Hi there Derek,
this is going to seem really stupid...how should I start....do I just switch on and pedal or am i missing something?
It should be just a case of switching on and the POD will light up. Then pressing the switch on the left side of the handlebar and the motor will fire up.
on either side of handlebars there is a small red thumbswitch under the hand grips. the r/h "peeps" when pressed and the left is silent.....whats that all about?
The left one is for the motor, the right one will be the horn. So if the horn is working then the Control Box is receiving power okay, but the POD isn't...
Are you able to remove the POD and open it up and see if there are any broken solder joints on the main connector pins? If you have a multi-meter it would really help to track down why the POD isn't receiving any power.
There may also be a problem in the control box, the regulator, possibly a fuse may have blown. Are you able to check the fuses? Again, a multimeter would help here.
If you want you can pop the POD in the post to me and I'll test it here on a working C5 to see if the fault lies in the POD?
