ME-RC50 remote, Onan8K genny. During power outage here in Texas, I wanted to test Auto Generator Start/AGS starting based on battery volts. Set the AGS up on the Magnum remote and sure enough, it kicked on when it should have...Yea! Then it turned off after 2 min or so, then started up again, then turned off and started again. OK, I disabled AGS and just started genny and it was fine BUT the red fault light is blinking with Fault Test. I shut everything down and disconnected power and plugged in and red fault light will not stop flashing. No other symptom. Everything seems to work fine. Green led Inverter light in basement is blinking as it should while inverting. I found Fault test is the 02 part of AGS set up but can't get it out.

Help? Operator error?

Disconnect the remote from the inverter.

Wait ten minutes with the power off to the inverter.

Now manually turn ON the inverter without the batteries connected.

Finally reconnect the remote, manually turn the inverter off, and restore battery power.

Turn the inverter back on, but first, cross your fingers, and pray to the inverter Gods.

If the Magnum is not under warranty and you truly need auto start generator, move to Victron.

Thank you for the suggestions. I wound up calling Magnum and the tech just said to do a soft reset, which cleared the fault. Still unsure of what it was. Tech said reset usually works.

Land Yachters,

So what is the procedure for a soft reset?
