Use an inexpensive digital voltmeter to measure the voltages on the wires that plug into the generator on the back and holler back with those numbers. Unless they changed the wire colors, you should have a yellow wire that must have 12 volts all the time. If it is missing, suspect a blown 15 amp blue fuse. The fat output wire must also have full battery voltage on it all the time. The green / red wire will have about 2.0 volts when the ignition switch is on and the battery light is on. That wire is supposed to go to full battery voltage when the generator is working.
