Hello everyone. Thank you all for your priceless contribution.
I know it's been a while since the last post in this thread but I just got a lime s sz2,5 from a scrap yard and I want to try make it work. I read all 131 pages but as newbie I have some questions.
1. How can I check if the battery or the motor are alive before I do any modification? Because I don't know for how long this scooter was idle, so I think to check it first and then try to modify it. So, is there any way to check the condition of the battery? Should I first remove the green box and all the wires? And then how can I check if the battery works?
2. As I read in previous posts the generic controller does not support brakes. So, how do you stop? Does the brake in the left hand work or not? I didn't quite understand that part.
3. How do you charge the battery after installing the generic controller? Please explain this part to me.

The green box is still on. Haven't touch anything.
I would be grateful if someone could help me.
Thank you.

Looks like the ES4 has some new way of wiring that doesn’t fit the motherboard you purchased. So it definitely won’t be plug and play. But I’m sure a new clip can be added
Yes in deed, I did found an abandoned Lime, looks like a ES2, don't have a external battery just a GPS module in front and this is the motherboard that I found.

1. Charging port
2. This is connected through the tube to the lower part of the scooter
3. Dashboard connection
4. Connection to battery
5. Goes down through the tube to the lower part of scooter passing by a long rail just in front of battery.
6. To battery
7. That cable was unplugged. I assume to connect directly to a kind of programing interface.
8. That cable goes to GPS module, I assume one of them brings the signal to the motherboard to turn on the scooter.

And this is the GPS module

Just opened

As you can see the circuit on the left holds the SIM card

Pink arrow cable comes from motherboard.

Yellow cable it's the connection between that circuit and the big circuit to the left that holds the SIM card. I assume the white or the orange cable says to other circuit turn on the scooter.

The red arrow cable it's unplugged cable that I found in the back of module. I assume for programing.

So now I ask.

There's any way to replace the motherboard of this model? It's very different than the original one.

Or just run a jumper wires from one side to the other two complete connectivity and omit the SIM card entirely?
Hello there....
Finaly you find whitch wires must be jumper ????
