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.

How to extend the battery life of Razor Scooter Batteries


You can extend the life of your scooter's battery if you take proper care of it. Most people report trouble in getting more than a year or two out of their razor scooter battery set. This is actually a common problem with vehicle batteries.

  • Keep your battery charged
It is recommended to keep your battery fully charged to avoid the build-up of sulfate-ion inside it. Sulfate-ion accumulates when the battery is in a discharged state for a long time.This is the most common reason of premature depletion of lead acid batteries. This can be easily avoided if the scooter battery is kept in a constantly charged state.

  • Charge you Razor Scooter Battery during the Off-Season
Even if not used Sealed Lead Acid Batteries will self discharge over long periods. This will leave the battery in a not fully charges state which will enable the sulfate-ions to build up inside the internal plates which will slowly deplete the battery's capacity. In order to prevent that, you should charge the razor scooter battery at least once every three months when it is not in service.

  • Use a Battery Tender
Battery Tender chargers are a great way extend the life of your SLA batteries as they are designed to fully charge and maintain a battery at proper storage voltage without the damaging effects caused by trickle chargers.

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

Barb the flashes indicate a brake problem. Make sure that you aren't in freewheel. Move the freewheel lever located at the rear of your scooter up and down a few times then put it in drive mode and turn the scooter on and see if you still get 5 flashes If so you will have to replace the brake assembly 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.
