Onan 45 kw generator with the small replaceable rectangular indicator lamps. Have three or so red ones to replace. I know they’re burned out.

I think they are still available new from the factory.

So it would run for awhile, and then shut down. When I got to it, it was off with the pre high eng temp light on. Cleared that and checked coolant. I added almost two gallons. Discovered lamp test and found the high eng temp and low coolant lights burnt out.

I can’t find out much about this unit searching for it. Not even sure how old.

Visited my local Cummins dealer and the parts guy was awesome. Picked up a handful of red lamps and will replace those that have failed.

45EM made in 1987. Very good unit. If you need that much power.
