I have a 16 year old 16kw generac . It will run in manual mode and transfer power. When I put it in auto mode and try to set the exerciser , the led red lights flash but do not stop after ten seconds and the generator does not start up.

It sounds most likely that the exercise switch is bad, which you can find here: https://shop.gentekpower.com/products/g ... led-others

Very easy to swap out and is the usual suspect.
