Mate I’ve been trying to find that out for a while now. I don’t think anyone knows.

I contacted the company in China that makes the LCD. He told me that their customers (Sondors for example) decides which features they want. So since they didn’t want the clock it can’t be enabled. Seems silly for any bike computer to not have a clock but maybe it’s cheaper that way.

Damn my guy. That is impressive that you track the company down and called them up to ask them. This make a ton of sense known because someone else told me that they block certain features because it is illegal it some states and so they don’t get sued they take them off.

 Actually I emailed them, not called. I don’t think I would even know how to call China. I’m not sure why it would be illegal to have a clock on a bike computer anywhere but I guess it’s possible!

The other crazy thing about this square LCD is that when you turn it off it resets the ride to time back to zero. It retains the mileage though. The rectangular LCD did not behave that way.  It would retain all the information about a ride even if you turned it off.

Sorry my bad. And I don’t know why. Another question why did they use the square instead of the rectangle then if the rectangle is better? Probably money but there has to be a reason because I payed a ton of money for the bike.

It’s not illegal for the clock but it is in a settings page that can do other things that can break laws in certain states.

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.

Hi,

I have fold x, single speed 48v, 500w, delivered in June2018,  same problem, I tried to change PAS settings and now throttle function is lost and I have no clue how to get it back, tried default settings but throttle function not regained or only works briefly. Before I was able to accelerate to full speed using throttle without any pedal assist and defaulted to pass 2;  now I always have to use pedal assist to aim speed, regardless of level of assistance 1-5; btw 0 is just zero, no pedal assistance , no throttle.

      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!
