Hello guys, I recently converted a Bird One 590 to a personal scooter using the samzone method of replacing the controller with a 350W generic controller.
I am able to spin the wheel freely and engage to higher speeds. But when I ride the scooter, the scooter tends to turn off and stays turned off until I reconnect the battery.
Sometimes I'm able to ride it a bit in my backyard, but other times it will just shut off. Especially when I try to run it slightly uphill in my street. I've tried to lift up the scooter, engage the throttle and shake it vigorously to ensure no loose connections, but it seems that that works fine.
The battery has apart from the 2 main power wires, 4 more (signal?) wires, who are now disconnected. Do they need to remain that way?
I feel like the controller or battery goes into over-current protection.
Is this a classic symptom of requiring a BMS bypass or is my controller faulty/insufficient?
