Hello dvaldez. The problem is not with the scooter but the battery. When a battery no longer takes a full charge you generally have to replace it. Any auto parts store will test that battery for you to see if it is indeed the problem. This is a free service. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

  • What that flash code indicates that there is that the battery voltage is to high to operate the scooter. This can happen for a number of reasons and from out of no where. The manual says you should contact GoGo for this problem. But I know a couple things to try and if they do not work then you need to contact GoGo.
  1. First remove the battery connectors for 5 full minutes and see if that resets it.
  2. You may have a wire that got caught up somewhere so check all wires for breaks in the insulation, cracks etx.
  3. Check the fuse as well.
  4. Push in the main circuit breaker reset button (see diagram)


  • Here is the GoGo Pride Scooter website should you need to contact them and if what I listed does not work then you need to. The things I list are some at home troubleshooting tips GoGo does not offer. They say to contact them immediately.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

More on Celebrity X motor overheating. Brushes look good. Brake does not seem to be dragging, Batteries are about 5 years old but hold a good charge when not in use for months,

If the motor is overheating, it is drawing far more current out of
the batteries than it is supposed to. Assuming it is 2 x 13v x 33ah
batteries, these are good for about 2 to 3 years on my scooter and 'wheelchair. AGM (absorbent glass mat) lead acid batteries do deteriorate over time due to battery chemistry.

Although the batteries may appear to take a charge
and the voltage 12.6volt x 2 = 25.2 volts nominal, with no load
on them, the motor controller takes a whack of current to get you going.

I have an digital voltmeter/ammeter installed on my Pride XL scooter and I was amazed how much current the motor/motor controller takes from the batteries. 50 to 80amps on startup.

If the battery voltage drops due to the age of the batteries, as the
energy is being used up from them, the current required by the
motor for rotation has to go up, and that will cause overheating of the controller and the motor. It is Ohms law plain and simple
the less voltage available-the more current required to do the
work and current creates the heating effect.

I replace my batteries every two years. Can't take a chance on
being stuck with discharged batteries.

Why won't my pride legend start?

The legend has a Curtis controller. The flash codes you provided points the problem to a faulty throttle pot. If a new throttle does not fix the issue, then your problem is the controller itself.

I turn key on celebrity scooter. everything looks normal. all lights on, but does not run.

Are the lights flashing or steady? If they are steady and indicate that the battery is charged, make sure that the freewheel/manual brake release lever is in the drive position. If the lights are blinking, then you can visit this site to locate the type of controller on your scooter to try and determine what the problem may be:
If you continue to have problems, please contact Pride Mobility Technical Support for assistance.
Good luck!

I bought this scooter on craigslist, batterys charge but the scooter is giving off a signal like in morse code, 9 blinking lights, the manual doesnt say what it could be. Lights, horn, all work. I've...

If the batteries are good, you have solved 80% of most scooter problems. You have described the following problem:

You have a flash code of 9, that is the status light flashes 9 times, then there is a pause, then flashes 9 times again and the scooter will not drive.

This means that you have an internal controller problem. The only solution to this problem is to replace the controller (computer module). The controller is located under a plastic cover under your feet when you are sitting in the scooter. Remove this plastic cover and remove the aluminum cover of the controller inspecting for burnt and melted wiring.

You should have the manufacturer run the serial number for this scooter to verify the correct component parts (Pride 800-800-8586). Pride can also verify if the parts are covered under warranty. Warranty repairs need to be done by a certified technician or a dealer.

The R series controller for this scooter runs $230 retail. All the associated wiring harnesses plugged into it (if melted or damaged) will run another $230. Labor is about 1 hour and you can do it yourself. Take off all the covers and plug the wiring harnesses in one at a time noting how they are run.

I have seen the wiring and plugs melted where they plug into the controller, so inspect this area carefully.

You can test the motor with a digital voltmeter. Unplug the motor and put your test leads across the red and black connectors . The resistance should be between .5 and 1.5 ohms for a good motor. Test the motor brake by reading the resistance across the 2 white connectors. It should read between 30-35 ohms across the brake. Hope this helps.
