Low battery indicator

I have just had new batteries for my colt pride. I have charged it several times but the battery indicator does not go up to full and goes down one before I get to the end of my short road. Any ideas.

Look for corrosion on the battery terminals. Make sure they are clean and tight. The charger cannot overcome severely discharged batteries. Seperate the two batteries and use a 12 automotive battery charger to bring up the charge. Then reconnect the batteries and use the 24 volt charger to top off the charge.

A fully charged battery should be over 12 volts. You may need to change your batteries.

SOURCE: battery power on mobility scooter

The Hand Control has probably bent in from use. ( Where she Pushes the throttle Control )
Grab a hold of it and bend it out towards you slightly
The part about the indicator going down when she moves and back up when she stops is normal

SOURCE: have a harsh jerking movement while using

This is a common problem often caused by the potentiometer(pot) in the centre of the Wigwag (Accelerator.) This part takes a lot of “abuse” and the pot causes an intermittent electrical connection resulting in a very jerky ride. Try spraying a contact cleaner spray in the pot but most often the potentiometer will need to be replaced by a technician. Regards Chris…

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.

My Pride maxima scooter light blinks 1 time on and off repeatedly and meter indicates full charge and scooter runs but will not take a charge with 3 month old batteries


Have the new batteries tested even if they are fairly new, I have seen newer batteries than this fail on many occasions. Also have the charging voltage checked to verify it is within specs.

Pride colt . fully charged batteries but no power to lights indicators or drive


hi, okay have you checked the fuses located on the tiller stem normally located under a black plastic cover ?

Your batteries may be fully charged but the voltage is not enough to power up the controller, sigh of a dodgy charger ? , bad batteries ? ? check the battery voltage , should be at least 24volts
The horn will work as it bypasses the controller logic.

Two red flashing led lights flashing. Constantly get the same problem fix and am tired of this problem had 4 controlers replaceded and several other things done almost $10,000 dollars done last year alone...


The 2 flashing red lights indicate a low battery. Did you have the batteries replaced? and did you have the charger checked? The charger could not be giving you a full charge or you didn't charge the batteries correctly. It takes about 9-10 charges to bring the batteries to 100% operating capacity. Always charge the batteries before using after installing new ones and then charge nightly when you sleep. When you get up in the morning the batteries should be fully charged and last all day. Never charge more than 12 hours and always store or put up fully charged Hope this helps and sorry that no one can seem to help you except spend your money needlessly

My scooter has a code 31 that says has to be cleared before it will run. we were gone for several months, whe nI came home we charged it up but won't start has a code 31. Book says it has to be cleared to...


Sounds like you need new batteries. This code indicates a low battery condition.
If you have a digital voltmeter measure the voltage of each battery. Above 13 volts is best, 12 volts indicates a 50% charge. The total voltage when you add the two batteries together needs to be above 17 volts for the electronics to work.
Batteries that sit for several months may not take a charge. You can try charging them separately with a car charger set to gel/deep cycle setting to bring the voltage up. Make sure they are disconnected from the scooter and do this only for a short time, keeping your eye on them. The batteries may be too old and the plates sulfated by sitting too long.
A new set of U-1 batteries is my best recommendation. They are available locally and on line at a discount. If you install them your self you could save over $100 on the labor cost alone.
To clear the code install the new batteries and turn the scooter off and on. The code will clear itself when you disconnect the batteries. Charge the new batteries fully before use. Hope this helps.

I just bought new batteries for my Pride Ultra Go Go, but can't get them to start charging when I plug the charger directly into the outlet. Help please.


1.Make sure you installed them correctly.
2.Check the voltage on the batteries. If either (or both) register less than 11 volts, either return them for ones that have 12 volts, or attempt to bring them up to 12 volts with an automobile battery charger. Once brought up to 12 volts, install them, then make sure you recharge them with the supplied charger/adapter before or when the on-board indicator it shows low (red). If the battery voltage drops too low, the supplied charger simply won't even try to charge them.
