Denning Landseer - Only Starts from Sub starter

Postby TroyP-4216 » Mon Apr 02, 2018 1:16 pm

Hello all.

I am co-owner of an 87 Landseer that will not start from the key switch. When you turn the key, the dash lights up etc but when you turn to start, nothing happens.
We are lucky enough to have some Denning manuals and they refer to a " start safety switch" between the key switch and the start relay. Would anyone happen to know where this is located?
We're hoping it may just be a problem with the start relay though.

thanks in advance

Troy

The safety switch is usually on the engine hatch, to prevent the engine being started while someone is working on it. If the door is not closed properly, you can't start it.

I find it extremely rude that people come on here, ask for advice, but never follow up with feedback on suggestions made.

Thank you for the advice given. The subsequent comment about me being "rude" was not appreciated.
I will certainly provide feedback once I have had a chance to actually investigate. The coach is located interstate from me so I can't just pop out the into the backyard to look at it.
The only switches I have been find initially (at the time of making the original post) were the engine bay light switches on the side hatches.
