Question about Pride New Mobility Victory XL 4 Wheel Scooter

1 Answer

Hi, have a shoprider TE-889XL. Unit has new batteries and has had both the speed and throttle potentiometer replaced over the last 3 years to cure erratic throttle. Now with fully charged batteries it can somedays do 20km with no issue. The next day on the same run it'll decide the batteries are flat and stop half way through, showing next to no charge on the LED display. Then turn it off and wait 5 mins, back on it'll show fully or mostly charged and I can drive off again and complete the journey. Any ideas as to the erratic battery charge indicator? I have had the batteries tested again and they are showing fine.

On older units this is a fairly common issue with loose, burned contacts at the battery terminal, battery harness plugs and circuit breaker. Check, clean and lube all the power connectors with a petroleum jelly. Don't use WD-40. Then retighten the connectors.
Another issue may be a bad key switch. Intermittent contacts can often be detected by wiggling the key when it starts acting up.

    It's most lively the either the batteries suffering from the load effect and or the electronic board inside the tiller that controls the segment display has become very sensitive..

Hello,

The problem of your legend XL can view from two different ways and also be view at same time from point.

1). From the wire connections and
2). From the ulterlator (i.e motor battery changer).

What you are to do to fix up this problem is to carefuly trace the wire of the power connector if it providing power on to the battery ,if dose not then it means that there is a power faile from the power which has been the couse of the power faile of the battery.
Then the wireing programm will need to be rerun so a to solve the battery problem.

Thank you and thank for using fixya.

SOURCE: I have a pride victory xl8. Problem - was running

All scooters have a protection system built in to prevent burning up the motor, and the user, should the scooter overheat. It sounds like yours overheated. If the temp. outside was warm to hot, and your weight is near the weight limit for the scooter, and you are taxing the motors over a hill, or unstable terrain, then the scooter goes into "limp home mode", or just enough to get you a bit aways, and then it will turn off. After a few minutes to cool off, it will go again, but shut down fairly quickly because it takes a spell to let the whole transaxle-motor assembly to get cool.

Check your weight, and anything else you may be carrying with you on the scooter. Check the terrain, and incline you are going against. Throttle down for all these occassions. If you overloaded the system at some point, then you may have overheated the brushes. Remove them (2) with a standard screwdriver and see if the copper coil is still flexible and springy. If not, replace it/them.

The damage may already be done, so it may need a new motor/transaxle assembly. An expensive proposition I'm afraid.

SOURCE: I have a Pride Legnd..the scooter started loseing

hi, first you need to check the connections to the batteries then to the motor controller, and don't dismiss the speed pot, disconnect the speed pot and try a normal 5K pot inplace of it, if the scooters responds you find the problem just a case of getting the right speed pot. Check the freewheel switch, normally it located on the motor side.

Hello

Check the following:

* Circuit breaker on main control box is tripped
* Fuse blown (check fuse in main control box assembly).
* Incorrect polarity at battery terminals
* Dead batteries.
* Charging cable is still connected to charging receptacle
* One of the cable connections at the main control box is loose.
* Control connection cable disconnected
* Broken key switch
* Throttle stuck fully open
* Throttle control potentiometer broken.
* Speed potentiometer broken
* Battery voltage too low.
* Faulty charging cable.
* Charger not working.
* Charging circuitry in main control box assembly not working


If these check OK, the problem is likely to in the control connection cable or upper control box Verify that the upper control box is getting 24V. (Blue wire on red connector.)

* If the upper control box is not getting 24V, replace control connection cable

* If the upper control box is getting 24V, check key switch operation and verify wiring in the upper control box. Trace voltage from keyswitch on to find where the problem occurs. (Replace upper control box if necessary.)

* Charge batteries with a 12V charger or replace if necessary.

* Ohm test the charging cable - replace if necessary.

* Test scooter with a different charger, if new charger works, replace charger.

* Check wiring in main control box assembly - replace in line relay if necessary
* If batteries, charger, and all wiring is good, replace controller PCB. (Note the model number for the PCB, for example 1208-2330.)

The throttle potentiometer, which the throttle lever is attached to, is a component that is very prone to wear. Often there is a bad or uneven surface on the sliding contacts that can give poor performance or surging throughout the throttle range. I have had to replace several during the warranty period. According to your beep code description there could be a bad or intermittant component or a loose wiring connection of the speed pot, throttle pot or front to rear harness. I usually replace the speed potentiometer and the throttle potentiometer at the same time because these two components are interconnected. There could be a loose connection in the front console or loose connector. It is also a good idea to check the front to rear wiring harness connectors and harness for cuts or shorts. This also gives a 7 beep code. Check for binding of the throttle lever on the console case and a bent throttle shaft and mounting bracket. If the scooter is less than a year old it should be covered under warranty. Keep in mind that replacing these components under warranty requires a factory certified tech at a dealer. I hope this helps.

I need a new battery and charger and every where I have called either pushes me off to some plaace else that doesn't answer or a place never calls me back. Where can I get these items?


The type of batteries required by your scooter are 12volt 10 Amps, you will need two of them. They can most likely be purchased at any industrial battery store like Interstate Battery or Batteries Plus. For the charger, you will most likely need to contact Shoprider direct OR a licensed distributor of Shoprider products for that to make sure that the charger will fit into your scooter. Shoprider Mobility is 1-800-743-0772. Another company that sells Shoprider products and may be able to assist you is Marc's Mobility at 800-677-6293.
I hope this information is helpful- good luck!

Constant beeping, won't run


The beeping on shopriders usually means that the Main Control Box is faulty. It may also be caused by the Throttle Pot being out of neutral. This is a common promlem on this model of scooter as they use a Plastic throttle control lever instead of a metal one. Unfortunately, the plastic one's sometimes slip round slightly causing the above problem. Throttle pots can be very difficult to set to neutral without a multimeter so may be best left to you local dealer.

I have never heard of the echo, but there are several sites on the internet that sell scooter batteries. You can also buy your batteries direct from shoprider.com at this link

The batteries are about $70 each, and there are two of them in the pack.
