Question about Pride Pursuit XL PMV

1 Answer


Even after charging all night, there's still a fault code on the battery condition meter saying the batteries are low. Could that possibly mean the batteries are not completely broken in yet, and not up to full capacity? This is a new scooter.

    Problem solved. I was mistaken. There's no fault code. The light just comes on at first... then it displays a code if something is wrong.

Hi, lets work on the assumption that your scooter is correct in saying the batteries are low, why is that ? , well you need to look at the charger and if possible try another charger , the other thing that could have happened is the charger fuse has blown, this is located on the tiller stem

If you are convinced that the charger and fuse are okay , look at the batteries, just because it a new scooter does not mean it new batteries ., let me explain let say your scooter has been assembled a year ago, batteries fitted , now the batteries have not been touched during that period , that in itself can kill batteries or as soon as you start charging them they give up.
I have seen this happen on many occasions.
Please rate my assistance

SOURCE: Scooter has full charge but still won't go.

It probably means that the connections or wiring from your battery are loose or broken. When you add the extra current required to run the motors, the voltage is being lost. Monitor the battery voltage with a meter while trying to drive the scooter will prove this.

Sounds like your motor brake is out. Usually the discolor on the brake indicates it has overheated.

It is pretty common for the meters on the charger to either not work at all, or give an inaccurate reading. They get bounced and dropped, and they aren't that well built to begin with. Basically, just ignore the charger as long as you are getting a full charge out of it, and getting good distance with each charge.

I have a Yamaha Tach/Hour Meter 1/10. I cannot turn it off. Boat batteries are disconnected and I have disconnected the tach/hour meter. It keeps flashing

From what I have gathered on the internet, it doesn't turn off. When running it displays RPM, when engine off, displays run time. Estimate for the internal battery was 10 years, but I wouldn't bet on it. This is a sealed unit and priced low enough that after a few years it is a throw away. Liquid Crystal displays use very little power, micro micro amps, and it is possible that it is designed to charge itself when the engine is running off the pulses from the plug wire, micro amps at a time. All that said, I don't think you have a problem, just need to read the instructions and see if they say anything different, I couldn't find them online so hope you have them.

Fluctuating voltage meter

Alternator maybe charging , but not enough to keep the battery charged which is causing the battery to drop charge. Most likely it's the voltage regulator inside the alternator. but regardless the whole alternator will have to be replaced. This will eventually cause the new battery cells to go bad.

I was driving down the hwy & it wouldn't let me accelerate anymore so I pulled over & shut off the car. well it wont start back up. it sounds like it's trying but wont

Hi Marie,
It is really hard to say without actually checking the car, but it sounds like you may be having charging system problems. Possibly a bad alternator, loose battery cable or the like. Low voltage at the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) will cause the PCM to go into "reduced power mode" - also known as "limp-in mode". This will limit your accelerator and shut off some of your electrical accessories while you are driving. If the battery voltage is low, this is what is keeping your car from re-starting. Engine overheating can also cause similar symptoms.
I guess the question is - did you have any warning lamps on when this happened? Was the "Check Engine" light on? Was the "battery" light coming on?

The best advise I can give you at this point is to get the car's computer network scanned for fault codes. Any fault codes stored will help to determine what is going on. The only other instruction I can give you is don't keep trying to start it. If the battery voltage is low, continuing to try starting it can cause the battery voltage to drop low enough to clear the memory in your PCM. This would not be good when it comes to trying to figure out wnat happened.

2009 sportster 1200 low. New battery has gone dead in 4 or 5 days. Replaced original battery a month ago. had some light corrosion on the fuse block at that time. cleaned that up as well as possible when...

Get your battery charged up to full charge and put it back in the bike but leave the negative battery cable loose. You'll need a digital volt ohm meter that will measure at least ten amps of current. Pull all the fuses out of the bike and leave the switch OFF. Set the meter's function selector switch to AMPS. Plug the meter leads into the meter with the red wire in the AMPS hole and the black lead into the COMMON hole. Connect one lead to each clip where a fuse goes in. This wires the meter in series with the circuit, replacing the fuse. Hold the negative battery cable onto the negative battery post. The meter will tell you how much current is flowing through the circuit. If the reading is a negative number, reverse the meter leads where you have them connected to the fuse holder. This will tell you which circuit has the current draw in it. From there, you'll have to refer to a wiring diagram to determine exactly what is on that circuit. The reason you leave the negative cable loose is if you short something, you can disconnect the battery quickly if you have to.

Good Luck

I have a1999 Honda VFR800FI motorcycle. If I fully charge the battery, I seem to be able to ride for about 1 hour or so. Could my generator be bad or something much worse? I'm only getting 12v to the...

You say you are only getting 12v to the battery(& I presume you tested this with the engine running) then that is too low.
It needs to charge from about 13.5 to 14.2volts(DC).
Common causes of a low charge rate are,
Faulty voltage regulator.
Faulty alternator(stator usually).

You need to have these items tested to dertermine which is at fault.

Unless your experienced, faultfinding charging systems can be tricky & you need a couple of special tools too do it efficiently.

If your up for it- & have a multi meter,
You can start by disconnecting the wiring at the regulator.
Using the meter set to resistance-ohms times 1- check between the three yellow wires-yellow to one yellow then the other-see you get same readings & should be quite low(just a couple or few ohms)
Now set your resistance scale to max.
Probe between each yellow wire & earth.(don't let your fingers touch the probes-it will give a false reading)
There should be NO CONUNUITY- Any reading between the stator yellow wires & earth means a faulty stator.
As for the regulator- there all different so manufacturers specs are usuall needed.- as are test procedures.

Hope this has helped some what
