ICON Controller ID Guide

ICON uses 2 different controllers in their vehicles. It is important to know which controller is in your vehicle as each will require their own specific equipment which is NOT compatible with each other- you MUST use the correct cable and the correct software. They are NOT universal and you cannot mix and match! The changeover was made late 2021/early 2022. It is possible to have a late 2021 model with the newer ICON controller or have an early 2022 model vehicle with the older NEOS controller. It is also possible to have a 2022 vehicle with the ICON controller that is not indicated on the data plate. Below are the steps to determine which controller type is in your ICON vehicle.

1. Check the black data plate behind the brake pedal

 

Data plate marked "ICON CONTROLLER: 350A"
(May Be Marked 350A OR 450A)

Data plate without controller designation.

The quickest and easiest way to determine which controller is in your ICON vehicle is to look at the black data plate behind the brake pedal. If your black data plate is marked "ICON CONTROLLER: 350A", You have the ICON controller and no further checks are needed. If the back data plate is NOT marked for the controller type you will need to do further checks as there were some model vehicles equipped with the ICON controller prior to the designation being marked on the data plates.

 

2. Check the programming port

The programming port is located in the battery bay under the seat next to the Run/Tow switch. It may have a protective cap on it which will need to be removed for the check and also during programming.

 

3. Check the programming port

Programming port with all 4 positions of the connector populated with pins/wires, This indicates the vehicle is equipped with the ICON controller.

Programming port with only 3 out of 4 positions of the connector populated with pins/wires, This indicates the vehicle is equipped with the NEOS controller.

 

4. Physical observation of the controller

The controller on the ICON is accessed from the rear of the vehicle and is mounted under the rear body, just forward of the rear axle. It has a black plastic protective cover over it, You will notice the power leads from the motor going into the housing. If you have a rear seat the cooler insert will need to be removed to open the rear access hatch.

 

Now that we have identified the controller in your vehicle we can take a look at the required equipment to connect to the vehicle and make your desired changes. The NEOS programming software requires a specific CANUSB adapter be used with their software in order to establish a connection. This is NOT included with the purchase of our programming cable. It must be purchased separately, directly from the manufacturer. The ICON controller does NOT require this adapter.
