The problem I have with the V3 is that the indicator lights both red and green dont work,, the yellow light is on . The reg seems to be working ok.
Also I have "Absorbed Power "AGM batteries, which switch arrangement should I be using ?

Generally when the LEDs on the regulator don't work, but the regulator does, it means the LED drivers are blown up. That can happen when remote indicators are connected to the unit that are not appropriate.

Use the Lifeline AGM setting on the switches.

Thank you for the promt reply regarding the led lights not working, I went and double checked the wiring and noted that the Alternator ground and the Ground wires have been linked together. In your manual it clearly states not to do this. What problems will this cause and could it be the reason the led indicator lightsare not functioning properly
