I am looking for a replacement "speed Controller" for my 48 volt Pedego Interceptor.
It is a 2015 year and tbe original part #4818DLC-84AC1 (ZN180507-436).
The printed circuit board and contents are covered in a semi-rubberish-clear-plastic material, making it very difficult to repair.
Any information is greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much...

UPDATE 12/24/21:
I was able to replace 2 "shorted" MOSFETs and the speed controller is back in service.
I am still interested in a standby replacement "working or not".
Thank you again...

Hi there Rex - I am a Pedego Mechanic, we have two generations of controllers, the first generation controllers are made by Ananda and have non-waterproof connections on the motor wire, they are little push pins - I'll take a look in our controller drawer and see if I can find you something. The gen6 controllers we can order no problem, its possible to upgrade to gen 6 controller, you would have to change the motor cable and buy an additional adapter. Let me know if this helps.

Thank you very much for the reply. I appreciate it.
Like I said in my follow-up, I was able to repair my unit which had 2 "shorted" MOSFETs.
At this time I am only interested in another "exact" unit such as mine, working or not.
If it comes to additional problems in the future, I will definitely upgrade to a newer unit.
Thank you again for your time.

From all of my research that I have done, they are very difficult to find to next to impossible.
You would have to call numerous EV bike shops as I did to see if they have your unit or a compatible replacement in stock.
I have not been able to locate one for mine at this time.
I was able to repair mine as shown in the previous treads.
I have seen several on eBay, some on amazon, aliexpress & alibaba, but again if it's not an exact replacement, you will need to research as I did.
Pedego factory "customer service" should be able to help especially if it is just recently out of warranty.
Error Code #15 is the communication between the LCD panel to the speed controller, according to Pedego chart. Just be sure to double-check the cable to the
LCD panel. Dirty / corrosion connections might be causing a simple repair.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

In the past, I have ordered controllers directly from Pedego. You might try giving them a call at (800) 646-8604.

thanks for the response. i checked all the connections. i'm probably going to have to take it in to pedego. they're really cool, but i like to be able to fix and do routine maintenance myself. it doesn't matter if it's a pc, snowboard or bike. if it's something i love, i need to know the inner workings of these things. it's part of the fun i guess. seems like i bought an apple with the pedego instead of a pc. fun little bike though.

thank you so much.... gotta give them a try after work. thanks again. i really hate these types of proprietary parts that there's no aftermarket replacement.
