"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.

    • By only hot bathing them for 10 minutes max it seems to work! I've heard of the above methods but never did them.
    •   I took the blades back off then buffed them clean with a dremel, oiled them, and touched them up with a lazer hand sharpener.  Not sure if a guy can exchange since they aren't flat.   Added some pics so you can see the curve in them. I think they must be a "jet" blade.  
    • Can't wait to see.....  
    • Grape leaves are said to also help.  
    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
