Yup you gt a code seven failure code, speed pot malfunction . What pots typically do is that they oxidise. This pt is aa variable rersistor that opeates between 0 - 30k ohms. When tuning the pot it shoud ram up and down smoothly. To test for this
You may also need a VOM meter only $9

Disconnect batteries from the scooter. Simply attach the multimeter to the pots terminals, select correct ohms scale and watch the needle. Th needle when turning the pot should movee gracefully up to 30k down to zero as the pot dial scooter speed increases. Faaailure is detected when the needle jumps around, the oxidation causes the pot to connect inteermitently. USE CRC CONTACT Cleaner to get the oxidation out of the pot. The potss are not sealed so there are little holes you can spray into. Use liberal of cleanner.

Flashing code 1, 3 speed pot fault


Usually turning the key off and removing it then re inserting the key and turning it back on without touching the paddle levers. If that doesn't fix it then the speed pot will need to be replaced.

Hi John.
The problem could be a worn throttle pot ( wig wag ). Next time you are driving the scooter, try moving the ends of the speed lever slowly up and down, instead of in or out as you normally use it. If the throttle pot is worn, moving the lever this way will make the machine speed up or slow down.
Another cause might be a faulty battery lead connector or a faulty motor connector.
Good luck. Neil.
