You need to take the fobs and the bike to your dealership and have them matched together with Digital Technician.

Batteries fully charged ok,turn ignition on,no lights,no power to wheel,but pressing the horn it only sounds weak,will not light led lights on lamp.had control box tested and was ok,new ignition switch...

the faults you are describing do match flat or faulty batteries more than anything else.

check that the connections are good on the batteries and that the battery pack connects properly.
i think it would be worth you testing the charger and the batteries to make sure they are working properly. i would not change any other parts until these have been checked.

if the bike was stored in a garage or shed during the winter it is possible that the batteries inside the battery pack may have been damaged by the cold.

if you send make and model and age of the bike i can send you far more detailed testing proceedures, but i would need the details, as battery types and voltages vary from bike to bike.

1982 YAMAHA SECA 750 It does not want start unless there is a battery charger hooked up to the battery its like it needs high voltage to start once running it will restart if not parked to long

It sounds like a battery problem. Do you have a meter to check the voltage of the battery? If not, bring it to a parts store, most offer free checks or auto batteries, I'm sure they will test yours, as they usually also sell bike batteries.

Ebike in need of more power by adding batteries..

A 250W electric motor will only pull about 5.1 amps at 48V. The lead acid batteries that come with the bike are more than capable of 5A of output without dropping voltage. Therefore, wiring a second pack in parallel will not do anything to increase the available torque or power from the motor. All it will do is increase the time/distance you can ride the bike on a single charge.

Also, you should take care that wiring lead acid batteries in parallel is not always safe, especially if you are wiring newer batteries in parallel with older batteries. A common failure mode is for one of the cells (there are several in each battery) to short circuit. For a series-wired pack, this only decreases the voltage, but if you have two packs in parallel, you'll end up with one pack having a lower voltage than the other, and it will draw tremendous current out of the other pack, possibly causing an explosion and great bodily harm.

If the performance changed suddenly after hitting a bump, then you probably broke something in the hub. If the motor has multiple windings, it's possible one of them became disconnected from the power source. This would decrease the available torque and power. I would look into having it repaired.

Be careful, and ride safely.

The battery backup side of the APC does not work how can I fix this?

How old is unit? UPS is a Battery that is charged from power outlet.It maintains voltage when computers are plug into it so fluctuations in current don't spike or wane.On a Power Failure the UPS supplies all the power by using the battery and an inverter.If your units batteries are not charging you need to replace them.In most cases it is not cost effective.Do some more test before you replace it.Good Luck.

Leaking battery

Yuasa batteries are expensive but with good reason. They are extremely high quality and follow the old adage 'you get what you pay for'.
Cheap batteries appear initial good 'value' but the extra investment will pay dividends long-term, if properly maintained, your Yuasa will last many years.

If you suspect the liquid is acid, neutralize it with some baking soda just to be sure. You don't want that dripping onto anything metal or pain, causing damage.
Once you have it neutralized, wash it out with water.

It sounds like you ride infrequently and bike may have periods of serveral weeks on occasion without being ridden.

My recommendation would be to install a quality replacement (like the OEM Yuasa) then purchase a battery maintainer that you can plug in while bike is not being used. Good maintainers are Optimate and Battery Tender. (I have both myself - I really like the Optimate 4.) Both of these come with a waterproof 'pigtail' harness that you can permanently connect to the battery - then when you put the bike away, you can simply connect up to it without having to remove anything.

Hope this is helpful.

Good Luck!!

The tension on the recumbent exercise bike does not get hard

If your bike has magnetic resistance and you changed the batteries this should make your tension work properly. Since it did not I believe that there are magnets somewhere on your bike that are wearing out. Or it could be a computer part. Your manual should tell what part you need to order and replace. I hope this information has been helpful.

Also make sure the batteries that you put in your bike are really new ones. Sometimes you can purchase new batteries at a store and they are actually a little weak. I had this problem with an elyptical trainer and I went and got other batteries and this fixed the problem.

Electronics malfunctioning on stationary bike

Something is obviously wrong with the electronics, and unless you find an electronics hobbyist who is willing and able to fix it you would need a new unit. To find out whether a replacement is available contact Bollinger (which apparently no longer makes exercise bikes):

The tension adjustment does not get difficult enough

If you are refering to a regular bicycle this means the derailer is not making the chain jump from gear to gear. You probably need a new shifter cable or the shifter cable came unhooked from the derailer. I would take your bike to a bike shop to have this reconnected and then they will adjust it for you.

If you are refering to an exercise bike then here may be your solution. From what I have seen on exercise bikes there are three different kind of bikes. I am refering to how there resistance works.

First type has a strap that wraps around the wheel. There is a some kind of a nut and a bolt that holds that strap around the wheel. You simply need to tighten that nut. The strap will stretch over time and that is why you do not have the same resisteace you had when the bike was new. Afer you tighten this you will find that regular tensioner works better.

The Second type of exercise bike has what appears to be brake pads contacting the wheel. Basically your peddaling the bike with the brakes on. Pretty simple concept. Again there should be some sort of adjustment around this pad that is touching the wheel. Probably a screw or a bolt. Some even have adjusters that you can turn with your fingers.

The new and improved exercise bikes have what is called magnetic resistance. This is where your resitance is created by a magnet and some sort of power source such as batteries or your bike being plugged into a wall outlet. If you are using batteries replace them. I found that with my elyptical exerciser new batteries made a world of difference in the resistance settings. If changing the batteries doesn't help then there may be another problem. This could be the computer. Just check your user manual and I am sure you can get it replaced.
