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.

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.

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.

Vec 1097 A battery charger always give cod F03 with any battery


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 does a fault signify?


I hate this about automatic electronic battery chargers; they shut down when the battery isn't perfect. The battery may have an internal short or the specific density of the electrolyte may be high or low. The plates may be sulfated as well. An old-fashioned non-electronic charger would have charged it anyway.

Is battery included?


The 12 volt battery required is sold separate. You will have to remove the battery for charging...charger not included, It is possible to have the battery wired in such a way that it can re-charge from the alternator of the main engine.

My Vector Vec157 Flashlight won't Charge...


It is the battery, I have a similiar Vector light for a few years and tried re-charging the battery but only the little LED light would come on. I have another Vector light, same model and switched batteries from the worjking one to the non-working one and now it works fine.

I then proceeded to purchase a new battery for the non'working one and when I arrived home I installed it and turned on the main light, still won't turn on, I tried the LED's, they work. I figured maybe the new battery needs a good charge so I plugged the charger in and charged the light for 12 hours, still no main light.

I guess the new battery is defective, so now I will return it and exchange it for another one.
