If the battery cells have been tested and found to be OK then check:
1, the battery fuse and connections in the battery
2, the battery on/off switch and connections
3, the battery connections to the controller
If all of those check OK then it could be you have a fault in your controller (or the auxiliary battery output that runs things like headlight) that is causing the controller or BMS in the battery to trip.

SOURCE: I have two protanium batteries

Well, I think the answer is in the question...

Either the charger is bad, or the batteries are. Have someone qualified check the charger voltage.

Replace whichever is bad.

SOURCE: My e bike packed in

hi.
sounds like the motor or controller has overheated and shut down to protect itself.
this is not uncommon up long/steep hills.

there are usually thermal protection fuses built in to the motor and controller that will shut down if the unit gets too hot.
when the unit cools down again, the fuse should reset itself.

if it doesn't, and if no other fuses or breakers have tripped, then you may have to get the bike checked at the suppliers as there may have been some damage done.

i have had fuses take overnight to reset themselves, but if it is going to reset itself it should do it within about 12hours.

hope this helps

Testimonial: " While this hasn't solved the problem, it has incresed my knowledge as I didn't know that the motor and controller had thermal fuses. many thanks "

Intermittent no crank problem with 2004 pt cruiser


When you turn the key and it doesn't start, what happens? Do any of the dash warning lights come on? Does the engine turn over but not start?
1. If the dash lights DO come on every time, but the engine doesn't turn over every time, it's probably not a problem with the switch. Might be a bad starter relay.
2. If the dash lights DON'T come on every time, then it could be the switch (electrical contacts only working sometime). First, try spraying WD-40 or electrical contact cleaner into the lock area to see if that helps. If it doesn't, then you probably need a switch. Do a search for "ignition switch 2004 PT Cruiser" and you'll probably find what you need, including instructions. Be sure to disconnect battery before replacing the switch and follow precautions against activating airbag accidentally.

Change battery in Stratoliner


You didnt say if it is a cruiser or street so here is both:
  1. Cruiser
    • 1 Remove the seat from your motorcycle. Turn the key to the "On" position and hold it there as you lift up on the seat to unlock it.
    • 2 Put on the gloves and the safety glasses. Remove the plastic cover on the battery compartment.
    • 3 Detach the cables connected to the terminals on the top of the battery. You can pull the cables off by hand. Remove the negative (black) cable first, then the positive (red) cable. Cover the negative battery terminal with black electrical tape.
    • 4 Lift the battery out of the compartment. Be sure not to touch the terminals to any metal components of the frame or the seat.
    • 5 Position the new battery. Connect the positive cable to the battery first, then the negative cable.
    • 6 Reattach the seat.
    Street Bike
    • 1 Lift or remove the seat on your bike. Use the ignition key to unlock the mechanism holding the seat in place. Depending on the model, tilt the seat back or lift it completely off the bike.
    • 2 Locate the two anchor bolts on either side of the gas tank. Unscrew the bolts using an Allen wrench. Hold on to both the bolts and the bushings on the underside of the bolts. The bushings prevent your gas tank from rattling during operation.
    • 3 Tilt your gas tank up to reveal the battery compartment. It is necessary to prop up the gas tank or have a helper hold it for you as you work on the battery.
    • 4 Detach the cables connected to the battery terminals. Remove the negative (black) cable first, then the positive (red) cable. Cover the negative battery terminal with black electrical tape.
    • 5 Lift the battery out of the bike, being careful not to touch the terminals to any part of the motorcycle or your skin.
    • 6 Position the new battery in the bike. Connect the positive cable to the battery first, then the negative cable.
    • 7 Reposition the gas tank and secure it by tightening the bolts.
    • 8 Close or reattach the seat

1994 Kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan won't turn over


Hi, Cas_erchamio before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

I have a victory V92C. The year is 2000 and I have a starting problem. If I let the bike sit for 6 or 7 days the battery dies. Victory shop put new battery in and something else and it was fixed. Rode it...


there is a starter relay box attached to the battery frame on the left side of the bike. Make sure the connections are solid otherwise your battery may be fully charged and your lights will be on but you wont transfer the power from your battery to your starter.

It's your stator failing, these bikes are notorious for bad stators. A failing stator means the bike can't produce the electricity it needs to run, and the bike is running on the battery only. Replace the stator and make sure your battery is fully charged and you will be good to go.

No power on my Kymco Zing 125


your best try is to contact your dealer, and get them to order you the short red wire that runs from the + terminal on the battery, to the starter soleniod ( also has a thin red wire that runs to fuse holder) i had exactly the same problem and this solved it. i have however re done all the electrical connections on my bike using 7amp wire and bullet connectors, as i have had many faults with the electrics before.
My bike is a Kymco Cruiser 125 (almost exactly the same bike, i use kymco zing parts when replacing) i paid approx £16 GBP for the wire.
