Question about Pride Mobility Victory 3 Wheel Electric Scooter

Open Question

I just bought a Drive Medical Phoenix 3 mobility scooter on ebay. It was "new in opened box". It does not run. 7 flashes of red light on LED battery power indicator. This is apparently a "speed pot error". Screws to tiller head were taped to tiller and tiller head taped closed which indicates someone had been looking for a solution. If minor fix, I would rather not have to get it reboxed and returned to seller. We cut the box up to remove it. Any ideas? I have not found a local repair technician.

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: NO DRIVE ON MY PRIDE REVO MOBILITY SCOOTER

You can try to do this with the cover off, just in case it is not seated properly and holding the lever from fully engaging. The actual swithc is a small microswitch down at the brake, and it can get dirt in it and that will stop it from working, or it may even fail, and need to be replaced. So I would:
1) try it woth the shroud off the motor using.
2) look for dirt around the switch.
3) take a paperclip and jump the scooter side of the switch to bypass the microswitch on the scooter, be careful not to short the jumper to the scooter frame.

Let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: what makes the speed pot go bad on a 3 wheel celebrity x scooter

Yup you gt a code seven failure code, speed pot malfunction . What pots typically do is that they oxidise. This pt is aa variable rersistor that opeates between 0 - 30k ohms. When tuning the pot it shoud ram up and down smoothly. To test for this
You may also need a VOM meter only $9
http://www.amazon.com/Mastech-YG188-Pocket-size-analog-multimeter/dp/B00064CH6A/ref=sr_1_8?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1339024102&sr=1-8
Disconnect batteries from the scooter. Simply attach the multimeter to the pots terminals, select correct ohms scale and watch the needle. Th needle when turning the pot should movee gracefully up to 30k down to zero as the pot dial scooter speed increases. Faaailure is detected when the needle jumps around, the oxidation causes the pot to connect inteermitently. USE CRC CONTACT Cleaner to get the oxidation out of the pot. The potss are not sealed so there are little holes you can spray into. Use liberal of cleanner.

Why would the power indicator blink?


The amount of times the light(s) blink is a flash code that indicates what the problem is. Count the number of times it flashes then pauses. We can answer your question when we know what flash code you are having.

The red light flashes 5 times scooter will not move


I would look at the freewheel lever. Disengage and then engage the freewheel and see if this corrects the problem. If not, you may have a bad freewheel switch.

Phoenix 3 battery charge idicator


Hi, is it possible for a picture of this ??? the reason being they used two diif versions so I want to be sure...

By the way you say you changed the batteries but what about the charger, are you 100% sure that working okay as in charging the batteries to a ideal voltage level around 27.5 DC ,max voltage should no more than 28.2 volts DC, this will give you a 100% usage of the batteries in question...

Just bought this from an individual who knew nothing about it. Scooter is in excellent condition however it has been sitting for a bit. The problem is the scooter only goes forward when in the High speed...


Jade
This model Drive Phoenix 3 wheel is found for sale at pharmacies and is subject to floor model abuse.

Most common abuse is not recharging batterys and letting them sulfate thus
reducing life of of charge.

I have found that the foward and back-up levers have been bent
by people sitting and squeezing both levers at the same time. the resulting misshaping of the levers results in a very slow speed comand to the controller because of limitted movment of speed control. The result is that main control (turtle/hare) must be advanced to fast (hare) position to get scooter to move.

I have had success straightening levers by carefully bending them in opposite direction on my Phoenix 3W ( which was a clearence item with no warranty.)

The real (legal)solution is ordering a new lever having a technician
replace it so as not to void warranty.

Hope this helps....jth1939

DRIVEMEDICAL PHOENIX 3 WHEEL Just bought it and charged it for 10hours. When I put battery into scooter, all the battery lights come on- 2red 1yellow 2green.....so is it charged? are the connections loose?...


Wez Thats a normal indication of a full charge. The battery level indicator will go down as you use the scooter. Always charge the scooter overnite if you use it a good bit during the day. With new batteries it will take 8-10 charging to break them in and operating at 100%. Always store fully charged and if not used alot charge once a week after you have charged the batteries 8-10 times

Hope this helps
