[Please see link at bottom of discussion for accurate information on ignition switch wiring--jimh]
I'm converting my controls from a side mount(mounted on the side of the center console and gets in the way) to a top mount OMC control for my 1999 Johnson 40 VRO motor. Going off the side mount control ignition switch wiring, this is how I have the top mount ignition switch wiring hooked up:
Do these connections look right? I pretty much followed the wiring on the old controller to the old switch since it's still hooked up. This is a 6 wire harness. The power trim is another harness and the System Check alarm is a different harness as well.

I copied this out of a thread some months back on this same topic. I am no tthe author, but I have used this info myself and it worked for me:
Black: Ground throughout.
Purple: Instrument lights throughout.
Alarm beeper ("horn"):
Ignition switch: 7 pin connector.
SystemCheck TachL 8 pin connector.
Looking at a manual I have for the 55 hp motor with electric start:

Here is a link to accurate information about wiring color codes used by OMC:

I looked at that link and the colors don't quite correspond to the newer ignition switch. They're close, but not quite the same. My new OMC binnacle control is a Bombardier control so maybe they changed things around slightly or they're using a new supplier for the ignition switch and wire harness. I've got everything bolted in so I can test it pretty soon.

Please let me know what information is at variance with your engine harness.

You might want to add some info to the following wire codes on your http://continuouswave.com/whaler/reference/wireColorCode.html#OMC page.
should say that it goes to one of the yellow or yellow banded wires on the control mounted neutral safety switch and then the other switch wire goes to the starter solenoid small terminal.
