Um...it would help if you gave us some details about your electric bike. What model, pictures, etc.

I bought 2 electric bikes last fall. A Bionx and Ecospeed. Both of them have been a pain to keep running. The ecospeed may turn to a total loss. Nobody to work on it and it keeps burning up controllers. The Bionx bike needs continued fiddling with the brake handle to keep the regen working. I know I would never have purchased the Ecospeed had I known. The Bionx bike is fun to ride but a source of aggravation.

re BIONX
It is nice edrive , excellent exercise machine, which clearly stands out from other edrives.
I own one for workouts.
Take apart your BIONX break handle and determine what must be replaced, contact BIONX dealer what to buy.
When I look at my BIONX kit break levers I see solid engineering, no flimsy stuff.

Re-Bionx re-gen switch, it can be touchy to set up because you don't really want the brakes to come on, so you got's to find the sweet spot. Took me about 10 try's but once set up properly I haven't had to adjust it for 2 years...

EDIT; As for the OP, maybe the controller packed it in? JMO
