Is alternator working? If alternator is bad, the engine will start and as soon as the system check goes through it's check, it shuts off the engine. Oil pressure switch will do the same.

The oil pressure is right and the alternator is charging ... It finally started up after we let it set still for 3 hours and the weather warmed up to 65• what else could it be?

Been out of town. Is the Deutz fuel shutoff solenoid loosing voltage ad killing engine? If it is, it has to be a safety switch, oil, water, alternator, etc, that is killing the unit.
