Tohatsu key blank

Crazy, but I just haven't been able to locate one. I need a spare for the electronic ignition on our 18hp electric start Tohatsu. No locksmith or chandlery I've visited has one. Any online suggestion?

Re: Tohatsu key blank

Change the ignition switch? It should take about 5 min. and 25 bucks...

Re: Tohatsu key blank

I just remembered this; 5 min. boat time = 2 hours by the clock...

Re: Tohatsu key blank

Looks like it may become a $25, 2hr project to solve for a $2 spare key. Typical boat project.

Re: Tohatsu key blank

I recall being told by a Tohatsu dealer that there are only three different keys. Hense the lack of blanks.

Re: Tohatsu key blank

It appears there are only 3 keys, #301, 302 and 303, supposed to be a number on the key. I found an online source but get this, they want 35$ for a pair of 2$ keys.

Re: Tohatsu key blank

I should think about replacing the switch with a button start, no key. Is there something that would fit to replace the key cylinder?

Re: Tohatsu key blank

On many boats the key switch is wired in series with a push button switch. Thus, you have to have the 2 position switch to "on" in order for the start button to work. My boat has a glow plug switch, also wired in series with the start and key switch. Therefore, I have to have the switch "on" and be holding the glow plug button, in order to enable the start button to work.
