There have been a few cases of shorting the VESC due to the sensor connector pins piercing into the +ve power wire running from the capacitor board.
PLEASE CHECK YOUR VESC BEFORE CONNECTING POWER
Here is an example of what can happen.
QUICK FIX SOLUTIONS
- Install additional shrink tube to protect the wires
- Reposition the wires so they are not being pressed into the pins when installed into your esk8
- Cut the pins shorter
- Put some glue over pins.
