Throttle Sensor Question

Do the throttle sensors on the carburetor need to be connected in order get spark? Can the two wires just be connected together to work? Sled is a 91 Prowler with a 440.

The reason I asked this is that the wires broke on one of the carb sensors when I took it off. Sooooo if I just splice the two wires together for that carb every thing should be go right?

Just realize what the slide position sensors do before disabling. If there's a mis-match between slide position in the carb and throttle position, (like when the slide ices up and sticks in the wide open position and you let your hand off the throttle expecting to slow down) the safety switches in the throttle block and the slide position sensor switches will kill the engine, preventing a run-away sled.

Hooking the wires together still attached to the wiring harness defeats the safety switches. Be quick on the kill switch

Lots of guys disable the carb switches, they can be a pain in the rear.

I here you Dan. Once had my vintage Ski-Doo Oly go screaming across the yard and t-bone my kids trampoline because the throttle stuck open on start up.
