The battery in question so bad it wouldn't even register on the charger unit to any degree. I know this makes no sense, and kinda negates the whole point of even having a battery charger to begin with, but I learned of the battery it's attached to is too bad it won't even allow you to do ANYTHING with it.

What is the error code f03 on the vector 1092 bettery charger


F03 - Sulfate or Unchargeable Battery

Appears when the battery is highly sulfated and cannot accept normal charge current.

• Follow the steps in "Recondition Mode" to recondition the battery.

• Follow the steps in "Equalizing" to equalize the battery.

• If the situation persists after reconditioning and equalizing, we recommend taking your battery to a certified automotive service center for evaluation

How would I go about getting a charger


Depend on what kind of batteries, and how often you are going to use the charger, and for what purpose are going to use it.

If your battery accidentally discharge far from your home a Jump Start is a must. But Car batteries are shallow Cycle and need to be fully charged. If you want to Set and Forget Charger, then a Smart Charger takes care on his one for the battery. Automatically adjust the voltage and turns off when the charge is completed. Has the Reconditioning option, can display the battery voltage, and can check the alternator. Destroying a $120 battery is more expensive than a Smart Charger.

I use a Vector Smart Battery Charger - 2/10/20 AMP 12V fully automatic.

Retail $49.95 I bought on sale CLEARANCE: $29.95

If you have cars not driven in daily bases, or go in vacation, a battery Tender is a good option too.

Will start but u have to kick start it


Your'e lucky to have a kick start wish I had one. I gather you have both electric and kick on your bike. If the bike starts and runs OK using the kick start, I would suggest either your battery is failing to hold charge and/or not being charged while the engine is running.

First access the battery and put a volt meter across the terminals, without the engine running the voltage should be about 12.5 to 13 volts for a 12 volt system and 6 to 6.5 volts for a 6 volt one. Now start the engine by the kicker when warm open the throttle slowly and watch the meter. you should see the reading increase to about 14.4 volts (12 volt) and about 7.5 volts (6 volt). If no increase then get the alternator and regulator/rectifier checked out. If the meter is showing a voltage increase across the battery then the revs are increased, then the charging system is working
Next remove battery please always use this method: - remove negative lead first then positive. Check the battery fluid level if you can (modern batteries are sealed for life in most cases and you cannot open or check the fluid level them). The level should be at full for all cells fill with distilled water as necessary. You need to get a charger that will charge your battery below 1 amp (car chargers are no good they will fry the plates). If the battery will accept a charge, charge for as long as possible. Refit to bike please use this method connect positive lead first then negative. Try the starter if it tries to crank but the engine still won't start then I would get a new battery. Hope this helps & good luck.

How do i charge the battery on a 1992 honda shadow vlx 600c


First check the battery voltage using a multi-meter set to DC and volt range if reading is below 12V battery has probably one dead cell get a new one, if between 12v and 13V battery should be OK to charge. Remove battery undo negative lead first then positive. Please do not use a car charger or any other charging device that has an output greater that 1 Amp you will fry the battery. Charge the battery for as long as possible. Recheck volts across the battery if above 13V refit battery connect positive lead first then negative.
Start your engine, when warmed up check the voltage across the battery terminals it should be well above 13 volts. Increase the revs and watch the meter the voltage should increase to about 14.5 volts. This shows the battery is being charged. Please remember batteries on bikes only last a few years and short rides do not put enough charge in your battery. Buying and using a motorcycle Smart charger does help. I use a CTEK XS 0.8 12V Motorbike Battery Smart Charger & Conditioner. You get a small wiring harness that fits to the battery with a rubber connector that connects to the chargers plug. This unit will help to keep the charge in the battery topped up.

I have a sterling diamond scooter. How can i use jump start to charge the battery? Is there any emergency portable charger to carry if i get stuck outside and there is no car or power.


It might be easier to carry a spare battery. I am not familiar with your unit. I do not understand how a jump start would work without an external power source.

My 98 blazer acts like the battery is dead but when i hooked it to a battery charger it said it was full and running at 9.1 when it should be running at around 12 then said error f03. so what does that...


It means the battery charger is your problem. Find an old-style simple battery charger, not one of these new "smart" chargers. The simple ones allowed YOU to decide whether to charge or not. Placed more responsibility on you, but a simple charger would WORK for your battery.

At 9.1V, your battery's DEAD.

I have a Lexus Rx400h, the engine won't start. the lights, including dashboard lights, aircon, radio are on, just won't go to ready and start


Can you ensure the car is in park?
Move lever to D and then back into Park and see what happens.
I have heard with this particular model, we have the environmentally unfriendly RX 330, that the batteries lack of charge may play havock with the electrics in these cars.
I religously charge my battery every six months with a smart charger so its always in peak, I also find a quick zap at the first cold snap of autumn / winter gives us trouble free motoring.

I have a Vector Smart Battery Charger 2/6/12 model VEC1088A-M. I am trying to charge a trolling motor battery but I get an error messager "F03." What does this mean?


F03 means 1 of 2 things:
INTERNAL OPEN CELL - Bad battery. Battery needs to be replaced or
SULFATED CONDITION - Battery needs to be reconditioned for 24 to 48 hours. See owner's manual.

My Generator Guardian by Generac 20K Model 0055060 now the battery charger for this unit the output voltage is 15.4 VDC Is this correct for this unit? Thanks Carmelo from Miami.


Hello ,this unit has a smart battery charger. This type of charger will charge at a higher voltage to maintain the battery by keeping the plates clean. Have you checked the charging voltage at various times to verify that the voltage is always at 15.7? The voltage should level off at around 14 volts. Also, try another voltmeter just to confirm the voltage. Some meters can read differently. I had a meter that did this for me and it drove me slightly nuts. I hope this helps.
