Question about Precor EFX 546i Elliptical Version 4

My 546i is telling me to pedal fast after I hit Quick Start or manually start a program. It's obviously not working. I just put a new battery in it too.

This problem maybe coming for n the generator it performs 3 function 1. controls electrical load / resistance to pedals 2. Charging system for the battery 3. Monitors unit when in use (stride) or when it is idle.
To test unit: Remove cover disconnect red battery lead. then use a multi-meter set function to ohms set range that can read 50 ohms. then disconnect generator lead from circuit board. M3=brown , M4= blue, M5= violet, with the meter read between Brown and blue, blue and violet , brown and violet, each of these read should be between 26 and 27 ohms. If any of the reading s are high or low replace generator

I would definitely check the battery first. The battery may not have enough charge to power everything plus the lift motor.

Start with checking the battery. You are correct in your thinking of the machine recharging the battery, however over time a battery can develop a bad cell. This will prevent the battery from holding a charge. This link is a video that will assist you in checking the batteries voltage.

How can I bypass the starter in my car(manual trans) so it will start? I had the battery checked and it's fine.

  • If the engine cranks ("rrr-rrr-rrr") when you turn the key, then the problem isn't the starter or the battery.Plan to have at least one person sitting in the driver's seat and one or two persons pushing.Turn off all accessories (radio, wipers, lamps).Turn the key to the "on" position.Depress the clutch pedal with your foot.Put the transmission in first or second gear.Release the hand brake and the foot brake.Note that the people pushing need to get the car rolling as fast as they can. This works best down a hill or an incline.Release the clutch pedal while giving the engine a little gas with the gas pedal once the car is moving about as fast as you can run. The engine should start

    Either your starter or solenoid is out. You can tell by push starting the vehicle in 2nd gear (you do second gear because there is less strain on it and if for some reason it is damaged, you maintain the use of your vehicle.) if it starts, then drive your vehicle to saturn and have them fix it.....and push for a warranty repair. :D

    Car won't start!!

    AmyLynn001, 1st thing, let the car sit for a couple hours (because u smell gas, it's definitely flooded). Turn the key to start (do NOT touch the gas pedal!! Cars are designed now to start w/out touching the gas pedal. If u do, u will flood it, and make it even more difficult to start) When u turn the key, only hold it to turn the engine over for no more than 10 seconds. If after the 10 seconds it doesn't start, turn key off, wait about 10 seconds, repeat. (this is to reduce wear and tear on the starter, and to not run the battery down real quick). It sounds like several problems coming together caused this. U state that the car needs a tune up, it's likely the overheating, need of a tune up (car not performing to optimum efficiency) and pushing on the gas pedal, resulting in flooding, all came together to create this no start condition. Eliminate any one (preferably all!) and u should be able to start the car. So, hopefully just letting it sit and not touching the gas pedal while attempting to start will be enough to get u back on the road, then get that tune up soon. Let me know how u make out.
