Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
Are you saying that the genset will not even crank, or that it will crank but just won't start?
Sorry for the delay. I work 2 jobs, and help on Just Answer in the evenings.
I had already gone to bed when you replied last night, and I worked a 12-1/2 hour shift today.
IF the fuel pump is running, you have power getting to the controller.
What we need to do now is to check the starter solenoid.
The starter and solenoid are located behind the engine, so that means you will need to take the black cover off the genset. You may need to remove the genset from the coach to do that.
Once you get the cover off, go to the starter solenoid, and test the small wire for 12V while pressing the start button.
Do you have 12V there?
You need to do the check I listed. That check was not to see if the starter solenoid works, but to see if you are getting current from the controller to the solenoid.
Yup. The wiring harness is either broken, or has a short in it somewhere. It happens more than one would think.
Was this what you wanted to know?
