multiplus 1600/70 not charging properly

hello

I am trying to charge a 200 amp 12 volt lithium battery bank with 20% SOC and the multiplus does charge with no more than 25 amps and tapers off real quick.

on my victron connect software I have set the charge current to 50 amps.

also it went into absorption mode really quick.

when I change the lithium setting in the victron connect software to normal lead acid battery charging I am getting a red alert stating: high temperature alert.

does anyone have an idea what might be wrong??

Thanks for the answer

If the multi is switched to lithium charging the

Temperature compensation is switched off

This still leaves the question why the multi does not charge with full current.

A bad/lose connection somewhere? A defective temperature sensor (try to disconnect the sensor)?
