Hi Zapped. Glad to have you on the forum, but please don't duplicate post in the future. Hopefully someone will be able to help you with programming your controller shortly.

Apologies to all for unintentionally spamming the forum. OK, so now that all is working fine, I want to disable regen off the accelerator and enable it on the brake. Anybody knows how to do this with a Curtis 1238-6501? Thanks.

Yes, you set neutral braking close to 0 (maybe 5%), and set up your brake with a potentiometer. You will need a programmer to do so.

Hi Travis. Thanks. I already have a brake pot that is enabled via the programmer and I see the voltage change when rotated but does not seem to generate regen. Also, cannot see in the programmer with I put the 0 neutral value for the throttle.

Any other clues please?

In the Brake Menu, Set "Brake Pedal Enable" to "ON"

Under the Torque Mode menu, set "neutral braking" to something like 5%. You probably will want a small amount of neutral braking.

Thanks Travis. I am pretty sure I have switched on the brake. Oh, and no ideally I want 0 regen on throttle. I'll have a look at this shortly. Very appreciated. Aldo.

All good questions. I am using a 3 wire hall effect brake with switch. Have selected Type 2.

still have not sorted this problem. car drives beautifully. have managed to minimise throttle regen so i can change gears without clutch, all good. however, dont seem to be able to enable brake regen. in the programmer i can see that when i rotate brake throttle, voltage changes appropriately. however no regen! any ideas please?

What's your wiring like? Can you at least say what wires from each throttle go to what pin of the controller?
