contacts in kill switch probably corroded or gummed up see if it will come apart for a cleaning. if not try lubricating it and switching on off about 50 times with unit off then fire it up and see if it will work , reminds me old power window switch that is reluctant to work, might try contact cleaner if you can get it into switch contacts, Luck, ben
