going off at a tangent for a moment, there is something radically wrong here.
The control box (CB) is setup to cut the motor when the voltage drops to less than 10.5 volts. This is to protect the battery.
In another post you reported that the motors was cutting out, if your battery has only 7 volts the motor should not work at all.
It looks like the op-amp (an integrated circuit in the CB), or part of the op-amp external circuitry, is not operating correctly.
If the battery is down to 7 volts when fully charged you can consider it the be dead. If you had a lack of capacity something could be done, but this is not the case.
Are your LEDs in the pod working correctly? If you are not sure how they work have a look in the 'RESOURCES/Original Documents' section of the forum, there you will find a copy of the 'Owners Handbook'. There you will find a description of the pod operation.
