Replacement Ignition Switch

Looking for the correct ignition switch for a 2011 E250HSLIIR; I have read conflicting things on which part is correct. Thanks for any help.

Re: Replacement Ignition Switch

Need more information, number of pins and type on back of plug and mounting positon, if you google engine hp., year and manufacturer, a display will show several ignition switchs. When in doubt call Evinrude. Hope it helps.

If your ignition switch is mounted on the manual shift control box it is part #5005801.  It is possible you have a dash mounted switch that requires a long neck for a thick dashboard or you may have an electonic shift system.

Sometimes an off-brand ignition switch is installed by the boat builder or the rigger.

If in doubt, post a picture of the front, side, and back of the switch.

It is an accessory item not shipped with the motor and can be a number of different styles or brands depending on the installer.

Re: Replacement Ignition Switch

Thanks Bill - yes have standard side shift box -however switch with part # 5005801 states this ignition switch is only up to 200HP. I am thinking I can use this on my 250? Can’t find any others. Again thanks for y’all time.

Re: Replacement Ignition Switch

It's the same switch for the whole engine series. Where did you find it saying only up to 200 HP? Can you post  a picture of that? It may not be an original OEM switch or instruction sheet.
