    battery charger help!

    everything was working fine... went out on the boat hit a few rough waves taking off from a tournament get home two of my batteries bounced around a lil bit smashing the fuse for one of the charger lines.... i replaced the starting battery with a bigger starting battery just because it was about time that was the one battery that didn't move... so i replaced the fuses with a bigger one b/c that was all the store had and i though they would work now my charger won't charge my batteries.....

    i have a basspro xps 3 bank charger the power light charge light and go fish light is flashing... could anyone tell me why it won't charge or what the flashing lights mean?!

    thanks!

    do you have a manual that tells you what the lights mean? if not you probably need to get one. until then you may check to see if your fuse holder or wiring was damaged. good luck

    Could mean it's not making proper connection to charge. My charger will do that when not making proper contact. Sounds like charger's trying to tell you somethings not right.

    Call basspro and get the contact number for the xps charger company and they will be able to tell you what is wrong over the phone. I had a few questions about one a while back and they helped me out.

    When I had trouble with my charger they told me to unhook all connections and I think wait about 5 minutes before reconnecting.. They also wanted the model number of the charger, age and type of batteries, and what voltage was being received at each battery. Do you have a volt-meter?

    i just replaced all my fuses, had my batteries checked by me and another person on two devices... and they checked good... took all other wires off the batteries and just hooked up the charger wires still does the same thing... un bolted the charger from the boat set it on back deck along with other batteries to so that all could breathe well... acted like it wanted to charge but still just flashed at me... is there anything i could do/try to possible get it to work...

    thanks for all your help!

    Sounds like it's time to contact Promariner. Is your charger still under warranty? If not, they may discount the price on a replacement.

    Re: battery charger help!

    Im with Artcarney on this one....sounds like you may have it wired wrong......It took me a while to learn that I had to run a negative wire to a postive terminal to cross the batteries in a 24V system....You may google search it and find a diagram of how to hook it up...All of my lights would flash when i had it wired incorrectly, granted mine was a Dual Pro but I'm sure the same principles still apply
