The Elan She Dead!


Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

So after starting 1st every time since I got her I went to drop her over to Rick today to put into storage and battery completely dead 0.7volts. She was fine last week and I have left her for 2 weeks before no problem. So she is on CTEK and we will see what happens. 9347841D-2801-452D-A2F9-77422FC34D2B.thumb.jpeg.fe3bc24b0b60a675efbf93a6963702b4.jpeg

My wife would have changed her own battery.

Make sure the boot light is not staying on when the boot is shut. Also the 2 courtesy lights on the rear view mirror can stay on if the headlight switch is not pushed right in .

Dan - Shan will be along with a technical solution in due course, once she’s finished necking this gin & tonic.

Good call, thanks for that, I think the battery is buggered though I will keep charging it though and live in hope. I reckon you right I cleaned it last weekend and I bet I have switched something on and not noticed

Trevor it’s definitely won’t be that as I take the front off not for security but because I don’t know how to turn it off and I can’t see the buttons

All of the above used to kill the batteries on both our M100's. The alarm did it after 2 weeks and the display on the rear view mirror could knock it out in one.

Dan she's a gonner, it's tough I know but to speed your journey through the five stages of loss I'll pop over and haul her away. That's how much I care. Don't go checking for things left on, your only making it worse. 

what's this talk of storage? Summer's only in!

Now I don’t know this as a fact but apparently 2no built and the other one written off. It does look spectacular in the sun, at the moment it is drive artwork. Friday is new battery and a multimeter

Yeah, but that's just a couple of C cells.
