Spark Switch problem

  • I have just the regular spark switch I bought new several years back and I just now got around to trying it out. I hooked it up to my plane and set it up to where I thought it was right. I get the red led light indication when I flip the switch and then it goes out if I flip off the other way. I am using the recommended voltage. But, when I go to start the engine, I don't get anything, it doesn't act like it wants to start. So I pulled the switch out and hooked the ignition straight to a battery, and the motor starts right up. My question is there something that needs to be programmed in the powerbox switch or a special sequence it needs to be turned on/off?

    Any help is appreciated.
