Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator
Idle control comes into play when there is no power draw forcing the engine to idle with an electro magent. If you feel that the electro magnet is interfering with governor, temp remove the wire to the solenoid. Usually the idle control will not effect how the engine /gen output power. An overloaded condition will cause the engine the go the full throttle as the internal governor of the engine will try to maintain 3600 rpm. Overloaded condition will greatly shorten the life of the generator/engine. Try to use only about 80 % of rated power. Large motors can draw three times running amps. A compressor using 12 to 18 amps to run can draw over 40 amps to start.
If your generator could handle the load in the past, check the engine for loss of power, or the generator for faulty voltage regulator or capacitors out of range. Easy to check. Connect digital volt meter to plug /load and look at volt reading while running with no load and loaded. Voltage should stay between 110 to 120 under load and with no load (unless goes into idle mode). Good luck

The headlamp relay is activated
The VE1 option is equipped with automatic headlamps, which is activated when the photo sensor detects dark conditions. A code will set if there is a fault in the photo sensor, or in the two CKT's between the photo sensor and the body control module (BCM).
The coil output of the headlamp relay travels through CKT 250 (BLK) and is grounded at G101.
When the headlamp relay is activated, power is supplied to both the LH and RH headlamp fuses through CKT 1346 (LT BLU).
LO and HI beam functions are activated/determined by the multi-function switch on the steering column.
The HI beam function must be enabled by the body control module (BCM).
The headlamp power travels through the multi-function switch at the steering column and is grounded through CKT 750 (BLK).
The flash-to-pass function is also activated by the multi-function switch on the steering column. It is powered by CKT 1840 (ORN) and enabled through the body control module (BCM) via CKT 307 (YEL).
