Re: [solectria_ev] 120 v 1994 Geo Metro Charger Fan
- Pack Rat:
My 1992 Solectria 120 volt charger's fan is directly wired to the incoming 120 volts so it is always on.? My charger has a grill over the fan that can get bent and block the fan blade from rotating.? Check that the blade turns freely and if necessary, open up the charger and trace the fan wires to see if they connected directly to the incoming 120 or go through a switch of some kind.
I think you were wise to unplug it and check? first about the fan.

Just wired up the power to the 1994 Geo Metro .
The 120v charger is working but the fan did'nt come on.
I'm not sure if it has a temp sensor that kicks it
on or should it alway be on.
I unplugged the car so as not to fry anything.
The charger is labeled Solectria on it.
Happy New Year to All

Turns out the charger has a temp sensor. The fan kicked on by
itself after a while. Don't know what kind of charger it is yet. I
connected the DC-DC converter . The Amp meter works and the DOME light !!!
The batteries were charging strongly at 14-15v each. I got them to
go up from .1 v to 9 v. I don't think there are any amps behind the
voltage reading. I'm just trying to see if I can get anything out of
them to test the controller and motor. They are NF22 batteries from
Interstate and are rated at 12v - 55ah .
Frigid in New England !
