Hi all,

The Stop button (red button) on my sons Mini Rok started to malfunction. It wouldn't stop the engine. Thinking that the button was faulty, I cut it off, and replaced it with a Start / Stop switch from Jaycar.

A new switch didn't fix the problem.

The green button still starts the motor OK. The only way I can get the motor to stop is to cover the airbox (cut off the air supply).

Has anybody else experienced this problem? If so can you please explain how you resolved the issue.

Thanks

David

The red button earths out the ignition so if it is not working make sure the pink wire is connected at the bullet terminal closer to the engine near the large red anderson type plug. If it is connected there then you most likely have a break in the wire. Check continuity of the wire with a multimeter or a test light to locate the open circuit.

You can't modify the wiring loom, I think you will find scrutineers picking on you.

The buttons are over priced, you can buy them from RS online and solder them on yourself.

I did hear of someone replacing the heat shrink on the button once and KA pinged him.

Otherwise jump onto mondokart.com and buy some more

Thank Brendon.I'll check that wire.

PS: the large red Anderson plugs become brittle very quickly. I've replaced mine with grey plugs

Wow - that's harsh.
