We've loved using our 1003 Torqeedo Outboard
during our Sail from Germany
to where we currently are in French Polynesia
. It's been amazing, no issues, no messing with fuel
Today I got back to the dock
, turned it on and got an Error 42 message. Couldn't get it to start at all so got a tow back.
E42 seems to mean that the battery
has got an incorrect voltage. No idea why. We've been charging
it via 12v for over a year, haven't done anything different.
When I plug
it in to charge now (either via 12v or using their official charger
via the inverter) I get nothing. The red flashing light doesn't work anymore, just seems dead.
I'm pretty stuck now.
No idea how to get a replacement battery
(if that is the issue?). You can't send faulty batteries back via DHL, etc. We'll be in Tahiti
in a week or two which is about the biggest place we'll be in to maybe get a new battery ordered but before I try does anyone have any ideas?
I've emailed Torqeedo but haven't had a reply yet.
All the best,
