Electric mobility scooter says charge is full but won't run

My mom's scooter has no power. When the charger is plugged in an outlet, the light that says "run" on the charger lights up. When the charger is plugged into the outlet then into the scooter the "full" light is on indicating the scooter is fully charged, but the scooter has no power. The lights, horn, blinkers, and motor do not work. What could it be? The charging cord has three prongs where it connects to the scooter. On the inside of the scooter behind the charging outlet, only two wires come out of the outlet. The prong without a wire is the ground, right? Is it just a dead battery? thank you.

This sounds she has tripped her circuit breaker. It works just like the one on your house, when you ask too much of it it suddenly goes 'pop' and seems to be dead.

Looks like you have the same scooter as mine, it should be a little white button on the back of the base. If you follow this link, it will give you a pdf version of the older model pride victory manual, (Mine is a three, they are up to about 10!) See fig. 8 on page 20 and 'Circuit Breaker' on page 21. Also, Page 33 has the troubleshooting info. Hope this helps.

Hi. Most chargers should be connected to the scooter first before plugging into the wall socket. The charger senses the battery voltage to regulate itself. Your other answer suggested the circuit breaker, and this might be correct. Sone times the circuit breaker blowing can mean there is other faults such as a faulty motor. Many mobility scooters have plugs and sockets on the battery leads, and most are too light to carry the high currents. I have removed these from many machines and connected the leads straight to the batteries.

The third pin in the charger plug is to disable the controller in the scooter while the charger is connected.Good luck. Neil.

Check the freewheel lever. When it is in the neutral position, its like a car in neutral gear. The lights will go on but nothing will happen when you touch the accelerator. The freewheel lever is at the back of the scooter, near the wheels. I hope that is what the problem is as it is the easiest and fastest problem to fix.

Is it best to keep my scooter on charge all the time or what


Lead acid or deep cycle gel batteries are best kept on trickle charge.

Take care of your batteries
How do I get the most life out of my new batteries?
To maximise the life of your batteries, it is best to complete a full charge for the first 1015 times that you use your scooter. This simply means however far you travel, do not just top-up for a short while, but complete the full charge cycle every time. Your batteries will not work at their best until this process has been carried out and will prolong power and performance. You will find the distance your scooter can travel will gradually increase over its first few weeks as your batteries reach optimum efficiency.
When is it best to charge my batteries?
After 10-15 cycles have been completed, a normal charging routine can be adopted
  • Depending on the capacity of the batteries, the charge time can vary up to a maximum of 16 hours
  • The charger will automatically shut down when the batteries are fully charged, so you do not have to worry about switching it off. This is ideal for overnight charging.
  • Whenever possible try to avoid interrupting a charge cycle. It is always best to complete a full charge cycle as excessive short term charging is detrimental to battery life.
  • For the very best results and to maximise battery life, charge fully before and after use.
  • Please refer to charger indicator lights for battery status.

How do I store and maintain my batteries?
  • If your scooter will not be used for a while or is being stored, make sure the batteries are fully charged first.
  • If your scooter is not being used, make sure the batteries receive a refresher charge every 14 weeks. Alternatively if you are planning not to use your scooter for over 6 weeks, fully charge your batteries and then disconnect.
  • Fully charge the batteries before re-use.
  • Never leave the batteries in a discharged state.
  • Avoid damp, hot or cold extremes when storing your scooter.
  • Batteries are totally sealed and do not require any maintenance apart from charging.

Charging
1.Switch off your scooter and remove key.
2.Plug charger into scooter charge socket.
3.Push charger plug into wall socket and switch socket on.
4.There will be a light sequence on the charger but as all chargers are different, refer to charger instructions.
5.Most scooters will have an inhibit mode which will shut down all the scooters electrics while the charger is plugged in.
6.Only use the charger supplied with your scooter.
7.Do not smoke or use a ***** flame while batteries are being charged.
8.Do not leave charger plugged into your scooter when the charger is switched off as this may discharge your batteries.
9.For a complete charge do not switch off, unplug or interrupt the charge cycle until it is complete.
It is worth considering that in extreme cold weather the time your batteries take to charge can increase by up to 20%. The range of your scooter will also vary based on weather conditions. Also when your batteries reach the end of their useful life, you will find that charging time will become much shorter. The amount of charge the batteries can hold will become less and less as will your scooter range until ultimately they become unusable.

Trouble with new batteries losing charge. I also purchased a new charger. It will run for awhile a couple of weeks then it will just keep losing power and just stop.


Number 1, always charge after every use. You can check if the charger is charging quickly, by turning on the scooter and watching the gauge when you plug the charger in. The gauge should climb up if it does not move then charger is not working. Make sure the charger is plugged into an outlet that is not shut off with a light switch!

Scooter won't move


Things to check: Drive/Free wheeling switch, brake release lever (this activates an internal micro-switch that enable power to the drive system, battery box connectors (condition of contacts - corroded, missing, loose. etc.); main control cable (corrosion. lose or missing pins, etc). If all these are OK, could be controller or drive control potentiometers (speed, forward, backward) on the handle-bar (tiller).
Good luck!

Hi do you need to turn on key to charge up battery on a wheeltech mobility scooter i just purchased with no manual thanks


No, you don't need to turn on the key to charge. Just plug in the charger and turn on the charger if there is an on/off switch on it. The charger indicator and the scooter meter will read full when the scooter is fully charged. Hope this helps.

Has the scooter been stored unused for a while? If so, the batteries may have gone solid from improper maintenance. There is a gel inside the batteries that needs to have current run through it at least once a week to keep them fluid. The charger is showing a green light because it senses the batteries are full, but instead of being full of power, they are full of crud and need to be replaced again. If the batteries have been properly charged but you still cannot get power, check all your connections to make sure they are tight and that your fuses are not blown.
Good luck!
