Just went on a ride on my eBike and got caught in a heavy downpour of rain and my eBike stopped working!!! The C6 readout still works but no power to the hub motor at all!!! I could use some advise on what to do next???
This is a very good advice.I know this sounds weird, but maybe try gently using a hair dryer to speed up the drying out process.
I recently spilled some water on my work laptop (Thikpad T580) and the keyboard, touchpad stopped working. I had some deadlines to submit a research document. It was very stressful few hours.Just went on a ride on my eBike and got caught in a heavy downpour of rain and my eBike stopped working!!!

I have a 2015 Leisger CD5 with over 3500 miles on the clock so a warranty is not in question. I live in the west central coast of Florida (Clearwater) so I get plenty of rain and have been stuck riding in the rain countless times in the past few years. This particular ride involved a very severe downpour of rain that was extremely bad and I should have stopped and taken shelter somewhere along the way. When my bike failed I still had a full display with no error codes, the bike simply stopped running. I had to manually ride home without any assistance for about 2 miles back to my home in the severe downpour. Still not sure where the water intrusion problem was as I used an entire can of compressed air and a blow dryer to clear out all the connection points I could find.Glad you got your bike working again and I hope you found the source of the water intrusion. I am on an extended camping vacation and my bike has been rained on twelve of the past fourteen days! I ride the bike everyday and today was the first time I got caught in a heavy thunderstorm. The bike and I both got a good soaking before we found a covered shelter to wait out the storm. So far, I have had no issues, maybe I have just been lucky, but I will be disappointed if my bike quits working because it got rained on.
I am curious as to how old your bike is and if this is the first time it has gotten wet. If it is still under warranty, I would be talking to the vendor/manufacturer/LBS about the source of the water intrusion and available remedies.
