So, checking each battery by pressing the battery button on top each battery will show a solid green light at 0-10%. One battery has the same indication but the light flashes.
Maybe this battery is bad? Since they are all connected maybe this one battery has a brain issue? My system said it was an excessive discharge. I am assuming the one battery is taking out the other batteries?
I may be misunderstanding part of your post. I read about those particular batteries and the button on the top is pressed and released, followed by one of five possible lights illuminating, indicating state of charge. Continued pressing of the button until the light goes out will reset the battery.
You state the light is for 0-10%, and one battery only blinks at that level. Unless I am misunderstanding, all the batteries are near depletion, with one possibly bad. They appear not to be getting adequate charge. If one is bad, it will draw down the others and lion batteries tend to shut off immediately rather than gradually fade out like flooded cells. My guess is this is what you are experiencing.
