I have a Schwinn I zip electric bicycle purchased in Canada and Schwinn does not seen to support the bike any more.
My twist throttle "Currie " fell apart and would not stop applying power to the motor until the breaks were applied.
It was a 5 pin connector to the 24volt 35 amp controller but the connection was a group of 3 wire to 1 plug and then 2 wires to the other plug.
This had the throttle as well as the 4 lights to show battery level.
I have tried to replace the throttle with a new 1 but he 5 wires were in 1 plug . so purchased the matching controller and now I don't get any lights or power to the motor.
Is there some way to test the throttle to see if the 1 I received is defective?
Can I connect any other throttle to my controller to get the bike operational?
I would like to upgrade to a newer model bike in the future so hope to not have to spend lots on a old bike but can't afford the new 1 let.
Please let us know how it goes and we will take it from there.
