Generator won't start

I have a Generac in my 2001 National Tradewinds. The generator won't start.
There is power to the unit. When I depress the start switch, nothing happens. The indicator light next to it flashes for about 15 seconds. Someone has told me there are codes the unit may be sending which may be keeping it from starting. How would I find what these codes are and what they mean?
