Problem with days strider mn4 mobility scooter

I am having problems with my strider mn4 mobility scooter, it has had a new trans axle and new batteries,but i am still not getting the power and range out of it that i should do you think it could be the battery box, or what other connections could there be that is causing the problems i have had a look at all the wires and nothing is loose,odd time it will stop but switch off then on again and it will go, what could be causing the batteries to run down so quick its not as if i go at full speed and alot of the time it is on the flat

Hi, you mention everything but the charger , please bear in mind a poor charger will result in poor batteries thus the problems you describe.

The brake in question could also pose a problem , firstly if possible get the rear wheels off the ground , now apply a slight forward movement on the throttle lever until you hear the click , okay that the brake releasing now try to move the wheels around , do they move freely yes then the brake releasing okay, you will some help to do this .

    if you're certain the charger is okay and you're giving the batteries a good overnight charge then it time to revisit the batteries, i take it you also got a new motor as well then the company that did all this for you should sort it as they haven't completed the job

SOURCE: lil rascal stopped again

make sure you hands are not touching the forward or reverse lever when you insert the key. many times if you have your finger or thumb touching the lever just a tid, the scooter will only move a little then stop, or not work at all. this is a safty. Usally I change out the throttle pot and the Key switch (speed pot) together. As for the price, He didn't over charge you if the 150.00 included his labor. Ask if he can replace the throttle if the product is less then 30 days old. But be prepaird to pay shipping and his labor for replacing the first one.

SOURCE: I own a pride mobility scooter with an issue of stopping

It could be a loose battery connector and the controller heats up when it's trying to pull amperage out of the batteries but can't because of the loose connection Try tightening bolts on batteries but disconnect them first. Also it could be the brake on the motor and if the unit isn't shutting off the lights on the tiller blink in patterns to let you know what problems to check for.

SOURCE: I have a pride victory xl8. Problem - was running

All scooters have a protection system built in to prevent burning up the motor, and the user, should the scooter overheat. It sounds like yours overheated. If the temp. outside was warm to hot, and your weight is near the weight limit for the scooter, and you are taxing the motors over a hill, or unstable terrain, then the scooter goes into "limp home mode", or just enough to get you a bit aways, and then it will turn off. After a few minutes to cool off, it will go again, but shut down fairly quickly because it takes a spell to let the whole transaxle-motor assembly to get cool.

Check your weight, and anything else you may be carrying with you on the scooter. Check the terrain, and incline you are going against. Throttle down for all these occassions. If you overloaded the system at some point, then you may have overheated the brushes. Remove them (2) with a standard screwdriver and see if the copper coil is still flexible and springy. If not, replace it/them.

The damage may already be done, so it may need a new motor/transaxle assembly. An expensive proposition I'm afraid.

SOURCE: AXS Mobility scooter loses battery power quickly.

hi , two problems can cause this,

1. batteries are weak, is the charger ok ? just because it 's green does not mean the charger is ok, can you validate the charge, try some other batteries ?,

2. Brake be activated or on at all times,
The best way to prove this is to remove the brake mech from the side of the motor completey now try the scooter, if the problem goes away then check the resistance of the brake, is it open or shorted ?
If you feel the brake, batteries and charger are working ok then the controller must be activating the brake and this is the fault but please double check the voltage on the brake leads.

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

Hi. From your description of problems, it sound very likely that your batteries are at fault. There could be other problems causing the above symptoms, but I would definately start by getting the batteries checked at a shop with a PC based battery testing facility. If the batteries pass this test, I would be looking at Brake, Motor or Transaxle problems, as these will all draw from your batteries if not opperating correctly. I would not change any fuses, as these will be fine unless blown. Hope this helps.

Pride mobility scooter died after bogging down and tripping the fuse repeaedly

iT sounds to me like you have one or more shorted windings on the armature of your drive motor which is apart of the trans-axle assembly. TO BE SURE remove the entire trans-axle module. I have a Rascal 600t all i have to do to remove my trans-axle is to remove to quick pins and my entire trans-axle assembly comes away from the scooter. Take the entire assembly down to your local motor repair shop that can rewind motors. Thay will check out the motor, take it apart and clean all the carbon dust from the brushes that gets all over the interior of the motor, doesn't do the motor bearing any good. Rewinding a motor isn't inexpensive costing $200 and up depending on the size and complexity of the motor. But the scooter trans-axle cost is astoundingly high at $1,500 and up. They say they are sealed unit and that they can not be repaired. In reality trans-axles are quite simple to repair and easily repaired. The only difficult thing are the scooter companies that will not come across with the parts and info we need in order for us to keep our scooters in good repair. So ii'd take the trans-axle down to the motor shop. They don't charge anything to check it out. When they do maintenance you will know its working right. When troubleshooting problem with scooter you eliminate half the machine when you eliminate the trans-axle. Get back to me once you've checked it out

Hi my days strider midi4 keeps going in reverse for about 4 seconds after you take the throttle off

spares sounds like the throttle pot is not being centered upon release making the scooter move in reverse or forward depending on which way it is off center. try pushing on the thottle lever slowly forward when you stop to see if that stops the creeping. Then you can try to adjust the pot by loosening the lever and retightening it in the forward direction that stops the creeping. You might have to order a new throttle pot assembly to get this working right. Hope this helps
