Question about Health & Beauty
Scooter switches on but will not run green light flashes in a sequence of 8 short flashes a pause and then continues to repeat the 8 flash sequence. Bateries have been changed out for newer ones, all contacts have been cleaned and made sure that all spring loaded contacts are free. No loose wires and fuse in head is ok. Motor works as tested on a separate battery supply. Any ideas as to what to check next?

Are you sure the batteries are charged ? Is the Battery charger charging ok ? Are the batteries connected ? take off seat and cover to check battery leads, does the key fit in the lock okay ?

On some scooters it is possible to change the polarity of the motor. If its a two brush motor (most are) you can just swap the red and black wires around in the connector plug for the motor. Make sure you get the right wires if you do this but I have to point out that there is obviously a problem with the scooter and I would strongly advise you to get it looked at by your local dealer as the problem is potentially serious and may cause other problems aswell. I cant really understand why it would only go backwards. May be a throttle pot problem or main controller fault. Either way, as I said, best get it looked at as even if you do swap the wires, it is most likely that the scooter will only travel forward at the usual speed for reverse, normally 2mph! Hope this helps...

This sounds she has tripped her circuit breaker. It works just like the one on your house, when you ask too much of it it suddenly goes 'pop' and seems to be dead.
Looks like you have the same scooter as mine, it should be a little white button on the back of the base. If you follow this link, it will give you a pdf version of the older model pride victory manual, (Mine is a three, they are up to about 10!) See fig. 8 on page 20 and 'Circuit Breaker' on page 21. Also, Page 33 has the troubleshooting info. Hope this helps.
