      The "lump" is a filter added by Solectria on the DC to the AH meter primary feed. Mine was chared but I replaced with a 1000 ohm 1/4 watt. The capacitor is 47 ufd . The resistor als acts as a fuse in this installation. There is a 100 ma (0.1) amp inside the AH controller box under the dash. If the resistor went, you may have a short. Open counter box and check circuit board under connecto;, very close foil pattern and have seen several short there as a result of moisture.

      Hope this helps.

      Subject: [solectria_ev] AH Counter

      My AH counter died a while back and I am just now trying to trouble shoot it. So far I have determined that the pack voltage isn't getting to the AH counter box. The voltage, however, is present on the car side of the 4 pin Deutch connector. I disconnected the deutch and pulled the box out. I noted that there was a big lump between the connector and the box screw terminals so I cut that open and found that the Red Pack Positive Wire was broken. With my bad eyesight I thought I should just fix the break, but as I got to working I noted that whatever was broken looked more like some kind of resistor or something. It has a blue dot on the top and isn't more than an eighth of an inch long.

      Does anyone know what it is (including its value/stats) and where to get a replacement.
