How do l fix the brakes for CTM HS 250 Mobility Scooter?

When turning on the key there's no LED lights flashing on the Control Panel. However l can tell that the battery is fully charged because when l plug it on the mains the light indicator on the battery itself is green whereas the LED lights on the Control Panel start flashing. I counted how many times the LED lights keep flashing and it was 5 times. In the Users Manual it says that when this happens that's an indicator that the brakes aren't working. Any idea as to how can l fix this problem?

Hi, the error is covers a number of issues however the brake is one of them.

Now check the wiring of the brake from the controller, if you have a electrical meter disconnect the brake and take a reading, it should read about 35 to 50 ohms on your meter set on lowest resistance reading.

Now if the reading is out this range , this could well be the problem,

If it's not check the connection to the controller.If there is a microswitch fitted check that making a connection.


Please rate my feedback..

SOURCE: I have an electric mobility

Barb the flashes indicate a brake problem. Make sure that you aren't in freewheel. Move the freewheel lever located at the rear of your scooter up and down a few times then put it in drive mode and turn the scooter on and see if you still get 5 flashes If so you will have to replace the brake assembly Hope this helps
