Bionx battery charging problem

Postby Sgj » Fri Mar 25, 2016 9:52 am

I am currently having a problem with charging my Bionx 360 HT L battery.

In Short:

Battery purchased approx Aug 2012
2000 km done on it
I rode the bike recently and battery was nearly to zero
Left overnight not on charge
I put it on charge the next morning but noticed that 24 hours later it hadn't charged.
There is no light visible on the charger. Nothing red, green or amber
Battery is beeping approx every 1/2 hour
G2 Console still turns on. No error codes.
Voltage checked via diag mode is 36.8 to 37 V
Suspecting a deep discharge problem, I tried 'battery recovery' by lifting the back wheel off the ground and turned the cranks whilst having the charger connected and console off. I did this for 5 mins and the battery began beeping approx every two minutes. But still no light on the charger.

Any ideas? Severely depleted battery? Dud charger?
I'm based in Toowoomba so the nearest retailer is 99 Bikes in Bris a Fortitude Valley.

How can you help me with this?

No light on the charger when connecting power sounds like a dead charger. Check if charger has a fuse.
Give your post info to BionX support via 99bikes and Francais direct., and Glowwormbicycles have likely dealt with old kits.

Thanks. Sydney Electric Bikes dealer confirms he same. It's the charger. $150 new (ouch) to replace. Anyone have an old one that they no longer use and wish to sell?
