I am having a problem with my Next Step Regulator, serial # 114711
I was having runaway voltage, I disconnected the field at the regulator just so I wouldn't fry the batteries, got busy and went back to double check things today. Now there is no charge, I don't see any blown fuses.
I have checked the alternator and it is working properly
Both the other day and today I have both red and green blinking lights.
The red light blinks on and off continuously, on for 1 second and then off for 1 second.
The green light blinks on and off continuously but not as quickly.
I have video taped the lights, they can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPDtwOYem1A
I am pretty sure the regulator is not working properly. Can you tell me what my options are? I thought I saw somewhere that there is a trade in allowance? Will the newer version plug into what I already have? How much does the upgrade cost?
How much to repair this unit and how long?
