Usually means a broken ground wire

Start tracing the black wire from the CDI box that is the wire that grounds out the ignition system to turn it off. I agree with Blueline(anything he says take it to the bank and cash it in. LOL)

2008 Dodge Caliper
2010 Chevrolet Equinox
2004 Honda ForemanES 400 4x4
(Currently I don't own a Polaris but I work on them all the time and get to ride cutomers for test rides. Maybe soon I will be a Polaris owner.)

I know this is an old thread, but it says what I need. Replaced key switch, and changed the kill switch (needed that anyway) and still it runs. Purchased an aftermarket CDI box and it won't even fire (probably bad one and will replace). Any other ideas? Starts and runs good, just doesn't want to stop running! I need help as I get tired of turning off the gas to stop it. Thanks in advance!

Grounded the CDI box and still will not shut off. Aside from getting a new CDI box, does anyone have another suggestion? This is driving me crazy!! Thanks for any input.

Got a different CDI box with the same results, no fire. Put the old one back on and it starts and runs. HELP i am out of ideas. I have replaced the CDI, kill switch and key switch. What else is involved here?
