    PAS and Throttle - a Mystery

    I read that some Bafang users can operate the throttle. Others talk about PAS. On my installation, which is a few months old, I only have PAS. The throttle does nothing. I can't see any settings on the control screen to activate the throttle. I have read that it requires re-programming to have both PAS and throttle. Some users have complained that when using the throttle, if they move the pedals the power stops, even with the throttle pressed down. My question is, how can I have the option of using either the throttle or the PAS selector? Can you use both at the same time? Any clues?

    I use both - mostly pedal on my BBSHD. With the recent units the pedaling overrides the throttle when it is anything but full so essentially the throttle doesn't work while pedaling but will work normally when you stop. There are settings to make it throttle-only so you can pedal while having complete throttle control but then the pedal assist is entirely disabled and I play with this mode when I'm out in a hard dirt day but you have to flash the settings to get from the throttle-only back to the default having pedal assist, and throttle with no pedaling.

    Some folks on another board are working on a hardware remedy that looks very promising that would enable a fairly seamless transition from pedal-assist to throttle...

      I have BbS 02 with thumb throttle, and use it as well as 5 level PAS all the time, not sure what your issue is (was, hopefully figured it out by now). Worked out of the box and on the road for a year now. I usually use throttle getting started have the PAS delay to engage gradually if I go that way cruising use PAS mostly. Seamless now, so if anyone having specific issues I'm looking pay more attention to what I do. Now I just enjoy the commute, even during Iowa winter ( 9F commute recently. Definitely awake when got to work!)
