Question about Pride Legend 3 Wheel Mid-Size Scooter

Performance/Range issue with Pride Legend Classic

My brother-in-law has a dual speed Legend Classic that has recently had new batteries. Despite charge-cycling, he doesn't feel that it has any significant range - based on observing the power meter when travelling up inclines going from the green band down to the red band. Also, he has recently raised the scooter on blocks to allow him to run it indoors (inclement weather here in the UK) and has observed that only one of the rear wheels drives when he runs the scooter.

Is this symptomatic of a problem with the drive train or is it normal behaviour i.e. like a differential in a car would behave?

If only one wheel turns then it sounds like the transaxle is bad. They are a sealed unit and cost around $1000.

Why won't my pride legend start?


The legend has a Curtis controller. The flash codes you provided points the problem to a faulty throttle pot. If a new throttle does not fix the issue, then your problem is the controller itself.

Tim, the batteries on my Legend XL gave out last Fall, so I replaced them with two new recommended batteries, and now it will only run in top speed for the first hundred feet, then it slows down to a


If it is actually speed pot related, then removing the speed pot
and spraying down the shaft of the speed pot (from the top)
with electronic contact cleaner, may help to make clean
the pot resistive element and that should fix that. If it's
not a speed pot issue and happened after replacement of
the batteries, assuming they are 35/37 AH AGM batteries,
check the batteries for current delivery at the rated current.
It could be just a battery that is not providing the rated current
to the motor after 50 feet.

I have a 2002four wheel Legend Mobility scooter.


Hi. A lot of scooters have a seperate switch to select a high or low speed setting.
This switch is sometimes labeled indoor/ outdoor.
I have had a few scooters with a similar fault, and the wires that connect to the high/low switch have broken of the terminals on the rear of the switch.
It could also be a faulty speed control pot.
Check these and good luck. Neil.

How do i remove the pride legend classic xl8 seat


hi, be careful here as it can make your back ache,
now there is a lever to the right of the seat, pull it up towards you and
turn your seat 90 anticlockwise, so the seats not facing the control panel, at right angles, you should now be able to lift the seat , take great care here if you have back problems in the past as some seats are quite heavy.

Pride Legend surges at any speed & makes a clicking noise


This sounds like a bad throttle pot. You need to have it replaced.
