I have the foldX. My free wheel speed is 24.5 MPH on both bikes. Power is one bar.

Thanks!   Maybe the motor needs resistance to display power?  My street is a snow emergency street and is clear, but pretty wet.  Maybe I can do a test run tomorrow.

I have the stated remedies to adjust my PAS settings and they work but it shuts off all throttle function and the speed is displayed incorrectly. Anyone have any insight on this? I have resorted to setting back to default settings.

Received my wife Fold X single speed last week,  After a test ride I did not like the PAS bandwidth.  Sondors tech support shared this link and the 1-10, 2-20, 3-50, 4-70, 5-96 setup is what i was looking for.

Thank you JCJ and other forum members!

Hey folks.....I was beginning to think I was really dense while trying to change the PAS settings on FoldX.  Instructions are very unclear......but this is how I got it changed, first don't pay attention to videos on line.  The LCD I have is the KD51C which is different than all of the LCD I saw on line.  

Power up LCD

press and hold + and - buttons at same time

then press and hold + and - buttons again

your in the right spot. VOLt will be showing

Press + one time to the next parameter SCr

press i (power button briefly) to access levels

S-1_## (mine 15)

S-2_ ## (mine 25)

S-3_ ## (mine 35)

S-4_##(mine 45)

S-5_##(mine 55)

when finished, press and hold i (power) to save and back out

the default setting were way too fast for my wife to keep up with!  She likes these new settings.....

Hi Forum members, I have a Sondors X 7 speed Fat Tire bike, 48V, 500W. I bought it in early January so it has the new square looking LCD display. I too would like to change my PAS settings as it drives me nuts when I ride with non-eBike friends (I want to pedal but it just takes off even on 1 and I have to stop pedaling to regulate my speed). When I go into the settings as outlined above I get a different response. Do I have the same model LCD as Jim Siebel posted above (KD51C-KDS)? How do I check? I am unable to get past the "clear trip counter level". If anyone has step by step instructions or can point me to a youtube clip, that would be much appreciated. Thanks

Great!   I have mine set at:

s-1  15
s-2  30
s-3  50

s-4  75
s-5   99

I had it at 9 settings, but found that it required too much clicking if you needed top power (s9) from bottom power (s1)

Sounds like we think the same. I set to:

S1 - 10

S2 - 20

S3 - 50

S4 - 75

S5 - 99

I have test ridden it yet. I am looking to have just enough assistance to overcome weight and tire friction. Do your settings do that? How is it in Setting 1?

Lee Love has the answer. That's where I have mine set.

The factory settings must be for a 36V Fold. 

I usually use settings 1 or 2 on relatively flat streets at 6-8 MPH walking the dog.  Occasionally  I use #3 on hills, but almost never use 4 or 5.

I also set the max speed on my  wife's bike to 20 KPH.  It was too fast for her at 40 and scared her a bit.  I'm sure that when  she gets more used to it, I'll be able to set it back up.

Just to add:  I found that 28" wheel was the correct setting form my Thin7 using a GPS app to confirm.    I am now getting 22mph which is plenty fast for me and keeps me legal on the bike paths and trails here in Minneapolis.

Is your top speed on the Fold 45kph?     I wanted the lower settings for the first too assists because sometimes you just want to amble and take in the view.

Next topic, voltage levels. My voltage indicator has never been off full charge, even after a 30 mi ride with lots of step hills. I have a feeling it is set for a 36V system. Any suggestions for setting a 48V system?

Ours doesn't seem to have a Time function.

Mine stopped presenting the MPH and distance.   Most people think it is the sensor magnets in the Hub motor. 
A real bummer.  Everything else works.  I just need to get a separate speedometer.  Or figure out how to fix it.

Hallo zusammen. Kann mir einer die richtigen Parameter für die Einstellung der Batterieanzeige sagen. Es ist ein Fat X 48V mit 17,5AH. Ab wann  schaltet die Batterie ab? weil das wäre dann der Wert nach dem letzten Balken...

Hello everybody. Can someone tell me the right parameters for the Power Bar Settings? It's a Fat X 48V with 17,5AH. When does the battery switch off? because that would be the value after the last bar...

 

 

Danke und /and Thanks

Please access the personalized parameter settings. 

To access Personalized Parameter Settings items option page, hold both the “+” and the “-” button for 2 s, then hold both the “+” and the “-” button for 2 s again. To access the corresponding settings page we need, press the “+” or the “-” button to increase or decrease until the desired item (Battery Power Bar Settings Interface - see image) is displayed, and then press the “i” button to confirm.

