Default Onan 4.0 BFA Generator

hello all, I have this generator 4.0 BFA on and off when I disconnect the battery, I changed the rectifier, diode and also the resistor, and it is still turning off, I ask, that other parts may be damaged? Thank you very much for the help you can give me.

You should not be disconnecting the battery with the set running. Why are you doing this? What are you trying to test?

Take away the battery and you take away the control voltage. It will shut down.
