Is the amperage of my throttle output perhaps too low?
Last night I bench tested the setup with bare minimum: CA, throttle, HV-160, motor and one battery (6s1p, 5.8 AH). Worked perfectly.
Today I went to ride and it doesn't work. Everything lights up and I get the "turn on" beep from the HV-160 (but not the "throttle is connected" tweet noise). I rotate the throttle and see the CA is recognizing the input. Visual inspection of the connections - everything looks fine.
The only differences between the successful test last night and today are:
1) The bile was upside-down last night, right side up today
2) The battery. Today I'm using 8s1p, 5.0 AH. Could it be the lower AH rating (I think these batts have lower C rating too) that is causing my loss of function?
By the way, I'm getting +5v for the throttle from the throttle input pad in the CA, as shown in this picture. http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... 70#p573801
It was a marginal crimp that worked on the bench but not on the bike.
