Trace the throttle cable from the handle to the(carb or throttle body).Either the cable is broken,it has come off at one end,or the throttle handle or a piece of linkage is broken or loose.(this is a pretty basic problem-you can do it!)

I think the the fuse is under the head light cowling glass type 25 amp fuse. Your throttle, motor wiring, or controller maybe causing this problem.

The go go controller has a controller which will give you a specific beep code to indicate the problem with your scooter. From what you are describing, it seems that the throttle potentiometer is out of neutral at start-up. The controller needs to electrically sense the throttle pot is in neutral (center of left and right) to start. By turning the scooter on and off you are jiggling the pot enough to get it to zero out(go to neutral).
Please get back to me with the exact model of the go go and with the exact number of beeps in the error code and I will be able to diagnose the problem in a more definitive way.
The most common error codes involve the throttle pot out of neutral at start-up and the brake freewheel lever is in freewheel.
You can see if the throttle pot is out of neutral by moving it slightly in either direction with one hand and turning the scooter off and on with the other hand. If the scooter works by this slight adjustment of the pot, then this part needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Pride Wrangler scooter sometimes bucks and kicks when going up hill.


When your going up this hill is the bucking happening in slow or fast ? I only ask this cause sometimes your throttle arm can get stuck ,Make sure when you give it a command that its doing what it suppose to if it stutters with just a little command or bucks .Your looking at a new throttle potentiometer . This happens because of ware and tear your constantly holding on this throttle arm when your driving going over bumps and what not it tends to put wear on it.Not a uncommon problem.


Hope I was of some help ,Have a good day.

My spark plug floods everytime I try to start my SYM RV250cc motor scooter. Note: It is below freezing (20 degrees). I have been starting it once or twice a week to keep the battery charged. Last time I...


Not sure where you are (what country) but starting the scooter every so often is actually harder on it then just letting it sit. Here is a suggestion first get a small battery charger to put on the battery and bring it up to power, get some gas (fuel) stabilizer and put a few ounces in the gas tank. Motorcycle and scooters are heavily summer Bias, winter or cold starts are just not what they are meant to do. When the temperature here in Canada gets down to +10c my motorcycles can be just rude to start. Not only that the tires being tuned or made for hotter conditions become hard in the cold weather and will not grip the road surface well at all. Okay lets get back to your scooter, once you have the battery back up to power, put the gas (fuel) stabilizer in the tank and fire up the scooter, be careful not to over choke it or you will flood it. You need to nurse it along once it does start and don't rev it up to much cause it's just not going to like you until it has some heat. Once running on it's own you'll need to let it run in a well ventilated area for at least ten minutes to get that fuel stabilizer through the fuel system. Once you have done that your scooter is good to the spring. As a suggestion I'd put the charger on the battery once a month for a couple of hours at a time to keep it fresh don't stat it. What you are doing now by starting it every week or so is taking more battery power out to start then you are putting back in running it a few minutes (10) because of the cold temperatures. This will drain the battery making it increasingly harder to start and requiring more power from the battery which it doesn't have. The battery will give it's all to turn the starter which will short change the ignition system which requires at least 10 volts to fire the plug(s). You keep cranking the engine hoping it will fire meanwhile there is no ignition because there isn't enough power to make it happen. Vicious circle, that's why I'm suggesting you charge the battery before you attempt to start it again. The Fuel Stabilizer is just that it keeps the gas fresh and prevents varnishing or fowled systems. Cheers Have a Great Holiday Season from Robert in Canada

Van was running fine stoped for five minutes will not start now what could it be only has 109k


does the engine turn over. If it does turn over, is it slow. If it does turn over, it could be the coil not firing, or no gas getting to the throttle body. Spray a little starter fluid in the throttle body and try to start the engine, see if it fires off at all with starter fluid. These are simply done, just hope it's nothing major. Give a little more detail about what it is doing.
