Default Bandit Chinese Ignition Switch Not Working

After waiting ages for it to arrive it doesn't seem to be working..

Heard about a Resistor that has to be added, anybody do this before?

Cheers!

The clue to the problem could be the word Chinese.

Afraid so! Terminals inside aren't lining up properly when the key is turned 🙄 Can do it by hand ..

Is it a multi-socket that plugs into the back of the switch or are the ignition wires loose?
It sounds like the wires aren't connected to the correct terminals, but with a multi-socket that shouldn't be possible. Unless the socket can be fitted to the switch in more than one position.

Cheers lads. Nothing seems to be easy for me the last few weeks!

Sent on pictures to the eBay seller, hopefully they notice something wrong in the wiring.

It's a 6 wire multi. Fit perfectly into the original harness and can't go in upside down because of a catch on the male socket.
