Question about Electrical Supplies
I see the light, what do I do about it? Generator won't even attempt to crank. Battery is good. Just changed the oil and coolant.
You probably have a broken magnetic pickup.
You'll have to reset the generator controller, usually this is just a matter of turning the switch of the off position. On most of the generators I've worked on a blinking overspeed light as opposed to a solid one means that the control board can't detect any speed input. Speed input can be either a wire that comes from the generator output, or a magnetic pickup mounted so that it can count flywheel teeth. You don't say which generator this is so I can't guess any better than that.
