Question about Pride Mobility Products Go-Go Elite Traveller Scooter - 4 wheel w/12 AH Batteries & Charger + Flat Free Tires - Silver

1 Answer

My go go elite traveller will throw the emergency button and drags , slowly losing power just before it cuts out. the motor gets red hot and will not go again for several hours until it has cooled. It can then go for 2-3 days with no problems. Two Pride dealers cannot find the problem it has a brand new battery.

    Thanks Robin , after My Pride dealer couldn't pin point the problem and even after he rang Pride who said they had never had this happen before....This is my 2nd Pride scooter that it has happened to I had to go out and buy a new scooter...NOT a Pride this time. It is not a pleasant experience scooter stopping dead in the middle of a three lane road!

    I seen this happening to a brush-less motor under test and the resistance does change that means the coli windings etc are breaking down, bad material more than construction, My experience of Pride is a good one and I'm amazed that this has happened to you twice now, I can only put it down to a faulty batch of motors, Sadly Pride do not have the technical staff to dig deeper on this.

Sadly that in my experience is the brushless motor breaking down, are you sure the controller is not outputting a large current? i seen them do this at times, the controller should be a chrome color know as a PG Drives S -Drive, more information here,

SOURCE: pride elite traveller 4 a knock when driven coming

hi,

Sounds to me like the worm drive is slipping , this can happen when the worm drive small bearing is worn,

If you do take it a part , please take great care, the shaft from the motor will have a worm drive, two bearings on the worm drive,

Try to move the shaft within the bearings, I paid £10 for replacement bearings.

Please give me a update.

Regards
GeWiz.

SOURCE: I have major brake drag on a go-go elite traveler.

Not beeing an expert on these machines, owner of one that had brake troubles that I fixed, it sounds like the micro-switch on the brake assy. is not functioning, either due to miss adjustment (as mine) or failed switch. ronnell33.

SOURCE: AXS Mobility scooter loses battery power quickly.

hi , two problems can cause this,

1. batteries are weak, is the charger ok ? just because it 's green does not mean the charger is ok, can you validate the charge, try some other batteries ?,

2. Brake be activated or on at all times,
The best way to prove this is to remove the brake mech from the side of the motor completey now try the scooter, if the problem goes away then check the resistance of the brake, is it open or shorted ?
If you feel the brake, batteries and charger are working ok then the controller must be activating the brake and this is the fault but please double check the voltage on the brake leads.

Rachel you need 2 12/12AH batteries that are located in the battery pack under the seat. Simply pull the battery pack from the scooter and with a standard phillips screwdriver remove the many screws attaching the battery pack together (simply turn the pack over to get to the screws) There will be two wire on each battery and also a heat sensor attached to the side of one battery remove the wires from each battery and carefully reove the heat sensor. You can bring one of the batterys to your local battery warehouse type store or a provider and purchase 2 new ones reinstall like you removed attaching red wire to red terminals and black to black terminals and reattach the heat sensor to the side of one battery (you can use packaging tape to reattach). replace all the screws to put the case back together and reinstall in your scooter. Charge the batteries with you charger until the charge light is green then happy riding HOPE THIS HELPS

Tazora elite. Has locked up on me two times now. Almost throws me off scooter. Battery just charged. H ow do I tell if it's a battery problem or a motor problem?


Some scooters are fitted with an electric safety brake which engages when the power is off.

While there could be a mechanical fault with the transmission or motor this would seem unlikely as when the fault is absent the scooter presumably runs ok.

It would seem the electric brake is engaging either due to a fault in the brake or because of an interruption in the power supply to it. That might mean the battery but unlikely. That would be fairly obvious as the complete machine would die at the same time it stopped and you made no mention of that.

My boss has an Elite Traveller that won't move. The battery is fully charged and its in the unlock position. Please advise. Thank you in advance for your help.


  • When the manual freewheel lever is pushed forward, the brakes are disengaged and all power to the motor/transaxle assembly is cut.
  • Pull back on the manual freewheel lever, turn the Travel Scooter off, and then back on to return to normal operation.

I have a pride go go elite traveler which has a knocking noise and gets slower and slower


hi,if the brake getting hot that means it not releasing fully,beware if you continue to use the scooter you may damage it further as you stressing the motor and controller unit...

I offer a free testing service and i'm able to fix a majority of brakes for low cost..

so what's happening here ?

Okay a voltage is applied to the brake allowing the motor to spin, the brake releases by powering a magnetic coil this in turn pulls the fiction plates away allowing the motor to spin...

MY golf loses power, dragging, alternator light


i had a similiar problem on my MK3, which turned out to be a seized alternator, and was quite easy to replace. however it may be something simpler, as the power steering motor is driven of the same wheel as the alternator on the drivers side of the engine, and that might be seized causing both of your problems as neither are being powered. i would check the belts and wheels first then if thier okay start focusing on your alternator.
