    Hi I did try to clean all the contacts and make sue all the fuses and connections were good and tight I am wondering if i may have ruined the batteries they were both brand new and i let them run down very low before i recharged them now the meter says they are full and the horn works and i can hear the click as it goes into gear but the motor wont start someone told me they may get the voltage but not have the proper amperage to start the motor I could not use the charge that came with the scooter i had to charge them with my big charger one at a time and then they did take a fill charge and read 12.7 on my voltmeter i do not want to replace the batteries unless i knew that was the only problem thanks for any help

Hi, that noise could be a relay clicking off inside the motor controller because the brake on the motor has failed to release,

It quite a common problem and the only way to be 100% sure is try a replacement brake unit.

    Update, check the connections from the motor controller to the brake unit on the motor, if there is a resistance buildup (connection not clean) or bad connection , the controller will mistake this for a fault.

    hi , you say you can hear a click, that 's is the relay within the motor controller, clicking because it most likely having a problem with the magnetic brake on the side of the motor, I suggust you first trace back the cable from the brake , check the connections of this cable, normally it's a bad connection from the frame to the rear part of the scooter that causing the brake not to activate fully, that is setting up a error situration within the controller, In a similar situration I bypass the connection part and that sorted the problem.



    Good Luck.

Stopped going when free wheel lever accidently pushed forward. Put back. Still wont start.


Check for error codes. Move free wheel lever in and out a few times in case the brake micro switch is not making correctly.
Check speed control is not turned down low.

Power not going to solenide drive motor


hi, you need to check where the rear axle comes away from the main frame , the connections here are known to create problems,

Can you hear the brake unit clicking ?

remove the wheel, then remove the brake unit normally fixed by three phillip screws ,please take care not to damage the heads , now disconnect the brake unit but not the wiring, power on and move the throttle lever , does the motor turn ? then it's your brake unit that faulty or the wiring leading to it so check that out, in rare cases the controller has created a fault therefore not powering the brake so the motor cannot turn.

Motor still does not turn, then it either the output stage of the controller that's faulty or the motor itself which again is rare.


Please leave feedback if the advice helps.

Wrangle is fully charged, powers up ok, when trying to move you can hear the brake release but will not move in either direction.


bqsmc Dang scooters are a mess to troubleshoot because there are so many things that have to work to make it run. Well the brake energizing means you are getting power to the brake but the problem could be the throttle pot, or the speed control pot or the motor itself. To eliminate the motor disconnect the motor connector from the wiring harness and with two jumper wires supply 12 volts to the red and black wires in the plug. (you can jumper from one of your batteries) and the brake wires (2 smaller black wires) you might try jumping the brake first to see if the 12 volts will energize it. If not you will have to supply 24 volts the brake to energize it. If you get the brake energized then supply voltage to the motor leads and it should turn (Block the rear wheels off the ground) If it doesn't then bad motor. If it turns then reconnect the connectors. And then order a speed pot and throttle pot and replace both in the console Hope this helps

My dad has a pride legend and the motor gets hot and stops working. I removed the motor and took to a motor rewind place but it tests out perfect. The transaxle seems ok and now I am wondering about the...


Cody yep that could be the problem. When you engage the throttle do you hear a click from the electric brake? Its possible that the brake pad is stuck to the motor casing and causing friction thereby creating the heat you feel. Now you can't just remove the brake cause the controller looks for it to let the scooter move. You can however take the brake assemblt off the motor and tie it to the frame and see if that sloves the problem Be careful not to break the wiring to the brake. If that works and dad doesn't use any ramps (He won't have any brakes to stop him on an incline) Then he can use the scooter like that until you can replace the brake. He must be careful cause only the motor will stop his forward progress when he releases the throttle. Did Medicare buy his scooter? If so contact a provider or a service company and Medicare will pay for most of the repair. Hope this helps you

Pride Celibrity 3 wheel electric scooter. The motor isn't working


the click is the electric brakes releasing , most likly the problem you are having is the brushes in the motor may be shot cheap easy fix on each side of the motor there should be what looks like a flat head screw those are the brush covers remove them and check them replace as need , otherwise the motor may be shot

Pride Sonic Scooter


You can check the voltage going to the motors. The clicking you hear is the brake releasing. most likely, I bet water or something got on the controls and the signal is not getting to the controller. I hope its not the controller, they list for around $350.
