Hi Diego,

I suggest that you return it to the dealer for warranty claim, repair or replacement. In the mean time please tell us how you determine it was "short circuit".

Regards,

Language or translation is imperfect but if you're saying a spark connecting battery to B- on the Curtis controller, that could be normal if you didn't go through the proper start up sequence allowing a precharge of the controller capacitors. A single event (spark) may not have damaged the Curtis. I suggest that you read and follow the manual exactly. If there is a problem, an error code should appear.
