I replaced my ignition switch today and I had two extra wires that were not included in the switch's instructions. One is solid black that runs to the hour meter. The other is solid black and runs to my kill switch. The red w/ purple battery wire is not hot, thus my boat won't crank and my guages are all dead. The kill switch has three wires coming [from] it. The solid black wire goes into a wire conduit, another black w/ yellow goes into the ignition switch. I know the black w/ yellow is hooked up correctly because it had a little rubber boot on it to prevent it from touching the other wires. Where does the third black wire go? I have six posts on my ignition switch. A, B, C, S, M, M.
