So my 12s4p Hurricane battery stopped charging….
The battery is still in the voltage range where it should be, how could I determine where the problem is?
I already checked the charger and everything else and it seems to be working, sadly…
I was hoping that the battery had no damage.

One more observation I made, when I plug in my makerx esc into the battery, it also doesn’t turn on.

See this post, maybe something similar…?
Greetings, over a week ago an electronic component on my hurricane has been fried, ive contacted support and they have mailed parts but in the event that they dont get here i was wondering if someone could assist and identify the part and inform me if its proprietary or if i could just purchase it from somewhere else. I appreciate any help.

Yes I had the same problem, switched out the charging module with a new one meepo sent me.
It’s still not charging with that
If the xt60 has no voltage coming out, it’s possible that the bms is at fault

You mean the one on the battery?
It is showing an voltage of 38
so battery alone is 38v, but when u plug in the esc, esc doesn’t turn on? any chance u can measure if there is any voltage going into the esc?

Yes that’s exactly true.
How would I measure that?
i would say to probe the V+ and GND terminal on the esc, but u will need to open the esc and also iirc the positive and negative terminal of the DV6 is on different side of the pcb. it could be very risky to perform

Okey I think I’m to scared to do this… yet.
Do you think there is some hope for the battery as long as it’s not under a certain voltage ?
38v in 12s, so each pgroup is around 3.1v, its not the best voltage to sit on, but for short period its fine

It should be a bms problem if the battery outputs 38V, my charger 51V and it still not charges right?

Thanks for the help, I really need a solution for this.
yes, it does sounds like bms problem, but electronics are weird, it may not entirely bms’s problem.
have u contact meepo about this?

Yes but they are kinda ignoring my mails since 2 weeks
bring it up on facebook group or reddit, there might be others with similar issues, which can grab meepo’s attention.
Replace the bms after measuring the balance connector
