"problem 7

most likely causes"


Can also be caused by loose / corroded battery terminals.

Perhaps a setup similar to stone racings post but on the causes eg. afm you click on afm and it goes to a flowchart to test it or a window's help type setup eg.
put multimeter on the end terminal's.

does it read 386 ohm's ?
yes no

set to 386 ohm's, did this fix the problem ?
yes no

Just create a new thread and if it is good enough it will be approved.

What is happening with this? How long until it runs like a Wiki for real? Still ironing out the bugs?

And no one pays attention to this section of the forum. Use the search function, it's been covered many times.
