As many of us have experienced, sometimes the EVD gets in a "low power mode". The solution is just to stop and turn the bike off/on. This has always fixed this problem for me. However not any more. It is permanently stuck in this "low power mode". I replaced the batteries 8 months ago and it has worked fine up until now. That is to say, the off/on trick continued to work when it occasionally got into this mode. But now it is stuck in this mode.
What could the problem be?
Here's what I've tried so far:
- made sure the scooter was fully charged
- replaced the circuit breaker under the seat
- checked the pack voltage, which looked fine (it read 64 volts; I have the VRLA EVD which is 60 volt)
Here's what I'm thinking of trying next (in order):
- replace the throttle
- replace the hub motor
