Carefully read across two pins, without shorting to the case or other pins. You should have 1 hot, one ground, and usually another ground that acts as a charge inhibit to keep the scooter from driving while charging. I would expect to see around 27 Volts DCX on the output, maybe more without a load attached (battery)

I can leave it plugged in for 24 hours and not have a full charge. Is this the batteries or the on board charger


There are a few things to consider with this type of problem.

How old are the batteries. When did you last have them tested. Is the charger output ok on load (test with an amp clamp type meter). is the charger the correct one for these batteries, small output chargers take longer to charge big batteries. Are all connection tight on batteries and anything to do with the charging circuit. Plug and socket type connection do fail on poor connections. Check voltage on batteries when on charge and off charge to see if the charger voltage is getting through to the batteries.

Scooter will not charge. New charger, new batteries, new fuse, still will not charge? Can you help?


Get the batteries load tested and the charger output current checked. May be new but they can still fail. Is it the correct charger for the size of batteries?

Is the key turned off on the scooter while charging?

Can the batteries or my charger be bad on my Pride Jazzy 1113 ATS?


The MK batteries are far superior to Interstate batteries overall.
You can load test the batteries to see if they are working properly with a load tester. Your can test the charger output to the batteries with a digital voltmeter connected to the batteries with the charger plugged in. These 2 tests take less than 10 minutes and can be done at a local auto or scooter shop for nominal expense.
Make sure the charger and battery connections are tight and free of corrosion. On the VSI of the Jazzy 1113 there is a notorious problem with 8 pin connector and 3 pin molex at the back. You can clean these connectors but a complete electrical rebuild of the pins and receptacles is sometimes required if significant corrosion has set in. Try spraying electrical cleaner and use green Scotchbrite to clean the metal tabs on the 8 pin connector. Make sure the 3 pin molex sits in the receptacle and is making good contact.
Hope this helps.

Can i over charge my mobility scooter go go pride


Yes you can overcharge a battery, it all depends on the charger your using. Most chargers are single stage chargers. Most scooters come with a single stage charger. My scooter has a built in single stage charger What this type of charger does is output a constant 24v @ 4amps.The problem is batteries amperage requirements decrease as the battery charges. An overcharge will occur when the battery is charged. It requires very little amperage to maintain a charge on a fully charged battery. A single stage charger like mine will output 4amps regardless of the state of charge of the battery. Batteries bring charged with single stage chargers loose their electrolyte. What happens is overcharged batteries break down the electrolyte into oxygen and hydrogen. So overcharging will cause a battery to "boil-out" its electrolyte. Batteries don't work without electrolyte. In the old days there were only single stage chargers. That was the state of the art back then. So to cope with the constant overcharging batteries had refill ports where you could replenish the electrolyte using distilled water.

Scooter batteries are far and away different from the lead acid of the 1970's. Scooter batteries are sealed, they are deep cycle, they use a glass mat soaked in gelled electrolyte. These glass mat batteries optimize the electrolyte used so they can use allot less of it. These newer batteries have a lot more power in a lot smaller package but they have a draw back, they must be charged properly. You can absolutely can not charge these batteries with a single stage charger. Actually you can charge with this device but you will loosed electrolyte each time you charge.

I use a three stage charger 24v @ 5amp. This charger s different from a single stage. Its what they term a "smart charger" it monitors the state of charge of the battery. As the battery charges it turns down the amperage. When the battery is fully charged the amperage is turned low enough were the charge is maintained. The entire charging process is designed to preserve electrolyte. In short this type charger will not overcharge the battery.

