Turn the dial-a-speed down to half-way. If issue continues check motor wiring. The click is likely the brake disengaging - which it should. If motor is okay (under 2 ohms) then you likely have a bad speed pot and/or engager assy. These are wear items and are usually replaced every 3-5 years.
you could have a bad throttle pot o speed pot possibly a key switch problem aswell. Hi I a Phillip the "DFW Mobility Specialist"send me a email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you live in or near the Dallas Fort Worth area.
I have owned my own business for 3 years and have been working on scooters and powerchairs for 15 years. I know exactly what the problem is. I can almost tell you what kind of scooter you have. In the future give as much info about the scooter as possible.
Your problem is the throttle pot or somtime called the engager.
You can do one of two things. 1. Open the faceplate to your tiller. look for a lock nut on the throttle pot. loosen it, on the bottom of the pot is a slot for a flat tip screwdriver. Take the key out before you start this procedure. You can turn the screw slot on the pot a little at a time, one way then the other. Turn the key back on, turn the speed pot to lowest speed so the scooter won't take off on you. Once you align the throttle pot to neutral tighten the lock nut. The easiest way to fix your problem is:
2. Replace the throttle pot.
Your problem will be fixed.
csr4 Well it could be the throttle pot or the speed control pot My leanings is toward the throttle pot since it works in reverse with the speed pot not being changed but not forward. when you are just changing the position of the throttle to forward thereby changing the pot wiper and getting the error. Contact Pride about the problem at 1-800-800-8586 and ask for Tech support for scooters and explain your problem to them. I hope this helps
i would suggest there is either a loose connection or the speed control has failed, the scooter will still run but at a slow speed, the part is fairly standard in all scooters. if i can be any furthur assitance please email me rick @ lxrixta.co.uk (remove the spaces)
