Question about Health & Beauty
Hi i have a whisper mobility scooter 13 yrs old had from new had new batteries runs fine on the flat and batteries fully charging ok only one problem when it goes up a drop kerb it will come to a sudden stop switch off then on again and its fine till the next little bump up hill never down hill,any ideas and what would you say is an old age for any make scooter..
Hi, is that the one where the battery case sits on the contacts, if so that is a area you need to look at as this has been a common fault area , the string contacts get weak so losing contact when being jolted etc.

The Hand Control has probably bent in from use. ( Where she Pushes the throttle Control )
Grab a hold of it and bend it out towards you slightly
The part about the indicator going down when she moves and back up when she stops is normal

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

SOURCE: Scooter stops intermittenly
Hi. Does the machine stop suddenly, or does it slowly stop as it normally would? Does this happen on hills or slopes?
A lot of scooters have a self-resetting circuit breaker connected to the battery leads. If the machine draws to much current ( amps ) then the circuit breaker trips out. After a few minutes the circuit breaker will reset and you can continue.
This could mean that the circuit breaker is faulty or that the motor is drawing to much current, or is burnt out.
Some machines have a very light duty circuit breaker, and these can trip out often. I have changed many of these circuit breakers for this reason.
Check all your battery leads are secure and tight.
If it is still a problem, get a serviceman to check the motor current is what it should be.
Good luck. Neil.

I would check all connections first. I would also see about the wiring harness, is it drawing power from somewhere when there is weight on it.
Is it giving any flash codes?
Or the dash may need to be replaced.
