Could anyone help diagnose my soliton's issue?

Very interesting Vortex, the weight of my vehicle is 1.240 ton from original 1.2 ton, the weight factor seems to be a common factor that is fearly close to SOLITON JR 1.3 ton upper limit if you consider having passengers and some extra load like shopping the weight is definitely pushing the Solitons...

Could anyone help diagnose my soliton's issue?

Great news even though shipping is not cheap! It still feels like a false win as it should have never happened. I personally would not buy a SOLITON JUNIOR again for any conversion because there are a lot of cheaper options for smaller conversions, as it is not a fully tested device for long term us...

Could anyone help diagnose my soliton's issue?

Very interesting Vortex, i suspected there must be others struggling with The Soliton JR, it appears to be a legitimate concearn, i wonder how heavy your vehicle is and type of driving have youve done, hill,flat combination of the two, average take off slow normal or fast, average daily temperatures...

Could anyone help diagnose my soliton's issue?

Sorry to hear the bad news Sam , I know how you feel, I have just gone through the same thing for the second time, first time after 3 months of use the unit packed up but it was one month after warranty, since it took time to build the car and I bought the unit earlier so I could have it for planing...

Could anyone help diagnose my soliton's issue?

I don't agree Richo. The Soliton has a setting for minimum expected NO LOAD battery pack voltage. The manual says if it's 10V under this then the contactors will not close. If there were 13 Leads at 11.5 volts then that's 149.5 volts. 149.5 is 45 times 3.32. LiFePO4 will not be no load that high ev...

Could anyone help diagnose my soliton's issue?

What are your minimum voltage settings UNDER NO LOAD in the software settings? This could be your problem since you have dropped your battery pack voltage from a higher 156v lead acid to 144v lithium. If you havent changed your minimum voltage setting under no load it might be set to a higher voltag...

Could anyone help diagnose my soliton's issue?

Good idea to run through a separate relay but I don't think that is your problem especially since the unit was ok on previous battery pack.

Could anyone help diagnose my soliton's issue?

I have a Soliton JR with a lithium 144v bat pack with 12v - 55A dc/dc converter. I have set my minimum voltage under load to 90v and minimum voltage without a load to 110v this could be your problem, check these settings and make sure they are set to a lower value than your battery pack, my pack ful...
