The speed pot is the knob you use to go from turtle to rabbit. You can go to the website of the manufacturer to get a service manual

I have a pride go go ultra x scooter... I purchased it, and it had no top dash at all... I put a new throttle pot, and a whole new dash assembly... It runs great... Then I turn the speed pot to fast......


7 flash code is: Throttle control fault.

1. Check wiring for open/short circuits.
2. Check the throttle set-up.... The ohms should be very close to each other when placed checking forward and reverse on set up.

How do you fix the 7 beep on go go


Jul 26, 2012 Yup you got a code seven failure code, speed pot malfunction . What pots typically do is that they oxidise. This pot is a 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 move gracefully up to 30k down to zero as the pot dial scooter speed increases. Failure 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.

I have a gogo three wheeler and some times when i turn on the switch the scooter will not move, but when i turn the switch off and on two or three times it will work and some times the horn will start...


The go go controller has a controller which will give you a specific beep code to indicate the problem with your scooter. From what you are describing, it seems that the throttle potentiometer is out of neutral at start-up. The controller needs to electrically sense the throttle pot is in neutral (center of left and right) to start. By turning the scooter on and off you are jiggling the pot enough to get it to zero out(go to neutral).
Please get back to me with the exact model of the go go and with the exact number of beeps in the error code and I will be able to diagnose the problem in a more definitive way.
The most common error codes involve the throttle pot out of neutral at start-up and the brake freewheel lever is in freewheel.
You can see if the throttle pot is out of neutral by moving it slightly in either direction with one hand and turning the scooter off and on with the other hand. If the scooter works by this slight adjustment of the pot, then this part needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Golden Companion Scooter not moving - diagnosed via owner manual


Hi. Many scooters will display this fault code if the potentiometer is not exactlly centred when you turn on the key. The pot is not always faulty. Some scooters also have a smaller additional pot to controll the speed. If this pot is faulty it will cause the same fault code. Any other switches such as indoor/ outdoor switches. I have had a few machines fitted with curtis controllers where the fault is in the controller.
Check the wiring and plugs and connectors.
Good luck. Neil.
