I'll add to everyone else's posts, that before you charge your batteries, check each one individually with a DMM. You may have one (or more) that are bad. Here's a chart to help with specific gravity and state of charge (soc).

OK charger never went past 3 amps. I checked the fuse at the bypass and it is good. I put fuse back in and now I have nothing again. Charger won't turn on.

You only did a partial OBC by-pass, specifically the charger relay activation circuit.

I would try an OBC reset as apparently the older software version of the OBC was prone to locking up. You can just follow the procedure on the stickie.

If that does not help, you can run a 10 gauge cable directly from the charger socket negative pin directly to the pack negative. That in addition to the previous "sense wire" by-pass will completely by-pass the OBC charging control.

Keep in mind that there will be nothing to stop the batteries from overcharging when the by-pass is in place, so keep a DVM handy and disconnect the charger once the package voltage gets up to 60v.

How did the voltages of your batteries come out? All it takes to down the whole battery pack, is one dead cell in one battery.

OK my question is what is the problem gonna be if the jumper wire works? Is it the OBC ? Do I replace it or can I just do without it and make it work?
