low oil shut down switches are in the block and only have one wire , usually a yellow wire that is on the kill switch side of the engine.you should be able to unplug this single wire and the unit will run . That is how we test that switch, if we suspect it has a bad switch and the engine will not start we unplug it and we know the oil level is up and it starts then the switch is bad. You could also have other issues besides the low oil switch,you could have a bad kill switch,bad coil,bad coil wire, also the screw on Honda spark plug cap may be bad. I would if at all possible rule out all other items before I would disconnect the oil switch. The double wires you talk of maybe the charging coil and may not be/have anything to do with the oil switch.
