Schumacher 80-20 battery 2a 10 speed charger. What does it mean when the light indicator that normally shows amps or p% of battery charged, is flashing zeros and eights?


All automatic battery chargers in the automotive market today have some sort of voltage regulation to prevent overcharging the battery. The rate of the flashing is dependent on the battery type, its rated capacity, the degree of discharge, its age, the temperature, as well as the amperage rating of the battery charger.

If the charger's green LED begins blinking when you connect the charger clips to the battery, the amperage in-rush current to the battery is reaching the pre-set shut-off voltage and the charger is shutting down. The voltage will drop as soon as the charger shuts down, turning the charger back on. This may also mean the charger has detected a battery problem - for instance, its ability to take or hold a charge. Sometimes a battery may be sulfated (accumulation of lead sulfate on the battery plates), and the sulfation is creating a high resistance to the current flow (ability to accept a charge). Or, perhaps the battery is deeply discharged (below 8-volts).

Some batteries has been stored for a long time and uncharged and even the aren't been used they are dead, try an other new battery. the one you have is probably dead. sorry.


Batteries that have been left in an uncharged state will sulfate the plates and render them useless. Only by removal of the sulfate will they be useful again. This is a
very expensive process only accomplished commercially.
Replace battery and keep it fully charged to prevent sulfation. This can be done using a battery maintainer not
to be confused with a trickle charger. Maintainer only charges battery when needed not all the time like a trickle
charger. A trickle charger will also cause a battery to become dry which also damages the cells.

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 DO I FIND OUT IF MY BATTERY IS GETTING A CHARGE


Whilst all of the original answer is correct (and also very well explained) it doesn't explain how to check your charging system output. If your battery is always losing it's charge it could be either a faulty or dying battery that needs changing for a new one or it is not receiving a charge. To check this you will need a digital meter set to less than 20volts DC. Check the charge across the terminals and as previously described you hopefully have 12.5 volts or slightly higher as this means the battery is charged. Start the bike up and get it idling/ticking over. Recheck the voltage across the terminals and hopefully you will have around 13.5 volts. If you do, then your charging system is working and if not it is at fault and needs investigating. If the battery is being charged but still loses voltage over time whilst standing then as I said the battery may be past its best and want replacing. There is sometimes another reason for voltage drop and that is called a "parasitic draw" which basically means that something is causing power to be lost. A good example is an alarm system that uses low power to run it but can cause a total power loss over time if not charged. Another might be caused by something just shorting to earth/grounding out.

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 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.

I have the SSC-1500A battery charger and the yellow light keeps flashing. The yellow light is the charging light.not sure why


This unit will assume a battery voltage less than 1.5 volts means the battery is sulfated. The flashing yellow light means it has gone into 'desulfate' pulse mode using pulses of high voltage to try and convert the lead sulfate back into sulfuric acid and lead plating. It will do this for about 8 hours on the charger I have. If the voltage has not raised to a level that can can accept a normal charge it will abort the pulse mode and stop trying to charge it. You will need to unplug and replug in the charger to try again. Always check the temperature of the battery while charging it and especially if the charger is in pulse mode. Stop charging if the battery is hot. *always wear safety gear*

What does F03 mean


F03 is an error code with two possible meanings.

1) battery plates are sulfated, meaning they have a buildup of lead sulfate on the battery plates. Try charging the battery using the "Recondition" button on your charger. If this does not correct the problem then it may be option 2:

2) Open cell in battery. Have battery tested at an auto parts store and be ready to buy a new battery. An open cell means the battery is no longer usable.
