I have a 15 year old 16kw generac. After service, it will only turn over once when trying to set the exercise mode.

When you say only turn over once, do you mean the engine is struggling to actually move like a dead battery? Do you have the serial number of the unit?

Are all of the red lights flashing after each cycle?

Sounds like a a fuse holder that's loose, or a bad battery connection or bad ground somewhere.
