There is an internal 5 amp fuse! It is in series with the charge port. I would take it apart and see if that is what the issue is. If you accidentally short out the the charge jack (easy enough to do or if yo use a strong charger) it will smoke that.Hey Lost,
I have a Radrover battery that fails to charge; but, it discharges normally. The battery thinks it is fully charged and doesn't take any juice from the wall charger (the second wall charger light stays green). Even the battery indicator light on the side of the battery pack shows full bars all the time. I can only see the battery charge level when I turn on the RR LCD screen. The external fuse on the battery pack is not blown.
The battery was replaced under warranty by RR and I now have a 7 lb paper weight in my garage. Is there any internal fuse, circuit board problem, or wiring that you saw with your battery cover exchange that might explain the problem? It would be nice to fix the battery for a spare.
