Question about Pride New Mobility Legend 4 Wheel Scooter
IT OPERATES FINE AND THE LED ISN'T FLASHING AND THE FUSES ARE INTACT,
IT IS A 2 YR, OLD PRIDE VICTORY 4 WHEEL MOBILITY SCOOTER
The buzzer is a piezo-electric device that is the "horn" for the scooter. It also will alert when the scooter is in reverse, if this option is programmed into the scooter. It receives its power from the PC board or console board which is located inside the top of the shroud at the tiller, where the thumb paddles that direct the scooter are located. If liquids have reached the board, or if condensation has affected the board, the circuit that controls the buzzer may have shorted causing it to come on constantly.
Opening the top of the shroud is fairly simple. Remove about 6 screws holding the clamshell cover together, remove the speed adjust knob, and it should come apart. Inside you'll see a PC (printed circuit) board, green in color with lots of small electronic parts embedded on it. The buzzer is also inside, usually about the size of a marshmallow and black in color with tiny holes to let the noise escape. There will be two wires leading from the buzzer to the plug-in at the PC board. Unplug the buzzer and the noise will stop, but you won't have use of the "horn" at all. Replacing the PC board can be done by a certified Pride tech, but it will probably cost you about $150.00 for parts and labor.
Hope this helps.

In electronic equipment, it is often a capacitor (One of those electronic thingies in the control box.) that begins to fail and results in a high pitch noise (Oscillation) that will drive you crazy. They still operate correctly but over time they will totally fail. Unfortunately this may require a technician to assist. Happy scooting. Regards Chris… email@example.com
