    And now the MOST IMPORTANT part about replacing fuses.


    WHY that fuse is blown?


    Before replacing an fuse is important to understand why and how the fuse blowed up. Fueses are safety device made to protect the system from bigger failure , if a fuse blown then something is wron in the system and needs to be correct befor using the system again

    Glad you figured it out. I would put in that LEV now that you have it. Much better unit than the Albright.

    There shouldn't be anything between your main fuse and B+. That fuse is mainly to protect the pack. Anything connected between the main fuse and B+ is a liability.

    Ideally your main fuse is midpack so the pack is protected even if there is a short right at the main battery terminals. Not so easy with some pack designs of course.

    Hughes, this thread is not a waste of time. I'm just now getting into setup of my 1238 for the first time, and like you, I'm seeing 102v at the contactor output which concerned me since the LEV I have is a 12Volt model. I hadnt even stopped to think it's a PWM signal, which explains why the DMM didn't pickup anything when I tried measuring on AC mode just in case.

    I had a fuse blow couple years ago about 10 miles from home. Fortunately I was within a 1/4 mile of a dollar store. Was able to buy a cheap wrench and jump around it. I now carry a small tool kit and #6 jumper wire!

    Glad you were able resolve this problem, Mr.Burnout. Hugues, in your real world experience, what has been the performance of the AC20/ Curtis combo? If possible, even estimated, what's the:

    Operating voltage (I think I read 96V)
    Battery capacity
    Final drive ratio
    Rear tire diameter
    Motor RPM range
    Weight of your bike
    Top speed and motor/battery current
    Max sustained speed and motor/battery current
    Motor operating temp
    Measured or perceived acceleration rate/ hill climbing ability
    Range

    Thank you
