Have a 2015 Specialized Turbo X

Have a turbo x which has been in a specialized shop because the motor cuts off and the head light does not work. They have put a new harness on the bike but the light still does not work. They have said everything checks out but the light still does not work. I told them to replace the light which they are in the process of doing. The frustration has been they tell me the bike runs without the light but I ride about a mile and the motor cuts off.

Often this is a loose connection at the top of the battery. There is a plate on the bottom of the frame that can be adjusted to put more upward pressure on the battery/frame connection at the top. It holds the battery in more securely. If the battery is bouncing, it may momentarily disconnect, shutting the motor off and requiring a repower.

The light may be a wiring issue in the downtube near the frame headtube or a problem in the light itself. On my 2015 Specialized Turbo, I ended up replacing the light because the wire from the frame to the light was damaged.

Finally, one of the battery failure modes that I experienced a few years ago was the battery cutting out. This turned out to be an actual battery failure. The issue is that these are no longer available as far as I know. I ended up replacing my 462Wh non-bluetooth battery with the 691Wh bluetooth battery from a Turbo S. Mission Control now works on my bike and I have a range of around 80 miles.

Good luck.

Thank you for your comment. I will show it to the bike shop because they are unsure of what to do.

I was having trouble with the motor cutting out after going over some bumps. The lights would work but no power to motor. Re-racking the battery would get me a few more miles. I found the post by bazzapage in the topic below with a link to ordering a replacement Rosenburger connector. I replaced the connector and the issue went away. I used to recharge the battery out of the bike at work so I had a lot of cycles on the connector. No issues since replacing the connector.
