Sounds German, like Audi for some reason.the main 12v battery on the other has developed an internal short and because it's a hybrid it takes a special AGM battery mounted in the back of the car oh and yes, you do need a more expensive scan tool to reset the battery management computer so it doesn't fry the new one, and to top that off the battery is totally out of stock locally and had to be ordered online and arrives on thursday and holy run on sentence Batman that was a mouthful).
Japaneese, actually. We picked up a used Lexus ct200h a few years ago for almost nothing considering that it was in practically mint condition; and this battery issue is the first problem we've had with it (I don't really blame Lexus - lead acid batteries can go bad all by themselves, if it develops a short between the plates; and unlike a regular car where the engine is always turning the alternator, you really do need a deep-discharge battery). It's just the timing of it couldn't be worse.Sounds German, like Audi for some reason.
Very sorry to hear it. I sent you a PM just now with an offer to help, if you're interested.The bad news is that everything else in my life has gone sideways all of a sudden, and I'm starting to wonder if I'm in a handbasket and where it's headed, if you know what I mean. This might delay production & mailing.
Thanks, this is good information to disseminate, but that's so strange. Which version of the pickit do you have?Further to the above: it definitely looks like my issues were to do with using the TL866 II. Programming with the pickit seems to be resulting in a working chip (at least from peering at it on the scope). UART up next...
