    I have https://electricbikereview.com/e-rad/350-watt-mid-drive-conversion-kit/ in an Origin 8 Crawler. For the last few weeks, I've had problems with the PAS. It will cut out then spike to near max output. It will do this several times with little to no delay in between. After a while, it would start working properly. I noticed it today throughout my ride and I think it may have something to do with the cold. Monitor claims it was -2c even though the water on the ground was liquid, so it was probably more like 3-5C. Anyone know if cold temps can affect the PAS sensor. This is my first winter with an eBike.

    Cold temps? Only if ice builds up on the sensor. Check to see how close the magnets are to the sensor. I don't have a Rad, but it's happened on other bikes where the magnet disc either comes loose or gets bumped and it too far away from the sensor.

    --I'm having a similar problem with my Pedago Commuter. It seemed to start at around 40 f when stored in shed. I then put it in a semi heated shed and it was better until the temperature dropped some more. Does anyone have any ideas?
