So - ordered some diodes from Holland....

We had the same problem. We replaced the diode but that did not fix it. It turned out to be corrosion of the connection in the Perkins instrument panel in the cockpit.

Hello All:

Engine does not shut of via key-switch. Traced this to a diode which is Pektron 14 24 394 - I got 3 of those in various circuits of the switch. 

Have been trying to find a place to purchase this part (East Coast US) - ale no luck.

Anybody know where to go please?

Thank you,
