1015914 - Heatsink Assembly.

It's a small diode strip mounted in the back of the charger. One or both of the diodes on this strip has shorted and is causing your failure.

Isn't there a way to disconnect this to test ? I know it won't charge but at least it will tell you if that is what has fried.. Not that I question the Dawg..

Take all of the wires off of the heatsink. Put multimeter on diode test function. Put red lead on the middle and check the two outer posts by touching black to them. Then switch and put the black lead in the middle and check the outer posts with the red wire. You should get .500, .500, and Nothing, Nothing. If you get full continuity in any of these tests the diode has failed.

No. The installation is pretty straightforward. Just remove the old one and install the new one the same way. Be sure to apply the thermal paste behind it.
