You can check the voltage going to the motors. The clicking you hear is the brake releasing. most likely, I bet water or something got on the controls and the signal is not getting to the controller. I hope its not the controller, they list for around $350.

Pride Celebrity x. Batteries drain quickly despite new full charged batteries. When scooter is pushed in freewheel- brakes engage every few feet. Have to turn scooter on/off to get brakes to release.


hi Diane, the brake engaging is by design, distance is the key here

Have you tried another charger ?

1. when pushing the scooter in freewheel before the brake engages , is it easy to push ? what can happen is the brake does not release 100%, a easy test is to run the scooter then put your hand on the brake unit , is it hot ? be careful because it could be very hot , this will prove the brake is not releasing fully.

Rob

Stopped going when free wheel lever accidently pushed forward. Put back. Still wont start.


Check for error codes. Move free wheel lever in and out a few times in case the brake micro switch is not making correctly.
Check speed control is not turned down low.

Altea 4 mobility scooter battery problem


hi, the battery's sound okay, have you made sure the scooter not in free wheel mode ? check the lever attached to the side of the brake ,,,

Check the wiring going to the axle .. At worse the controller has called it a day...at best a loose connection,,, controllers are repairable..

Scooter stops after about 3 mile as if battery dead


hi, okay now does this happening every time ? or is the distance variable ?

check the batteries are fully charged, if possible check the batteries with a electrical meter when it stops again , insert the probes in the charger socket the outside ones , the middle on you can ignore , check the voltage , below 23 or 24 volts this means that once you start going again the voltage will drop causing the controller to cut out , they normally cut out at about 18 volts .

Satisfied that's okay now the brake could be breaking down ? do you hear it click when going along ?


At worse your controller could be breaking down

Pride Celibrity 3 wheel electric scooter. The motor isn't working


the click is the electric brakes releasing , most likly the problem you are having is the brushes in the motor may be shot cheap easy fix on each side of the motor there should be what looks like a flat head screw those are the brush covers remove them and check them replace as need , otherwise the motor may be shot

Pride mobility scooter wont move you can hear the brake click off when the throttle is pushed but the motor does not start


hi, that noise could be a relay clicking off inside the motor controller because the brake on the motor has failed to release,

It quite a common problem and the only way to be 100% sure is try a replacement brake unit.

Pride sonic scooter won't turn on. the battery is charged and the motor is functional. Appears to be an electrical switch. any suggestions?


How do you know that the motor is functional? Have you load tested the batteries. If the batteries are bad usually they will still take a surface charge and appear to be fully charged.

My batteries are all right but the scooter is not


Two things

1 - Have the batteries been tested with a load tester.

2 - If the batteries are good then you need a new charger.

Battery charger wont switch over to charge on a sonic scooter


The Sonic has an off board charger. IF the scooter is not charging, you may need to replace it. If you a technically inclined, you can measure the voltage out of the charger, it should be more than 28 V. You may need to contact Pride for more help.
