Code 32 Low Cranking Speed Sense.
Obviously, if the engine is starting, it is not cranking too slow.
The first thing you need to do is to connect a frequency meter to the output leads of the genset, and press and hold the start button for a few seconds, to keep the engine running for a few seconds.
What frequency reading do you get?
