Re: Old BMS Hardware Thread

Yes a big thanks to Peter for helping us. We now actually have an idea of how to get it working. SOC randomly started to work today as well which was nice even if it was for only a few mins.

Which resistor do you think might need changing?

Re: Old BMS Hardware Thread

The nicely melted chips.

Will send pictures tomorrow of the car setup but it is very confusing. In fact that's an understatement its a nightmare to see what wires go where. Its probably not going to help you much.

The cheap Asian PIC programmer has decided to stop working (voltage low error when trying to write to chip). So we bought a proper pickit 2 programmer but doesn't attach to th...
