    Yes. THat is the charger. IT lights up fully when first poered up. Then displays how many volts it is set for (in my case 36) and then after 20 seconds or so boots up and lights up the yellow "aborb" light or when full goes to the green "maintain" light. IN this case the first red lioght just starts to flash.

    Giving the 3 flash error. voltage too high or too low.

    can you measure the voltage when it's giving the error with a multimeter? what is it?

    for the money u are shelling out with solutions and or/ getting this expensive charger fixed why dont u pay for 1 hours labour at the local elctronics guy down at abel point. they would have some gun marine electronics guys there and for the 80 - $100 it would cost u would be worth it..

    Just out of interest kc, does the anderson connector for the battery charger have heat shrink on the pins to cover the join where the wire connects in. Found out the hard way due to a habit of mine (trying to seal electrical connections) that a single layer of dual wall heatshrink is all it takes for a 50 amp anderson connector to not make contact properly - in my case at all, if you extend it too far down the pin. Had me cursing my new 12 volt travel oven thinking it was faulty until I broke out the multimeter.

    Just to level the playing field, are you connecting it up in the correct sequence?
    Top of page 3 in the manual.

    I know "negative last" is a problem so you may have to pull the plug apart and insert the pins one at a time into the socket on the charger leads if that is even possible. I'm unfamiliar with the Anderson gizzards.

    Nice happy ending. Despite testing up OK in the shop when charging a 36 volt system the dealer and company 9Matson) replaced the charger yesterday with a new one...which worked straight away when plugged into my battery bank via the usual connection. Great service. I know the local dealer is selling more and more of these chargers as more of the local reef boats go with the big 36 volt electric motors and they remain the easy option. Having to disconnect each battery and charge at 12 volts is possible but very inconvenient as batteries are often hard to get at.

    Well done matson and local dealer.
