Roberto and I are waiting on this information to determine the State of Charge (SOC) so that we know where the batteries are, if there are problems, and if they are charged at any point. We don't know how balanced the pack is, and if we might do damage by doing anything to them.
I also looked at the EV specific fuse box, which runs some of the electronic systems and should also run the center touchscreen which we have been having problems with. All (4) the 15A automotive fuses were questionable, and I don't know why. The modes of failure were interesting too. I wish I had a photo of them. The first had melted plastic, but the filament was still intact.The second had a hole in the plastic melted around the filament, but the filament was still intact. The third was no longer conducting and was so brittle that the process of grabbing it and pulling on the plastic caused it to fall to pieces. The fourth's filament was broken. I'm still puzzled by what we found there.

A melted fuse itself might indicate that something is drawing not quite the rated capacity of the fuse, but close to it, causing the filament to heat up and melt the plastic before breaking the filament. Food for thought.
