let me know,Tim
at the 12v battery
and the trinagle is on right now, when running?
ok, it sounds like the inverter/converter is going out, have you pulled the codes from the computer yet?
If the tringle is on, it will have a code,Tim
Yes, will need an OBDII code reader or scanner,Tim
give me a second to look up these codes,Tim
Ok, these code indicate problems with th regeneration system of the high voltage system, do you have a scanner
those wont work for diagnosing this, this is a High Voltage system, and can be dangerous to start probing around,Tim
the most common problem is the brake regeneration module is bad, but it will need to be verified to be sure,Tim
It might, but it will return,Tim
