That is great, JJ! Thanks a ton. Now I know for sure what I actually have. No more educated guessing. But check this out ....

While further dismantling and inspecting, reading, finding the BMS board... I realize that I think I did my voltage test wrong two months ago, when I gave it up for lost. I did not have the key! So I go find the key, turn the switch on and this...

AFTER ONE FIREWORKS DISPLAY OF SPARKS and then nearly 2 years of sitting without charging the pack is down about 1 volt from full charge. I would say that it is a pretty good sign. Now I just gotta put it together safely and solder on a replacement charging connection (I burned the other one).

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
