Question about Pride Pursuit Xl Heavy Duty 4-wheel Electric Scooter

1 Answer

Blue light on battery condition meter is blinking. It doesn't stop.

After getting caught in the rain, the scooter will not charge. The charger just shuts down. Now the little blue light on the batter meter is constantly blinking. There's no mention of this in the manual. Does anyone know what this means?

Hi the blue light is indicating a fault, now count the flashes before a pause, or does it just flash all of the time ?

Please keep me updated.

Regards

SOURCE: Scooter has full charge but still won't go.

It probably means that the connections or wiring from your battery are loose or broken. When you add the extra current required to run the motors, the voltage is being lost. Monitor the battery voltage with a meter while trying to drive the scooter will prove this.

SOURCE: I have a pride victory xl8. Problem - was running

All scooters have a protection system built in to prevent burning up the motor, and the user, should the scooter overheat. It sounds like yours overheated. If the temp. outside was warm to hot, and your weight is near the weight limit for the scooter, and you are taxing the motors over a hill, or unstable terrain, then the scooter goes into "limp home mode", or just enough to get you a bit aways, and then it will turn off. After a few minutes to cool off, it will go again, but shut down fairly quickly because it takes a spell to let the whole transaxle-motor assembly to get cool.

Check your weight, and anything else you may be carrying with you on the scooter. Check the terrain, and incline you are going against. Throttle down for all these occassions. If you overloaded the system at some point, then you may have overheated the brushes. Remove them (2) with a standard screwdriver and see if the copper coil is still flexible and springy. If not, replace it/them.

The damage may already be done, so it may need a new motor/transaxle assembly. An expensive proposition I'm afraid.

It is pretty common for the meters on the charger to either not work at all, or give an inaccurate reading. They get bounced and dropped, and they aren't that well built to begin with. Basically, just ignore the charger as long as you are getting a full charge out of it, and getting good distance with each charge.

My scooter will not work even when i put the key in the3 ignation it does absolutely nothing not even a click i got a spark and he checked all the fuses and every thing is normal it just wont turn on


Number one make sure your harness connections are good. Then check with a meter that power is going in the controller. Check output of the controller. If you are near the controller look for fuses. Scooter Doctor App

hi, if the blinking light never stops blinking that can imply a fault with the charger but first make sure the connections to the batteries are clean and tight.

I have new batteries and charger but batteries will not charge


If your battery is totally flat some chargers see this as connecting to a short and will not charge. If the battery has a charge run it down some, my batteries often don't take much of a charge if any. Does the charger light up.Does the charger have any fuses on its out put wiring. Open the charger up, do you see fuses. When the charger is on do you see any blinking lights. If you get a blinking yellow light when hooked to a battery there is something wrong with the battery. Hope this helps

Low hour, RASCAL 600 has been in clean safe storage with new batteries won't charge, no amp meter reading, no fuel gauge reading, yet charger itself has red and green light showing. If and when the...


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

Batteries won't charge


Hi. Sounds like there is a faulty connection somewhere between the charger and the batteries. Are the batteries connected correctly. The charger uses the voltage level in the batteries to regulate itself. If there is a faulty connection, then the charge will not operate. Use a multi-meter to check if the batteries are connected correctly. There should be 24 to 26 volts across both batteries.
This fault can also be caused by a faulty charger socket. Check for any signs of melting or heat damage. There might also be a disconnected wire in the plug on the charger itself.Good luck. Neil.

My mobility scooter batteries are put on charge but the charger green light to indicate that they are chaged no longer lights up


hi, now that could be one of three problems,

1. first check the charger ,is it possible to try the charger on another scooter ?
2. The batteries will no longer accept a charge ,this creates a fault condition with the charger. (try these batteries on another scooter if possible).
3. the actual charger plug in, you need to check the pins here , just the outside ones with a electrical meter, no voltage implies a bad connection to the batteries.
