Default Mel-017a won't start with toggle

Maybe my first post was to vague. I am having trouble with my mep-017a starting. I cannot get the engine to crank with either the remote keyswitch I have set up or locally at the start/stop toggle on the control panel. I have double checked the switches and all are in the correct position for which starting mode I was trying. Also will not crank on emergency start. I jumped the starter solenoid and it started right up. It will shut off as it is supposed to both from remote stop or locally at the panel. I checked the connector plug for loose wires and found nothing. I have changed relay K4 and that also made no difference. Any ideas?
