First of all,7 years is a long time for a scooter. Your batteries are probably shot and I would suggest you take it to a service tech to get it fixed. This would be the best way to keep this scooter running.

Help with a Pride mobility scooter


Pride Mobility Products

There are 8 different models of the Pride Go Go Scooter. They vary in number of fuses, size of fuses, and number of wheels among other things.

Your manual may indicate the particular model you have. If you no longer have the manual, there may be a model number on it that would assist in finding an online manual.

Here is a way to contact technical support for the Go Go:

More on Celebrity X motor overheating. Brushes look good. Brake does not seem to be dragging, Batteries are about 5 years old but hold a good charge when not in use for months,


If the motor is overheating, it is drawing far more current out of
the batteries than it is supposed to. Assuming it is 2 x 13v x 33ah
batteries, these are good for about 2 to 3 years on my scooter and 'wheelchair. AGM (absorbent glass mat) lead acid batteries do deteriorate over time due to battery chemistry.

Although the batteries may appear to take a charge
and the voltage 12.6volt x 2 = 25.2 volts nominal, with no load
on them, the motor controller takes a whack of current to get you going.

I have an digital voltmeter/ammeter installed on my Pride XL scooter and I was amazed how much current the motor/motor controller takes from the batteries. 50 to 80amps on startup.

If the battery voltage drops due to the age of the batteries, as the
energy is being used up from them, the current required by the
motor for rotation has to go up, and that will cause overheating of the controller and the motor. It is Ohms law plain and simple
the less voltage available-the more current required to do the
work and current creates the heating effect.

I replace my batteries every two years. Can't take a chance on
being stuck with discharged batteries.

Scotter will lock after running 10 feet


Check the batteries, charger, state of battery charge. Have the batteries load tested. Replace the batteries if over 2 years old and they load test bad

I have the Shoprider Delux scooter.I brought it second hand.I put in a new battery but its not holding the charge. I seem to have to charge it up before any trips out.When its fully charged and I go about...


Yvonne,

When you say that you put in a new battery, I hope you mean new batteries. This particular scooter takes 2 batteries and just changing one will leave the remaining one in poor condition. Make sure that you have replaced the batteries with the correct size and type. This scooter takes 2, 40 amp hour batteries. Sealed gel AGM batteries are preferred. The batteries should have the number 40 on them with a date code. You need new, fresh batteries to have them work properly. A date code tag of A1 indicates the A month(1st month) or January of 2011 (1 is for 2011). If you are not sure of the battery condition a local shop can load test them for you.
There is a possibility with a 5 year old scooter that a worn motor/brake will cause excessive current draw and drain your batteries. A qualified technician can determine this for you with a service call.
Hope this helps.
