Kohler 6EKOD Hi Volt shutdown

Kohler 6EKOD marine generator shutdown 5 secs after start. Showing "Volts L1-L2 High Shutdown" as active fault. When I press the rotary switch a second time to reset, display goes direct to "Overview." Unsuccessfully tried to reset by disconnecting battery. Thoughts?

Re: Kohler 6EKOD Hi Volt shutdown

Has the controller been replaced recently? Do you have the TechMan? If so, did you perform the procedure in 7.10.4?

Re: Kohler 6EKOD Hi Volt shutdown

Thanks for reply. I replaced the controller last summer because the unit kept shutting down for voltage faults (when watching the screen, it was varying wildly). I do not have the tech manual. However, I finally got the unit to reset the Hi Volt fault. Has worked fine since. I'm concerned though because when the controller failed last summer, the tech rep told me it is a weak point in Kohler units. Hence, I bought a back up at same time.
