Got a thumb throttle with a matching wire plug to the Dahon, hooked it up, and no joy! What am I missing? Are there some controller codes I need to change? And where to find info on the controller? I've looked.
Progress of a sort!
Finally found a manual on line and looked into the controller codes. I poked around in the PAS codes but I could not see any effect because the motor would not turn no matter what I changed.
Then I noticed a statement in the manual about a Boost mode by holding the minus button for two seconds. The motor started and almost scooted the dike away from me. Hurrah! The motor works!!
So now, what? Makes me think that the controller is compromised some how. So I'm thinking that a new controller is needed. Anybody have an idea on how to find one?
Does the motor respond to throttle input? Make sure to move throttle all the way OFF, then back on. On my bike, if I turn on with throttle engaged, it will not respond unitl I do this.
On new controller, CAREFULLY examine all connector types and wires. 3 phase, 5 Halls, maybe a speedo or temp probe. Ebrake levers, throttle, pedelec, red and black to battery. Match voltage and amps. Get the display with the controller. Browse away.
I'm wander if it's a programming code problem. It Needs programmed. Also maybe the code that needs set, says nothing about throttle, but needs set. Also your controller says throttle adjustment voltage of 1.2v-4.4volts, is the throttle you ordered a 0-5volt throttle input.
1 other thing I thought about, does your controller have connectors for brake switches/hand levers? If it does & they are not hooked up, your throttle wont work I believe. Also if it has brake switches/lever switches, try holding both levers in while hitting your throttle.
If it dont have levers/brake switches, but have the connectors on your controller, make 2 jumper wires & jump both brake switches. Basically a loop of wire to connect them. Then try your throttle.
Also if you got lever/brake switches, try unplugging them & trying the throttle. Some controllers use normally open brake lever switches & some controllers use normally closed switches. I'm not sure what type if any is used on your bike.
