    AMB 260 not fully charging

    Ive had an AMB 260, old style, transponder for several seasons now. I do my best to charge it every month and it usually holds a 4 day charge.

    The last 2 times I have charged it the light will only blink green 3 times. I think the battery might be going bad. Some of the battery replacement instructions I've seen online are a little harsh.

    Anyone have a good DIY link or instructions rather than sending this thing off to get someone else to do it?

    I sent mine out to a guy in San Antonio. He fixed it for $45(mention you're a CMRA racer). Worth it!

    Mueller toys I think it's called...

    Im not having any luck locating that business on google maps under Mueller Toys near San Antonio. If you have an address or link handy i will keep them in mind if I can't find a way to do this myself.

    Brandon - In some thread on here Nancy posted a way to bring your AMB back from near death. Maybe the same procedure can bring yours back to full charging capacity. I did it to mine and worked perfectly, haven't had an issue in the year or two since I did it.

    I've been following this. I will give it a couple more shots to see what it does.
