ST1x - Drive Error 0x210206


New Member
After charging my battery on Friday and shoving it back in, I attempted to take my bike out this morning. The headlight didn't turn on, but the touch screen did. When attempting to ride, I got:

Drive Error

and 0 pedal assistance. I tried removing the battery for 30 seconds and shoving it back in, but that didn't seem to bring back functionality. Any ideas?
According to a thread on stromerforum, some one with a similar situation found the solution in having a new controller installed.
Yes, I ended up having the dealer I bought it from take a look at it, and they ended up having to replace the controller. I'm very thankful they identified the problem quickly and were able to fix it without any fuss.
