I bought a used E-bike. It's a Ezee (EVG ) for $150.00 . Probably about 3 years old. The seller told me it needs a new battery and was otherwise "dead". I noticed that when you turned the "ON" switch, the lights on the bike would momentarily flash and then immediately go "dead" again.
Otherwise, there was no sign of life at all. No lights, no horn, no motor, no bat reserve lights.....nothing.
I bought the bike, took it home and put it on the charger. It fully charged-up in about 4 hours (to 42 volts). It's still "dead" though.
So I bought a new lead-acid battery at "Batteries-Plus" (for $130.00). Nothing changed.....The bike refused to come alive.
The bike came here from Florida and had minor traces of surface rust. Otherwise there is no visible damage or faults.
I have not yet begun to tear into it (I have no wiring diagram or trouble-shooting guides). No dealers or repair shops here-abouts either.
Can anybody out there help me get this E-bike back on the road?
A separate issue would be slight traces of metallic copper powder around the 2 battery spring-loaded pair of connectors. I vaguely recall a forum posting somewhere some time ago that identified battery movement and bouncing about as a correctable problem. Now that I actually have an Ezee E-bike, I cannot find anything about solving that separate problem. Can anybody steer me to forum/discussion of that problem?
