The Case of the Missing Battery Charge: Chapter 2

Tis still a puzzlement.

Yesterday's electrical engineer/mechanic retested the five new batteries and according to his tester one of the batteries was bad.

The theory he had was that while this battery was a part of the circuit it was draining the other good batteries of their charge in an attempt to stay charged itself.  Result:  five dead batteries and no one is happy.

Solution/test of hypothesis:  take the bad battery out of the cycle by bypassing it.  If the other four batteries hold their charge overnight (when they usually go flat) then we know we have found the problem.


When I got up at 6 this morning the battery power was almost flat and by 7 it was flat.  Another good hypothesis bites the dust.

The engineer/mechanic will be back around 11 and we will try again to solve THE CASE OF THE MISSING BATTERY CHARGE.
