    I bumped into a wall and now the steering column adjustment on my Pride Legend XL is inoperative. There should be three positions available but the whole steering unit moves freely forward and back. There appears to be a cable loose or broken. Is this an easy fix? Thanks.

Had a similar problem with my shoprider te888's there are 2 possible solutions that I have found.
1. dirt had been picked up in the pad that acts as a brake, causeing the motor to drag and speed up, found this after almost burning my hand on end of motor with brake. disassembling the brake and cleaning with an alchohol soultion fixed this one.
2. Loose wire to battery post, or corrosion on battery connectors can cause this too. found loose terminal on battery by tightening nut where wire attached.drove me nuts for days till I decided to tighten with wrench rather than finger tight... On my scooter it would slow down do to excessive current draw because of bad connection and controller would shutdown, which meant ubrut stop. Showed up mainly when climbing long grade up driveway.
hope this helps

Tim, the batteries on my Legend XL gave out last Fall, so I replaced them with two new recommended batteries, and now it will only run in top speed for the first hundred feet, then it slows down to a


If it is actually speed pot related, then removing the speed pot
and spraying down the shaft of the speed pot (from the top)
with electronic contact cleaner, may help to make clean
the pot resistive element and that should fix that. If it's
not a speed pot issue and happened after replacement of
the batteries, assuming they are 35/37 AH AGM batteries,
check the batteries for current delivery at the rated current.
It could be just a battery that is not providing the rated current
to the motor after 50 feet.

Is it possible to get a copy of the repair manual for a 3 wheel Pride Legend XL scooter?


hi, it not a repair manual but a owners manual that is very helpful, the XL is my own personal favourite scooter but suffered from dodgy wiring and connectors otherwise it's a blast, I have reprogrammed the eGis controller to hit the max speed 10 mph.

I had a similar problem with my Pride Legend XL when I drove it
through a puddle accidently and some water splashed up underneath
the motor controller. It would buck or go then stoo without any warning
as the electric brake was applied. Had to take the seat off and use a
hair dryer on the controller connections to dry them out. It doesn't
seem to take much water to make these inoperative. After thoroughly
dried out with a hair dryer..no more problems like that with it.

My Pride Legend will slow down (barely move) after awhile of running. When it cools off, It will run ok again. What causes this?


The battery is probably overheating. Is this an original or older battery? Check the owner's manual for what kind of battery you should have and see if a replacement doesn't solve your problem.

Hi. Is the machine display any fault codes, ( flashing battery light)? Is the free-wheel lever in the correct place, Move it in and back again and try it. It is possible that you have a stuck brush in the motor. Get a multi meter and check the resistance through the motor. Check that the brake unit is releasing properly.
If one of the battery lights is flashing, count the flashes and let us know what the pattern is, and we can tell you what it means. Good luck. Neil.

My Pride Colt XL8 keeped cutting out (7 flashes of LED, Speed pot error) , checked all the cable connections up tiller arm as recommended by Pride technical support, worked for about a week, then problem returned. Eventually took to Pride dealer, with problem occasional occurring,they found it to be the lower tiller cable support bracket straining the cables connector intermittently and so removed the bracket, the problem then was solved !
