Parts Information

Part number: Software that matches the vehicle type based on VIN number and motor identification tag.  The SW
QTY / Vehicle: 1


Garia has identified that some motors could be equipped with a newer style motor temperature sensor that could give the controller a false temperature reading. This could result in the controller thinking that the motor is overheating resulting in a reduced power mode or complete stall of the Garia. New software has been accomplished to allow the controller to process the values from the newer temperature sensor.

To identify if your vehicle might be affected, look for the identification plate on your motor, lower left corner of the plate, and if you see PT1000 your vehicle might be affected.
