Endurance Computer Stopped Working
Posted September 25, 2002 - 03:28 AM
My WS setting has not changed. (2146). I have checked the wire for damage, loose connections, etc. The sensor and magnet are mounted securely in the proper locations.
Any ideas on what is causing this? Do I have a defective unit?

"Double check that you are in mph and not kmh.
Assuming your computer is in mph, and both speed and distance are doubled, you can check to find out if there is another magnetized location that is causing the double trigger.
To do this, put the bike on a stand so that the front wheel rotates freely. If you use the computer to test (an ohm meter is the other option), let it go to sleep so that just the clock shows. Then, have someone watch the computer and rotate the wheel slowly so that every portion of the rotor EXCEPT the magnetic bolt passes by the sensor. When the computer comes to life, you know the sensor has detected magnetism."
I found the problem. I checked it with an ohm meter and I was indeed getting 2 signals.
Apparently, the kit shipped with a spare magnet that was stuck to the magnet for the brake rotor bolt. Not realizing there were two magnets, I installed it as usual.
I must have hit some brush or something that knocked the spare magnet to the other side of the rotor, causing the double signal.
I put the spare in the toolbox and all is well.
