I believe that this is the same as the US version of the Drive Phoenix scooter. If so, here's a link to the troubleshooting guide which you will need a multimeter to check. An 8-flash on the Phoenix indicates that there is a probable motor fault, which isn't good news at all. This is a small scooter, and the motors are not designed for heavy loads, or long climbs up steep hills. Other problems arise when folks drive their scooter through mud or other unstable surfaces and they get stuck. This can burn out the motor as well. More on the Phoenix here.

SOURCE: my pride IV scooter will not start I get a click

An 8-flash code indicates that the controller has shot craps. The controller is located under the shroud beneath the seat by the batteries and it controls all of the power and automatic functions of the scooter. They are damaged most often by water infiltration like running through deep puddles, etc. or by over-amping the scooter by driving it through unstable terrain like sand, mud, wet grass. There's no fix for it but a replacement and it's pricey...several hundred dollars.

Hi. 8 flashes is a fault code for a motor fault. It will be either worn brushes in the motor or faulty connectors to the motor. This fault code means that there is no circuit through the motor. Probably time to overhaul the motor. Most mobility scooters have plugs and sockets that are really to small to carry the amount of current that they do. Because of this, they sometimes fail.Good luck. Neil.

Hi. Does the light flash a few times and then pause, and then repeat the flashing ? Count the flashes, it is a fault code. Do you have the fast/slow switch in slow? It might be a speed control fault. How old are the batteries? Might have a faulty motor. Faulty motor or battery leads and connectors. Go for a ride and then check if any of the plugs and sockets feel hot.

SOURCE: scooter battery shows full charge but scooter does

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

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.

you want page 22.

indicator lamp flashes slowly Batteries are exhausted and need to be recharged
1 flash The battery needs charging or there is a bad connection to the battery. Check the connections to the battery or charge batteries.
2 flashes There is a bad connection to the motor.
Check all connections between the motor and the controller.
3 flashes The motor has a short circuit to a battery connection.
4 flashes Freewheel is engaged.
5 flashes Not used.
6 flashes The controller is being inhibited from driving; this may be because the battery charger is connected.
7 flashes A throttle fault is indicated. Make sure that the throttle is in the rest position before switching on the scooter
8 flashes A controller fault is indicated. Make sure the controller connections are secure.
9 flashes The parking brakes have a bad connection. Check the parking brake and motor connections. Make sure the controller connections are secure.
The-Active-Light

Count the number

10 flashes
An excessive voltage has been applied
to the controller. This is usually caused
by a poor battery connection. Check the
battery packs and controller
connections.

Mercury prism mobility scooter


The distance a scooter will go depends on the size and weight of the load also. If two people are different height ( wind drag ) and different weight or there is a difference in load you are carrying then there will be a difference in how long the charge will last. Since you switched the batteries with no change then this could be the case. There are other factors that can cause this as well , such as brake dragging, wheel bearings going out, low tire pressure if your tires are air, if 4 wheel scoters then wheel alignment. hope that helps.
