Question about Health & Beauty
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 .

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