I'm assuming you have a full charge on your batteries? The problem is that the charger can be fulled into thinking that your batteries are at a full charge when they are not. The battery will put out he correct voltage so your voltage gage reads right. The battery will put out the correct resistance so the charger will see a charged battery. Chargers work by resistance the lower the resistance the harder the charger works to charge the battery. So the only way to determine the real state of charge is to bring the batteries to a battery shop. Have them load test the battery in your presence if the battery is new. This is not a pass or fail test.What we are looking for is the upper limit of the cranking amps the battery will output.They may tell you this battery isn't supposed to be measured that way because in battery is not used to start a car. Well most of the equipment is geared for measuring car batteries. For what we are doing here it doesn't matter. For my scooter batteries i use two 12v 35amp/hr batteries. Have them grab a new one off the shelf, have them find the upper limit of the amp output. What happened to me is i didn't watch them do this test. The instrument he was using will give you a pass.or fail indication at a preset level of about 150 amp/hr unless you manually input a higher level to test for. This was a new battery and they want it to pass. I had them find the upper limit of a new off the shelf battery by entering higher values into the test instrument until it failed back off on the value until i found it passed. A new battery like the one my scooter uses will put out close to 500 cranking amps. Well when i tested my battery it barely reached 200 cranking amps. So in fact this battery doesn't have the capacity of the off the shelf battery. So as you load it the voltage goes down. My motor controller will detect that and give me a fail indication.

oK if this is not the problem we can look for amp leaks. Put a amp meter between the battery and the load. Turn the scooter off, get a reading?.If you do something is either on or a resistive short drawing down your battery. Disconnect stuff until the reading is zero. What ever you disconnected last will give you the section of the scooter the problem is coming from. Like if you disconnect the control head and it drops to zero i would start there. Turn the scooter on there should be an indication, but it should be under an amp. Now get the rear wheels up so that they can rotate freely. Apply just enough power to move the wheels. Look at the meter if its a analog meter does it jump around. Does the motor stall at any time. If the first thing happens you have a partially shorted winding in the motor. IF the second thing happens the meter will jump up or down indicating either an open or shorted winding.
Now floor it jot down the amp draw. IS it excessive? We check this by doing the math. My scooter use two 12 v 35 amp/hr batteries hooked in series. So i have a 24v system @ 35amp/hr, the scooter has a loaded range of 25 mile at a speed of 5 mph.So my battery life is going to be about 5 hours. So we can say the motor loaded on a flat surface will use about 7 amp/hr. So running the motor flat out unloaded is going to be less than 7 amp/hr. My scooter's motor runs at about >5 amp/hr unloaded. Hope this helps

I have not used my go.go elite traveller plus for several months now,and when i went to switch it on the battery light would not come on.I have tried charging the battery and the power light illuminates...


Ann You probably have a problem with the charger and your batteries. If it has sat for several months and wasn't charged during that time the batteries are too low to be charged and the charger cannot pickup the charge on the batteries. Now check the charger to see if it has a fuse if it does check the fuse to make sure it is good If the fuse is ok then if Charlie has a voltmeter he cqn check the output of the charger at the 3 prong plug set the meter to 200 volts dc and touch the 2 outter pins of the plug careful not to touch the barrel of the plug. the voltage should be 27+ volts output. If you aren't getting any reading then the charger needs to be replaced. Hope this helps

Pride Sundancer. Batteries will not charge. both batteries test about 50% charge. When I plug charger in to 110v, the needle on rear of unit barely moves. When I turn on key, charge indicator on on dash...


batterys may be to low for charger to pick them back up.Sounds like new batterys to me .dobble check that charger just in case by volt testing the neg and positive wires on one battery ,When its hooked up .then do the other to see if power is getting where its suppose to be. Your checking for volt changed .Battery charger checks out good replace batterys that should do it.

Hope I was of some help have a good day.

Batteries won't charge


Hi. Sounds like there is a faulty connection somewhere between the charger and the batteries. Are the batteries connected correctly. The charger uses the voltage level in the batteries to regulate itself. If there is a faulty connection, then the charge will not operate. Use a multi-meter to check if the batteries are connected correctly. There should be 24 to 26 volts across both batteries.
This fault can also be caused by a faulty charger socket. Check for any signs of melting or heat damage. There might also be a disconnected wire in the plug on the charger itself.Good luck. Neil.

I have a golden 3 wheel scooter dose charger


If the charger is working correctly, it should turn itself off automatically (may go into float chrarge depending on type of charger). There should be an LED or an amp meter on the charger to tell you when the charge is complete. When the batteries are charged, you should be able to leave the charger switched on and it should cause no harm UNLESS the charger is faulty, in which case it will continue charging and damage the batteries. You should be able to tell if this is happening as the batteries will become very warm. If the batteries are losing their charge after you have switched the charger off, it is most likely that your batteries need replacing. Failing that, you may have a short somewhere which unfortunately, could be difficult to find.
