My second Vectrix, a 2008 unit, died yesterday. Fuse melt, a 125A!
Before 2009, all vectrix had installed a 125A fuse, which melts under normal riding conditions.
Around 2009 vectrix started to install the 200A Fuse upgrade.
I,m posting pictures of that damaged fuse, completely sliced:
Replacing the fuse in NIMH vectrix requires some hard job: first you have to pull out the rear block of the battery, and then dismantle the metal box surrounding the Motor-controller.
It is time to build up a DIY solution, in order to make easier that fuse replacement:
This is the Vectrix's original 200A fuse upgrade:
I have a spare, new 200A one if you are looking for one... don't know where you are tho... PM me if you are interested. MW

Martin, thank you for your offer.
Fortunately I keep an eye on internet and I've bought the electrical system of some vectrixs at bargain price.
I'm sure somebody will need you replacement, thanks for sharing.
