    What volts should I be getting and across which wires?

    That is far too low. The BMS or the charger (most likely the BMS!), will not allow charging from a normal charger for safety reasons when the battery is too low. You need to keep it around 35 volts during long periods on non usage. There are special recovery chargers around, but a bit "thin on...

    Battery fuse blowing

    Using a fuse so large can turn the wiring into the next fuse! You do not want to burn the harness..... Andy

    Battery fuse blowing

    IMHO you have probably made a reasonable purchase, and others here have given some good advice already that hopefully will get you eventually up and running. Regarding the fuse, buy a new one (or two), but also buy some of lower ampage, say between 5 - 10 amps, if possible, just to use while...

    motor/controller issue.

    I understand your worries on that point, as Chinese firms are not always using the same wire colours, or the same connectors either, but the connectors are all available on ebay. Furthermore, I am sure that someone here can help you better than I can, once you have identified where your own bike...

    Keep quiet, don't tell my wife!

    You also missed the point, I have no need to use such words as you and a few others here do quite freely describing others. And if anyone posts back to you, after you start name calling, but with a different opinion, you/they have the gall to be rude again. Apparently, Mummy and Daddy did a...

    Keep quiet, don't tell my wife!

    I am a strong believer in telling the truth and shaming the devil. I get embarrassed by a German company that treats its customers so badly. If this Bosch problem information is of no interest to you, simply prise your eyes away from it and avoid reading it! Problem fixed! Reading the German...

    motor/controller issue.

    Some people buy and e-bike tester, which are available on ebay for under 10 UK Pounds. Get one with the "circle" of LEDs display, as shown on the first video. Some only have a "line of LEDs", which make understanding of the motor action less easy to follow I feel.... It tests the outputs of the...

    How do your store your e-bike?

    Storing without the battery installed, will make it much lighter. Probably light enough to use non e-bike wall racks... Also, having the battery not on the bike means you can keep an eye on the charge level more easily. Very, very important! Andy

    Cyclematic Battery Problem

    Sounds like a discharged battery, Li-ion possibly. And the BMS is trying to prevent further discharge from damaging the battery cells. Have you checked both the battery voltage and the charger output voltage, but as you did not mention the nominal battery voltage, I cannot give you exact values...

    Keep quiet, don't tell my wife!

    You are mixing me up with someone else possibly. I did not suggest a conversion, I simply showed that it was a lot cheaper IF NEEDED, to get a broken hub motor bike working again, and not beyond the knowledge that many average bikers possess. The electronics knowledge needed to get the parts...

    Keep quiet, don't tell my wife!

    I disagree on basically all points. So my answer is no to most of your questions. Calling it "derailing a thread", because you did not know about certain information, is disingenuous at best! But do have a great weekend, and remember, you being on an open forum, with many members, you cannot...

    Not an e-bike! And the axles appear to have survived, as did the rider, thankfully!! The bike almost broke into 2 pieces....

    Keep quiet, don't tell my wife!

    I thought that it was patently obvious what my actions were. Therefore I was assuming, maybe wrongly, that you had a better idea/action.... But apparently not! Talk about going round in circles.....

    Keep quiet, don't tell my wife!

    I personally have never heard of an axle breaking, and I am sure someone, somewhere could break the rear axle of a Bosch bike as well.....that is not an argument for the high prices and poor service that Bosch is known for. I ride on forest tracks daily, good and bad ones, through hills that a...

    Keep quiet, don't tell my wife!

    You should read more on this site, and this topic, someone else found that out! Someone I am MOST grateful to! remember its the number of Bosch problems online, against problems of ALL Hub motors online. Pretty damning! And it therefore rather proves my thoughts on the subject completely...

    ....and leaving you in ignorance of what REALLY happens? I see that as the unfriendly way, that many people do use, (not me) so they can say something like:- " well you should do your research before buying!" My way (I did it:)) you still can make a choice, but whatever you do, you are well...

    Keep quiet, don't tell my wife!

    That is a huge difference in numbers, that is a ratio of over 23:1 . And when one takes into account that there are no cheap Bosch bikes, that is an overwhelming ly huge difference, which in itself, tells it "how it is!" The more expensive the bike, the lower the total number sold in general...

    IYou seem to think that is a problem, let me say, its not. You can open them up easily and repair most failues on hub motors. Tell me how you handle a Bosch mid motor that is defective and the guarantee has long run out, and a defective rear hub where the guarantee has long run out? big BUCKS is...

    Primarily German e-bike websites. Do you read and understand German, if yes, search around on the wen using something like "Bosch e-bike probleme". Here is what I found, in bothe English and German:- https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=Bosch+e-bike+probleme Have a good read, and...
