Default Re: Has my speed sensor been discontinued??

(hopefully the picture uploaded cuz I'm at the campground) if so, I had to run the new cable around was. Or else I would have had to cut the new cable and put on a new copper end. The new pos neg cables were 2" longer than original. Those r the only factors that could make my charger not work like it did...

You bypassed the OBC so that is your problem. You can see the hole in your picture. The negative cable should go through that hole. If it doesn't fit, you need to get a metal stud and wire a cable to each side.

Yep - There's your problem - the cable MUST go thru it. You'll have to cut that new wire in half - and fit two new ends to it - then fabricate a stud that goes thru the hole (see: Scotty's page/instructions as to his offering) the diagram is at the very bottom of that "long" page. Or you can order a stud from him, I think.

For the time being - you can re-fit your old 6 ga. cable thru and hook it back up to get a good charge into your batts.

Until you go back thru that hole, your poor charger doesn't know which way is up - it gets all its charging information from the current that it measures passing thru that hole (in both directions...while draining batteries and while charging them).

OK, the reason I ran it around I stead of through was because the terminal end wouldn't fit so I figured going around was ok....? If that's wrong, is it ok just to cut the wire and use a butt connector?

Not the best option... Better to cut off the end and solder on a new one after feeding the wire through the OBC. You don't need fancy tools just a handheld propane torch a lug and solder... Many electrical supply houses sell solder slugs and/or lugs with solder already in them...

Yeah the OBC is a pain in the charging butt.... That's why many folks bypass them and get a smart charger...

Many use a metal threaded rod as a connection through the OBC rather than cutting your cable. You bolt a cable to each end of the bolt with the bolt going through the OBC.
