Question about Electric Mobility Mobility Electric Power Scooter Wheelchair. Heavy Duty
My nana's scooter has sat in my garage for about a year, but has been charged every week for at least over night. It is a Mercury M48. When you turn it on, all the electrics work - lights, horn, indicators, but it won't drive. Any suggestions please?
Hi, they are a nice scooter so let's get it working ,
First check that the freewheel lever is disengaged, in drive mode.
Do you hear a click when pressing the lever to go forward or backwards?
What can happen is the brake located on the side of the motor can seize,,,
Please keep me updated

First of all,7 years is a long time for a scooter. Your batteries are probably shot and I would suggest you take it to a service tech to get it fixed. This would be the best way to keep this scooter running.

The control seems to be the issue. I have rewired so many scooters. When you have power and it wont go, it is usually the control. If you cannot afford the part right away, you can rewire it or have it rewired direct

This sounds she has tripped her circuit breaker. It works just like the one on your house, when you ask too much of it it suddenly goes 'pop' and seems to be dead.
Looks like you have the same scooter as mine, it should be a little white button on the back of the base. If you follow this link, it will give you a pdf version of the older model pride victory manual, (Mine is a three, they are up to about 10!) See fig. 8 on page 20 and 'Circuit Breaker' on page 21. Also, Page 33 has the troubleshooting info. Hope this helps.

Unfortunatly, your batteries need to be replaced.
The batteries contain a gel that needs to have current run through it on a regular basis (at least 8 hours once a week) or it will solidify. If you attach the charger, what will most likely happen is the green light will either stay green or go to green after a very short time. The charger will indicate the batteries are full, but instead of being full of pwer, they are full of crud. Your warranty will most likely not cover replacment as this is due to customer neglect, but your insurance may still cover the replacement if you can wait for the process to go through. Otherwise, you will need to replace the batteries on your own. There is enough power to turn on the lights and honk the horn, but not enough to get the motors to work. Make sure all of your connections are good and the fuses are intact and that your manual brake release or freewheel lever is in the drive position.
