All these tests must be done with the engine running.
The MPU has to detect the engine is up to RPM before the field flash circuit can operate.

Now with S1 in START measure the DC voltage at
K15-7
K15-4

Also see if you see the K15 relay open and close as you move S1 from RUN to START and back to RUN while it's running.

K15-7 24 V
K15-4, no voltage on start
The contact dose open and close with S1 start

Based on your measurements it indicates K15 is the problem.
Odd because relays rarely fail.

What should be happening is K15-7 gets 24 volts when the engine is up to speed.
When you move S1 to START K15 closes and should pass the 24 volts on terminal 7 to terminal 4.
However you are measuring 0 volts on K15 terminal 4.

It’s a good thing that with the unit running I can switch to start without running the starter
That part of the job of the MPU. When the engine is up to speed and the MPU detects the RPM and causes the starter to be disabled. It also enables flashing at the same time.

I just woke up, and started reading this before I go back to bed. Swap K 14 and K15. See if your symptoms change.
I did swap out the relays K14 with K15 same problem although when I held S1 in start I do get 120 volt to the convinces outlet

Did you have power at the convenience outlet before you swapped the relays with S1 in START?

With the relays swapped do you get power to the outlet with S1 in START and do you lose power there when you release S1 back to run?
