Generac 58730 17KW

Hello there, I have a 17KW Generac generator.
It is having an RPM Sense error.
When I start it, the generator starts then Revs very high, then shuts down and displays RPM Sense loss.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The serial number is 6152845

Thanks Brooke

Welcome to STAK...…. :)

I moved your question to the proper forum.

does it make voltage? If you got nothing else, plug a cheap light bulb into the gen first, see if it comes on as the generator starts and dies

Without voltage, the governor has nothing to sense to regulate the speed
