C34 MK II Battery Selector Panel LED
« on: July 03, 2018, 07:37:23 AM »

Hello
Does anyone know what the LED is indicating? Both selector switches are in the off position yet the LED remains on. I do not see any mention of it in the manual.

Thanks
Dale

Your windlass breaker is pulled out and activated.  Push it in (it's pretty hard, need to push hard and hear click).  LED should go off.  I believe Windlass is directly connected to battery.

Hi
Thanks for the reply. I did check that a few days ago and agree these breakers do not work easy. I can add a little more to the story now.
I was checking my battery terminals and took the negative cable off #2. The LED went out. I touched the cable back on #2 negative and the LED came on. I checked the voltage on the battery and is was less than 11 volts which is weird as I just charged it to full 2 days earlier.

I think #2 battery is dead. #1 battery is fine and full. I'm still puzzled about why the LED stayed on with selector switch off though. I will check the windless breaker again, that could be the reason and maybe the windless is just connected to #2.

Otherwise, it is a mystery.

Thanks
Dale

Hi Roc
You are correct. The windless does bypass the battery selector switch and is connected to #2 battery. With the breaker pulled out, the LED stays off when #2 battery is connected.
Now the mystery is; why is the windless is draining #2 battery when not operating?

Thanks
Dale
