Thumbs up Broken Wire Syndrome, the Conclusion, I hope!

Confirmed by Engles Motors today. A wire was indeed broken at the ignition switch connector. By the time I trailered it to the dealer the wire was completely broken. No wiggle would turn on anything. They have had one case of this before. FWIW I have never even used the fork lock. Who in there right mind would kipe one of these things?

P.S. the techs were busier than plate spinners on the Ed Sullivan Show because of EWS ring replacements!

So it wasn't because of a tightly cinched tie strap / zip tie?

Broken wire

I had the same issue. Not overtightened, just snapped off about 3mm below the connector?
