Possible Remedies
(1) It is too dark outside for the solar panels to
produce power or the solar panel(s) are in the
shade. (2) Check for loose, broken or corroded
connections in the solar panel cable. (3) Check
fuses/breakers.
(1) Check for loose, broken or corroded
connections in the cables between the charge
controller and battery bank. (2) Check
fuses/breakers. (3) Verify battery voltage is
sufficient to power up the charge controller.
Check the voltage of the battery bank. The
battery bank is most likely fully charged and the
solar charge controller has disconnected the
solar panels from the battery. The solar charge
controller will reconnect the solar panels to the
battery bank when it once again requires
charging.
