Re: SALVAGING CELLS/FAULTY PACKS(charger ticking/not chargin

when i try to charge the pack the charger light stays green..

and the charger makes a ticking sound every second or so when connected to the batts..

could the damaged bms stop the pack from charging,or could it be some thing else

thanks

Re: SALVAGING CELLS/FAULTY PACKS(smoking bms why???)

i managed to rewire the bms wires to there orignal cell placment and no smoke..bt i probably damaged the b.m.s
well at least i learned that wiring the bms to particular cells worked,

now im going to start charging/dicharging the pack,so hopefully no more smokie

Re: SALVAGING CELLS/FAULTY PACKS(where 2 get bms wires??)

i was just about to start soldering the bms wires.cutting the excess platic bits around the wiring that was left on some of the tabs,and i shorted a couple of cells together..

does that mean the whole pack is gonners or just the 2 cells that shorted...bummer
