Question about Inverter Vector 400-Watt Power
2nd sason with 400 watt vehicle 1024 inverter. The power light goes on then the red light flashes slowly. After restarting vehicle and or inverter it works but same problem occurs again.
Restating the question - 400 watt inverter is turned on and running with the vehicle turned off.
After starting vehicle the red light of the inverter is on with no power output from the inverter.
If you turn the inverter off then on inverter operates normally.
Solution - this is normal operation - my inverter does the same thing. When you start the vehicle
it draws a lot of current from the vehicle battery which causes a drop in battery voltage. Most inverters have a low voltage input safety and will fault the device.'
If the problem is turn on inverter then the red light starts flashing... I am thinking you
have the same problem as the one I replaced - it broke... I am sure some capicator
or other component in the circuit failed... My solution was to purchase a new one...

These inverters are notorious for this. Like the previous posting, it is probably a bad capacitor or other component. Try to keep them unplugged when you start the vehicle. The power outlet gets a jolt of DC voltage on startup. I recently bought the one below and it has been working great for quite sometime: http://batteryinternational.com/400-watt-power-inverter.html
