It is a very small hole in the switch cylinder. About the size of a paperclip or maybe a bit thicker. It is to reset the ignition. If that does not work. you may have to replace the switch. try using aa paperclip or someting to push into the hole. Being vcareful not to force it too much. So it won't break inside.
