Most likely your fuse(s) are/were blown in the transfer switch. Control/Sensing wiring may be inadequate or simply not installed. May have control board failure.

If you are using a Manual transfer switch, then you should manually operate the system. Why don't you use the switch it came with? Why would you use a 200a manual transfer switch on a 17kw generator? The idea is to move your critical circuits into the transfer switch panel. Then it would operate in auto.

Generac 4456 does not start on power loss


I install and work on these everyday. If you hooked up the transfer switch you probable have a control wire wrong. check the utility power sense wire. That lets it no when to start in auto. it could be a relay or fuses. or a control board.
