The Quantum timer has two wires that hook to the big battery. It has a small 'N' size battery that runs the timer (lasts two years) so it is a snap to hook up. They will fix it while you chat with the ladies there at Monarch for forty bucks.
My first Monarch was old and faded with a bad display on the timer. I was very impressed with the ladies once I got that raggedy old timer in their hands. It came out still faded but in perfect working condition with a new Quantum timer. I just bought a new Monarch box last week, complete with solar panel and rectangular spinner plate. It's much easier to change out the whole thing in the field and bring in old unit for repair. My old unit had dead battery so I suspect the TSC solar panel I rigged on it is now historical, so it goes to the ladies for repair.
Good luck on yours. I would strip all the extra stuff and start fresh.
Btw, remember the Christmas sale, 1/3 off! I plan to buy a feeder a year during the sale until I can't afford corn.
