BMV712 temperature sensor and status not working

I got a temperature sensor on my BMV712, but no matter what I try in settings, it shows nothing like it's not connected.

I got another one from the store to see if it maybe broken but that one gave the same result.

Other issue.....after a little while BMV712 shows load drops to 0% in a couple hours after charging, but the 4x 12V220Ah agm's are fully loaded.( New batteries)

Can it be a broken print on the shunt or is the BMV itself broken?

Everything else seems to be working fine...

Hi Marc,

It's a new install,

Where can I get specs on what it should read with a multimeter?

hi, with electronics things i always do a test on bench before to fixe it.. now all is fixed but you can to confirm with a cheap digital multimeter (voltage, ohms and continuity check) your setup.. that look a wiring problem or connection missing (if not the shunt or bvm).. if your problems have started with your temp sensor added, go to check it first.. have you only add the temp sensor without to change/move anything other??
