Can anyone shed some light on my Alltrax and 3 wire china e-scooter throttle. I have everything wired up correctly per Alltrax diagram, and have a solid green light on ignition. But I can't get any of the 3 throttles I have to do anything. The Alltrax wiring diagram shows 4 wires, the magura/alltrax diagram shows using 2 of the 3 wires, but nothing has worked so far. My wires are red, white, and black. I've tried powering the red one and the AXE 7234 blinks green at me, I've tried all combos using only 2 of the three wires amongst the #2 and#3 spot. I've tried 3 throttles, and rewired everything, what next?! any help would be great. Thanks. I'm so close.

That almost sounds like the brake lever switch is sticking. Try disconnecting that connector and see if your throttles work. (for test purposes only, dont ride it with a bad brake-inhibit switch)

Well, I figured out part of the problem. The throttle I was hooking up was a hall sensor throttle. To get that to work, I'd have to dc to dc convert 48v to 5v and send only 5 to the hall sensor throttle. So instead, I installed a simple 0-5k ohm potentiometer, which is what alltrax called for, I get green led on ignition, and amber led on wide open throttle, but no power in the motor, nothing is spinning. I'm still stumped. Any suggestions?

Had same problem on a used controller. Was testing to see if it would work and was using 24v. After a lot of frustration discovered that it was programmed to switch off at 36v. After reprogramming it worked fine.
