We have found an issue that causes Vololights to "hang" in a limited number of motorcycles during starting. During the failure mode the Vololights will be stuck with a row of LEDs ON or OFF in solid mode. The problem is related to the voltage oscillations that is present during hard starting. We have also seen a failure when an aftermarket relay is used to turn Vololights ON and OFF.
Faizal had travelled to San Francisco in late April to measure the problem on the Vespa and we've made some firmware and hardware change. We are also developing a small electrical filter box for field solutions.
If you own a Vololights and noticed that it is stuck in a certain mode, please get in touch with us so we can ship you the external filter when it is available. (Early June).
