Re: (ET) chargers
Sounds like the same thing I had last year with my I-5.
Tried replacing capacitor - no help.
To make a long story short.....
Take the charger out, clean ALL connections in and on it and re-install.
My cap and diodes were all good, just had dirty connections

Ok, I am officially in the deep end of the pool and I don't swim well.....
While installling my Alltrax, I checked my charger out put...with no
bateries connected... and it read 19.2 volts. I connected it back up and
turned it on, now the reading is 37.2 volts. After 10 hrs of charging it
read 42.5 volts and immediatly after turning it off, batteries read 40.2
Do I have a problem?????
