Default Onan BGE Generator- Oil Pressure Switch Question ?

Hello All,
After doing oil and filter change Generator would not start. It had been running fine before. It was suggested to by- pass the oil pressure switch. Is removing the lone wire from the switch considered by -passing. If not-- how does one by-pass the switch.
Thanks Much

The function of the oil pressure switch is to ground the points ( the negative - side of the coil) when there is no oil pressure. Disconnecting the switch wire at the coil will eliminate it from the circuit.
