Question about Pride Mobility Products GoGo Elite Traveller 4 Wheel Travel Scooter
I have two of these machines,so I have swapped the batteries & the rear drive mechanism to no avail.The problem would appear to be in the control circuitry which may have got damp as the scooter worked well prior to leaving it outside even though it was covered up.
F when switched on you don't get lights you are not getting any power to the tiller head, the meter should be reading voltage regardless of the condition of the control circuitry. My first scooter was a very old AMIGO, it sat in a barn for 20 yrs, this was anything but a dry environment.As a matter of fact i has to a power washer to clean the two inches of Chicken manure off it. This scooter was so old that it has an discrete component open controller board as opposed to fully potted and enclosed LSI based controllers we see on todays scooters. The engager in the tiller was oxidized, and had to be cleaned and dried out. I rinse the controller out with distilled water then put it in a preheated oven at 150 F for 24 hrs. WARNING make sure of the temperature some ovens will not go this low. The newer controllers are potted and enclosed, making them water resistant, they use LSI which are proprietary and can't be purchased or repaired. I liked older controllers because you could fix them.
What you got to do is what we call "chase the voltage" First you will need a 24v circuit tester
You may also need a VOM meter only $9
The problem is 24volts is either not getting to the tiller head or you have a broken wire in the tiller head. Start at the headlight make sure its switched on. Use the circuit tester, put the clamp to ground, use the probe to find the 24volts, The hot side is the side wired in series with the switch. The tester will light up when it has voltage. Chase the wire back through the system. When you get to a cable or anywhere you can't see the wires use the VOM meter, disconnect the scooters batteries leaving the power switch on. Set the meter to read resistance scale high scale, short the probes together, zero the meter. Put one probe at the headlight the other probe at the connector you think the wire ends up at. Normally every wire is a different combination of colors like red; with a white stripe. Most of the time a wire ends up at a connector and the color code doesn't change. So if you are not getting continuity on any of the pins on the connector you know its got to go, you've isolated the open circuit too the tiler head. Here's a test you can run! Turn headlight on, power on for scooter, disconnect scooter battery, place one probe at head light. Disconnect tiller cable. Probe each pin, one of them hast to cause the meter to deflect to zero. If if doesn't the problem is in the tiller head. When working with little wires i like to use crochet needles. You can use the meter to check cables each pin in must have a pin out. If you don't get continuity between pins the cable is bad toss it.

It may still be under warranty. What kind of reading did you get from the batteries? If they are below 12.0 volts they may have a poor memory. If you leave a chair un-charged for a long period of time the batteries can discharge to a very low level. The charger cannot bring a battery up from 11 voltsDC. You will need a slow car type charger or new batteries.

possibly burnt one of the motor brushes, you can remove the brush, and clean the face of the brush or put new brushes in

the click is the electric brakes releasing , most likly the problem you are having is the brushes in the motor may be shot cheap easy fix on each side of the motor there should be what looks like a flat head screw those are the brush covers remove them and check them replace as need , otherwise the motor may be shot

Seven beeps means faulty Throttle potentiometer or speed potentiometer fault. If using contact cleaner is not enough, that means that the faulty part must be replaced. The potentiometer is tested reading Ohms with a multimeter. Touch its contacts with multimeter probe set on Ohms while using the accelerator at the same time.Contact your authorized Pride Provider to get replacement part or to get a quote on repair.

I've been a tech for years, and sometimes any assumption that something is "good" can be the one thing that trips you up for awhile. This is a really tough problem, since you've done about all you can to solve it. Here's what I suspect...either the batteries don't have the same current capacity as the old ones, or they could be underengineered, or even defective. I've bought car batteries, on two occasions, that were bad, even though they swore they were good.
You'll have to get someone to test them for their load capacity, that's the only thing I can figure at this point. Not sure who will have this capability- you might call around to some service shops and see if they can help, or know someone who can.
If all the connections are good, and the motor is new, there just leaves the harness itself and the batteries to suspect.
Ensure the batteries are good, and then you will have to check the cables for load capability and integrity.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
