Always worth trying the connector for the red cable. Try taking it off and giving the terminals on the pod a clean . Might just be corroded.

  • 4 legs may be better than 2 but 3 wheels better then anything!

Also as stated by others and I have found out for myself pulling the ribbon cable out of the POD and pushing it back in several times may work. I found that a position less than fully pushed in made a 'clean' connection. Do this with the battery connected until you see the lights are working.

Hi - if the harness connection is not the issue (hope it is)  then check you are getting 5v from the regulator in the control box - good luck and let us know how it goes - Marty

hi everyone ive chcked my pod and it doesnt seem to have any corrsion around the connectors but ill cleanthem anyway, pictures will be going on facebook tonight. i did try taking it out and outting it back in several times, hasnt worked yet. remember the buzzer does work on it so could it be an issue with the lights and is it worth checking the connection of the cable in the actual controll box. thanks - josh.
