Re: alarm shutting down scooter
I have never heard of this, and I just check the manuals to be sure. The only "Alarm" is the horn button. If that is going off while driving, I suspect that a wiring harness is frayed and shorting out.

Number 1, always charge after every use. You can check if the charger is charging quickly, by turning on the scooter and watching the gauge when you plug the charger in. The gauge should climb up if it does not move then charger is not working. Make sure the charger is plugged into an outlet that is not shut off with a light switch!

a couple of things could cause this. A weak battery is one, the other would be excessive load on the motor, operator past the recommended weight limit, thick carpet or grass, gravel ect. can all cause the unit to work and cause a thermal shut down.
So first have the batteries load tested.
Hope this helps.
We have had problems with scooter batteries from time to time and the repair man said to take apart the battery case and disconnect the batteries and use a car charger. I put the two battery in parallel and used a amp battery charger. This worked fine. Don't run your scooter batteries all the way down when using the Go Go as the scooter charger won't always bring them up to full charge and you may have repeat this. Also running the batteries all the way down shortens there life.
the batteries could be the problem, is it possible to try some other batteries, silly question , how steep is this hill ? remember scooters cannot climb steep hills as the motor will shut down due to the increased load.
1 Year old batteries ok ? but if they get used on a non daily basis and are not fully charged after use, I would question the batteries but again the motor could be overloading,
How much do you weight ? sorry for the personal question but it all loads the motor and that increases the current and that will cause the motor controller to shut it down.
It is impossible to overcharge with the Pride charger. When the battery is full, it will stop charging and check about oncew a miute to maintain the charge.
Now, when you plug in the key (looks like an audio headset jack) does the battery meter indicate a full charge? Also, the scooter will not move if its in free wheel mode, and it will not move if the charger is plugged in. Beyond these first steps, you will need a voltage meter to troubleshoot.
