Mobility scooter - Electrics work, but won't go

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
Regards

SOURCE: electrics cut out so often then come back on after a while

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.

SOURCE: I have purchased new batteries for my mobility

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

SOURCE: electric mobility scooter says charge is full but won't run

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.

SOURCE: scooter has sat for long time inside. replaced

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.
Good luck!

The green light on your charger indicates a full charge but you know thats not right since you didn't charge the batteries when they were in storage they have dropped so low the charger cannot detect them and provide a charge. The batteries will need to be replaced with new ones. Charge before use and charge for at least 20 days to get them operating at 100% now you will have to use it for those 20 days to get the batteries used to charging charge every night when you go to bed and unplug when you get up in the morning. If you do have to leave the chair for a week or so put up fully charged and charge once a week overnight. If you put the chair in storage again disconnect the batteries from the chair and store with a full charge. Hope this helps you

Battery fully charged everything works but will not move completley dead


Hi za900

You have several options to consider.
1. Controller is bad. This can only be checked by putting another controller on it. There is no test for controllers.

2. If the charger is bad your scooter will not run.

3. make sure your brake is in the lock position.

4. make sure your scooter is not plugged into the wall.

5. If your brake is bad the scooter won't run.

6. If your Throttle engager is bad the scooter won't run.

Have a tech evaluate for you, too many things could be the problem.

Any durable medical equipment company in your area can help you.

Good Luck
Tim

My aunt recently bought a secondhand scooter shoprider us pat no 4798255 without a users manual and the scooter will not charge please could you help?


Kathryn Was the scooter working when she bought it? If the batteries were fully charged and now it won't charge then I would suspect the charger. If the scooter wasn't charged when she got it and won't charge then I would replace the batteries Hope this helps

When first purchased the scooter was charged but barely used for approx. 3 months. when we began using it regularly the first two charges lasted for a weeks use each. from then on the red charge light goes...


Well if the scooter wasn't charged regularly while it sat for 3 months then the batteries are probably weak and will need to be replaced. These smaller batteries will not tolerate not being charged regularly and unfortunately one or both batteries has gotten weaker and does not hold a charge like it should when new. Sorry i can't give you a better answer Remember to charge the new batteries before use and if you are not using the scooter regularly (daily) always put up fully charged and charge at least once a week. If you use it daily charge the scooter when you go to bed and unplug when you get up in the morning. If you do this you should get good use out of your batteries. Hope this helps

The (new) batteries indicate from the charger that they are fully charged yet only go for 1 mile before indicator goes 'red".


diane how far did ya used to go with a full charge? Just because the provider said the batteries are new doesn't mean they are new coulda sat on the self for 6 months. New batteries can go bad or in your case probably just one is bad. batteries should be under warranty contact the place you bought them and have them check them for you make sure they are fully charged when they pick them up. Hope this helps
