Onan 8000 generator dash switch stopped working
Hey, I'm hoping someone can help me diagnose why my generartor dash switch is not working (nothing, no clicks or anything). I have an 09 AllStar mid engine diesel, onan 8000 in front does not have a slide making it miserable to service and repair. My dash switch stopped working on my last trip (it won't start or stop the generator). The start/stop switch on the genny itself works fine but now I'm opening my front access hood to start and stop the genny everytime I need it, what a pain! Everything else seems to work just fine with the generator.
I'm trying to find a bad ground or connection and I checked the fuses inside the coolant filler neck cavity (they are both fine). I just need some direction to start checking the most common culprits of this problem. The inside dash switch does light up but pressing and holding does not start or stop the generator.
I'm wondering if I need to take my dash apart to see if a wire came disconnected or should I start with connections at the generator or grounds to frame. Seems like the start solanoid is good as it starts just fine with the switch on the generator.
Thank you in advance for any advice!
