Question about Pride Health & Beauty
The scooter is about 4-5 years old (bought used). It has the dual speed option (rabbit-turtle). Lately it is exhibiting a weird symptom when sitting for a while and the key is first turned on..continuous flash..nothing to decode a flash count.Scooter will not reverse. Turn key on off a couple of times and press FWD lever, I hear a relay click and the scooter will move forward and then backwards. Battery chargef indicator is pegged to the right, New batteries installed last year and maintained over the winter. Any ideas?

hi, first you need to check the connections to the batteries then to the motor controller, and don't dismiss the speed pot, disconnect the speed pot and try a normal 5K pot inplace of it, if the scooters responds you find the problem just a case of getting the right speed pot. Check the freewheel switch, normally it located on the motor side.

Testimonial: "Any insight to a problem is a positive step."
Hi. How many beeps between pauses? This is a fault code.
A couple of problems might cause this fault. Is your free-wheel lever in the correct place. These levers operate a switch, that tells the controller that the brake is disabled, this stops the controller from driving the scooter with out brakes.
Might also be caused by a stuck brush in the motor. This is usually caused by the caps that hold the brushes in, not being tight enough. Check the brushes, make sure they slide in and out smoothly, retighten the caps. Be carefull because these caps can crack easily.
Good luck. Neil.

the click is the electric brakes releasing , most likly the problem you are having is the brushes in the motor may be shot cheap easy fix on each side of the motor there should be what looks like a flat head screw those are the brush covers remove them and check them replace as need , otherwise the motor may be shot

This sounds to me like you need a cleaning of all electrical connections that you can get to. I would remove cable from negitive side of the battery first and leave it disconnected until you are finished. Clean both battery cables using a wire brush sand paper or whatever you can to clean. I would also have the battery tested. Some auto parts stores such as auto zone will do this for you for free.
You probably will need to have most of this work done by a service tech, as it sounds like the throttle control is going to need work and the only units like yours that I have worked on were not user friendly.Sorry I'm not more help. Thank you
