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

I need a diagram for the air ride suspension on a 1997 Lincoln Continental.


http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on suspension ,then under subsystem suspension controls will pop in there on their own . Click the search button then the blue link. Looking at the diagrams i don't think there is much you'll be able to do. Computer in charge , testing for diagnostic trouble code's should be first step in diagnostic procedure . Be carefull you don't short out the control module .

Control Module Power and Ground The vehicle dynamics control module (5A919) is located above the upper luggage compartment trim panel and lower module tray. Module power is provided by Circuit 418 (DG/Y) at Pins 36, 37, 56, 57, 58 and is powered through Fuse 7 (30A) in power distribution box. Module ground is provided through control module wire harness Pins 6, 39, 40 and 60.
The data link connector (14489) (DLC) is located in the passenger compartment under the instrument panel, 300 mm (12 inches) right of the steering column. This connector allows communications between the vehicle dynamics control module and either Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent or Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostics System (SBDS)® 001-00001 or equivalent.
When the CHECK RIDE CONTROL message is displayed in the message center indicator (10D898), a system error has been detected by the vehicle dynamics control module and is stored in the control module. This diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will be retained for the next 80 ignition switch cycles. If there is no repeat of the same error during these 80 ignition switch cycles, the control module will erase the DTC.
Because of this self-erasing memory, a customer may have had a concern "just a few days ago" that is not retrieved from memory when Diagnostic Test Mode (DTC) "Retrieve/Clear Continuous DTCs" is executed. This must be kept in mind if you must tell customer that no current concern has been found.
When the vehicle dynamics control module detects a concern, the air suspension system is disabled for the current ignition cycle. If the condition causing the concern clears up during the current ignition switch cycle, the system will not reactivate.
For example, if the customer has severely overloaded the luggage compartment, the system will not be able to trim the vehicle without exceeding the compressor run time. This will generate a DTC that disables the computer controlled suspension system. If the customer then drives the vehicle and unloads the luggage compartment without turning the ignition switch OFF, the system will not adjust for the new load. The customer will experience poor ride quality and the vehicle will not adjust trim.

Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's are ?

99 Corvette Headlights open and close for no reason When I'm driving down the road they will just pop up and a little while later close. Then I hear what might be a motor, Any suggestions? Thanks, Don


Could be the switch going bad or a short in a wire. If it had ever been in a accident that is where i would look for a broken or smashed wire.

Headlights 2000 Chevy astro van dont work they come on some times but go right off i think theirs a ground loose or some thing new battery new alternator


I'd check the headlamp relay in the under hood fuse / relay box to start . The relay is energized by the BCM - body control module !
Voltage is available to the headlamp and panel dimmer switch at all times. When the headlamp and panel dimmer switch is activated, the two following actions occur via CKT 352 (WHT):
?€¢
A headlamp enable request is sent to the body control module (BCM)


?€¢
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).

My Honda EB3500X Shuts off when auto throttle is switched on making me run full throttle at all times. Cause? Solution?


if your engine shutting down, then your auto throttle is working.
when you hit the switch watch the throttle arm move on the carburetor to the idle position,if so you may have to clean the carburetor jet and fuel nozzle ports.possibly this occurs when unit has been stored for quite some time.once jets are cleaned it should maintain idle.

I have a coleman 5000 that won't hold voltage at 110 volts under load. It fluctuates up and down. The motor is running steady. What could be the cause of this?


govenor problem maybe does the engine sound slower when a load is on.
you will need something to read the power frequency

3000 rpm produces 50hz uk
3600 rpm produces 60hz

so if you have a meter to measure frequency you will also know what speed the engine is running at

I'm reading 130VAC on the output. Can this be


It should read 115v-120v with full load. Yes, you can slow the engine down just a little, depending on the engine, there will be a high rpm adjustment. 130v with full speed, no load, is really not too bad.

Three year old coleman 5000/6250 generator. High


Your RPM's are too high. There is no voltage regulator in coleman generators (generator is actually made by generac) and is 100% dependent on engine speed. There is a screw under the tank when your looking in from the recoil side. It controls the governor arm. Screw it in and it incresses the rpm, out decrease. Plug something in that draws a decent load while setting the rpms since you want it to put out 120 and 240 underload. Your idle voltage does not matter.

Coleman 5000 generator will not idle up under load


Hi

You have to find the governor linkage.There is a spring adjusting by a screw to increese speed to get more power.Try to locate it.

Hello I have a coleman powermate 5000 that i need a wiring diagram for the brigg and stratton moter some of the wiring has be destroyed and i need a diagram to get it back running can you help me PLEASE....


I can't get a wiring diagram or a manual without the model. type, and code off the engine.
What I can do is describe the usual wiring and see of that helps.

The ones I've worked on have a very simple wiring harness,
a black wire runs down into the front of the engine, this is the kill wire that attaches to the ignition module (coil), the other end of the kill wire connects to the center terminal of the on/off switch.
A white wire runs from the switch to the oil shutdown module, at the switch it's connected to the terminal that's closed when in the run position. The other switch terminal connects to a wire that runs to the frame ground. The gray wire from the oil sensor module connects to the oil sensor on the side of the engine.
That's pretty much all of the wiring there is for an engine that doesn't have electric start.

Rate me please,
Carl
