      Comments about Sierra Mercury Ignition Switch (control box):

      Works good, a lot better than my original wore out one from 87'. My old one I could get to turn the ignition to a middle setting that would run the boat but keep the warning alarm from turning on. Not a good thing. my new one keeps me from doing that so that I don't over heat the motor.

            The wires in my boat wire harness matched the colors it was easy to wire up using but connectors
            another thing I really like is the back of new switch is sealed .

                    I have a 1989 Quicksilver box and the ignition bolts in from the rear of the box. It has old school 6 pin with soldered wires to the back of ignition. There is more wires then 6 wires attached to the back of the ignition. It has a on/off and push for choke. Will this unit work for my application? Thanks

                      Hello James,

                      Yes. This is the correct ignition switch but I do not understand why you have so many additional wires.

                      Thank you,

                      This is a replacement for Mercury control box switches. This should work for you if your switch is mounted in the control (throttle) box.
