Question about Pride Mobility Products Hurricane PMV 4-Wheel w/55AH Batteries & Charger + Flat Free Tires - Color Viper Blue - Gray Fabric Seat

1 Answer

After a period of use the Scooter turns itself off.

The scooter is fully charge and runs normally for a period of time. After some time it turns itself off, and in order to start up again the ignition key must be turned off and on several times. Sometime it requires the scooter to be placed in reverse before it can be turned on in the forward postion. As it is an intermittant problem, it has been difficult to pinpoint.

    As your problem is intermittant please try this:

    Next time allow a delay of sixty seconds or more without touching anything or moving the stearing. By trying this it will show if the control unit has indeed not sensed an over load or over current detection of the motor.

    One of the control units protection features requires the throttle to be in nuteral it must be positivly central position or you can't switch on.

    Imadgine your suprise if when switch on you were in a full foward speed selection because a shopping bag was fouling the control. This accounts as a possibility for wiggling the f/r.

Sounds like it might be a bad throttle pod, or the brake is overheating. If you can pull the rear shroud off and drive it for a while you can check to see if the brake is overheating. Be careful when checking it because if it is really hot it will burn your fingers. The throttle pod can be checked with an ohm meter but i'm not sure off the top of my head what reading you should get. let me know if you would go that far and i'll get it for you.

Is it best to keep my scooter on charge all the time or what


Lead acid or deep cycle gel batteries are best kept on trickle charge.

Take care of your batteries
How do I get the most life out of my new batteries?
To maximise the life of your batteries, it is best to complete a full charge for the first 1015 times that you use your scooter. This simply means however far you travel, do not just top-up for a short while, but complete the full charge cycle every time. Your batteries will not work at their best until this process has been carried out and will prolong power and performance. You will find the distance your scooter can travel will gradually increase over its first few weeks as your batteries reach optimum efficiency.
When is it best to charge my batteries?
After 10-15 cycles have been completed, a normal charging routine can be adopted
  • Depending on the capacity of the batteries, the charge time can vary up to a maximum of 16 hours
  • The charger will automatically shut down when the batteries are fully charged, so you do not have to worry about switching it off. This is ideal for overnight charging.
  • Whenever possible try to avoid interrupting a charge cycle. It is always best to complete a full charge cycle as excessive short term charging is detrimental to battery life.
  • For the very best results and to maximise battery life, charge fully before and after use.
  • Please refer to charger indicator lights for battery status.

How do I store and maintain my batteries?
  • If your scooter will not be used for a while or is being stored, make sure the batteries are fully charged first.
  • If your scooter is not being used, make sure the batteries receive a refresher charge every 14 weeks. Alternatively if you are planning not to use your scooter for over 6 weeks, fully charge your batteries and then disconnect.
  • Fully charge the batteries before re-use.
  • Never leave the batteries in a discharged state.
  • Avoid damp, hot or cold extremes when storing your scooter.
  • Batteries are totally sealed and do not require any maintenance apart from charging.

Charging
1.Switch off your scooter and remove key.
2.Plug charger into scooter charge socket.
3.Push charger plug into wall socket and switch socket on.
4.There will be a light sequence on the charger but as all chargers are different, refer to charger instructions.
5.Most scooters will have an inhibit mode which will shut down all the scooters electrics while the charger is plugged in.
6.Only use the charger supplied with your scooter.
7.Do not smoke or use a ***** flame while batteries are being charged.
8.Do not leave charger plugged into your scooter when the charger is switched off as this may discharge your batteries.
9.For a complete charge do not switch off, unplug or interrupt the charge cycle until it is complete.
It is worth considering that in extreme cold weather the time your batteries take to charge can increase by up to 20%. The range of your scooter will also vary based on weather conditions. Also when your batteries reach the end of their useful life, you will find that charging time will become much shorter. The amount of charge the batteries can hold will become less and less as will your scooter range until ultimately they become unusable.

Battery fully charged but not power to run


Measure the battery voltage individually. If each battery has less than 10 volts, charge them with an automotive style NON automatic battery charger.

My scooter will not fully charge


This could be the charger socket is worn and not making a good connection when charging or it could be the charger itself at fault. Now you have changed the batteries, I presume new and both the same type, you need to look at the charging side.

HI Scooter is on charge full time and used daily after 30min i loose the first green light that is OK but if i dont use it for one or two days i loose the first green light only after 10min can you...


well it could be that you overcharged the batteries. You should not leave the scooter on the charger full time. you should charge the scooter nightly while you sleep unplug from the charger when you get up in the morning. the charger should not be on the scooter more than 12 hours per day and that rare. Whenever you have a red and green light on the charger the scooter is fully charged and can be unplugged. Always put it up fully charged and then charge after each use. Your batteries need to be replaced and charge the new ones before use then charge overnight each day that you use the scooter. If you don't use it for a few days you should still be fully charged than charge after use Hope this helps

The motor is screeching and barely moves. Started periodically, now is constant. Drains fully charged battery within minutes.


When the motor is screeching and draining the battery, that indicates that the motor has most likely seized up and is not turning the axle properly, which in turn will drain the batteries quickly as the scooter struggles to move. I strongly recommend discontinuing use of the scooter for your safety until the motor can be replaced; contact the manufacturer for a service call to fully diagnose the problem and give you a quote. If your insurance purchased the scooter for you, they may partially pay for the repair.
Good luck!

DRIVEMEDICAL PHOENIX 3 WHEEL Just bought it and charged it for 10hours. When I put battery into scooter, all the battery lights come on- 2red 1yellow 2green.....so is it charged? are the connections loose?...


Wez Thats a normal indication of a full charge. The battery level indicator will go down as you use the scooter. Always charge the scooter overnite if you use it a good bit during the day. With new batteries it will take 8-10 charging to break them in and operating at 100%. Always store fully charged and if not used alot charge once a week after you have charged the batteries 8-10 times

Hope this helps

How to charge my panterra transport scooter,do i leave switch on or off and for how long?


tony you can charge it either way with switch on or off and if you have used the scooter alot during the day and the battery level lights are in the red charge overnight. The charger light will turn from yellow to green when the batteries are fully charged It really is a good idea to get into the habit of charging overnight wehn you have used the scooter all day. It helps the batteries to recycle them thru a charge cycle when they run down. Now if the scooter is used rarely then make sure it is fully charged when it stored and charge once a week when idle. Hope this helps you

Always check the battery connections first because too many times it is a loose connection or battery bolt. it would happen more if you drive it a long distance, or up a hill and the controller over heats or if you are hitting a bump. when the controller cools down it drives again.