To set battery power bar, press the “+” or the “-” button to increase or decrease the number. To store a changed setting and access the second bar, press the “i” button. By analogy, after 5 bars voltage values is entered, the values are for 48V batteries: 

VOL1: 41.2

VOL2: 43.7 

VOL3: 46.8 

VOL4: 49.9 

VOL5: 53

hold the “i” button to confirm and then return to the previous menu.

How do I set the PAS to 0 on the display? When I turn it on it defaults to 2 pas. 

Before powering down the LCD, turn the PAS setting to 0. That should make PAS 0 the default start up condition.

      * The best way to use this video is to watch and write down the desired options, then exit and program your LCD. if you try and program while watching the video your LCD will timebout and none of the settings will be saved and you’ll have to keep starting over because of the length of Kyles explanations .

      DIY: S-LCD3 Meter for Sondors eBike
       
      This walkthrough is for those who purchased the non Sondors S-LCD3 with the white flat 5-pin connector. If you are not comfortible with soldering, then you may want to wait for the retail Sondors LCD in xmas 2015.
      Walkthrough by Matt Moss
      Downloadable at uberbills.com/DIY-SLCD3-Soldering.docx
      S-LCD3 purchased from BMSBattery.com

      Tools:
      Screwdriver
      Wire Strippers
      Soldering iron
      60/40 Solder

      Step 1: Attach LCD3 to handlebars

      Step 2: Snip off the useless white flat 5-pin connector.

      Step 3: Pull meter cable through top hole in sondors battery box. (no picture)

      Step 4: Snip off the round 5-pin female plug and strip all the wiring down a half inch.

      Step 5: Proceed to tin the stranded wire ends. tinning means to apply hot motlen solder to the stranded wire, which helps to solder two separate wires together.

      Step 6: Admire your soldering job and apply insulation. I used cheap electrical tape, but you should spend a few cents and get some shrink tube.
       



      Step 7: Double check that no exposed wire is showing, and test our your new lcd meter. Hold the center power button to turn on. To keep the backlight on for easy viewing, press and hold the up arrow. If you hold and press the down arrow, your bike will lurch forward at a walking speed, so be careful!

      FAQ:
      Q: I press and hold the up arrow like you said and my bike wants to go for a ride. What gives?
      A: You installed your LCD button upsidedown. Reverse it and you should be fine.
      Q: Halp! Why is my LCD screen upside down?
      A: You installed your LCD screen upside down. /reverse it and you should be fine.
      Q: After installing the LCD, I am unable to engage the throttle and the bike does not move, yet everything is on. What Gives?
      A: Check that the LCD screen is actually on, you must have the LCD turned on in order for you to power your bike and use the motor.

      If you have any questions, feel free to PM me (private eMails or information not permitted in open forum PM me).. Please include in the subject “Sondors Storm Owners Group”

      My lcd has just died on my Fold sport from water damage I'm quite sure so this is my perfect opportunity to upgrade I have been looking at the 750w bafang rear hub motor and they say it will lace in 350w motor no problem but I have the 250w bafang rear hub motor. Will it fit? But first I want too upgrade the sondors lcd to the ktc3 25 amp and 25 amp controller and will wait till sondors have the 48v 14 amp available in Europe  until i upgrade the motor as the 38v 8.8amp battery won't be powerful enough. Any suggestions or problems with my plan I would appreciate feed back

      Hello everyone, I currently have an Original Sondors Fat Tire bike from 2016 (I believe).  I purchased it from a friend who had performed some upgrades to it.
      As the bike sits today:
      Luna Storm 48v 20ah Battery Controller Model KT36/48ZWSRMD-SLSLD02 Rated for DC 36v or 48v, Rated current 12A Maximum current 25+-1A (Assuming this is from Luna as well) Original Motor Bafang RMG06 36v 350W(10) 26-1-1508195560-6 LCD Luna LCD Dashboard for Sondors KT-LCD3 Took the bike out for a ride the other day after it had been sitting in the garage for about a month and received a motor hall connection error on my LCD screen. Tried the usual unplugging the connection under the chainstay and making sure I had charged the battery. I'm wondering if I am able to replace the cable coming out of my motor (if that is the culprit) or if I need to replace the motor altogether. If that is the case, would anyone recommend I upgrade to a 48v motor? Would it make a difference/ work with my existing upgrades? I'm new to the forum and Ebike scene in general so I appreciate any help. Thanks!
