Customer Question

I just replaced the fuel pump in my genset microlite 4000. When I put everything back together there was no power to start switch. There is power to the terminal but not to the switch. Any Suggestions?

There is not supposed to be power to the switch. The switch operates a ground circuit, not a hot circuit.

If it was working before, but not now, you either have a wire disconnected, or left off, or you don't have good battery power to the genset.
