Temp Sensor Code

Hi,
I am getting a temp sensor error code, 3 sec on 3 sec off.
I measured the voltage at the temp sensor and at the regulator. It is 2.98 vdc at the sensor and 2.97 at the regulator. 0 vdc on the negative side, both places.
Temp here is about 75 degrees F
What should I check next?
Can the regulator be used without the temp sensor?
Thanks

Forgot to mention it is a SAR v3 about 2 months old.

That sounds like an internal error. You can use the regulator without the sensor, but that may not be the best for the batteries. It would be better to get a replacement unit.

I assume the unit is under warranty. Can you send me a new unit so I can change it wire for wire and send the old unit back to you? If so do you still have my address and info?
The unit serial number is K14140002.
Can I disconnect the temp sensor for the trip home to test ?

You don't need to disconnect the sensor.

Send your address, etc to ruth at you know where and she will handle the warranty.
