Re: I have an electric start Gen.wont turn over with key....
Most likely your battery has a cell or two dead oe weak. I think if you replace it you will find it working as it should. The batteries used in this gear is not of high quality. They generally fail in two years r so especially if left not maintained an go down.

or find a loaned good charged battery.
or buy a new one, ouch.
can also be you left head lamps on.. Jump start it
or can be phantom drains. (ask)
of can a dead charge system if the problem repeats after the jump.
Electrical problems. Start with battery. Condition? terminal corrosion? Charging system? will it jump start? if it will but dies when jumper cable is removed, charging system has problem.
Auto parts store can check battery, charging system read error codes. you may be able to find problem. If you check google I bet you are not the only one.
IT's those short drives that burn down a battery! The starting of an engine requires mucho electric to get it running. The alternator then charges the battery, but slowly! If you also have the lights and stereo on it is even slower. Get the battery FULLY charged with a commercial battery charger. Then check to see if the alternator is charging up the battery after you start it. If not, replace the alternator. If the battery dies overnight or in a few days...replace the battery.
Make sure you have the car properly in Park with lights off and try. If there's no clicking you either have a very loose terminal on the battery or the battery is no where near charged up enough. Try to jump start with someone wiggling the wires for the jumper cables. Once it starts clicking, leave the wires alone and let the battery accept a charge about 10 minutes while the other car is hooked up and then try again.
i would start by checking the connections on the battery and having the battery tested, also why where you taking it to the shop?, if the connection are dirty a jump start wont work, they may look clean but loosen them and twist them on battery terminals to make good connection then tighten them ,and make sure battery is fully charged,
you may find you have a bad earth somewhere, so i would check the earths. if you have a bad earth at wont matter how long you leave it running the charge will just dissipate, then i would check the alternator again if its not working it wont matter how long you leave your engine running it will not charge the battery.
