For general SmartSense use questions see: Getting started with SmartSense
SmartSense appears non-responsive / Battery Deep Sleep
- After two weeks of inactivity, SmartSense will go into Deep Sleep to reduce battery consumption. SmartSense will appear to be non-functional. To wake from Deep Sleep, hold the button on the battery for 4 seconds.
- You can also trigger Deep Sleep (for storage or transport) by holding the button on the battery for 4 seconds.
Battery not charging / LEDs not working
- If the battery is fully depleted (0%) and enough time passes, in some cases the LED lights will not work. This can make it appear like the battery is not charging at all, when it actually is.
- After sufficient charging time (3 hours):
- Charging on the cradle: Remove and then reinstall the battery on the cradle to reset the LEDs.
- Charging off the cradle: Reinstall the battery on the cradle to reset the LEDs.
Auto Wake feature does not work, or turns SmartSense on when I'm not riding
See: Auto Wake feature does not work
Front or Rear light not working
- Check that the cable connections are fully seated (some are inside the frame). The connectors may need to be re-oriented rotationally and then firmly seated.
- Try changing light modes
- Connect the Cannondale App and verify the light modes have not been customized to Off.
My selected light mode is changing on its own
- To maximize visibility, lights will always start in mode 1 when first powered on
- Also see Auto Adjust in Low Light / Auto On in Low Light feature explained in Getting started with SmartSense
Auto Adjust in Low Light engages too frequently (StVZO: Auto On in Low Light)
- The function of the Auto Adjust feature can be affected by the ambient light sensor (located on the back of the front light) being obstructed.
- This setting can be disabled in the Cannondale App.

Check that the cable connecting the Radar to the Rear light is fully seated. The connectors may need to be re-oriented rotationally and then firmly seated.
