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).
Good luck!

SOURCE: 230 chauffeur doesn't charge. Batteries new and

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.

SOURCE: electric mobility scooter says charge is full but won't run

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.

SOURCE: battery shows charged, meter shows green but the

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

The batteries need charging and when you plug in the charger and the power is on the lights wil flash indicating that the charger is plugged in. Now look at the rear of the chair near where the charger cord plugs into the chair and you should see a voltmeter. With the charger plugged in the voltmeter will indicate about 5-6 amps and after charging overnight the voltmeter should be reading 0 amps. If when you plug in the charger cord and the voltmeter indicates 0 amps then I would suspect that the charger is not working or that the fuse is blown in the charger circuit. The only way to see if the batteries charge would be to borrow or find an offboard charger that will plug into the charger port located under the front of the joystick and after charging for 10-12 hours see if the battery level lights show full charge Hope this helps

The green light on your charger indicates a full charge but you know thats not right since you didn't charge the batteries when they were in storage they have dropped so low the charger cannot detect them and provide a charge. The batteries will need to be replaced with new ones. Charge before use and charge for at least 20 days to get them operating at 100% now you will have to use it for those 20 days to get the batteries used to charging charge every night when you go to bed and unplug when you get up in the morning. If you do have to leave the chair for a week or so put up fully charged and charge once a week overnight. If you put the chair in storage again disconnect the batteries from the chair and store with a full charge. Hope this helps you

Battery is charged, scooter is assembled, but when the key is turned on, the scooter and all gauges are dead


Has the scooter been sitting unused for a while? Will the horn honk when the scooter is connected to the charger?
If the batteries are charged and NO LIGHTS come on at all when you turn the scooter on, please check all of your connections, most importantly the fuses as your circuit may be incomplete.
If there was any power getting to the scooter at all, the lights would at least blink to let you know there was a problem.
When batteries sit for a while they will oxidize and go solid which may prevent them from getting a full charge. The charger shows them as full but it is just the current bouncing back from the solid core. Try replacing the batteries to see if that solves the problem, if not, contact the manufacturer.
Good luck!

Check the owner's manual for the location of the reset switch. It is usually located under the rear engine cover/shroud. Contact the maunfacturer's tech support line for troubleshooting assistance over the phone.
Has the scooter been stored for a while? If so, your batteries need to be replaced. The batteries contain a gel that needs to have current run through it on a regular basis (at least 8 hours once a week) or it will solidify. If you attach the charger, what will most likely happen is the green light will either stay green or go to green after a very short time. The charger will indicate the batteries are full, but instead of being full of pwer, they are full of crud. Your insurance may still cover the replacement if you can wait for the process to go through. Otherwise, you will need to replace the batteries on your own. Good luck!
