, and alternator can kill a battery over extended period of time, maybe a alternator kill/isolator switch?

Just wild ass guesses.

Good luck on that one.

It is definitely wired in to ignition key and alternator.  However, there are three pins on the switch but only 2 wires going to switch.  So maybe there was something else in there before that was an original setup.  After I had the boat rebuilt like 10 years ago now It has never interfered with anything.  Like I said more curious to figure out what it was for.   The alternator in there now is fairly new.  Have not had any problems with battery degradation or charging issues while having boat out.

Might be a fuel change switch
