APC Mini Chopper Key Switch
I have an APC Mini Chopper with a broken key switch. The key switch vibrated out of the tank and cracked near the bottom where the wires attach. The key is a simple on/off switch.
Since it belongs to my 7 year old, I am not necessarily sold on having a key for it anyway. I attempted to put a simple on/off switch in place of the key, but apparently I have something wired wrong.
The wires on this bike look to be all over the map when it comes to color codes, but then maybe it is just me.
Anyway, there are 4 wires total on the bottom of the switch (2 orange, 1 black and white, 1 green). The two orange wires are at the 1 and 2 position on the bottom of the switch, whereas the black/white and the green wires are at the 4 and 5 position. They all go to a plastic connector in the harness. The corresponding connections on the other side of the harness are not the same color (orange connects to red, orange to black, etc)
I simply tied the oranges together and the other wires together and installed a 2 post on/off switch, but the bike will not start now. Have I tied the wires together incorrectly? Do I need to simply buy another factory replacement for the key? I have had no luck in finding a schematic on the wiring, so I was hoping that someone had replaced the key and could give me some pointers.
Any advice is welcome,
