Electrical Guru Question--Battery Tender Plus issues....
Ok, on my 2002 Camaro, I don't drive it all that often. I have the Optima red top, about 2 months old. Clean connections (still look new). To keep the battery topped up, I got a Battery Tender Plus, so it's only a couple of months old as well. Up until a few days ago, it's been working great.
So, the other day, I unplug charger, then take the car out for a drive. When I get back, I plug the charger back up. This is where things get weird.
Red and green lights on charger, says red should come on steady and green may be off for a little bit, then it should come on indicating full charge. Red flashing means it isn't hooked up properly according to the trouble shooting guide.
Now, no matter if it's hooked up or not, when I plug it into the wall, the red light flashes and the green light is always steady on. Always. No matter what as long as AC power is applied.
I've checked the in line fuse, it's good. I've checked voltage out put at 22 volts. I've checked voltage across battery when hooked up, >14.5 volts.
I'm worried something's wrong, but this isn't covered in any troubleshooting guide.
Any ideas? Anyone else have this issue? TIA.
