Default Kandi Coco Err 02...problem?

I was driving home from work tonight and hit a BIG pothole. Yikes!

The car stopped. It showed all normal on the gauges, except where the digital readout was it read Err 02.

72 V system, Great Land Controller.

Although it showed all normal on meters, car would not drive. My wife and I pushed it into a parking space. Imagine my surprise when I turned it off and back on and it was totally normal and ran fine.

Is this some sort of impact error code? Did shutting the car off and turning it back on in effect "reset (reboot) the Controller?" What is Error code 2....I drove 2 miles home, no problems....it almost seemed to be a bit peppier than usual....very odd...

At home, popped hood, everything seems fine and normal....Any ideas?

BTW I have had this Kandi Coco since August, have put 1470 miles on it with NO problems whatsoever. Other than the speed (25-30) its a GREAT little city car!

You could check with the supplier. Probably have to learn Mandarin though.

Hi rkarl,

You did clear the error code by turning off the key and restarting the controller. I have a Green Vehicles Moose with a Greatlands controller/motor and that is the process for clearing an error code.

Here is a link to Shenzhen Greatlands website, not much info but it's something; http://en.glelec.com/cp.html#

I have had good response from Cherry at Greatlands glelec002@163.com

OK, this is weird....I am the OP of this thread....it happened again.....I am getting a bit concerned. Although it reset immediately I am a bit concerned that this has happened twice in a week. After it reset, I drove it 10 miles home without incident. Very unnerving.

What exactly IS error 2...I have a Kandi Coco 2009 with a Great Land Controller and 1530 miles...havent been left stranded YET but...hmmmmmmm????

Help...anyone?

You really need to contact the manufacturer

It's not something that DIY people would likely know because those error codes are specific to the OEM, and not likely going to be the same as anyone using a greatlands controller..... if anyone here is using them.

Did it happen again when you hit a pothole? It may have a built-in inertia switch that faults on impact.

Looks like someone's anti-Greatland (China) controller's bias is showing, lol.....

Seriously, to those who answered without the sarcasm, thank you and yes, I have e-mailed Kandi USA (not chinaKandi).....

To those who may have an anti-China EV bias, all I can say is, when they build an EV HERE that I can buy for <$6,000, I will buy it.....This is my FIRST EV, and it's a damn nice vehicle.

I simply wanted to know what that SPECIFIC error code meant....thank you to those who helped. I will pursue this with the OEM and the dealership (in the very non-Chinese city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin).

Should anyone know that, please let me know, as I believe MOST of the folks here have been genuinely helpful...that's why I joined this board...

Oh, yes, Ziggy....I too have been wondering if it's an inertia-switch type fault...seems that I had a Ford car once that had something like that...but I couldnt just turn it off and on to reset it...haha

Oh yes, Mark F....I did e-mail Greatlands, waiting for a reply...thanks again....

I thought Salty was being a little tongue-in-cheek, but I don't think he was anti-China. When the non-NEV Chinese EVs show up here, even they won't be less than $6000. Even the Kandi-Coco is actually a $10k EV, less USA subsidies.

Our Lithium battery packs are strait from China for the most part. I've had great luck dealing with Chinese manufactures and dealers, though there are time zone and language issues. Please relax and enjoy the ride.

I wasnt referring to Salty, and my NEV wasnt a subsidized one.

Anyways, I do appreciate all the helpful comments, and I WILL continue to enjoy the Ride.

Cheers!
