Question about Pride Maxima 3-Wheel 3-Wheel Scooter

1 Answer

Brakes start dragging and battery goes dead fast.

My wife's Pride Maxima Scooter will not hold a charge because the brakes start dragging. Whenever we take the scooter out to the store, it is not long before the brakes start dragging and the scoote is out of power. She says that it seems to happen after she has backed up, but I do not know if that has anything to do with it or not.

First have the batteries load tested. Also with that put a ohm meter on the brake. It should be around 60 ohms.

Pride Celebrity x. Batteries drain quickly despite new full charged batteries. When scooter is pushed in freewheel- brakes engage every few feet. Have to turn scooter on/off to get brakes to release.


hi Diane, the brake engaging is by design, distance is the key here

Have you tried another charger ?

1. when pushing the scooter in freewheel before the brake engages , is it easy to push ? what can happen is the brake does not release 100%, a easy test is to run the scooter then put your hand on the brake unit , is it hot ? be careful because it could be very hot , this will prove the brake is not releasing fully.

Regards
Rob

This problem is on my Pride Mobility Scooter/Wheelchair. I am trying to figure how to keep from having to turn my key off and back on to free up my brakes after they stay sticking after I come to a co


I am not familiar with this but it sounds like a problem in the control module or one of the sensors. You may want to take it to the dealer to get checked out.

Scooter stops after about 3 mile as if battery dead


hi, okay now does this happening every time ? or is the distance variable ?

check the batteries are fully charged, if possible check the batteries with a electrical meter when it stops again , insert the probes in the charger socket the outside ones , the middle on you can ignore , check the voltage , below 23 or 24 volts this means that once you start going again the voltage will drop causing the controller to cut out , they normally cut out at about 18 volts .

Satisfied that's okay now the brake could be breaking down ? do you hear it click when going along ?


At worse your controller could be breaking down

I need immediate help with a problem with my wife's GO GO Elite Traveller 3-wheel scooter. With a fully charged battery, in about 10 to 20 minutes of operating, there is a clicking noise in the area of...


Check the area at the rear of the motor where the brake is attached after operating for a while if you can feel heat or hot at the brake motor area then the brake is sticking causing excess drag this in turn drains the batteries quicker and can be the cause of the clicking sound you hear. If the battery is not getting hot or the motor then the problem could be in the transaxle. Block the rear wheels off the ground and have the wife engage the throttle if you still hear the clicking noise place your hand on the gearbox /transaxle to see if you can feel a vibration in time with the clicking If you feel a vibration then the transaxle/gearbox will need to be changed If you see that the brake is dragging then the brake will have to be replaced If Medicare paid for the wife's scooter then they will pay for 80% of the repair. You can contact the provider that sold your wife the scooter to see if they do repairs or you can contact Repair xpress @1-877-581-3733 to see if they have a tech in your area Hope this helps you

Brake seems to stick on causing battery to run down


Sounds like you have weak batteries or a bad brake. You can measure the brake resistance at the connector between the front and rear halves of the scooter. The brake is good if the resistance measures between 30 to 65 ohms.
You should load test the batteries to see if they are good. It takes battery power to run the motor and release the brakes. Weak batteries will cause the brakes to drag and the scooter to run slow.
A new brake costs about $70 and new batteries start at $40 each.
If you do not have a beep fault code, nothing has burnt out yet. I would have the scooter checked out soon by a qualified technician. Hope this helps.

I have a 2006 Pride Maxima. Problem comes and goes.


Hi Alex. Does this problem happen when you first turn on the scooter, or does it happen while you are riding the scooter.
It might possibly be that the speed lever ( wig wag ), is not correctly adjusted, or is worn.
Test the lever is correctly adjusted by sitting on the machine with the key on. Slowly move the lever in the forward direction, until you hear the brake click. Take note of how far the lever moved. Now move the lever in the reverse direction until you hear the brake unit click. The distance the lever moved, should be the same in both cases.

Also while you are driving your machine try moving the ends of the lever slowly up and down. If this makes the machine change speed erratically, then you probably need a new throttle pot, or speed lever assembly.

Does your machine show any fault codes or flashing LED's.
Hope this helps. Neil.

AXS Mobility scooter loses battery power quickly.


hi , two problems can cause this,

1. batteries are weak, is the charger ok ? just because it 's green does not mean the charger is ok, can you validate the charge, try some other batteries ?,

2. Brake be activated or on at all times,
The best way to prove this is to remove the brake mech from the side of the motor completey now try the scooter, if the problem goes away then check the resistance of the brake, is it open or shorted ?
If you feel the brake, batteries and charger are working ok then the controller must be activating the brake and this is the fault but please double check the voltage on the brake leads.

Wiring for pride rally scooter.


Sorry but your probably going to have to get this to a service technician. That is a big problem you have there. Most wiring is`nt even color co-ordinated so it`s not a matter of matching up colors. I`d call a professional,

Battery power on mobility scooter


Most scooters show a drop on the battery level meter when in use, as long as it is`nt slowing down it should`nt be a prob. I mean,when you engage the throttle you ARE putting a load on the batteries,so it`s only par for the course that the indicator would drop a bit.
