Something that Current did not emphasize enough in the Owners Manual given to most "test pilots" is the proper procedure for powering the scooter back up after storage or other occasion for turning both the circuit breaker and the "winter" switch off.
The proper power up procedure is as follows:
1. FIRST switch on the WINTER switch,
2. WAIT at least 5 seconds,
3 THEN switch the circuit breaker on.
This procedure must be followed to avoid potentially damaging inrush currents into the discharged capacitors in the controller. The "winter" switch pre-charges the controller via a 2.7K resistor and a separate small wire to the positive power connection.
Note that this procedure is only needed if BOTH the winter switch and circuit breaker is turned off. If one of the other is left on, you are fine.
