Re: Link 2000 OL fault

I would suggest you replace the wing nuts on your battery posts with regular nuts.

Re: Link 2000 OL fault

Thanks for the responses. Will go wire by wire. Why change the wing nuts? Can they back off?

Re: Link 2000 OL fault

Start with the Shunt. 1st take it out completely, and clean it up with a wire brush. Once it is clean and shiny, reassemble. THEN do each connection, one at a time. The Shunt and/or it's connections is the issue most of the time. As its working with millivolts it is very susceptible to connection/corrosion/cleanliness issues. Many systems have been trashed when all that was wrong was the shunt was dodgy due to corrosion.
