Hi, I have a Tectrix Bikemax R life cycle since 1998. The power no longer comes on. How do I know it's the power board vs the control board? Thank you, David

There is no plug in to the life-cycle. It must run on an alternator or self power system. I saw on another website that I can buy a exchangeable power supply board. It this just a matter of getting a new power board and trying to see if that works?

Yes, the boards can be swapped in - testing the board using a voltmeter first will help to confirm if it needs to be replaced or not.
