      The LED’s on the bottom row are lit and you can change charging mode. None of the LED’s in the top row, indicating charging status, are lit.

      Explanation: The battery voltage could be under 2 +/- 0.5V.
      Test: Test the charger on a fresh battery.
      is flashing   ×
      If no battery or if the battery voltage is too low the led will start to flash to indicate the unit has entered power save mode.
      Test: Test the charger on a fresh battery.
      No LED is lit when the charger is connected only to the power outlet   ×
      Explanation: One of the LED’s at the lower row should light up when the charger is connected to the power outlet.

      I have a CTEK charger. It used to work well, but now nothing happens when I press the mode button. I can't change between the "MC", "CAR” and "SNOWFLAKE” modes. What can I do?   ×
      If you can't change the charging mode by pressing the mode button regardless of which battery you are trying to charge, the charger is probably faulty. If you still have the warranty, I recommend you go to your dealer with the charger, the receipt and a completed warranty claim form.

      Test: Turn off or disconnect the loads when charging.

      Explanation 3: The charger is not connected to a 12V battery.
      Test: Test with a fresh 12V battery.

      Explanation 4: The charge cycle is interrupted in step 1.
      Test: Test to restart the charge cycle, if it still fails in step 1 the battery is sulphated and needs to be replaced.

      Explanation 5: The charge cycle is interrupted in step 4.
      Test: Test to restart the charge cycle, if it still fails in step 4 the battery is can’t be charged and needs to be replaced.
