I bought anti spark switch for my electrick skateboard (http://alienpowersystem.com/shop/rc-ev-accessories/electronics/alien-antispark-power-switch-2-14s-120amp-max/), I connected it just like on diagram from their webside and I doesn’t work. Doesn’t metter if the button is pushed in or not everything still works (motors are working), anyone know what’s the problem? here are some photos that hopefully will make everything clear:

When they fail, typically the FETs fail closed (thx blasto) (completing the loop). Most likely it is dead - i’d contact APS and get a replacement.
I’ve heard they aren’t super robust, so i might look at one of the Vedder/Fechter switches as an upgrade. I’ve also seen a neat triple direct-FET from @goldenHusky which is a nice option.
Hey, the shiny part of the plug on the switch is on the top
will I have to send back the one I have now? Because it will take long time(and money too) to send it from poland to GB (or something like that I don’t remember)
Contact APS/Bruno - he is a good guy, but can be a bit slow to respond occasionally. I bet he’ll ship you one after basic troubleshooting to confirm it’s dead. Likely won’t need the old switch back, but he’ll let you know.
He is in GB.
Just a quick typo correction, “FETs tend to fail closed (completing the loop)”
