!!!!The controller does not have 12 volts!!!.
You need to buy and use a 48V - 96V to 12V converter,
Like the one from the link

The controller needs connection to B+ (full battery voltage) to the correct wire to turn on. see pic.
or rotate the start key to the start position.

i am no expert on serial communication so i can only guess:
Are you sure controller is ON? (Not always remembered)
Is ch340 driver updated and have you tested that it works with other serial communication than the controller?

I have only used PL2303 adapter which is the adapter supplied by QS motor. It’s not that expensive so i’d try an adapter like this if you cannot get the ch340 that you have to work.

Good luck.

I used a Cp2102 (typical for Arduinos) connect TX and RX respectively, the negative one took it directly from the negative of the controller because the negative of the connector did not work for me ... as the diagram is shown

Anything other than the recommended (PL2303) and windows 7-10, you will need to solve for yourself by using the well-known trial / error method.

In the standard case, he will definitely find help here

I want some more help.
How the motor responds to the specified parameters for undervoltage(V) 61V and soft 64V

What exactly happens at 61 Volts and at 64 Volts soft

Normally regeneration is connected to the brakes. It is high-level and has a green cable at the 8th output of the plug.
I do not know where it is activated and how it is set up.
do you have no regeneration function? It comes with the brake applied.

These are the settings of my engine. I don't know if the snapshot parameter below is enabled for you
I wonder if it's possible to change the settings so low brake/side stand instead activates regen.
I don't think it needs to be high brake to activate it, i guess the logic can be changed if PB4 is changed from "side_sustain" (side stand?) to "low_brake".

I tried it. doesn't work, can't be sure if it's my controller and program as it is older than yours. I checked the files and wiring diagrams you had gotten - they all connect 12V to brake switch to high_brake/purple wire so i will try this.

should be possible to get regen to work with low brake - if only the program makers had handled program versions and revisions in a clear way.
Now there are several program variants that have different parts of the code unfunctional. I think playing too much with ports settings might brick the controller.

According to the manual it should work to just select "low brake" for the regen signal but nooooo.. not in my controller - it sets the low brake signal constantly which stops the function.

Solution: I gave up on low brake for regen and connected 12V DC-DC to high brake through the rear brake switch, set regen to 100% and tested, instant lock-up of the wheel no matter what speed i was driving. :wink:
Lowered to 20%, will try it tomorrow to see how high the regen current is.
