Auto Gen Start Lockout Safety Switch
 
1 Attachment(s)
My Onan QD 12500 won't auto start because it's locked out due to a "safety switch". It starts and runs fine manually, but where would the safety switch be?

Thanks in advance
Bill

Look into the AGS portion to set it to enabled. That's where it is on my Magnum Panel.

As you can see on the right of the screen, all those are enabled. On the left side you see that the generator is running manually. It is also locked out and I can't clear the lockout.
Since the generator runs manually, I would think the issue is not with the genset but something in the coach. What "safety switch" would tell the generator not to auto start?

Press the( Clear Locks ) Tab. This will allow you have AGS back.

Thanks, I wish that worked. If I shut off the generator and press the clear locks, it will clear the "Manual Flag" but not the "Safety Switch".

In have disconnected the coach batteries and reconnected them. Sometimes that clears flags, but not in this case.

I have disabled all the auto start items like the A/C and even the battery chargers an I still can't clear that safety switch.

I've looked in the Newmar Manual and nothing about safety switch for generator. I have the Onan QD 12500 manual and no mention of a safety switch.

I called Newmar after hour service and the message said "King Aire Service" and I haven't received a call back. Maybe I needed to get the King Aire? :) LOL

I think itís referring to the generator slide safety switch. See this post

BINGO! Thanks so much for that advice. My tab wasn't visibly bent, but I had wrapped a hose around the generator yesterday and possibly hit that tab just enough to disable it.
Thanks again...
