Question about Electric Mobility Merits Electric Wheelchair Scooter Battery Charger
Things to check: Drive/Free wheeling switch, brake release lever (this activates an internal micro-switch that enable power to the drive system, battery box connectors (condition of contacts - corroded, missing, loose. etc.); main control cable (corrosion. lose or missing pins, etc). If all these are OK, could be controller or drive control potentiometers (speed, forward, backward) on the handle-bar (tiller).

hi, ok you mentioned nothing about the charger, is it built in ? or stand alone charger, can you try another charger ??
If you have a Electrical meter tester check that the charging socket pins do actually connect to the batteries if not check the charging socket,
of the three charging pins two are the positive & negative so should show 24 volts the odd one out the one in the middle just below the other two is the inhibit , that is normally grounded otherwords negative.
Sound like a loose connection so please check all connections if you are sure the charger is ok.

This sounds she has tripped her circuit breaker. It works just like the one on your house, when you ask too much of it it suddenly goes 'pop' and seems to be dead.
Looks like you have the same scooter as mine, it should be a little white button on the back of the base. If you follow this link, it will give you a pdf version of the older model pride victory manual, (Mine is a three, they are up to about 10!) See fig. 8 on page 20 and 'Circuit Breaker' on page 21. Also, Page 33 has the troubleshooting info. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: the ammeter says its fully
I suspect this will be the batteries. The fact that the ammeter is working suggests the charger is charging the batteries. Just to be certain, the ammeter should start at a higher figure (i.e. 4 - 5 amps) the more discharged the batteries are, and should read zero when the batteries are fully charged. If this is the case, I think the charger and the ammeter are ok. The battery guage should also be ok as these do not usually move at all if they are broken. Batteries can take a, and even hold a charge for a certain period of time if they are weak, but under load, they cannot produce the desired amount of power. It sounds to me like this is your problem, but before you buy new batteries, have them checked properly as other things may be to blame, like a brake problem or even a motor or transaxle problem.

MKane I'm sure you checked the freewheel lever located under the right rear shroud to make sure it wasn't in freewheel. If its in drive mode are you hearing the brake click when you push in the throttle? Scooters are hard to troubleshoot because of all the different components used to make it go. It could be the throttle pot, the speed control pot, the cable going from the console to the rear of the scooter. Check the circuit breaker or fuse at the rear to make sure it hasn't popped. Check all your connectors at the rear to make sure none has come loose. Without being there this is the best I can do for you. You might contact your Provider where you got the scooter to see if they will check it for you Good Luck Hope this helps you
