SOURCE: kohler 12kw generator starts but shuts down after 3sec

Your gas pressure is too low and you may not have a large enough supply pipe. You need at least 10 inches of water column with the engine running to operate an LP vapor fueled engine. Because the engine is starving for fuel, its governor opens the throttle to WOT (so it goes to high revs) but there isn't any fuel to make horsepower with so the output voltage falls and the undervoltage alarm trips.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Kohler Marine Generator that says OC on the menu when I try to start it. Any ideas?

OC stands for Over Crank. How long does it take before the genset starts?

2012 crv Brake, Vehicle Stability Assist Syatem, and Electric Power Steering dash light have all come on at the same time - Are they related to one problem?

probably. The entire system relies on wheel speed sensors, steering wheel position sensor, yaw and lateral acceleration sensors. When one has a problem, it shuts down the entire system and turns on all the lights. It also sets a a trouble code. Get the trouble code read. That's your starting point.

I am assuming this is while you are driving the vehicle? The light should come on and turn off at start up, as the ABS computer runs a self check. If the issue presents itself while driving, it is likely a wheel speed sensor that is starting to fail. If the computer looses the signal it will turn on the dash light, when it sees a signal again it will turn the light off. Could be a broken wire between the chassis and wheel speed sensor or a bad sensor. If you can, check the ABS codes, they should be stored.

My 1999 Trooper stopped running while I was going 60mph Now it wont start - nothing. All that happens when I turn the key is that the all the indicator lights on the dash board light up.

a defective crankshaft sensor would cause your engine to quit at any speed....but your engine should still turn over...thats the only suggestion I have beside checking and cleaning your battery connections.sorry I can't be of more help

What does it mean when the ABS light comes on. Mine comes on intermittently and when I restart the engine it does not come back on.

I have the same car. This happens to me when the roads are wet and/or snowy. The sensor can get dirty and cause the light to come on. When it dries out the light should turn off. If not try getting a car wash that includes the undercarriage.

Abs brake light comes on after driving 20 to 40 miles. Will go off after shutting off engine for awile then comes on again after 20 to 40 miles. Why?

ABS system is self monitoring.It will perform a peliminary check on itself when you first turn the key on,thats why the light stays on for about 3 secs when you first start it up. It will also perform another check on itself after you reach speed of around 8-12 mph.
For it to come on while driving it must see something wrong at the wheel speed sensors that it knows can not be correct so it is shutting itself down. It has a digital wheel sensor in each wheel that it uses to compare side to side readings. If it sees one wheel spinning faster than the other it thinks one of the wheels is locking up and it activates. Now it could be one of the wheel speed sensors is starting to go bad or it may be something as simple as one of the tires low on air. I would check all of the air pressures in the tires first to make sure the are equal and if that is ok then I would have some one hook a scan tool to it and see what trouble codes are stored in the memory of the ABS module.
