How do I test a starting relay and a PTO safety switch on a 1994 416?

Download this file for wiring. The diagram for the start circuit may help.

You may have the same relay used in another circuit so trading them may be an option.

Very popular relay so should be easy to get a spare.

Different relay but this explains how they work and how to test

 

Pto switch

Do you have a meter?  Continuity will be your friend!

Yes, I have a meter and know how to use it. I also have a nice test light that shows volts. I am still learning electrics, but can do the job when instructed.

Will a faulty oil pressure switch keep the Onan 216 from starting?

The oil pressure switch turns on the oil pressure lamp when there is no pressure, on some models it also turns on the hour meter when there is pressure.  There is no other function, so the answer is no.

Is there a neutral safety switch on my 1994 416? Is it the same switch as the parking brake switch? If there is an independent neutral switch where is it's location?
