A flash code of 7 indicates a bad speed potentiometer. In my experience, it may indicate a bad throttle potentiometer also.I would try testing both parts(described in answers elsewhere) and replacing as necessary. Hope this helps.

  • What that flash code indicates that there is that the battery voltage is to high to operate the scooter. This can happen for a number of reasons and from out of no where. The manual says you should contact GoGo for this problem. But I know a couple things to try and if they do not work then you need to contact GoGo.
  1. First remove the battery connectors for 5 full minutes and see if that resets it.
  2. You may have a wire that got caught up somewhere so check all wires for breaks in the insulation, cracks etx.
  3. Check the fuse as well.
  4. Push in the main circuit breaker reset button (see diagram)


  • Here is the GoGo Pride Scooter website should you need to contact them and if what I listed does not work then you need to. The things I list are some at home troubleshooting tips GoGo does not offer. They say to contact them immediately.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

SOURCE: my dad's pride celebrity scooter has new

Hi. The batteries for these things seem to go bad rather quickly when they are not used, but here is something to try..... So called "smart chargers" are what everything is going to. They analyze the condition of the battery and if everything is good, charge it. If everything is not good, according to the parameters of that charger, they don't. My suggestion is to take the battery out of the unit and try an old-fashioned analog battery charger for a little while, set to the proper voltage for the battery, of course, and monitored closely to measure the effects. If the batteries seem to take a charge, put them back in and run it a bit, then try the on-board charger again, just don't wait until the batteries are completely drained this time.

SOURCE: what makes the speed pot go bad on a 3 wheel celebrity x scooter

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.

Battery Not Holding a Charge

Mobility scooter batteries can encounter problems, as over time, these batteries age and lose some of their effectiveness, until eventually they stop working completely. In this case, battery replacement represents the only thing that owners can do to fix the problem. Before doing so, however, they should perform some other troubleshooting measures to make sure. For collapsible scooters, seat the battery properly when unfolding the scooter for use. Owners should also make sure to properly connect the battery, while also looking for any error messages or flashing lights displayed on the scooter's dashboard.

Why won't it operate?

How many flashes on green light. Count them and you should find in the trouble shooting section of your user manual what the problem is. Most cases you can sort yourself.

My Zip'r 4 is flashing the green light 7 times which means, "A throttle fault has occurred." The Throttle seems to be working fine, How do i fix this issue?

One of the cells of the battery seems to be bad. Though you charge it, and it shows full charge, but at the time of using the throttle the kinetic power is not there. I recommend that you take the battery to battery ware house so they can confirm the problem. If the problem is not with the battery then the issue is with the circuitry, but most likely it is the cranking power of the battery, though it is fully charged, but it get exhausted right away..

Getting an error code of flashing 9 times then pause then flashing

Pride Mobility Products Corp Product Owners Manuals Specification Sheets Click on "Celebrity X"

9-flash usually indicates a blown controller. The larger pride scooters are known for blowing controllers and having melt-downs when they are pushed or towed too fast. EVEN WITH THE KEY OFF the controller still monitors the safety systems. If the system detects a "roll-away" situation, the controllers turn on and go into dynamic braking mode in attempt to slow or stop the scooter. If the scooter is being towed or pushed and this happens, the scooter tries to stop the motion, overheats and burns up. Catastrophic failure and 9-flashes will result.
Best regards
