Batterys will not hold charge

I brought a three wheel scooter for my wife and the next day i had to buy two new batterys for it as the other ones did not hold their charge but when i put the new ones in and charged them it still will not charge as on the scooter there are three lights on it they are red yellow and green the green light tells you that the scooter is fully charged but the green will not light up and it as not blown as if i put it into neutral all the lights will flash and i charged it overnight and took it out in the morning it whent flat in about 5 min of putting the key in so you see it as had two new batterys in it and it seems to be the same as before if not worse and the green light always comes on the charger

Hi kevinsharpe8;

Right off the top of my head I would suspect the charging circuit. The way to check this is to measure the voltage at the batteries while they are on charge. The voltage reading when they are supposed to be charging should be higher that what you would read at the batteries when they are not charging.

These charging circuits are not complicated and any electrician type should be able to trouble shoot the circuit and find the problem

Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if appropriate thanks

I have a brand new scooter the batteries wont hold the charge


Bill have them replace the batteries. They are under warranty for 6 months and the provider is responsible for providing free replacement batteries under warranty. If they won't contact the manufacturer of the chair and explain your problem (that the provider will not replace bad batteries) they should require the provider to give you new batteries or send some to you. Make sure that you charge the new batteries before use and that you charge them nightly for 20 days If you use the scooter daily charge it every nite when you go to bed and unplug it in the morning hen you get up. Remember to have the power off to the charger whenever you plug or unplug it from the scooter. if the charger is an onboard one then just plug it into the wall and unplug when charged Hope this helps

Yvonne,

When you say that you put in a new battery, I hope you mean new batteries. This particular scooter takes 2 batteries and just changing one will leave the remaining one in poor condition. Make sure that you have replaced the batteries with the correct size and type. This scooter takes 2, 40 amp hour batteries. Sealed gel AGM batteries are preferred. The batteries should have the number 40 on them with a date code. You need new, fresh batteries to have them work properly. A date code tag of A1 indicates the A month(1st month) or January of 2011 (1 is for 2011). If you are not sure of the battery condition a local shop can load test them for you.
There is a possibility with a 5 year old scooter that a worn motor/brake will cause excessive current draw and drain your batteries. A qualified technician can determine this for you with a service call.
Hope this helps.

It makes no difference if you charge on or off board. The batteries are easy enough for your son to change just alot of screws to take out of the case. Just replace the old batteries with the new ones and if it has a heat sensor make sure that it is placed on one of the new batteries. take your old batteries to a battery store and they can recycle them for you. Hope this helps

Hey,
well there is another way of checking the battery's and thats by load testing them.
1)Fully charge the battery's
2) load test both batterys make sure they are reading close to the same
If both battery's check out good than ,The next step would be to check that brake assembly.
1) Put the scooter on blocks so when you drive it doest runaway
2)Take the rear wheel off that the brake side is on
3) Put the scooter in drive with some tape or rubber band to hold it in drive
4) Make sure theres nothing in the way if the scooter should fall
5)check your break if it abnormally hot
If it is in fact abnormally hot ,the you have a break problem.


Hope i was able to help,good luck..

Do you need to have batteries on charge everynight even if you have not used the scooter as ive been told that with the travelite you do i borrowed one in process of buying it from friend


If you use the scooter then charge it. You need to charge the scooter at least once a week even if you don't use it. More importantly is that you charge the scooter for at least 8 hours at a time. If you charge it less then it will start killing the batteries.

The battery takes a charge, but will not power scooter


This scooter require two batteries, not one. It is usually a good idea to replace both batteries at the same time, even though one is obviously bad, and the other "seems" okay. These 12 volt DC batteries (VDC) work in tandem to produce the 24 volts that the scooter operates on. In a perfect world, they would both live a long and happy life, but reality is that some die young, others old. Since they are joined together, the one that's going out saps the life out of the other one, so take a bullet and replace both batteries. Make sure you completely charge the scooter when you get the new ones in. Verify that your charger is working properly. To properly charge the 24 VDC system, the chargers have to have an output of about 26-28VDC. The output must be higher than the rated voltage of the two batteries put together to charge. While you have the shell off the scooter, you can see if the charger is working by measuring across the terminal on each battery with the charger off. Note the meter reading. It should be 12-13 VDC. Put it on the charger and retake the reading, and each battery should show an increase in the voltage due to the boost from the charger. After three hours, each battery should show about a 13.5 VDC reading which should hold above 12 for a good 8-10 miles. Always charge your batteries overnight, and if not in use, disconnect them completely with a full charge on the batteries.

Brakes start dragging and battery goes dead fast.


First have the batteries load tested. Also with that put a ohm meter on the brake. It should be around 60 ohms.
