Default Bumble Bee 8.0 amp battery

Hi, I have a question for you guys. I have a IMA that was purchased from Bumble bee about 4.5 years ago. It kept on giving me codes, so I did the IMA bypass. I was wondering if it would be better to try to sell the battery pack as a whole or take it apart and just sell the sticks, if you think people would want to buy them or it. I'm sure most of the sticks have to be ok. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

David

Yes I did try charging and discharging it. It was actually working fine, then one day I was driving it and hit a huge pothole. After that it went down hill fast. I知 guessing something happen to one of the sticks or something. I was thinking about doing a stick by stick charging thing, but I知 really not comfortable with that. So, I guess I値l list it as the whole battery in the classified section and see how it goes.

Thanks

Could it possibly be some electronic control unit was damaged/disconnected? You are close enough to Scott to make a visit there easy and practical. At least that is what I would do. YMMV.

I agree. I would check your ground wires. Loose/broken ground wires will cause some weird IMA issues.
