Have you checked your fuses with a continuity checker, they all my look OK, but Looks can fool you especially with the new type of two prong square colored fuses!

SOURCE: After a period of use the Scooter turns itself off.

sounds like it might be a bad throttle pod, or the brake is overheating. If you can pull the rear shroud off and drive it for a while you can check to see if the brake is overheating. Be careful when checking it because if it is really hot it will burn your fingers. The throttle pod can be checked with an ohm meter but i'm not sure off the top of my head what reading you should get. let me know if you would go that far and i'll get it for you.

SOURCE: no movement, forward or reverse

sounds like it is in neutral, look for a lever on the bottom, rear of the scooter to pull up

SOURCE: little gem mobility scooter brake not working properly

The throttle part has slip round, a way to test this is to put hte buggy in reverse slightly and it shoud stop, meaning that how much the throttle has slipped round. Take the top cover off and there should be a allen screen on the throttle stem, undo and readjust.

SOURCE: Forward/Reverse switch not working Revo Pride

Could it be in free-wheel mode. Most Prides have a pull up knob at the rear of the scooter.

Pride celebrity x scooter flashes 6 times and s ometimes 5 times


hi, they are good readings, the brake resistance is a bit low...however does the brake click when moving the throttle lever to go forward or backwards ?

if the brake is not releasing the scooter will never move...

does the throttle lever feel loose ? you need to convince yourself that the throttle part is working correctly , if you double checked everything including the brake and connectors then we need to look at the controller ..

I do offer a free testing service...

Hi my days strider midi4 keeps going in reverse for about 4 seconds after you take the throttle off


spares sounds like the throttle pot is not being centered upon release making the scooter move in reverse or forward depending on which way it is off center. try pushing on the thottle lever slowly forward when you stop to see if that stops the creeping. Then you can try to adjust the pot by loosening the lever and retightening it in the forward direction that stops the creeping. You might have to order a new throttle pot assembly to get this working right. Hope this helps

I have a milan mobility scooter,turn the key & it sounds a low


Hi. This sounds difficult. I have had a few scooters move slowly forward or in reverse, but not both. Normally if the speed pot ( wig wag ) is not exactly in the central position, they can do this.
It is possible for a scooter to have your problem, if the speed lever is binding or rubbing on the housing. Normally the lever is returned to the middle by a spring around the speed pot shaft. If this spring is loose or broken, then this could also cause the problem. Sometimes a small spot of oil or grease will help.
To check the speed lever is in the middle, slowly move the lever for forward untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Now release the lever and slowly pull it for reverse untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Make sure that the speed lever moves the same amount for forward as it does for reverse. If not adjust it with the key off.
If you get the machine to drive properly, then change the controller to see if it is OK.
As for the beeping, a lot of machines will go into an error mode if the speed lever is not in the central position when you turn the key on. This is a safety precausion.
Good luck. Neil.
