Put an Odessey 680 on it & forget about it.

The fault light has started flashing when the engine is running, indicating an unbalanced cell according to the manual. When I put it on the optimiser the light goes out and the battery seems fine.... until I start the engine and then it comes on again.

I'm troubleshooting with EarthX (who are giving me excellent customer service), but my two year warranty is up in three weeks so I am anxious to work this out quickly. We're going to check the whether the battery is still holding a charge (my panel indicates 13.1V fully charged but it needs to be 13.28V at the terminals), and if the light keeps coming on, probably a cell went bad.
