connection and our Honda generator
. Nothing has worked . I have contacted the manufacturer ,they suggested shutting it down and rebooting as I have already done . We are located in Curacao
, and there doesn't appear to be any local technicians available here . Has anybody had a similar problem and how did you fix it ?
If memory serves me correctly, the charger qualifies each bat in the system, and if the 1st bat doesn't qualify then the charger goes into fault mode..
The requirements are that the bats be at a minimum of 100 amp.hr. So If bat #1 is lowly discharged then the charger might not return a qualify.
Also make sure all of the ground cables
are connected, one for each bat, as well as the case ground.
If after you put a volt meter to each bat (after being disconnected, and the minimum V-bat voltage is 12.6 or more) and it still doesn't work.
Try switching the charge leads from charger #1 to #2 bat.
If all else fails try connecting one bat at a time.......
So Charger # 1 to bat # 1, nothing connected to charger#2, or bat #2
Then charger #1 to bat #2, nothing connected to charger #2, or bat #1.
