Hello!
My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
An issue like this can be very difficult to diagnose - especially without being able to see it.
Start with checking all connections - paying extra attention to the remote plug, and the connections at the engine control board. Make sure all connections are clean and tight.
Check the connections on the back of the dash switch.
Generac is bad about having connections vibrate loose, due to the small guage wires that they are so found of using.
Let me know how things look.
