The generator was installed 6/24/11 .Every thing working fine . Got a call that it was making a clicking noise like a car with a dead battery.controller was put in the off position. Went by today to check it out and there was no reading on the controller. Put the controller in the auto position and the generator will try to start but not run.The controller felt a little warm to the touch. Ask about any lighting in the area and did say they had a close strike the day before . Got the neighbors phone. Do you think lighting got it ? I put a 8 foot ground rod in .

did you get a chance to look at the damaged controller? Lightning does some strange things to microprocessors. I have had many lightning hits to generators and transfer switches. Always curious about even the smallest of damage to the circuitry.
