    remote start not working on westerbeke generator-gctid530298

    I have a 1993 3288 MY with a 5kw Westerbeke gas generator. The generator starts fine from the controls on the generator. It won't start from the remote switches unless the generator has already been warmed up. The switch labeled "preheat" is not doing what is supposed to do (disable oil pressure safety and maybe engage fuel pump). The switch itself is functioning - its sending the proper voltage across. I have read that there is supposed to be a Bosch relay somewhere. Does anyone know where it's supposed to be located. I checked behind the remote panel and its not there. Is it located somewhere on the generator?

    There are two relays in the circuit, one for preheat and pone for the starter. There is also a reset-able breaker on the generator. You should be able to download the wiring diagrams from the westerbeke site, http://www.westerbeke.com/products/WiringDiagrams.aspx
