Hi, Well it sounds like you have a wire not connected or the Twist throttle part is bad. The best thing is to use Volt meter on each battery and make sure they are at 13 volts of more. If they are 11-12 volts the batteries are no good. When you turn the switch on does it make a Click sound? Take off your battery access panel it is where you put your feet. Your batteries have a red and black wire with a wiring harness attached to them. This is where you want to make sure they are plugged in. If they are Plugged in Your Scooter has to Have a Blown Fuse. Check these out and get back to me with what you find. Batteries last 1 year if you take good care of them.

Hi Ron, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.
