4) Since (as stock) the GRAY wire is incoming power, if you're not going to use the RUN/STOP switch, just connect that wire to the WHITE/Black wire which will then power the ICM & Coil whenever the keyswitch is ON...

Ok, so everything seemed to be going fine, but I’m not getting a spark, which means the coil isn’t getting power, correct? I spliced the white/Black to the grey wire, so we should have the power issue solved, no?

Or did I miss something? Now I spliced them above the ICM if that makes sense. I could also run the grey to the white/Black that goes to the coil but that would bypass the ignition switch, right? That would not be my goal.

Replaced fuses, no change. Testing the coil just in case.
