Pride celebrity x sport

I have a pride celebrity x sport 2008 model, new batteries fitted, battery level display right over maximum, but no green light, lights, indicators and horn work, but motor does not, is it likely to be the brain? (if I put the power direct to the motor it runs fine) please any ideas?

Hi , the controller could be at fault but firstly you make sure the connections are good by refitting them making sure they are a good fit , look for discolouration, disconnect the motor and brake and check resistances (smart meter etc), the motor should read around 0.4 ohms, the brake from 30 to 60 ohms...

I do repair controllers and you ;re welcome to send it to me for free testing , you pay for the return postage only...

Regards
Rob

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.

SOURCE: pride celebrity deluxe comfortcoach 1v problem-

Usually when a scooter dies, there is an event that preceded the dead state that caused the fault. What were you doing before it went dead?

The biggest culprit for scooters and power chairs is moisture. With a scooter, there are two components most susceptible. One is located inside the top of the tiller and it is an electonics board about 6"x4" in size. If you had the scooter out in the rain without protection over the tiller, water can encroach into this area and short the board. Or, a coke or coffee spill can short it. There's a fuse on the board and if it is blown, then likely the board is shot as the fuse merely keeps the tiller from going into a total meltdown in the event of a short. Boards run about $25.00 to $45.00 to replace. Inspect it and look for any signs of overheating or corrosive buil-up and see if the fuse has blown.

The second component is located under the shroud beneath the seat. It is a small metal box which is the power control module and it controls all of the operations of the scooter. It has several wires going into and coming out of it (on-board chargers for some scooters will only have one wire going in and one coming out, sometimes two). These boxes are water resistant, but are susceptible to damage if the scooter has been run through a puddle and a lot of water has splashed up onto it. These are several hundred dollars to replace, but first check all of the fuses coming off the batteries that will lead from the battery to this control box and insure that it isn't a blown fuse. These fuses generally don't blow unless the scooter was operated beyond its capabilities, like driving it in sand, mud or other unstable terrain that puts an enormous strain on the motor and pulling a lot of juice from the batteries. Finally, check all of the connections that clip together. Don't rely on a visual inspection, take them apart, and reconnect them all to insure a good, tight fit.

Hope this helps.

Green light flashing 9 times


sounds like you are sitting on some of the wiring or connectors, take it apart like you did to fit batteries and check there are no wires shorting out or connector is being squashed, check as you put it back together, you should sort it that way. the error code should be:

9 BARS: The parking brakes have a bad connection or have a failed solenoid, or any lever or switches that disconnect drive for pushing the chair manually may be pulled or switched.

so check these wires and connectors closely first.
but please note that with out the make and model the error code is the most lightly posability.

I turn key on celebrity scooter. everything looks normal. all lights on, but does not run.


Are the lights flashing or steady? If they are steady and indicate that the battery is charged, make sure that the freewheel/manual brake release lever is in the drive position. If the lights are blinking, then you can visit this site to locate the type of controller on your scooter to try and determine what the problem may be: http://www.pgdt.com/scenter/diagnostics/diagvsi.html
If you continue to have problems, please contact Pride Mobility Technical Support for assistance.
Good luck!

The horn will beep, but the power meter shows no power on my pride go-go elite.


It sounds like the batteries have gone bad and need to be replaced. Very little power is needed to operate the horn, but much more is needed to make the motors work.

The batteries contain a gel that needs to have current run through it on a regular basis (at least 8 hours once a week) or it will oxidize and solidify. If you attach the charger, what will most likely happen is the green light will either stay green or go to green after a very short time. When you turn on the power chair, nothing happens. The charger will indicate the batteries are full, but instead of being full of power, they are full of crud. Your warranty will most likely not cover replacement as this is due to customer neglect, but your insurance may still cover the replacement batteries if you can wait for the process to go through. Otherwise, you will need to replace the batteries on your own, type U1, 24v 33 amp, approx. $125 each at Batteries Plus or Interstate Battery. Good luck!

I have brand new just fitted MK Gel batteries and a known working charger. When the charger is plugged in and charging a orange light should come on or green when fully charged. At the moment only the red...


David, If you are not getting the yellow light on the charger then you have a problem with the charger. What voltage are you getting at the batteries when charging? You can check the charger by removing the end plate where the lights are to see if there is a fuse on the output side of the charger. if there is check to see if the fuse is blown. There probably is a fuse on the other end but since the red light comes on it is good. If you plug the charger into the charger port and put your ear to it you should hear a hum coming from the charger. Hope this helps you
