I have a CAT generator unit 3500/ SR-B4 that will not start.

Customer Question
I have a CAT...

I have a CAT generator unit 3500/ SR-B4 that will not start. there is a service code 0248.02 and 030. I have tried to reset the system but nothing works. What would you recommend?

Mechanic's Assistant: We'll do all we can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Heavy Equipment Mechanic can help you best.

I ran the unit yesterday for about 15 minutes and it ran fine. When I shut it off the controller starting flashing the stop, low oil pressure, and E-stop lights. it showed RPM with service code 0. the lights continue to flash and it will not start. Is there a comm failure with the ECM, and if so, what should I check? thank you!

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Heavy Equipment Mechanic should know?

Not that I can think of...
