    I have a steca pr1010 solar regulator i have a error code of E07 which according to my manual means battery voltage to low.

    I checked my two leisure batteries and found that the water level was to low so i topped them up and recharged them with the onboard charger as per the manual instructions.

    I have tried to reset the lcd display but keeps coming back to error code E07.

    On my motorhome control panel it says leisure battery at 14.1v

    Anybody any ideas how to fix this problem

    Thanks

    Not got that sort of regulator so I'm guessing here...


    Have you tried disconnecting everything from the regulator and reconnecting in the right order?

    Hi Billy
    I have just had a look at the tech sheet for that controler and it dont give much away does it:Doh:
    I would suggest in effect a re boot by disconecting the batteries and the solar panels at the same time then re install after a few minuets
    If that fails run through the self test and see what happens
    If all else fails check wiring/conections
