Electric choke not working on Tohatsu M90A

Rather annoying....Is there any simple way of testing is it a issue with the key mechanism or the solenoid?. I was thinking of giving + power to the solenoid, bypass directly from the battery and that way check is activated when powered or not ? Any other suggestions?

That's the easiest way to do it-except you'll find using the battery lead from the start solenoid somewhat easier.

is it not easier to stick a multimeter across the terminals and activate the key/switch to see if there is any voltage?

Thanks for good advice. After installing the multimeter tested and...click, it worked! Must have been a bad connection. So now sorted, thanks again.
