Vectrix scooter

hello good day not really knowing where i should start with this but just bought a Vectrix scooter off of the auction 2 months back. When I got the bike home plugged it up to the wall outlet but I got no power to the bike to initialize charging. The bike look as if the previous owner had the bike apart and put back together various screws missing everywhere and looks as if it was fallen to the side. I really don't know where to start troubleshooting the symptoms any advice and is there a service manual wiring i can get my hands on to see?

Any advice would be appreciative.

sorry to hear you got a bad one

since there are screws missing

it could be that things are not plunged in on the inside
there is also a slim chance more could be wrong as that is why screws are missing

your first step would to be to take the bike casing off and look every thing over

I do not own one of those kinds of bikes so this all I can advise you to do

perhaps the battery is dead

I hope the prevision owner did not sell you a bike
ware one of the following or all of the following had died

motor
main computer
the charger

main computer cheap to get next to the changer
the motor for the E-bike I got cost $250 Can
and yours could be more

I know it's not a lot of info to start with but
perhaps if things are not connected that would solve the problem

Re: Vectrix scooter

Thanks a lot for the input its been of great assistance. What i did notice is that when i plugged in the power supply to the wall outlet all the lights blinked twice and shut off that was interesting maybe its in some sort of protect mode. Also noting the bike was a repossess bike from a auction,

the charger for my bike dose the red then the green when it gets plug in
so that's a start of good start

the hooks up for parts inside the bike for mine are
basically fool proof ever plug matches what it should connect too
so I would think that would be the same for all E-bike

checking all the connection cables is the first place to start

Hi Doulton and welcome to the forum!

You will get more replies relative to the VX-1 if you post it in this part of the forum: http://visforvoltage.org/forums/vectrix

In the meantime, have a look at the http://visforvoltage.org/forum/6737-vectrix-collaborative-handbook

Do you have an electronics background? This could be very tricky and dangerous, because anything could be wrong with your Vectrix. Sounds like someone failed repairing it and then put it back together just enough to auction it off....

Re: Vectrix scooter

thak you for your response i am a computer tech but not an elecrtical background my scooter tech who fixed my old scooter says that he deals with electric bikes before but never seen this model, he says if he could get some info on it maybe we can get it up and going perhaps a service manual or something the bike now is in the bahamas

Re: Vectrix scooter

I have a copy of the service manual,

PM me your email address and I can email it to you

btw - its highly likely your battery voltage is between 65v and 100v.

below 100v the original charger will not charge.

above 65v the bike will still power up.
