Moose Z1100 Battery failure

I have a Moose Z1100. my low battery light is blinking. I changed the battery and when it does a self check the low battery light blinks. I checked the transformer terminals on the panel and I get 16v. I checked the red and black wire coming off the panel and i get no reading. I checked the 4 fuses with my meter and all are good. any help would be appreciated. Thank You

Try powering down and back on.
Especially on a system this old, the charger can shut down if the battery fails deeply, and a reboot will (usually) resolve it.

If this is a Z1100e, there is an internal fuse that will make the power light blink if it opens. Don't remember if this is true on the original Z1100 or the Z1100 System II.

Either F3 or F4 opening will make it do this. There is a little hidden "foil fuse" that _could- be the problem, but it's not easy to find or replace.

Try the command 7 which forces a battery test,

Given the age, a charger failure isn't impossible.

I did the command 7

It did the battery test and power light started blinking. I’m getting 16v at the panel. But nothing at the red and black battery leads

At this point, based on the available information, your battery charging circuit has failed. 24+ years was a good run.
