Fuse melting...but not blowing on Power Wheels

I've got a old Gaucho Power Wheels from the early 90's ish. Originally it was powered by a 12v battery with a on/off switch pedal and high range, low range and reverse. I've kept the gear selector with high/low/reverse...and added a 1000watt 48/60v ebike controller and a 0-5v 'gas pedal'. It's now b...

Any way to verify AH on a battery?

Is there a way to verify AH on a battery purchased from Amazon? I'm looking at this bad boy...48v 24.5AH!!!! Upgrade from my 48v 11AH unit. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08X2F2DC7/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A1DQ8CBGDI0TLE&psc=1 I'm not looking to increase speed, rather reliability. So choosi...

Re: Upgrade old battery or get new one?

Also found this guy...slightly more AH, but a few bucks less? I don't imagine it's as good as the ebike.ca unit...if anyone can give advice would be appreciated :-)

Re: Upgrade old battery or get new one?

Thank you! Found this one to be my closest choice on the ebike.ca site. My wife is not going to be happy with me lol. It's over $1000...but I suppose the AH is improved from my 11.6 up to 16.5. Is this the going rate for a good battery now-a-days? https://ebikes.ca/shop/electric-bicycle-parts/batter...

Re: Upgrade old battery or get new one?

Ok. Its a BBS02...so I think that as long as it has a BMS in it, should be good?

Where does one buy bike batteries now-a-days? Any good Canadian dealers that I can be pointed to?

Anyone know what happened to Lectric Cycle?

Thanks!

BBSHD PAS set to 1 when turning on...disable?

I'm able to program by BBSHD but what I can not seem to change is the default PAS level to 0. I've had a few BBS02/HD motors in my time, and I recall most having PAS start at 0. For some reason, my BBSHD PAS is default to 1 what is a PITA if you are not expecting it. Each time I ride it I have to re...

Thanks amberwolf, Is there companies that can repair them? I tested with another screen, and the bike worked...so it if it were the cable, it would be the short 6" cable between the screen and the plug going to the controller. I'm not sure the odds of broken wires, I really didn't pull that har...

BBS DCP14 Full Color Screen dead??

I was using my BBSHD with DCP14 full color screen for a quick spin. Shut it off...then tried to turn it back on and it would not power back up. I though "aw crap, I fried the controller" or something. Luckily I had a older model C965 screen on another bike I was able to hook up to my BBSHD...

Cool. Thanks guys. The mongoose is 20” wheels what is perfect...but the price. Plus it’s missing a panel and the charger does not work. Aka the batteries are probably toast too.

Re: Throttle without PAS BBS02

No PAS Level uses PAS 0 from the controller; PAS 1 uses PAS 2 from the controller; PAS 2 uses PAS 4 from the controller; PAS 3 uses PAS 6 from the controller; PAS 4 uses PAS 8 from the controller, and; PAS 5 uses PAS 9 from the controller. This is golden and what I was looking for :). I’ll test it ...

Re: Throttle without PAS BBS02

From Karl Gessleins oft consulted blog, I believe you change the level for assist level 1. Your pics show it at 0. I set Assist for level 1 to zero, in that if I went to PAS1, it would not give any PAS but let me freely use the throttle. At least in logic this is what I thought it would do. What I ...

This seems a little different than my issue... My throttle works fine in PAS, just I’m not able to rig a pas where with zero assist so I can have a throttle only mode What I don’t get is why the changes made while connected to controller ST app, don’t really apply. How is that possible and what’s th...

Power Tool Batteries in a Series

I've been using my powertool batteries (Rigid 18V) to power an ebike. Been working great. The BMS in the battery acts as the LVC and everything seems to be great. The power tools themselves only use the positive and negative terminal, meaning the balancing must be coming from the battery BMS...not t...

Re: 12v lithium battery type (with photos)

Thanks guys. Good info.

Just curious...if the wall wart charger is gone, can I charge it via the power leads (+&-)? I can set my hobby RC charger to less than 1 amp charge rate.
