Generator Help Please

Cummins Onan RV QG400 Model 4KY - 26100R on 2017 Thor Chateau 29G. I once saw an online explanation for using the "switch" thing on the generator. The one with the light codes.

I can't find it any more. I have learned how to reset the generator "breaker" switch, but don't know about the nearby "other" switch.

I wish I knew the names of these things.

From the manual -
The generator set control contains extensive diagnostics to detect shutdown faults. Following a
fault shutdown, the control indicates the fault code by flashing the numeric code on the status
indicator in the control switch.
Determine the fault code as follows:
• 3 flashes indicates a service fault (Code 3 fault).
1. Press
STOP/PRIME
on the control switch once to have the 2-digit service fault code
flash.
The 2-digit code consists of two sets of flashes. The first set is of flashes represents
the 10s digit of the code. After a brief pause, the second digit of the code flashes
representing the unit digit of the code. This is followed by a long pause before
repeating the flashing of the fault code.
For example, Fault Code 36 appears as: blink-blink-blink—pause—blink-blink-blink-
blink-blink-blink—long pause—repeat
2. Press
STOP/PRIME
to stop flashing the fault code.
• 4 flashes indicates that cranking exceeded 30 seconds without the engine starting (Code 4
fault)

Thanks very much. Exactly what I was looking for. It was cut and pasted into my motor home file.

The inside control and light can be used to do the same on mine.
