Customer Question

I have a Onan Marquis 5000, I'm haveing a spark problem, I have no spark and I have no flash on test light on either side of cool. Was wondering what triggers the ground interrupt to activate cool to fire?? If it has a pick up coil, where is it and where can I get one?

There is an ignition module and ignition rotor mounted inside the generator housing. They are what control the spark at the coil. Both parts can be ordered from any Onan dealer, as well as several places online.
