The Zivan Returns

Posted in Charger at 6:32 pm by Administrator

Last week I told you about the on going issues with my charger. This week I got it back and immediately installed it into the car. Then I tested it, the fans did not come on. I called ELCON and spoke with Rick, he told me to check and make sure the IC chip was fully seated. To do this I had to uninstall the charger and remove the cover of the Zivan… when I did I saw that the chip was not fully seated and I pressed it back into the circuit board. This time when I tested it the fans came on. Simple. I let it charge my pack until it shut off. The measured voltage was 142.2 volts.Better then the 140.6 volts it was set at, but not the 148 Volts I requested. I called Rick back and he had me do a quick tweek on the charger and viola! 148 Volts perfecto!
