ps. Because you are taking interest in how to overcome temp issue than I assume that your motor has no temp sensor installed, or white wire is not coming out of the motor.
Answer to your pm message.
Yes, my Sabvoton works without issue. I have installed it in my scooter. It does not blink as yours. When I power my scooter on, controllers RED led stays constantly ON. I don't get any green LED blinking whatsoever.
There two controller leds. One is GREEN and another RED.
If it's all good than RED led stays ON all the time.
I've added resistor as a workaround because my hub motor has no temp sensor installed.
There are other ways but I did following way. Resistor maybe be connected like this:
one end of resistor connects to GND (black wire from hall wires from motor ),
other resistor end connects to temp wire (white wire which comes from Savoton).
Rest 5 hall wires connects as ussual. Nothing is different when you connect white temp wire to black wire. Other wires has to be connected in ussual way. Red to red, black to black. green to green, blue to blue, yellow to yellow.
After connecting resistor you will see Sabvoton app to show temperature other than -150C. Resistor can be 900omhs but other omhs might work too. Try to get something around 1000omhs, or you can use few resistors with less omhs connecting them parallel, for examply you can use two 400omhs or 500omhs resistors, maybe even one resistor might work. Don't know if less omhs resistor will make sabvoton to think that there is less or more heat nevertheless 900omhs or 1000omhs resistor will work for sure.
After adding resistor you can see in Sabvoton app (in motor temperature field) that temperature is not -150C any more. If you still see -150C than don't bother checking anything else ie.: it means that you did not connect resistor properly and you controller will keep giving you 5 GREEN blinks which indicate that motor is in over temperature state and controller protection is in place and it won't sping motor unless this error gone.
If you don't want to mess around with you connector (coming out of motor with five thin wires) connecting resistor to black hall GND wire than you can connect so some other GND wire in your system. You know.. ground is ground, just don't plug it accidently to some positive wire ie.: 5v 12v, or even battery volatge etc.. Most importantly connect one resistor end to white wire and than take GND from wherever you prefer in your EV.
If you think that you don't have needed resistor(s) than scavenge your broken electrical equipment. If you don't see any digits on it than just measure omhs with your tester (amp/volt meter).
*grey color represents white wire in my sketch because white on white is not enough contrast.
