What is missing here is a couple of things, what size generator are we talking? a residential, commercial, what control is on the unit. They all reset in different ways. One sure way is disconnect the battery charger first (VERY IMPORTANT or control board can be damaged) disconnect the negative terminal off the battery. leave off for a minute they re conenct and re energize charger. Fault should clear unless you have done damage due to over load.

this temp bypassing is for only the most experienced techs that know normal state of sensors and can simultate them with off machine items

if unit is over 8 years old it has a mechanicial timer for the Cool down run time (after power comes on) these go bad from believe it not "Rust" the timer will need to be replaced with a new model , that most likely will be an electronic timer replacement , now if unit is less than 8 years old . and this is a new install then verify that ,Sense connection on terminal strip on ckt board is connected to land power

change the oil to the correct specification first. As the engine runs the heat changes the viscosity and overheats or trips the oil alert switch. If its over 10 years old change the oil alet magnetic switch
