    Measuring resistance on the switch.
    Lanyard attached, like 3.5 ohms
    Lanyard off, 0 ohms (full/closed connection).

    Is the "stop" switch an on/off connection?
    Ie. Should it be open or closed?

    The lanyard switch is just a switch. Should be open circuit when the lanyard is in place.

    Thank you. Kinda figured that. Will open it up tonight.

    Odd that it starts at all.

    went to open the switch up and the bolts are stripped. So, I just ordered a replacement switch. Will update when it comes in.

    1999 sltx 1050 running issue

    Replacement switch came in. No difference in behavior. Still starts and dies in @ 5 seconds.

    Any ideas

    Did some more diagnosis.
    With both wires removed from the BL/Y posts in the front connection box. The BL/Y post still shows a connection to ground (6m ohms, but still a connection).

    When I connect the 2 BK/Y wires together off of the board. It start and runs, then stops with the stop button.

    Does the board have traces in it?
    Should there be a connection between the BL/Y post and ground?
    Or, is it just a board with a short somewhere.

    It is just a" terminal board". Those terminals are just riveted onto the non conductive board.
    You should pull it out- I have seen loose nuts and bolts in the electrical box. Something is somehow shorted.

    Is that an aluminum box ?

    The box is plastic. There Is an aluminum plate under the board..

    The LR module appears to be bolted between the plate and the board as well, is this the correct way to mount it?

    Well, I guess I've never looked inside a 99SLTX front electrical box.
    According to this ; http://parts.polarisind.com/Assemblies.asp
    The aluminum plate slides onto 4 studs in the box. 4 rubber washers then go on top of the aluminum, then the terminal board slides over the studs. Most other terminal boards don't use that aluminum plate, are there other ground points on the board ? Wires attached to it ?

    The board needs to be insulated from the aluminum.

    Yes on the LR module. The LR mounting bracket is the ground for the LR- it usually makes contact with the bottom of the terminal board.Right where all the ground wires are mounted. One of those wires is then used to ground the entire box.

    Do you see what grounded the BLK/YEL terminal ?

    To answer your question first, No i didn't see anything that could have grounded the BLK/YL terminal. with the aluminum plate pulled clear of the board, it's still showing a connection (very high resistance, but a connection nonetheless).

    Thinking about this today. there is a ,,, film, on the board and the inside of the hull is Filthy! Wondering if it is just bilge gunk (previous oil leak or submerged or something). Maybe I need to pull the board and Clean it (thinking dawn and a soft brush). The "film" could be creating a contact, somehow.

    Oh, the ills of the previous owners.

    So,,, Looking at the view from the site you linked. Should the LR module connect to the Aluminum plate? and the plate should connect to the ground? the positioning looks odd.

    I cant see a reason for the plate from here.

    Is there a connection on the bottom of the board where the LR attaches ? Or does it need to be sandwiched against the plate to ground ?

    Terminal boards are usually coated with die-electric grease, shouldn't be conductive.
