Working on a bus that will only start from the back ignition switch. Changed front switch and start relay. Checked all fuses and circuit breakers. Nothing happens when you turn key in switch. Solenoid in side compartment clicks but no start. Go to back panel and turn key on and bus starts right up. Any ideas?

Does the bus have a vandal lock system?

We have 3 like this and they will start from the back ignition switch even with the vandal lock system engaged. Bypass the vandal lock system and try starting from the front.
