Maxima scooter key won't turn on

The key won't turn on. I haven't used the scooter in a year or so. I charged it overnight, but now the key won't turn. Could it be frozen from being kept in a cold garage?

Try a (one) drop of sewing machine oil or 3 in 1 to free it up. Over doing it may get oil into the switch under the key tumbler. If everything else fails a new key switch can be gotten from Pride's website

SOURCE: Have Zoom 220 HMV 3 wheel scooter. Charged battery

It is possible the the battery could be damaged after being stored for that length of time. If it was wasn't completely charged before storage, or if it was exposed to extreme temperatures (even for a short amount of time) you may need to find a replacement battery. http://www.batteryinternational.com/electric-scooter-batteries.html should have the battery you need.

SOURCE: battery won't hold a charge

More than likely duff batteries. Will it hold its charge if the batteries are taken off the scooter (i.e. remove the battery pack)? If so, it could be a short somewhere in the wiring of the scooter although I would have to say that this would be unlikely.

Has 2 new batteries, but I am now getting the small green lite flashing constantly. Throttle error? Won't hold a charge either.


Possible controller trip. You may be attempting to install the battery while the key is inserted or the motor controllermay be in overheat protective mode.

Shut down your scooter for a minimum of several minutes to allow the controller to cool. Or, try reinserting the key into the key switch.

Tip

Charging your power chair or scooter the correct way can make them last


Whenever you need to charge your power chair or scooter get into the habit of charging overnight. The battery level indicator lights will tell you if your chair or scooter needs charging. Whenever the lights are down into the yellow and especially if they are in the red. If you have the off-board charger, plug the charger into the charger port in the front of your joystick and then plug the charger into the wall socket or turn the on/off switch on and let it charge overnight. When you get up in the morning the charger should have a red light(power) and a green light illuminated (indicating fully charged) Always turn the charger off or unplug it from the wall socket before you unplug it from the chair or scooter. Never have the power on to the charger when you plug or unplug it from your chair or scooter. Whenever you get new batteries always give your batteries a full charge before use and then if you use the chair daily charge it every night. If you do not use your chair or scooter daily charge it at least once a week. Never leave the charger plugged in and on for more than 24 hours. Your batteries should last you 3-4 years if you charge them correctly.

Phantom battery won't charge


Hello

Are you sure your battery charger is working correctly. Have you tried it on another battery? Possibly, there is a wiring problem, or your battery is the type that needs distilled water - Try another known good and charged battery with your scooter before purchasing a new one to ensure that the wiring is not faulty.

Left key in ignition overnight, had to jump start bike. now the main fuse keeps blowing


You haven't said what model or year of kawasaki.

Some newer bikes aren't supposed to be jump started. Take the battery off the bike, replace the fuse, charge the battery on a proper charger overnight (as opposed to a battery conditioner like optimate). It should now start fine and not blow the fuse.

If that doesn't sort it, the dealer will need to reset something.

How to charge my panterra transport scooter,do i leave switch on or off and for how long?


tony you can charge it either way with switch on or off and if you have used the scooter alot during the day and the battery level lights are in the red charge overnight. The charger light will turn from yellow to green when the batteries are fully charged It really is a good idea to get into the habit of charging overnight wehn you have used the scooter all day. It helps the batteries to recycle them thru a charge cycle when they run down. Now if the scooter is used rarely then make sure it is fully charged when it stored and charge once a week when idle. Hope this helps you

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.

Replace batteries


Hi. To remove the batteries, it is neccessary to remove the seat first. Turn the seat a bit and then lift it straight up. Next remove the cover under the seat, it will probably be held on with velcro. Under the cover you will see the batteries. They will be held in place by fabric straps, which you will have to loosen. Make sure that the machine is turned off, unplub the batteries and remove them.
You will be the best judge of the condition of your batteries.
Can you travel as far as you used to, without the battery gauge falling further than it used to?
It is important to recharge your batteries after each trip, and to charge them overnight at least.If you haven't used the machine for a few weeks, give it a charge overnight.
Some chargers can be left on for weeks at a time, and some chargers should only be used overnight only. The reason for this is that some chargers, such as the Invacare 8 amp charger, will drop down to a float charge after charging the batteries. Most of the smaller 4 amp chargers do not drop down to a float charge, but maintain the full voltage untill they are turned of.
Good luck. Neil.
