    Default Choke light

    Iíve been trouble my 81 electric choke. I have looked at the drawings and have neared it down to the oil pressure switch. It is the only thing in the circuit that I have not checked. I have an oil pressure gauge and it is behind the distributor. Does anyone know where the oil pressure switch is located?

    The gauge switch is the pressure switch.

    If your choke light is on, the wire for it should be plugged into the RT side of the carb.

    Wire is plugged in. Light is on. Unplug wire from choke and light goes out. Puzzled. Voltage unplugged is 13.2 vdc, plugged in is 0 vdc. As I understand it, No voltage to the choke causes the Choke light to turn on.

    Start checking your ground's.
    Make sure they are clean and free from dirt/rust or corrosion.
    You can usually find them along the frame.
