Weak regen mode (G4 and braking)

I'm having trouble with the regen braking and all generation levels (G1 to G4) on my PL-350. It started when I took my bike out in the rain. I commute to work and there's a steep hill about 1km after I leave home. I usually go down that hill in G4 mode or using the regen braking. This used to slow me down a lot but it doesn't anymore. The G-indicator on the console still goes way up but the braking effect is much less than before. I tried different code settings, increasing code #2002 to 64 but nothing changes. On that same day, I also used the Bionx Alarm system for the first time for about 8 hours. I bought this kit in the fall of 2010 and it has 600 kilometers. Any ideas why this is happening?

If the battery has a full charge the regen will not produce a strong braking effect.
Try unplugging the control console from the wiring harness for a minute, reconnect and
give it a try...

Thank you Jim. It started working well again once it dried up.

Ah yes, the old moisture in the mix problem. I to have experienced this problem which cleared up after drying.
Good Luck and happy riding...
