I've had a VX-1 "resting" in my garage for ages with failed temp sensors. I found out about the guys in Poland and got a new set of rear sensors. I managed to repair the front sensor set. While I had the battery packs apart I replaced a few cells which had failed with some used but acceptable cells and cycled all the others.
Put it all together again and turned the key! I got a normal startup but then it left the battery hot and battery fault red tell-tales on.
The only way I'm getting any further is if I can get hold of a gridconnect for a couple of weeks to track down the fault and load updated (Laird) firmware.
Anyone have one they could loan/rent/sell? Kindness will be rewarded! Really can't face shelling out for a new one.
