Not sure if this will help... however an altmeter will allow you to test along your electrics for any faults. You can check at the lights for example and throught the system.

SOURCE: can't charge my e-scooter

ok you do not need a new charger. the problem is you let the battery get too low. the battery has to have a little bit of power left in it to send to the charger, if it dosent then the charger can't tell if there is rilly a battery hooked up or not. you shuld probubly get a new battery. or you can email me and i will tell you a few things you could try to jump it back to life.

SOURCE: My Schwinn S-180 scooter won't charge

Check your charger with a meter and see if it is putting out the correct voltage for your scooter battery. If it is, you probably need a battery, probably so anyway after 2 years. Good luck!

Re: Pride Celebrity X. Batteries drain quickly despite new fully charged batteries. Also when scooter is turned off and in free-wheel, the brake engages after just a few feet. Have to on/off to reset

New Batteries must broken in, For the first 20 Charges, do not allow the power level to go below half way before recharging. Charge the batteries in a warm environment. Also, if charging in a cold environment the batteries won't get the best range. Batteries have 60% of their capacity when the temp. is 32 degree F. At 0 degrees F. the batteries will only have 40% of capacity. Batteries have shrinkage. Good news the capacity best at 80 degrees.
If the brake is hanging up, it will cause drain on the batteries. A sure sign is, if they are hanging up is after 10 min. of running the brake will be very hot to the touch. It sometimes turns the brake blue in color or rusty.
The brake engaging while in freewheel mode is supposed to be a safety, to keep run-a-ways from occurring. I agree with you it is aggravating when you try to push the scooter. Scooter Doctor App

Battery fully charged but not power to run

Measure the battery voltage individually. If each battery has less than 10 volts, charge them with an automotive style NON automatic battery charger.

My scooter will not fully charge

This could be the charger socket is worn and not making a good connection when charging or it could be the charger itself at fault. Now you have changed the batteries, I presume new and both the same type, you need to look at the charging side.

I have the Shoprider Delux scooter.I brought it second hand.I put in a new battery but its not holding the charge. I seem to have to charge it up before any trips out.When its fully charged and I go about...


When you say that you put in a new battery, I hope you mean new batteries. This particular scooter takes 2 batteries and just changing one will leave the remaining one in poor condition. Make sure that you have replaced the batteries with the correct size and type. This scooter takes 2, 40 amp hour batteries. Sealed gel AGM batteries are preferred. The batteries should have the number 40 on them with a date code. You need new, fresh batteries to have them work properly. A date code tag of A1 indicates the A month(1st month) or January of 2011 (1 is for 2011). If you are not sure of the battery condition a local shop can load test them for you.
There is a possibility with a 5 year old scooter that a worn motor/brake will cause excessive current draw and drain your batteries. A qualified technician can determine this for you with a service call.
Hope this helps.

The motor is screeching and barely moves. Started periodically, now is constant. Drains fully charged battery within minutes.

When the motor is screeching and draining the battery, that indicates that the motor has most likely seized up and is not turning the axle properly, which in turn will drain the batteries quickly as the scooter struggles to move. I strongly recommend discontinuing use of the scooter for your safety until the motor can be replaced; contact the manufacturer for a service call to fully diagnose the problem and give you a quote. If your insurance purchased the scooter for you, they may partially pay for the repair.
Good luck!

How to charge my panterra transport scooter,do i leave switch on or off and for how long?

tony you can charge it either way with switch on or off and if you have used the scooter alot during the day and the battery level lights are in the red charge overnight. The charger light will turn from yellow to green when the batteries are fully charged It really is a good idea to get into the habit of charging overnight wehn you have used the scooter all day. It helps the batteries to recycle them thru a charge cycle when they run down. Now if the scooter is used rarely then make sure it is fully charged when it stored and charge once a week when idle. Hope this helps you
