    Scooter ran to the store key was removed while shopping, returned inserted key, scooter would not operate.
    voltage is 30V at hand controls, can the voltage be to high?
    Beep code is three pause one is this telling me that the thumb control forward reverse is not working correctly, the pot checks out as good, could it be a lower wiring problem or the main control box it's self, OR?????
    Thank you

    a 36 volt system, does not seem to be charging. Plug charger into wall outlet and green light come on at the charger, but plug into scooter light stays green. If turn scooter on charger flash's red which doesn't charge battery.

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.

How do I charge a moxie power scooter??


  • Turn the scooter's power switch to the OFF position.
  • Connect the charger's plug to the charging port on the scooter.
  • Plug the charger's power cable into a power outlet.
  • When the charger's LED red/orange light is on, the battery is charging. Optimal charging time is 6 to 8 hours, or up to 10 hours to achieve a complete charge. The scooter manual will have the exact charging
  • Times recommended for your scooter.
  • Stop charging when the LED light is completely green.
  • Disconnect charger from the scooter, then from the power outlet.
  • Run your scooter before riding it to verify the battery charge.

My gogo elite traveller wont chrage. The charging light isnt on when i plug the scooter in.


Sounds your batteries are to low in voltage for the charger to recognize. Also check the fuse on the battery box, normally a red one 10amps.

Batteries wont charge


You would need a voltmeter to check the charger in order to see if it is charging the batteries. New batteries if purchased from a reputable outfit will have a nominal charge and should work initially in order to test the scooter. Depending on the model check for blown fuses and disconnected wires on the battery boxes, connections, plugs and charging circuits including the wall outlet. The display on the scooter will indicate the state of charge and the key switch should work and give an initial indication that the scooter is on. If you provide make and model I can respond with more specific information.

Scooter won't take a charge


scooter battries must be charged on a regular basis.or else the on board charger wont charge them .Try useing a trickle charger to bring them back to life. if you dont have access to one bring them to a local service station they should charge them for a small fee.

Try to use scooter, clicking sound, then moves bout 4 inches. charged batteeries all night.


How old are the batteries? When you connect the charger, if the charger indicates the batteries are charged within a few minutes and the battery power does not last more than 1-2 hours or less, it may indicate that that the batteries will not take a charge anymore and need to be replaced.
If the battery indicator on the scooter says the batteries are charged but the scooter still will not move, make sure the freewheel lever is in the drive position.
If you continue to have issues, contact your sales person or the manufacturer to schedule a service call.
Good luck!

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.

New batteries, fully charged, still wont work


I will ask but don't take offence, so many people overlook the obvious, have you checked the free wheel lever/s are not set to free wheel (if it is the scooter will be relatively easy to push forward or backward) if set to free wheel then move lever/s to drive position

this is a link for the sonic scooter user guide, not 100% sure that it is the exact one or not but it should show you were to find the free wheel lock on your scooter it is in this guide and I would be surprised if it is not the same as yours. Hope that helps. Mark.
