It's the red battery cover under the seat. Carefully lift and remove the seat and you'll find that the shroud is simply attached with velcro

Celebrity x charging fuses
Hidden under the floor mat and hatch, you'll find two high amp fuses that Pride say don't exist! - they do. Be careful with the rubber mat lugs they deform and are tricky to reseat.
the fuses are standard car fuses. It's busually the red 10 Amp fuse that's blown.
the cause of the problem may possibly be the three pin XLR cable/ plug.

Battery won't charge
If the battery wont charge the item will need a service engineer to test it. I am not sure of the particular model but there is a possibility that either the charger itself is at fault OR the charging circuit has either a diode or capacitor damaged.
If the charger plugs into a 240v socket in the house have the charger checked to show voltage is being output by it.
If it is then how old is the battery on the scooter? does it need replacing? have a voltage test done.
If both the battery and wall charger if there is one is OK then I would say another part of the vehicles circuitry made be at fault and suggest you have it looked at. .

Why won't it operate?
How many flashes on green light. Count them and you should find in the trouble shooting section of your user manual what the problem is. Most cases you can sort yourself.

More on Celebrity X motor overheating. Brushes look good. Brake does not seem to be dragging, Batteries are about 5 years old but hold a good charge when not in use for months,
If the motor is overheating, it is drawing far more current out of
the batteries than it is supposed to. Assuming it is 2 x 13v x 33ah
batteries, these are good for about 2 to 3 years on my scooter and 'wheelchair. AGM (absorbent glass mat) lead acid batteries do deteriorate over time due to battery chemistry.
Although the batteries may appear to take a charge
and the voltage 12.6volt x 2 = 25.2 volts nominal, with no load
on them, the motor controller takes a whack of current to get you going.
I have an digital voltmeter/ammeter installed on my Pride XL scooter and I was amazed how much current the motor/motor controller takes from the batteries. 50 to 80amps on startup.
If the battery voltage drops due to the age of the batteries, as the
energy is being used up from them, the current required by the
motor for rotation has to go up, and that will cause overheating of the controller and the motor. It is Ohms law plain and simple
the less voltage available-the more current required to do the
work and current creates the heating effect.
I replace my batteries every two years. Can't take a chance on
being stuck with discharged batteries.
