Generator does not start with switch on dash

Windsport 29M. Generator starts fine using start switch on generator or start switch in the control panel above the door. Will not start with the switch on the center of the dash. The light on the generator dash switch illuminates when the generator starts using the other switches Any ideas or suggestions?

Hold it down for several seconds, or until you hear it start. There is a little delay, most likely for priming fuel.

Thanks for the suggestions. But holding the switch down does nothing. Pushing it down should prime the generator and light up the switch but nothing happens. Then pushing the top should start the generator but it does nothing. I guess I will start looking for loose wires.

Chasing down wires and connections...
