A guest on board switched my ignition off whilst motoring.
Trying to be helpful.
The engine kept running but I only noticed a few mins later when I spotted the instruments were off
My Perkins control panel has a electric ignition switch that turns on the instruments and starts the pressure alarm etc and I presume power onto the starter etc
Then a momentary push button to start
To stop it’s an electric button.
Does any one know if running with the ignition off for a short while could cause problems ? I’m naive about these electrics but always assumed the shutdown order super important!
The main engine power switch was on throughout.
Many thanks in advance
