    Shearwater Predator does not read all three cells

    Before I go and pester Curt, has anyone else experienced the following?

    Today during our dive on decent my Predator all of a sudden started displaying "Voting Failed" and it showed all three cells as zero including millivolts. This is a hardwired Predator with the latest revs on it. Back on the boat I noticed that all three cells would read 0 then all of a sudden they would read correctly without me touching anything. I did check the cable and it appears to be okay, I even moved it around a bit to see if maybe there was a loose connection somewhere but no dice.

    I did try resetting and pulling the battery but still no change.

    rEvo is all you need!!!!

    Did you also check the connection to the cells or only the cable? ( I guess you did but you never know)

    I just did and it seems that I have a bad connection near the cells, might have to send it back to Curt after all for a new cable.

    Check if the splitter is the problem (by looking at your dreams - if you have those). Sometimes it is not the cell or the computer but the splitter. Although, I never had all 3 go out on me! I don't know how you have yours set-up.

    Splitters are easily replaced and would save you having to ship the unit.

    Not using any splitters, 3 cells go directly to the Predator and the 2 Dreams have a cell each, again no splitters on those. Wish it was that simple :)

    If you find that you can make and break the connection where the cell wires come out of the main cable then it is probably the common ground wire at that point causing all 3 cells to fault.

    You can cut open the heat shrink tubing on the end of the cable to find the problem, then fix it if you are handy with a soldering iron or send it to me.

    All cells share a common ground wire. Probably that ground wire is broken. Seems to be a fairly common issue. Curt will handle it
