Question about Pride Health & Beauty
Not switched to free wheel the only thing I get is very low power to horn. this is only just over a year old. does anyone have any ideas
Hi, okay have you checked the fuses located on the tiller stem normally located under a black plastic cover ?
Your batteries may be fully charged but the voltage is not enough to power up the controller, sigh of a dodgy charger ? , bad batteries ? ? check the battery voltage , should be at least 24volts
The horn will work as it bypasses the controller logic.

it should show 24v not 13,5volts, sounds like you only measuring one battery,
Check the fuse under the seat and check the reset button,
Could be a bad connection to the batteries or to motor check the B+, B- voltages, should show around 24v.

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.

David, If you are not getting the yellow light on the charger then you have a problem with the charger. What voltage are you getting at the batteries when charging? You can check the charger by removing the end plate where the lights are to see if there is a fuse on the output side of the charger. if there is check to see if the fuse is blown. There probably is a fuse on the other end but since the red light comes on it is good. If you plug the charger into the charger port and put your ear to it you should hear a hum coming from the charger. Hope this helps you

Make sure your freewheel brake is in the DRIVE position. Check your owner's manual for the location of the free wheel lever, ususally it is near the rear of the scooter. If the chair is in DRIVE mode but the wheels will not turn, you may have a motor problem which would require replacing the motors.

Kay the status light flashing indicates a problem. Count the nunber of flashes and your manual should tell you what the error code means. Also check the freewheel lever and make sure it is drive position. Without knowing the number of flashes I can't tell you what the problem might be. Hope this helps
