Back wheels make a loud clicking noise
Hi. Loud clicking noises from the rear wheels are usually caused by movement of the square steel key that fits into a groove on the axle inside the wheel hub. This is what drives the wheels.
You will probably get a click for each revolution of the wheels.
To fix it, remove the rear wheels and wipe a thin smear of grease on the key and axle, then replace the wheels.
The grease will allow the key to move slightly without making a noise, and help stop it from wearing.
It sometimes helps to also remove the front wheels, and wipe a thin smear of grease onto the front stub axles. There is no key in the front hubs, but the grease helps to prevent the bearings siezing on to the axles.
Good luck. Neil.

When pluged in to charge scooter, will not charge
Possibly your charger
or batteries or main 10 Amp fuse
Pride may tell you (as they told me) that it doesn't have one, nevertheless I found mine below the floor hatch under the foot mat ... and? It was blown. It's a standard 10 Amp car fuse, it cost a few cents and the problem was fixed.
The provider had said that it was definately my batteries and that he would replace them at €157.00 He didn't seem interested when I told him that they were already new! " One of them will be faulty then" he said.
Find that fuse, it's not in the tiller fuse box - but please don't forget that there is a risk of a power short or a bad electric shock be very careful and/ or get an electrician's help.

I have a new Pursuit xl with a loud howell from the transaxle
This is very likely to be a binding hand brake, with a bit of help you can check this. IT IS NOT DIFFICULT BUT IF YOU DOUBT YOUR ABILITY GET A QUALIFIED MECHANIC TO DO THE FOLLOWING;
First loosen the rear right centre wheel nut ONLY and then carefully raise the back wheels off the ground and place blocks securely under the chassis frame.
Continue undoing the central wheel nut (only) and remove the rear right wheel and small axel key. With the scooter securely raised and all hands, clothing and obstructions out of harm's way switch on the scooter and use the wigwag to run the motor. With luck the noise will have gone, in which case it very probably was a binding brake pad, possibly caused by a dry, sticky cable or rusty or dry parts.
Try a spot of cable/ leaver lubrication (WD40), do NOT get grease or oil on the brake pads or on the wheel drum, clean these with a dry brush and rags. After lubrication work the hand brake leaver until it feels free and the lever returns fully.
Reassemble the right rear wheel onto the stub axel matching the groves exactly then tap the key back into the matching slot.
Test while the wheel is still off the ground, with luck the noise (which may also sound like cyclical scraping) will have gone.
NOTE! If you have any doubt about your ability to do this safely, have your brakes serviced - any good car or motorcycle mechanic would be able to thoroughly do this in about 30 minutes.

Why won't my pride legend start?
The legend has a Curtis controller. The flash codes you provided points the problem to a faulty throttle pot. If a new throttle does not fix the issue, then your problem is the controller itself.
