Hi Harry thanks , so got hold of the EVlite ,
pulled fuses , tested across fuses 11V and 85V with ignition on , this isn't what you meant though is it. Where are the 'battery connections' do I need to take off the large cover behind traction fuses ?
Anyway tried a maintenance charge , ran ok for 30ish minutes then dropped out(charge11% went up to 21%) .
EVlite froze .
disconnected EVlite, fuses, lead and will now try again.
EVlite showing 193V -13(15)A 3 21% P 2.7(3)kW 0Wh (in brackets fluctuating between 2 figures)
After 18 minutes cut out again
now showing 188V 0A 3 26% P 0kW 0Wh
Repeated and cut out after 9 mins.
188V... 29% but EVlite not locked out, pump buzzing , maintenance charge menu showing * still, but not charging
