Battery charger issue

Post by FishEastCarolina » Fri Apr 03, 2020 10:40 am

Called minn Kota and they were no help surprisingly. I’ve had good luck in the past with their support.

I plugged my trolling battery in last night and all three lights on my charger illuminated and the charger makes a humming noise. I have the yellow charging light, red check conn light, and green charged light.

Is the fuse blown in the positive cable or is this thing finally toast.
new day the same way

Yeah I called minn Kota and it’s toast. I pulled out my multimeter and tested my battery as well as the charger. The charger was surging crazy high. It lasted over ten years. Was a good run.

Ten years! I'd say you got your money's worth out of it. =D>
