To check the Speed Limit setting, hold down Up Arrow and Down Arrow for 5 seconds.
The large flashing number needs to be set to 20. Hold down Up Arrow and Down Arrow for 5 seconds to leave the speed limit setting.
Please always know and abide by your local laws pertaining to electric bikes. Be responsible and safe when operating your Jupiter Bike.

This is most commonly caused by the motor wire accidently coming unplugged. Locate the plug on the motor wire near the rear fork and reconnect it.
Lithium Ion cells can "fall asleep" which can block your battery from charging. You can wake the cells up by following these steps:
- Place the battery in your freezer for 24 hours. It's okay if you're a bit over.
- Let the battery thaw 6-8 hours. Please try to stay in this range, the timing on this step is important.
- Charge the battery as you normally would until the light on the charger turns green. Please note that this can take up to 24 hours. Please unplug if the charger is still red after 24 hours.
- You're good to go!
Another reason for your battery to not charge is a faulty charger, but this is much more rare.
