Thanks for the help. Do you think it will be evident if the load resistors are busted?
Not always. Sometime they will look overheated, but sometimes not. If the cells are attached and the balance shunt is blown (stuck on), the resistor for that channel will be warm and you could feel it if you touch them. You can also test by measuring the voltage across each one. If the cells are below the balance voltage, the resistor should have zero volts across it. If you see cell voltage, then it's probably bad.
