Rascal liteway 8 intermittent start/stop

Initially scooter functions correctly. If I stop for a very short time (10-20 secs on occasions) the scooter might not go. Every thing else will work fine. It will give 9 blinks on the light which the manual says could be free wheel selected. At a random time later (3 - 30 mins+), scooter will function correctly. I have cleaned the lever and micro switch with silicon and metered it and all appears well. Problem hasn't changed.

SOURCE: Rascal liteway 3 will not

Red light flashing 7 times is likely caused by problem with the speed control dial. Most likely something is wrong with the contacts. This type of problem needs attention by the service centre nominated for Rascal scooters in your area.

Check this site for details.
Hope you are able to get it fixed soon.

SOURCE: I have a Liteway Rascal

as far as i can find out, this is part of the self diagnosing, fault finding system on newer scooters.
different number of flashes signifyiing different faults. i cannot find a specific manual for the rascal scooter, but on most scooters of this type 9 flashes is listed as "other internal fault, return to dealer for inspection"

this could cover absolutely anything. the only thing i can suggest, is that oyu check all of the electrical connections are clean and secure. make sure there is no obvious damage to any wiring, and that all of the control units, motor, and brake unit are clean and secure on the scooter.
there is very little else that a user can do to these scooters, other than returning it to the dealer for a full inspection.
dealers should be able to give you a free estimate of repair costs. and then it is up to you if you have it done or not. the only thing to be careful of, is that most dealers are just interested in selling new scooters, so they will try VERY hard to get you to buy another scooter rather than have your existing one repaired as they can make far more money this way. you will have to stand your ground to get a free estimate.

good luck.

hope this helps

Hi Allen,

The problem is that although it is physically in neutral, the safety switch for indicating it is in neutral is not working correctly. It could be the switch itself or the wire(s) from the switch. Get a manual and see if you can trace the wires from the neutral switch.

Was working ok but washed it now it just flashes a red light 8 times and wont go along

8 flash code is typically a controller fault and there are about 12 sub codes that goes along with that flash code. More than likely you will have to replace the controller.

I have a 3 wheel falcon. Its wonderful but all of a sudden I'm going along and it stops short for no reason

When the failure occurs does a light flash on the tiller. If you see a flashing light count the number of flashes get back to me, your controller has found something wrong. When the scooter stops short do any lights light or is the scooter completely dead. Take the batteries to a battery shop.Have them load test them. I have a Rascal 600t my batteries will put out 500 cranking amps. If the batteries test good have the shop charge them up for you. Does it work right now. Yes, check your charger. No, check the freewheel mechanism when its in freewheel mode it electrically disconnects the motor. Well this thing gets wet at times i have to WD40 mine to get it to work right. The last thing to do is but the back end up,run it, while wiggling wires. Pay particular attention to connectors. The toggle switch in the tiller often gets intermittent. On my scooter the plugs on my get loose causing my scooter to fault out or to stall.Hope this helps

Scooter battery shows full charge but scooter does not move ! red led light flashes 8 times !

Plamont unfortunately that flash code usually means a controller error. The controller is the brains of your scooter. Take the seat off and remove the rear shroud that covers the batteries and motor/gearbox assembly. Check all the wiring connectors for damage or loose connections. After checking the connectors turn the scooter on and see if you still get 8 flashes.
Did Medicare purchase the scooter? If so they will pay for most of the repair costs. You can contact your provider that sold you the scooter or a repair service Repair Xpress@ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 Hope this helps you
