    If you have no lights on that battery you better call Minn Kota. You could switch wires with another but there is not even a condition in the manual that shows no leds . Bob

    Ok, I've read troubleshooting, this thread, and everything else I can find. I don't ever get home in time to call Minn Kota, but I'm going to try if I can't get an explanation here.

    MK210D, new, 2 new Interstate batteries. Batteries read 13.0V with charger off, both banks read 14.3+/- with charger on. Tested all fuses, connections, ohmed out leads from fuse block to terminal. Everything checks out good and batteries work fine.

    When plugged in Bank 2 works as expected. Yellow, then yellow flashing, then green. All is good.

    Bank 1 when you first plug in flashes yellow, and red stays lit. I checked polarity, water, standing voltage. I also swapped batteries with leads, stayed on Bank 1. Weird thing to me is that it has a red light, but is still charging the battery like everything is fine. From what I read in troubleshooting, bank 1 should shut down with a red LED lit.

    I'm thinking something wrong out of the box with this unit, but I'll listen to your advice on this. Thanks for your help and what you do for this board.

    Rechecked this morning. The green lights on both banks flashing indicating maintenance mode, but Bank 1 still has the red light on. Constant, not blinking if I did not clarify that before.

    Called minn kota support. They have never heard of this and are sending me a new charger.

    My minn Kota 4 bank charger has a yellow and a green light on for all 4 banks- before it was plugged in! They would not go off until I pulled each fuse.
    anyone ever had that happen?

    3.5 year old 460PC. Banks 2-4 have worked flawlessly since day one. Bank 1 has given me multiple issues but because it's not consistent Minn Kota told me they didn't believe me while it was still in warranty.

    Now bank 1 is still showing a single yellow light (indicating its charging) after 3 hours. When testing the voltage it only shows 11.45v, same as what the battery reads with charger disconnected. Swapped leads, 2 over to 1 and lead 2 charges battery 1 fine. I don't want to try the other way, 1 over to 2 because I think the charger has ruined an Odyssey 2150 and don't want to ruin another $450 battery. It appears bank 1 is now completely shot.

    It has melted 1 30amp fuse without popping the fuse somehow which leads me to want to cut the fuse holders off and test it but I've checked continuity through them and they appear fine.

    Any ideas or is the $400 less then 4 year old charger gone? Thanks
