    The kill switch works like this. The kill switch grounds both ends of the capacitor when the switch is moved to the off position. This reroutes the stored voltage from its intended path to the ignition coil and sends it to an engine ground, thereby "killing" the ignition so the spark plugs "cannot" fire. A black and yellow wire usually identifies this circuit.
