Question about Electrical Supplies
I have a Honda ES6500 generator that runs and generates fine. With no load on it and auto throttle on it will not idle down. I unplugged the solenoid and get no dc voltage going to it. I can jump 12vdc to the solenoid and it will idle down. Sound like the auto throttle controller but where is it and how can I check it?

Hi there .
In my opinion you should remove the starter and check the starter first . After you remove the starter get a good 12v battery and 2 wires and test the starter . Make sure to not invert polarity . After you touch the wires on the contactor (small solenoid on the side) see if the overrunnig (part with gears) comes out easy and with no obstruction . If the overrunning does not come out you could have a bad contactor (part # 31204-ZA0-003) or a bad starter (part # 31200-ZA0-701) .
Hope this help
