Try charging or replacing battery. Safely remove old fuel from fuel tank and add new fresh fuel with an additive like seafoam. And replace air filter. Check the spark plug. If it's carbureted try spraying carb cleaner directly in carb and try to start if it fires you have a carb issue or fuel issue. If not test for spark if no spark replace coil. I would assume it to be weak battery, bad fuel and a dirty carb.

50cc scooter repair


Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been idle for months or years and does not want to start you will have to deal with a few remedies:
1. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
2. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
3. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
4. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
5. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

Would not start after a time it started then died when i trided to rev engine up


Try pulling out your choke and not reving the engine if your engine fails to stay started depress the
choke and try again but this time jump on your bike and don't give the scooter two much gas and run it around a little bit, you might need to place some premium gas in it. I't could well be bad gas.
How long has the scooter been sitting?

Battery is charged, scooter is assembled, but when the key is turned on, the scooter and all gauges are dead


Has the scooter been sitting unused for a while? Will the horn honk when the scooter is connected to the charger?
If the batteries are charged and NO LIGHTS come on at all when you turn the scooter on, please check all of your connections, most importantly the fuses as your circuit may be incomplete.
If there was any power getting to the scooter at all, the lights would at least blink to let you know there was a problem.
When batteries sit for a while they will oxidize and go solid which may prevent them from getting a full charge. The charger shows them as full but it is just the current bouncing back from the solid core. Try replacing the batteries to see if that solves the problem, if not, contact the manufacturer.
Good luck!

My scooter has a code 31 that says has to be cleared before it will run. we were gone for several months, whe nI came home we charged it up but won't start has a code 31. Book says it has to be cleared to...


Sounds like you need new batteries. This code indicates a low battery condition.
If you have a digital voltmeter measure the voltage of each battery. Above 13 volts is best, 12 volts indicates a 50% charge. The total voltage when you add the two batteries together needs to be above 17 volts for the electronics to work.
Batteries that sit for several months may not take a charge. You can try charging them separately with a car charger set to gel/deep cycle setting to bring the voltage up. Make sure they are disconnected from the scooter and do this only for a short time, keeping your eye on them. The batteries may be too old and the plates sulfated by sitting too long.
A new set of U-1 batteries is my best recommendation. They are available locally and on line at a discount. If you install them your self you could save over $100 on the labor cost alone.
To clear the code install the new batteries and turn the scooter off and on. The code will clear itself when you disconnect the batteries. Charge the new batteries fully before use. Hope this helps.

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!

My electric scooter dont go when i pull the trigger


The batteries need to be charged. Even if the batteries are drain, the scooter will all ways be able to push it's own weight for a little bit. But, when you try to ride it the current draw goes up which the batteries are unable to supply because they dead. So, charge the batteries and you should be fine.

My brother's Vespa scooter fell over and won't start up again.


If it falls over and wont start it just gets flooded.
Simply remove the spark plug (inspection panel is behind your feet) and leave it sit for a half hour or so. Use the kickstart every now and then (with the scooter turned off). The excess fuel will eveporate and when the sparkplug is replaced it will start up but it will be smokey for a few minutes. Just leave it sit idling for a while to clear out.
