    Took my battery out last night fully charged it and now the fuses keep pooping. I think in a rush I put the terminals on the battery the wrong way round

    You may also have melted the positive and negative wires together in the cable and this is causing a short and blowing the fuse

    I spoke to pure freedom and Andrew thinks that I've blown a resistor in the flow controller that's blowing the fuses

    The important question is, when they are popping, are they also locking?

    if the flow control is knackered, it shouldnt blow a fuse, assume the fuse in on the poz from the battery
