Onan generator remote switch problems

My generator is an Onan Marquis Gold 5.5kw. This spring I was unable to shut it down with the remote switch. i saw many threads addressing remote switch problems and wanted to post this because I was able to solve my problem. I checked the function of both the remote and local switches and they were ok. The wiring harness was ok. There was no corrosion on any connectors. I finally thought that trying to make the female connector pins a little snugger might help and it did solve the problem. These connections tend to get a little sloppy, or loose, over time so a gentle squeeze with needlenose pliers was all it took to make them a snug fit.
