Sunsaver 10 error code

So my Sunsaver 10l Solar Controller is giving me an error code. Iíve had my Lifeline AGM battery plugged into a smart charger all winter like I always do. This is the first time Iíve had error codes with this in the 8 years Iíve had it. Itís sequencing between red & green then yellow. According to the manual it means 3 things. Itís either ďexternal wiring error, load over current, or load short circuitĒ. But I donít know what that all means. What should I check first? Thanks in advance.

IMO,
load over current might represent batteries that are too low, and trying to draw more than your controller can put out
load short circuit could mean a short in the wires going to the battery, or a battery that has failed
external wiring error-??? did you change anything when you set it up for the winter?

I would disconnect from everything and check battery voltage, if low manual charge, if ok, reconnect solar and see if error goes away check all wiring for loose,burnt connections

We had the same problem on our Sunsaver controller a couple of summers ago. It was simply a loose connection on one of the fuses.

Thanks. I changed all the fuses, and didnít notice anything weird. But maybe I missed something. Iíll poke around again.
