Question about Pride New Mobility Legend 4 Wheel Scooter
This is older rascal 655(model and serial number are missing) that runs great (8mph) accept when going up a hill that it should climb the motor shuts down. Motor makes a click and then all electronics shut off. No lights, no nothing. Motor is not warm to the touch. Batteries are fully charged, 1 year old. (batteries are interstate DCM0035 12v 35ah x2) If i turn the key off for about 1 minute and back on every thing works. If i try to keep climbing it will go for several seconds and shut down again. I have cleaned all electrical plugs under chassis and terminals are clean and tight. The click sound it makes when motor shuts down sounds like a solenoid disengaging.
The batteries could be the problem, is it possible to try some other batteries, silly question , how steep is this hill ? remember scooters cannot climb steep hills as the motor will shut down due to the increased load.
1 Year old batteries ok ? but if they get used on a non daily basis and are not fully charged after use, I would question the batteries but again the motor could be overloading,
How much do you weight ? sorry for the personal question but it all loads the motor and that increases the current and that will cause the motor controller to shut it down.
