Went to manually turn on generac 16kw generator and it says “switched to off, inspect battery “. Battery is ok but found this wiring harness hanging above battery. Can’t seem to find where it goes. Could this be my problem and does anyone know what it attaches to? Appears to have 3 female pins and a dummy pin. Any help would be greatly appreciated! It appears to have a orange line down the shroud of the wires

Can you pull back the plastic cover and read off the wire numbers. Each wire is individual wired. But it looks like the wire that goes to the 3 exterior led lights on the side

Yep, that plugs into the tri-clops LED assembly on the side. Sometimes people unplug them so they don't have the light shining.

Easily accidentally unplugged when doing battery or plenum recall. I snag em all the time, along with the stepper/mixer wires.
I fix broken stuff.
