No too busy trying to sort problems out Any idea on this one. The motor switch seems to stick on intermittently. I disconected the switch by the handle bars and the motor continued running. Was a bit hairy, as I had to steer through traffic on my runaway c5 until I thought to dc the battery. I got it back ok and it seemed ok for a while then problem started again. Your collective wisdom would be welcome. Martin

Sounds most likely that the motor relay in the control box is sticking on !? Don't know if anyone else has any other thoughts on this one, but if disconnecting the handlebar switch doesn't stop the motor this is the first thing I'd check. kamztrad

LOL not asleep, trying to fix my printer  As for the motor staying on, as mentioned by Kamztrad & Area51, the relay will be the most likely problem.  I'd replace it straight away.  Its also worth checking D1 in the control box as this is meant to stop back EMF from the motor arcing the relay contacts.
