Hello, I have a 2000 Gem E825 that is currently having some issues charging. I live in Arizona where we are currently experiencing temperatures over 100 degrees daily. Up until it got hot, my Gem was charging and running great.
Currently, my car isn’t turning on at all. When I insert the key and turn it over there are no “clicks” or audible beeps. The display doesn’t show any #’s, and the horn, lights and wiper do not turn on. It stays in my garage, but the temperatures in there can climb over 90 degrees. I did double check that the kill switch was not engaged.
When I plug in my gem to charge the green light flashes with no beeps. It also doesn’t sound like the converter is running / charging. When I looked that up on the Zivan code list, it states the ambient temperature is too hot to charge. That certainly makes a lot of sense.
Am I needing to shelf my Gem during these extremely hot months or is there another thing I should be checking or doing?
