Re: And now my I will not charge!!

I’ve found someone in my local area who can replace the resistor so I’m removing the inverter at the moment.

Can someone tell me the secret to this connector? Where is the release mechanism?

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

I had a good look and I don’t see any reason why I can’t remove the unit. I’ll see if I can find someone local to work on the board. Do we know what resistor to order? And where to get it? I appreciate your offer to work on it. I hope someone around here will do it but Its comforting to know that i ...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

So I finally got back into the inverter and that resistor is cracked https://imgur.com/a/CL1X54H The part # is obscured by the potting and it’s proximity to the 2nd resistor beside it. So... any guesses as if this could be the cause of the charging problem or if it is a result of another problem? An...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

And there is no error light when using l1. Again I’ll check the exact sequence of the lights this evening if that’s helpful.

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

The charge light blinks when I plug in.

I’ll open it up again tonight and photograph that component more closely.


I’m really glad you saw that. I was quite disappointed when I couldn’t see anything wrong.

Thank you

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

So I opened up the inverter again and I couldn’t see anything obviously wrong. Images of the circuit boards are below along with a closeup video scan. I wiggled all the spade connectors on the board but it didn’t change anything. Bottom of the top board https://imgur.com/a/w6eQjSW Video of the botto...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

Great , thank you! I will have a look at removing that board. I was very careful to not get debris into the electronics.

I see there Is no gasket on the lid just a sealant. What type of sealant is It? I’ll need to get some.

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

I see the troubleshooting thread started. Looks like a lot of us are in need of help with this issue. I’m going to keep this thread going for my car. Hopefully it will help other folks who are at my level of knowledge. I’ve dug into the rear compartment and taken some photos of the internals. https:...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

Ok, cleaned the charge port with q-tips. This is what it looked like before I cleaned it. https://imgur.com/a/LFkjiVO Unfortunately there was no change in the charging behaviour. I tested it on a public charger after work. This particular charger really wanted to work so it kept restarting. Here’s W...
