Hub-Drive Turbo shut off and now will turn on and then immediately die


Active Member
I have a 2016 Turbo X with about 4000 miles. Today on my commute it just lost all power out of the blue (it continued to read 27 mph as my speed got slower and slower and then I stopped). I had to ride the last 7-8 miles to work without any assist, which was a good workout!

When I turn it on, it runs through the check (lighting up lights 1, 2, 3, 4 like usual without any errors) and then immediately dies.

I tried removing the battery, same result. Left the battery out for an hour, no change.

Battery was at around 70% when this happened.

Any idea what could be going on or how to fix it?

It’s probably not a common issue.

It’s not listed in the diagnosis decision chart which I’ve attached. Nevertheless that chart might give you some ideas. You’ll probably need to try with another battery or another remote.

Good news - it was just a bad display. My LBS (Specialized dealer) replaced it for $100 (out of warranty) and it seems fine now.
