How Do I Reset My Electric Bike

Are you looking for an easy way to reset your electric bike? If so, we’re here to help! We know that riding an electric bike can be fun and convenient—but sometimes, things don’t go as planned. 

You can reset your electric bike in simple steps depending on the make and model. Most models have similar resetting methods, but it’s always important to consult your owner’s manual before you begin.

Some bikes require that you remove the battery from the bike and then reinstall it, while others require you to remove it and press a button on the console.

Step 1: Check for a Reset Button.

Most electric bikes have a reset button on the control panel near the throttle. If your bike has one, press it once and wait for the system to reboot. Depending on how long the system was down, this may take several seconds or minutes. Moreover, you can also try resetting it manually. 

Step 2 – Check the Settings

Check that all the settings are set up as they should be. Check that the battery has enough charge and is connected properly to both your controller and the motor. Make sure the battery pack is intact as well.

It’s also worth checking that your brakes are working properly because if they aren’t, you won’t be able to stop when you need to!

Step 3 – Check All Connections

It’s worth checking that all connections are tight and secure before you try resetting anything, just in case any loose connections or wires are hanging around, which could cause problems later on.

If you find any issues with loose connections or wires, it’s best to fix them before going any further with resetting your bike.

Step 4 – Turn off the Bike

Remove your key and disconnect the battery after you’ve turned off the bike. Wait for at least five minutes before reconnecting it again.

  • When you’re ready to turn on your electric bike again, reconnect its battery and turn on its motor as usual by pressing down on the pedal, or pushing a button on the handlebars–but don’t go anywhere yet!
  • Once you’ve got everything back up and running, take another look at those lights: they should be lit up now instead of blinking red or green repeatedly when they were off before (and if not, try turning them off and then turning them on again). If so, congratulations! You’ve successfully reset your e-bike’s system!

Step 5 – Disconnect the Battery

First, disconnect the battery. This will be easiest if you have a bike stand that can hold up your e-bike while you work on it. Ensure not to touch any metal parts of your electric bike while doing this–touching them could result in an electric shock.

Next, remove the battery from its housing and place it on a flat surface where it won’t get damaged by falling over or rolling off. If there are any wires connecting it directly to anything else (like pedals), now would be a good time to disconnect those too!

Step 6 – Wait for a Few Minutes.

Now, the battery will start to discharge. The light on your bike will be red and blinking, which means you’re using energy from your battery. This is normal; it just means that your bike is working properly!

If you’ve been riding for a while and feel like it’s time to stop, or if you want to ride again later in the day (or tomorrow), turn off your bike by pressing its power button until it turns off completely. Then leave it alone until tomorrow or whenever else seems good!

Step 7 – Reconnect the Battery

Now that you’ve checked the battery, it’s time to reconnect it. First, ensure your bike is off and unplugged from any power source. Then, remove the cover of your e-bike’s battery compartment by unscrewing its screws with a screwdriver (or wrench).

Once you can access your bike’s batteries, connect them according to their labels: red positive (+) cable goes on top; black negative (-) cable goes on the bottom.

If there aren’t any labels on either end of your battery pack but instead just two metal connectors with clips on them–one marked “plus” and one marked “minus”–make sure those are connected correctly! Finally, replace all covers before powering up again!

Step 8 – Turn on the Bike

Before pedaling, ensure the battery is charged and you have installed all accessories. If not, stop and take care of it now.

If your bike has a display or smartphone app, use it to check the charge level before you start riding. The display will show you how much power is left in the battery pack so that you can plan how far you can go before recharging.

Step 9 – Follow Manufacturer’s Instructions

  • Read the manual. The manufacturer’s instructions are the best place to start when resetting your electric bike. If you need access to a manual, check the company’s website or YouTube channel for videos about using your specific model of e-bike.
  • Ask a mechanic if you need clarification on anything in particular. If all else fails, see an experienced mechanic who works with ebikes regularly–they’ll be able to help with any questions or troubleshooting issues you might encounter along the way!


Congratulations! You’ve set up your electric bike how you want; now it’s time to ride. The first thing to do is ensure the batteries are fully charged and connected to the bike. This can take up to 24 hours, so plug it in when you get home from work or school.

Once you’ve done that, go ahead and turn on the bike—it should start right up. If not, check that all wires are connected correctly (they should be color-coded).

If your bike still doesn’t start, check the battery level by pressing a button on either side of the battery pack.

The one on the left will tell you how much charge is left, while the one on the right will tell you how much time is left until full recharge (this will reset once your bike has been plugged in). If neither button lights up green (which means full), then it’s time for a new battery pack!
