Question about Electric Bicycle Motor, Bike,electric Bicycles ,kits

2 Answers

I have a GIANT LA FREE SPORT ELECTRIC BIKE. THE BRAKE CABLES HAVE BEEN PULLED OUT AND THE MOTOR WONT TURN ON. THE BATTERY IS CHARGED AND THE LIGHTS GO ON. WHERE CAN I GET BRAKE CABLES OR BRAKE SWITCHES? DO THE BRAKE CABLES HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE MOTOR TURNING ON? DOES THIS SOUND LIKE A SIMPLE PROBLEM THAT ANY BIKE REPAIR SHOP CAN FIX? I CANT FIND ANY ELEC BIKE REPAIR SHOPS OR ANY ONE WHO KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT THE BIKE I HAVE, IT IS DISCONTINUED, BUT IT IS REALY A NICE BIKE AND I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY SUGGESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. THANKS.

The brake handles have each have a switch button that must be pressed for the motor to work. (Actually what happens is that when you pull the break lever it unpresses the button so the motor won't work against the brakes). Just tape the switch down for the time being. Electric Bikes Northwest and David Hawkins might be able to help you with bike parts. I've gotten some parts from him for my La Free Sport. Very few bike shops know anything about these bikes. Good Luck! Dennis

Spark plugs


If the lights won't even come on, the spark plugs are not the cause of that problem.

Make sure the battery cables at the opposite ends from the battery are connected tight and corrosion free.
Check that all the fuses are good.
For some reason the power isn't getting from the battery (if it is in fact charged up) to the electrical circuit (blown fuse, loose/disconnected wire, etc).

Bike wont start, something with the Battery circuit or battery, we can push start the bike so the bike does run, I charged the battery and had the battery tested and it tests out fine, when I put in bike...


From your description, it sounds like a bad starter motor. That is provided all of the cables going from battery to relay, and relay to starter are not corroded or have poor connections. The relay is a weak point, so it may be damaged as well if the starter has been pulling too many amps.

No power after battery change


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check 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 if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Pontoon wont start.The starter is good the cylonoid is good.the starter will come up and start to turn the flywheel and stop.I can hear the starter whine.but wont turn over.I have charged the new battery.


I have worked on many outboard motors. Since your motor almost starts, do these things:

1. install new spark plugs unless you are certain that the ones u are using are good.
2. Add a product called seafoam to the gas tank. Check to be sure but I recall that you add one ounce per gallon [this stuff is great].
3. At any auto parts store get a can of electrical connection spray. Spray all of your contact points.
4. Also get a can of starter fluid. Give the air intake a couple of short blasts and start the motor. if it runs real rough continue with the startere fluid until it runs smoothly.
5. Be sure that your battery cables are corrosion free where they slide over the battery terminals and that the connections are tight.

Enjoy your boat ride.

I have a 84 mustang xl. I think that the problem is electrical but im not sure. The battery has a charge, but it wont turn over, and i dont even have lights, my car wont start what could the problem be?


Could be a broken or disconnected battery cable. If you are sure that the battery has a full charge, and the battery is connected properly (tight clean connection at the terminals) and the lights do not go on (including the brake lights when you step on the brakes) then there is a bad connection at the battery/terminal/cable for certain.
