1999 Rexhall Auxilary Start Switch
Posted 27 July 2011 - 10:45 AM
Access to the relay area seems to be behind the fuse circuit board and would require its removal,is this in fact the case and how do I diagnose the problem of switch or relay?
Thanks for any comments and help.

Sounds like an ignition switch or bad connection problem maybe.

The Auxiliary Start Switch= Battery Combine Switch= Battery Boost Switch is a device for connecting CHASSIS with HOUSE battery banks.
An IGNITION SOLENOID (not to be confused with starter solenoid) is a device that, when energized by the ignition switch supplies chassis battery power to all items that only work when the ignition is on. Items such as starter interlock, dash HVAC fan, etc.
Do all other functions that normally work only when the key is in the ON position work? If so, the ignition solenoid is OK. If none of them do, the ignition solenoid is not working. This could be caused by a bad solenoid or a ignition switch or wiring from switch to solenoid (solenoid not receiving signal from ignition).

All other ignition items work when the key is on.
Mounted on the fuse panel is a red button labelled Aux start switch with instructions to test:turn off engine,disconnect shore power and press. Isolator relay should click,,,,,no click.
