    ANSWERED LCD displays error code 3

    I had this problem. I disassembled my motor and found that I had fairly bad corrosion, probably from salt water intrusion. I rode close to or probably in salt water at Biloxi beach this summer. I lubed with WD-40 and got the motor loose enough to get it out of the case. I cleaned the rotor really well with a drill mounted wire wheel and cleaned the case with steel wool. I greased the gears well with Lubriplate (white lithium grease) and blew the WD-40 out of the windings with compressed air. Reassembled the motor. At first, the throttle was erratic and the 03 code came back but the noise was gone. The motor would run just fine for pedal assist. I ran it on the stand by pedal for probably 15 minutes and the throttle started working again. I guess the WD cleaned the sensor enough to work after it dried out. So far,so good. The symptoms that Steve77 reported were the same----error code 03 and noise from motor.
