Onan dash switch

not a big problem, but my genny start switch on the dash has a light to show the genny is running. well the light does not work anymore. the switch itself still works to turn it on and off. so i would like to replace the switch. any ideas where i can buy the replacement?

You only use half of the switch (either left or right - doesn't matter)

I also ordered a custom actuator

bwanna2016-

I believe this a version of the Carling V8D1 rocker switch. The tricky part is getting one wired correctly for the lamps. I believe this one from eBay is a match.

The tricky part is finding a switch with an independent light meaning that it can illuminate with the switch in the center position. The one I installed was the only one I could find and it works perfectly. You have to identify the wires coming up to the dash in order to connect it properly. There will be a start wire and and stop wire along with a ground and a power wire for the light. I installed the switch upside down so the light in on the bottom just like the original. The power wire for the light is active only when the generator is running.
