    So my battery temperature reached the 130F from driving only 25 miles in 90F weather and one of the members told me it can be missing the black air blocker but mine was present on the left side of the battery pack and I don't believe there isn't one to begin with on the right side. I was hoping that was the issue so I know why my battery fan isn't cooling my battery pack even though I did clean the fan and clean out fan and fan speed showed 5 out of 6 on Torque Pro so the wiring isn't messed up. Any other idea?
    P.S. The first pic with the red circle indicator is not my battery pack. I just posted it so you guys know what black strip or air blocker I was talking about and please confirm they are only supposed to be on the left side and not on the right thanks

    Ok thanks. And while I have the battery pack opened, anything I should check on to make sure battery is ok? Corrosion? common broken parts? etc I only have a basic multi-meter somewhere in the garage, would that be good enough to check the volts?

    Yes that would be fine, just check all the bus bars for corrosion and test all the modules anything in the 6 volt range is trash.
