I installed my second Link 2000 3.5 years ago and it has worked fine till yesterday. I fired up my Honda
and pushed the "Charge" button on my Link 2000 control panel
. About 2 minutes later, it dropped from "Charge" to "Accept". Before starting the generator
, it read -74 amp hours on bank #1 and -40 amp hours on bank #2. After pushing some of the buttons on the Link 2000, I found that the screen
showed that battery
bank #2 was a 0 amp hours and the charge rate had dropped to about 5 amps instead of the normal 20+. Bank #1 stayed fine and kept taking the amps and volts went up to 14.25 on both banks after a while.
After a couple of hours, I turned off the generator and as the night passed, bank #2 showed no signs of being used. It showed +5 Amps when we went to bed
and was the same in the morning. Bank #1 was up to about -35 hours.
I've check all the parameters of the Link 2000 and they are the same as they have alway been.
Bank #1--220 amp hours and Bank #2 is 110 amp hours.
I fired up the generator this morning and it continued as it did yesterday.
One other note-- when the generator is turned off, if the amp hours show as a +, they get reset by the Link 2000 to 0. This happened on bank#1 but not on bank #2.
Do I need to do a master reset and reprogram the unit? Just not sure what it wrong but I've effectively lost
1/3 of my amp hours.
