Hi. 7 beeps is fault code for a faulty speed potentiometer. Might also be a broken wire on the pot or a faulty connector. Most times, a new pot will fix the problem.
Good luck. Neil.

If your battery is a year old should replace it a new one, When battery reach in a year the ampere rate is getting weak. And to prevent that you should always check the battery water level if your battery is a maintenance type. Feel free to send feed back best regards.

SOURCE: Pride Legend 3-wheel scooter. I


This problem can be caused by a faulty signal from the throttle lever to the processor due to an intermittent failure of the throttle lever or the temperature switch for the motor is showing an "over heat " condition & the processor shuts down the system , until the switch is cycled. This will need to be checked & tested by a technician to verify the problem for repair.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: go go traveller mobility scooter lurches forward

That lever is attached to a pot. Pots have this nasty habit of oxidizing. You can either replace it or get some CRC QD Contact Cleaner. Wash it down trying to get as much cleaner into the pot as you can. These pots are normally not sealed find a little hole and spay it there. While your in the control head use the cleaner to clean anything you find in there. Stall having problems contact me.

My scooter won't start when it does it won't go in reverse whenever your going straight it won't slow down and stop you have to coast till it stops Judy Carter.

You have a dangerous situation there, The throttle does not sound like it is attached very well to your lever. When you release the lever and the scooter keeps going! This is not safe. The throttle must be in the center of the throttle pots range. Most throttle pots are 5000 ohms. So the center is 2500 ohms or in neutral. The the throttle lever must be checked for cracks in the middle, which release the pressure of the setscrew on the pot shaft. also the return spring may be broken, which would cause a similar situation. Please check these things or get a tech on this before using this scooter again, for your safety and others safety. Scooter Doctor App

My reverse goes faster than my forward what's wrong

Sounds like the throttle is connected backwards. The parking brake maybe hanging up. if the scooter is run for 10 mins forward, then carefully check with your hand that the parking brake is warm and not hot. Hot indicates brake slowing you down and making the motor work too hard. For other answers to Scooter Problems goto my free app.

Go Go Scooter travels in reverse, but when going forward it comes to an abrupt stop every few seconds. Everything else appears to work normally. Any ideas?

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 have a ctm scooter the battries are charged fully when i switch on the scooter will not work switch off and on again it then will travel a few feet before stopping

I would say the throttle pot is slightly out of neutral allowing the scooter to travel slightly when turned on. Try moving the throttle lever slightly in the opposite direction to which the scooter is travelling (i.e. if the scooter moves forward when turned on, press the lever to go backwards, but only a small amount). If the scooter stops and you hear a clicking noise from the back of the scooter (this would be the brake clicking on) then that would be your problem. Would just need a small adjustment but best left to a dealer as it has to be sopt on! Sometimes scooters will not work if the throttle is slightly out but if its only a very small amount out of neutral, it might sometimes work in the manner you have suggested. We have come accross this fault on a few occasions. Hope this helps...
