Question about Health & Beauty
Ew 36 mobility scooter
You may know this already, but if you don't charge it at least once a week, the battery ends up being worthless. So it's really about the battery. Hope this helps.

This scooter require two batteries, not one. It is usually a good idea to replace both batteries at the same time, even though one is obviously bad, and the other "seems" okay. These 12 volt DC batteries (VDC) work in tandem to produce the 24 volts that the scooter operates on. In a perfect world, they would both live a long and happy life, but reality is that some die young, others old. Since they are joined together, the one that's going out saps the life out of the other one, so take a bullet and replace both batteries. Make sure you completely charge the scooter when you get the new ones in. Verify that your charger is working properly. To properly charge the 24 VDC system, the chargers have to have an output of about 26-28VDC. The output must be higher than the rated voltage of the two batteries put together to charge. While you have the shell off the scooter, you can see if the charger is working by measuring across the terminal on each battery with the charger off. Note the meter reading. It should be 12-13 VDC. Put it on the charger and retake the reading, and each battery should show an increase in the voltage due to the boost from the charger. After three hours, each battery should show about a 13.5 VDC reading which should hold above 12 for a good 8-10 miles. Always charge your batteries overnight, and if not in use, disconnect them completely with a full charge on the batteries.

The Sonic has an off board charger. IF the scooter is not charging, you may need to replace it. If you a technically inclined, you can measure the voltage out of the charger, it should be more than 28 V. You may need to contact Pride for more help.

First of all,
Make sure the freewheel lever is unengaged (up or down ?) , this can be tested by pushing the scooter forward , you should hear gearbox clunk,(Freewheel not engaged) Not all scooters sound a alarm when freewheel is engaged.
is the power indicator working okay,
Does the Wig Wam move freely, the thumb throttle part,
Check under the seat to make sure you have not blown or tripped the fuse, if it's a switch simply pressing the button will sort it, if not check the two prong fuse ,
you may also have some reset buttons on the stem so look out for them.
Now let me what you tried

If only one battery is charging than you only have one good battery. You should have BOTH batteries load tested. If you have to replace one than you should replace both. If you only replace one battery then it will shorten the life of the new one.

Cant help with the manual but the solution to your problem will probably be duff batteries. This is most likely but it could lie with a number of other things. May be charger but probably unlikely. If not batteries, I think this may be the electromagnetic brake not releasing properly and dragging the batteries down. You can usually smell if they are not releasing as they get VERY hot and smell similar to a burnt clutch on a car. The brake is attached to the end of the motor. If you can hear a click from the brake when the throttle is pressed, it might be ok (although it should really be tested with a multimeter for resistance and voltage as the fault could lie in the wiring loom). Also, if its not releasing correctly, i may have turned a shade of blue due to heat build up. Other problems could be high resistance within the motor or transaxle. Would need to perform a Motor Draw test to determine which, if any, of these are at fault.
