6 prong ignition switch

I'm looking for a switching diagram for a 1990 FXST ignition. All lights work in accessory position, but in the start position nothing works. I found a way to bridge the power to the switch to make it start, but then none of my lights work. Anybody have a diagram?

Welcome Taco to HDTalking, you will find a lot of helpful riders and enthusiasts who will help you shortly. It sounds like the switch is worn or damaged so that the contact links inside do not make contact. Probably easier just to buy a replacement...

Re: 6 prong ignition switch

yeh, I did see this diagram, but it seemed to be more of a three prong. I was thinking new switch, but really wanted to ride tomorrow. Guess I'll have to wait until the new switch comes in. Thanks for the reply, though.

Glider has you covered, I was trying to get the one wiring diagram, but my picture editor had problems managing the GIF files to a decent sized JPEG for easy viewing.
