Thank you for the replies you posted for my issue: I am totally out of warranties and am considering initializing the BMS using an older version of the ISTA+
I have no idea how to do this, is there a youtube video or a DYI site you recommend that would highlight the steps to take and also where to download the software from?
I've never used ISTA+, but I downloaded it in 2018 in case I needed to use it. I am uploading it to my Mega.nz account so that I can provide a download link to you. The download link is https://mega.nz/folder/iwUUlTTR#ZFtJJNFHWSYrPfcJENvILg
. It is huge at over 14 GB, so your download could take ~2 hours.
Most of the files are compressed, so when installed, ISTA+ would require even more space. I don't have a Windows laptop, so I have never installed it. I don't use Windows, so I couldn't provide any installation assistance.
In the "ISTA+ 4.10 folder" is an "Instructions" folder containing an ISTA+ guide and 2 files that describe the battery initialization process. I think that I could perform the initialization successfully following the instructions in these files.
Although I addressed this message to gmoggo, anyone who wants the older ISTA+ version that apparently supports BMS initialization could download it using my Mega.nz link. However, I can't guarantee that this link will remain valid, so grab it while you can.
