How to Troubleshoot Issues with Your Ola Electric Scooter

Owning an electric scooter has its perks, but it’s not without its challenges. Upon receiving my Ola Electric scooter, I encountered a frustrating issue – a sudden thud sound followed by a loss of acceleration. Determined to find a solution, I reached out to the Ola Service Centre through their website, rather than the app. To my surprise, they responded promptly and provided a potential fix.

The service technician instructed me to enter the Diagnostic Mode after pressing the ‘Scooter Mode’ and selecting the ‘Service’ option. Initially unaware of the importance of this step, I discovered that it plays a crucial role in resolving scooter issues. After entering Diagnostic Mode, I sent a screenshot to the technician via WhatsApp and was directed to the next steps.

Upon switching to ‘Service Mode’, the Diagnostic Server status changed from Red to Green, indicating a successful connection. Various details and values were displayed, but for privacy reasons, I have chosen not to share them here. The technician collected the necessary data and instructed me to exit the Service Mode.

Following these steps, I was advised to check the scooter after a few hours for a software update notification. Although I didn’t initially receive one, the technician followed up and ensured the back-end team prioritized the update. After enabling the “Auto Download Updates” feature, I observed an ongoing download process for Move OS 3.1.6, totaling 1.03GB in size.

Installing the software update proved to be a smooth process that required a reboot of the scooter. Fortunately, no errors were encountered, and the installation completed within an hour, consuming just 1% of the battery.

With the new software installed, I am yet to test if the performance issues have been resolved. However, I haven’t noticed any significant changes to the user interface or additional features. Given the current traffic conditions in Manali, I anticipate testing the scooter’s performance after the New Year rush subsides.

Thanks to connected technology, the service technician was able to resolve the issue remotely, saving a lengthy trip and valuable time. As an Ola Electric scooter owner, it’s reassuring to know that their support team is readily available to address concerns and provide timely solutions.
