RadTrike error codes

Your RadTrike is equipped with an error detection system integrated into the display and motor controller. In the case of an electronic control system fault, an error code will appear on the Rad UI Remote in the form of a large “E” and a sequence of lighted power bars. The lower bars represent the first digit of the error code, and the top bars represent the second digit. The following error codes are the most common on the Trike.

If an error code displays, make note of the number or take a picture. Try turning the trike off and then back on, and make sure you are not causing the error by holding the hand brake or pressing another button on the remote at the same time.
