Hoping someone can point me in the right direction with the issue I'm having with my 2008 VX-1 Ni-MH.
My Vectrix is kept in a fairly insulated and ventilated garage. I've not been out riding for a few months since I had the MOT renewed. Every few weeks, my routine is to switch on to check the voltage and recharge if necessary and test all the switchgear and blip the throttle on the centre stand. This weekend I checked the voltage using the kill switch and left brake lever which was around 136V. I got a temperature reading of 60°C a few seconds after booting up and then the 'bathot' message and flashing red icon which I've not had before.
I've seen 60°C on the display some years ago but managed to sort that just by switching off and on again so presumably just a software bug. I know the battery isn't hot because it not been discharged in use or recharged for a numbers of weeks. I did attempt to recharge yesterday but after less than a minute it stopped, the display went off but the fans kept running. After that I unplugged it and repeated the same today, but got the same result. The ambient temperature over the weekend in my garage has been around 8-10°C.

My issues sounds similar to the one mentioned in this thread from 2013. In early 2015 I had some work done due a thermal incident with one of the temperature sensors (as detailed on another thread here) so both temperature sensors and wiring along with the charger have been replaced already at a cost of over £700 for parts and labour. I was told at the time that the sensors were an improved version compared to the original ones.
Bit reluctant to spend any more money on it as I don't get the use, but still love it after over 9 years of ownership and don't want to part with it. Any cheap or simple fix suggestions appreciated. Would a hard reset that I've read about do anything? Does that involve unplugging the connection underneath at the front?
