WHAT'S IT SAY ON THE BLADE BINNACLE?

Post by Randall679 » Fri, 28 Dec 2018, 10:23

OK, Blade Masters ... I'd like to know what the information is on the Dash Binnacle of my 2008 Blade ... most of the information is evident ... total charge, etc ... but does someone know the other stuff? Is there a diagram available?

LCD DISPLAY
The “fuel gauge” in the
instrument cluster acts as a
battery charge indicator. If the vehicle is equipped with an
LCD display:
The “fuel” warning light (lower
left) comes on when you have
10-15km range remaining. If
this indicator lights up, reduce
speed and turn off heater and air
conditioner to maximise range.
WARNING!
When the gauge reads
empty, the batteries require
immediate charging. If you
need to leave the vehicle in
an uncharged state for an
extended period (more than
2 hours), push in a “Big Red
Button” (see p.7) to prevent
complete battery depletion.
In addition to the fuel gauge and
low fuel warning light, the upper
line of the LCD display gives
an estimate of range remaining
before battery depletion, as well
as the RDY indication that the
car is ready to drive.
The other indicators are:
H Bat - traction battery voltage
L Bat - 12V battery voltage
C - highest cell temperature (oC)
A - a bar graph which indicates
current drain on batteries, or
regeneration. Use this to reduce
drain on batteries, maximising
range.

Error code appears below the RDY and C ( temperature )
Error code: XX XX
Cell# Voltage
(below 2.5V)
WARNING!
If an error code is displayed,
stop driving and plug in for
a charge.
If the error code is still
displayed after a charge,
please call BEV for service.

Thank you, Chris! It all makes sense now.
