You might be over the weight capacity for this little scooter. When you overload it, the controller senses and overheating and slows the scooter down to prevent burning up the electrical system. When it has cooled, it will operate normally again. If you aren't overloading it, or if the previous owner did in case it's used, then the PC board needs to be replaced which is located inside the top of the tiller cover and the speed pot conects to this board. They aren't too expensive; about $30.00 from a Pride dealer. Take the shroud covering the tiller assembly apart by removing the screws that hold the clamshell cover together. Take the knob off the speed control and you will see an electronics board with several snap-on connections to it. This is what gets replaced.

The speed control is defective. Its going to full speed without the slow start. Get it checked by a local specialist.
Before you do that make sure the speed setting control is set properly.

1. Motor breaking down.. ( Resistance changing ), Brush less motor otherwise check the brushes...
2.Brake coming on so slowing the scooter down.
3.The output stage of the controller is breaking down....

Constant beeping but scooter will move

okay there sounds like there either water somewhere or condensation ?

place the whole scooter in a warm room next to a radiator, not too close but close enough so it gets the warmth leave it like this to dry out, this has worked for me, water causing a short either under the tiller panel or where the controller is situated.

My pride go go elite traveler 4 wheel stops randomly often with no beeps. I have replaced the throttle, the speed pot, the brake, and the batteries check out fine.

You may have a loose connection at one of the harnesses or connectors. If there are no codes you may have a bad controller or loose connection at the controller. Slow speed problems may be motor or motor brush problems you can diagnose by visual inspection or a voltmeter. Load test the new batteries and the charger output. Block it up and run it checking and knocking all the components until it quits. I have seen a dragging brake caused by a melted controller harness at the controller connector cause a similar problem. Hope this helps.

My scooter sometimes seems to slow down for no reason on full power. It is like something it holding it back then all of a sudden it is working fine.

Hi. Could be a couple of faults. The throttle pot ( Wig Wag ) could be worn. While you are driving the machine, try moving the ends of the lever up or down slowly, ( not in and out as you usually do for driving ), and see if that makes the speed vary.
Another problem could be faulty battery or motor connectors. I have replaced or removed many battery connectors because of this. Also check battery or motor wirs where they connect to the controller.
If you feel unsure about checking the connectors, get a good serviceman to do it for you. Good luck. Neil.
