Engine Scooter, throttle does not work

The throttle suddenly stopped working. When turning the throttle, nothing happens, the scooter does not go forward. The throttle appears to have no tension/friciton like before; feels loose on the handle. When turning the throttle, there is a small click, but nothing happens.

Scooter, when key is turned on the scotter jumps forward, the thottle is not in use, and the scooter is NOT IN GEAR, scarry


Your scooter may have lost its inhibit resistor 10k resistor that some scooters had on the center post of the throttle pot to stop this from happening. but the throttle has to be out of neutral position in order for it to move on startup. The throttle pots are normally 5k ohm pot, about 2.5k from the center to either outside posts. It would be wise to replace the speed control and the throttle together. Basically the controller thinks it is being told to go right at start up, that comes from the throttle.

Rascal Candy Apple. Why did it stop moving while I was driving it?


On the rascal, if your driving along and it suddenly stops, the throttle lever could be bad or the speed control could be bad or both. A battery lead maybe loose. The tiller cable may have slid back causing line interruption.
The flashing 4 indicates current timeout, the scooter may have been going up a steep hill, over heating the motor, turn off and allow motor to cool. then try again. if this happens on flat ground then check the parking brake, it maybe hanging up causing the motor to over work.

Throttle pot not working but no code light


It could also be the speed pot or a battery low voltage cut out indicating failing batteries.

Hope scooter will start but when I give it gas nothing happens


Trace the throttle cable from the handle to the(carb or throttle body).Either the cable is broken,it has come off at one end,or the throttle handle or a piece of linkage is broken or loose.(this is a pretty basic problem-you can do it!)

I have two electric razor 175 and put new batteries in both of them. After fully charging them all i hear is a click everytime turn the throttle but nothing,, anyone that can help please help


Thank you for choosing FixYa, I will be helping you today :)
When using an electric scooter, it's always important to know that you must advance on the scooter manually, and during this action, only then can you turn the throttle. The engine on an electric scooter is not powerful enough to move a person by itself.
Hope this helps, thank you :)

I have a ctm scooter the battries are charged fully when i switch on the scooter will not work switch off and on again it then will travel a few feet before stopping


I would say the throttle pot is slightly out of neutral allowing the scooter to travel slightly when turned on. Try moving the throttle lever slightly in the opposite direction to which the scooter is travelling (i.e. if the scooter moves forward when turned on, press the lever to go backwards, but only a small amount). If the scooter stops and you hear a clicking noise from the back of the scooter (this would be the brake clicking on) then that would be your problem. Would just need a small adjustment but best left to a dealer as it has to be sopt on! Sometimes scooters will not work if the throttle is slightly out but if its only a very small amount out of neutral, it might sometimes work in the manner you have suggested. We have come accross this fault on a few occasions. Hope this helps...
