I had something odd happening yesterday. When I turned the battery switch key off , the switch stayed connected. Did anyone have this happen to them? And how did you fix it?

Wish I had that problem, instead of the opposite. One of mine doesn't want to complete the circuit like it should.

Anyway, spray a penetrant of your choice (as long as it isn't WD-40) down the hole and see if it frees things up.

Im going to try to spray some de-oxit in there.
I guess it not turning off , is the better of the two possibilities.
I sprayed De-oxit in the switch with the key inside . Turned it a few times and it works again, by turning power off.
Thank you for the suggestion

That's because you didn't turn the ignition off first, like you're supposed to. After shutting the engine off, obviously.

By any chance, did you turn the master switch off with the engine running?
Turn the ignition off first???
I always had some issues with that switch. So I turned the engine off . And then the battery switch.
Maybe I should stay de-oxit in that switch too and start using the ignition switch.
