Mobility scooter stops dead. I turn key off and back on it will go again then stop

I have not tried anything. I put 2 new batteries in it 2 weeks ago.It has been running great until today.I was riding it and it just stopped. The battery light that tells you how charged the battery is was still reading full. I turned the key off and back on. It took off again for about 30 ft and quit again. after doing this a few more times I made it home. About 5 minute ride. Put it on the charger. Tried to go out again a few hrs later. It quit before I got to the sidewalk.

Check your battery terminals are tight. It sounds as though they have come loose, or you didn't do them tight enough when you changed batteries. Perhaps clean the terminals both on the leads and the batteries, and finish with a wipe of Vaseline to keep water at bay. Good luck.

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: harley davidson battery went dead after riding

1.What?

2.What?
You charged the battery off of the battery charger with a trickle charge. The battery wouldn't charge while you're riding, because your alternator took a cr@p.
(Sorry if I seem gruff, but I'm an old biker, and Harleys are all I ride. I'm also a Harley mechanic.
Shhhh! I don't want that to get around! lol!)

3.Battery is at 13.4 volts now? What is the specific gravity of the acid in each cell? Don't have a hydrometer? Do you have a load tester? No? Since you measured the voltage, do you have a multimeter?

Test the voltage with the bike running. It should be around 14.6 volts when charging, less with the battery fully charged.
Don't get the correct reading, then you better look at alternator replacement. (Regulator is built in)

Sounds like your charging system is not charging the battery.

Put a volt meter on the battery, run the engine up to maybe 2,000 RPM. The voltage must be at least 13.8V, but not more than 14.5.

If that is all OK, your battery is worn out, and is not holding sufficient reserve. It would need to be replaced.

2)Your brake lock and unlock leaver under your seat..be sure its totally engaged in the locked position in other words ''all the way pushed down''.
3)Take the shroud off the back, this can be done by removing the seat, hold the seat leaver up towards you ,Now you should be able to rotate the seat when you have lifted that leaver when it does rotate lift up the seat it will come off.now that the seat,the shroud are off. you will be able to see the battery's make sure the connections are good and tight...
4)Tilt the scooter over on its side there is a grayish white cable this is your front-to-rear cable follow it from the front to the back ,make sure there is no cut or broken spots'which would be a spot on the cable that looks as if its been scraped against the ground .If there is a brake in that cable it will need replacement.
* Put the shroud and the seat back on the scooter if everything checks out ,Get on the scooter turn the key make sure that needle goes all the way to fully charged mark go slow tap the top of the console if it stops faster than it did before or doesn't at all your looking at a new key switch.



hope i was helpful good luck.

Lil rascal stopped again


make sure you hands are not touching the forward or reverse lever when you insert the key. many times if you have your finger or thumb touching the lever just a tid, the scooter will only move a little then stop, or not work at all. this is a safty. Usally I change out the throttle pot and the Key switch (speed pot) together. As for the price, He didn't over charge you if the 150.00 included his labor. Ask if he can replace the throttle if the product is less then 30 days old. But be prepaird to pay shipping and his labor for replacing the first one.

I own a pride mobility scooter with an issue of stopping


It could be a loose battery connector and the controller heats up when it's trying to pull amperage out of the batteries but can't because of the loose connection Try tightening bolts on batteries but disconnect them first. Also it could be the brake on the motor and if the unit isn't shutting off the lights on the tiller blink in patterns to let you know what problems to check for.
