    Perhaps the emergency ignition switch was mounted upside-down. I don't know if that switch is indexed to the panel but the circuit breakers are not.

    What was the problem and how did you fix it? There MUST be power to right side ignition with emergency ignition Normal/Off for the ignition system to function correctly. Only a dead main battery, open IGN R breaker, or a wiring error would prevent IGN R being powered with emergency switch in the NORMAL/OFF position.

    My RT IGN EMERGENCY switch LED is broken and I am trying to get it fixed to verify everything is working. It looks like the switch was backward (upsidedown) but won't know until I get the LED fixed.

    I don't know if wire color codes are the same for the kits as for the FX-3 but this picture shows my emergency ignition switch which is the right way up and works as expected. This is a modular panel so switch position may not be the same as your. My switch group is emergency ignition and fuel pump, with provisions for pitot heat (not yet wired).

    If the photo doesn't help it shouldn't be too hard to check for continuity between center pole contacts and upper and lower ""way" contacts to see which way should be up. The switch is 2 pole 2 way.

    Just went through the long ignition test from the dropbox and everything works as expected. Thanks for all the help.
