We installed this genset last Friday and it started up several times. Now, 3 days later, when we try to start it in manual it will turn over for 3-5 seconds then stop and show an RPM sense loss with error code 1518. We will clear the code and it does the same thing every time. I then called Generac service and they told me to check the mag pick up sensor, which I did, and check the battery (we replaced it with another new one). Still doing the same thing.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Did Generac give you the specifications for the mag pick-up and did you confirm with it cranking and running? How did you test the mag pick-up?
