"BATTERY HIGH" Message On Graph

5 posts in this topic

I have a Bottom Line Tournament 5100 graph and when I get to about 1/3 throttle on my motor it beeps for 3 seconds and displays the message "Battery High" and shuts off. Anyone know what my problem is?

Thanks, Roscoe

What is the make and model number of your outboard motor? Sounds like either the motor does not have voltage regulator or it is not working. The alternator is probably putting out too much voltage. Could be a bad battery or battery connections. Maybe start with making sure you have all battery connections clean and tight. Get battery load tested to verify it is working fine. If not the battery or connections you will have to look into your outboard and see what you can do.

Outboard is a 2000 Honda 50HP 4 stroke. Battery is brand new and connections are new. The graph works fine when the motor is idling or not running. The graph is wired thru the boat's electrical system so that the boat's power button controls power to the graph. I have been told that wiring the graph directly to the battery may solve the problem???

You might want to put a volt meter on your cranking battery and see what kind of voltage you are putting out when running at cruising speed. Voltage should only be around 13.5 volts or so. If you are reading around 16 you may have a regulator problem.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
