Better than advertised!

This switch is of much better quality than anything I could have purchased locally (except from the Painless rep). I really like the sealed connections. The quality of the stranded wire that Painless uses in all their wiring products is unaparalled! Really good stuff!

Are replacement keys available and if so where?


December 28, 2012
Sorry, we do not offer replacement keys. You will need to source from your local locksmith

Does this switch have accessory power in the start position? I have fuel injection, and the injectors and ecm need power in both the start and on positions.

Does this switch have accessory power in the start position? I have fuel injection, and the injectors and ecm need power in both the start and on positions.

You inquired about our switch number 91012209 and power to the accessory side during the start position and I do understand your application and can only assume that it maintains power to run the fuel pump and supply power to ecm controlled vehicles. For verification I may suggest contacting Painless direct at 800-423-9696 and their part number is 80529. They would be able to tell you the available current in the start position. These have been used on vehicles with a computer controlled injection system and also in the Powerjection EFI series with satisfactory results. Below is the wiring specs as available for hookup: Needs at least 2-5/8" space behind switch Switch is threaded for a 3/4" I.D mount hole Switch has: accessory - left lock/off - center on - right, start - far right red lead = power-in pink lead = power to coil/ignition purple lead = power to starter soleniod brown lead = power to accessories/circuits
