With voltmeter , check the battery voltage at the base and battery pack. Then check the voltage at the basket , where the battery light is. Is battery voltage same. If not , wire harness has bad connection or damaged wires. Check the wires from basket, to the lower connection points and see if there is a corroded terminal , search why the voltage is lost.

I can eliminate the cable going to the basket by plugging the control panel directly at the base unit. But there is no change in the low battery warning.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
What is the battery voltage with meter test.
Ask Your Own Industrial Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
12V

With test meter?

Yes with my multimeter
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It is actualy 12.7 when the motor is running.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
Fully charged 12 volt battery should be over 13 volts. With 12 volts, battery is very low. Does it drop if you use any function?

With control plugged in at the bottom, what is voltage inside the panel?
Ask Your Own Industrial Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It won't let any operation happen with a low battery warning. Even though the main controls show a full charge on the battery
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Where would I take that voltage reading at the panel?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
I agree, that's why you need to check the voltage at the idiot light.
Ask Your Own Industrial Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It only takes 5V to turn the idiot light on.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
And what is the voltage??
Ask Your Own Industrial Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Because the light is flashing there is a pulse of 5V
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
Follow the wire back and find where the voltage has dropped.
Ask Your Own Industrial Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It is a multi level circuit board. There is no way for me to trace it.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
Try unplugging the circuit bards and reinstalling them, the next choice is to buy new boards!
