    How can I determine if a battery tender for 488 Spider is working correctly?

    Welcome! :D

    As you've begun with a technical question, I've moved your thread to the 488 model area where you'll probably get more targeted assistance. Good luck!

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    The light turns from amber to green.

    Hi Klinkman - Thanks for the reply. Currently, I plug it in and hit reset button, I get solid green. Then I attach to the car and after one minute I get flashing green. No amber at all.

    Sounds like car battery is fully charged.
    The flashing is the connecting/communicating part. It should turn solid after a short time.
    If you want to check it, disconnect your car from charger for 24-48 hrs. It should be amber when you plug it back in.
