Question about Pride Mobility Products GoGo Elite Traveller 4 Wheel Travel Scooter

1 Answer

No response at all from meter when switched on. Motor & battery known to be good by substitution.

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.

    Thank you very much for you assistance,having ascertained that all components and wiring up to the tiller head were ok I stripped this component and let myself loose with a meter,I subsequently found that the key switch had an internal fault. I have now replaced this and everything is working fine. Thanks again A.V.R.

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
http://www.amazon.com/OEM-25886-6-24V-Circuit-Tester/dp/B0014WIVX6

You may also need a VOM meter only $9
http://www.amazon.com/Mastech-YG188-Pocket-size-analog-multimeter/dp/B00064CH6A/ref=sr_1_8?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1339024102&sr=1-8

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.

Hi.

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.

I recently bought a used Precor 954i it worked fine then when i brought it home and wired it in with a 20amp breaker and 240 volt im getting error 29 as soon as i turn the machine on any ideas?


Precor Error 29, Excessive AC Input Current Probable Cause 1. The running belt and/or deck are badly worn.
2. Bad lower PCA.
3. Drive motor is shorted or de-magnetized causing a high power demand.
Corrective Action
  1. Check the amp draw using a clamp on AC volt-amp meter during loaded and no load conditions and compare values to a similar treadmill that is known to have a good running belt and deck. Replace the belt and/or deck if necessary. Don't forget, some units have a double sided deck which means it may be flipped over rather than replaced if it has an unused side.
  2. Test unit with a known good lower PCA. Replace lower PCA if necessary.
  3. Test unit with a known good drive motor. Replace drive motor if necessary.

Hola Ernesto, congratulation for your seccess,, thanks for the great support you had provideded to the community. I own a precor C934 have lower Controller, LPCA problem, and I would like to check if


Thank you brother.
That causes can be
1) optical infrared speed sensor is obstructed.
2) drive motor brusher are bad.
3) speed sensor position is incorrect
4) speed sensor potentiometer adjustment is incorrect
5) speed sensor is faulty.
6) lower PCA is bad
7) lower PCA to upper PCA interconnect cable is bad
8) upper PCA is bad
Remedies: vacuum the drive motor pay attention to speed sensor .
b) motor brusher do not make suffciente contact repair
c) adjust the speed sensor see the scheme attached.
d) locate the speed sensor potentiomente on the lower PCA.set the potentiometer in mid-range
e)measure voltage D.C. for 5vdc, two fo the leads will toggle between 0vdc-5 Vdc.as you rote the speed sensor.
f) substitute a known good lower PCS for determine g) substitute a known good interconnect cable h) substitute a known good upper PCA for determine if is faulty.
God bless you

Fan on my big buddy heater just stopped working changed batteries still not working?tried the switch nothing .i only have radiant heat.


I would first check the wiring connections to fan and get a multi meter , set on 12 volts dc and see if fan motor has 12 vdc input voltage.
Too cheap to buy a voltage tester at wal mart ot harbor frieght, you can use a 12 volt bulb and socket, if you already have one. Remove fan wires & hook up 12 volt light bulb & if it lights, you got the juice. Carefull,dont let live wires touch because you short out $26.00 big buddy fan transformer. work with fan transformer unplugged from wall and dont plug in until you sure no wires touch.
use electrical or duct tape. electrical tape better.

otherwise,just buy the multi meter, they only $8.00 to $10.00
read & understand instructions, before you try to use it. otherwise,you could burn out your new meter.

well worth owning &
learning to use multi meter. I use it thousands of times.

if fan motor has juice but wont run, check fan shaft to see if it turns freely or scrapes or is stuck. oil fan motor bearings ,change the brushes.
make sure that the fan blades are not touching the fan housing and can turn freely.
if it still dont work, buy new fan motor.
if no juice at fan motor, check mr heater switch with the power off,unplug transformer from the wall or remove batteries.,
and use the ohm meter setting of the multi- meter to test for continuity of the switch when the switch is in the on position.
power must be off when using the ohm setting of a multimeter.
if power is on & using the ohm setting of the multi meter, you will blow out the multimeter. The ohm setting uses a 1.5 volt dc battery inside the multimeter to test for a compleated circuit.
so, 12volts dc would blow it out on ohms setting.
TESTING FOR OUTPUT OF FAN TRANSFORMER OR BATERY PACK.
If the switch is good,reinstall it on mr.heater and test the output of the transformer or battery compartment using the 20 volt dc scale of the multi meter. the voltage scale you select ,must be higher than the voltage you expect to find ,in order to avoid damage to the multi meter.
observe polarity,positive to red and negative to black.

the dc voltmeter setting is totally polarity sensitive and a reversed hook up could blow out the meter.
multi meter means it can read ac volts, dc volts,ohms and dc amps. Read and understand the included instructions before using a multi meter
a good single battery in new condition reads 1.62volts dc
1.5 vdc is almost dead, a good used battery reads 1.58 to 1.6 vdc
below 1.58 vdc is weak battery and 1.48 vdc is usually totally dead, but may be enough for momentary usage under 1 minute.

The horn is not working on my 2003 F150. Where is the fuse for this model. Could ther be any other issues.


Could be the clock spring, the relay or the horns themselves.

Pull the horn relay, and jumper the normally open contacts. The horn relay is in the BJB ( aka Battery Junction Box / Engine compartment fuse panel ). It is BJB half size relay 205.

Pull the relay, and using the diagram below to jumper the normally open contacts.

If this works, next is to test the coil operation, which are pins #1 & #2. Pin #1 should be the power from BJB Fuse #7, pin #2 is ground from the horn switch via the clock spring on the steering wheel.
Use a meter to test from pin #1 to a known good ground ( i.e. neg side of the battery or a factory ground lug on the fender ).
If you have + DC on that pin, next is to test the ground pin in the relay socket. Using a meter with DC-V from pin #2 to the + side of the battery, have someone press the horn switch on the steering wheel. If this tests OK, could be a problem with the relay. You can swap the fog lamp relay ( 206 ) or the trailer tow backup lamp relay ( 203 ) into this position to test with.
You can also bench test the relay by applying power and ground to pins #1 & #2 and a meter set to resistance on pins #3 & #5. The resistance should be less than 100 ohms with power applied to pins #1 & #2.

I have just fitted new battery to my pride sonic but will only move very slowly even at maximum speed adjustment


Hi. Did you fit one battery or two new ones. It never pays to fit only one battery.
Have you checked for a high/low switch, sometimes called indoor/outdoor switch.
Check motor and battery connectors.
Check motor current ( amps ) with an amp meter to see if the motor is faulty.
Check brake unit is not causing drag on the machine.
Good luck. Neil.

Can`t find the breaker for the wiper motor on my 2002 jeep cherokee


The power distribution center is on the left side of the engine compartment near the front. The wiper relay is in there and it could have failed and not the fuse. The wiper fuse is in the same area. You can substitute the wiper relay with another one that has the same part # in the dist. center box. That is if the fuse is good. Lastly, don't assume the fuse is good when you look at it. Test it with an ohm meter or use a known good or new fuse.
Good luck, Rudy
