Question about Honda 3000 Watt Portable Generator
Hi. There are 2 things that control the Auto Throttle and that is the idle control valve (Connected with black and yellow wires) and the Auto Throttle Unit.
Check for 12VDC on the Yellow wire of the idle control valve. Yellow is positive to any good Chassis ground. If you don't have 12VDC then either the Auto Throttle switch is bad or the Auto Throttle Unit iself.
You can gain access to the Auto throttle switch and again check for 12VDC to Ground on both sides of the switch with the switch on. (It may read as high as 13.8 engine running) If you don't get 12 - 13.8 VDC the the Auto throttle control unit is bad
If you have 12VDC to the Idle control Valve and it does not work perform a resistance check across the coil of the Idle control Valve (both wires disconnected Engine off) Black to yellow should read 3 to 4 Ohms If you have no resistance then the coil in the Idle control Valve is bad.
If you need more help just respond here
