SOURCE: Rascal mobility scooter will now only go backwards

On some scooters it is possible to change the polarity of the motor. If its a two brush motor (most are) you can just swap the red and black wires around in the connector plug for the motor. Make sure you get the right wires if you do this but I have to point out that there is obviously a problem with the scooter and I would strongly advise you to get it looked at by your local dealer as the problem is potentially serious and may cause other problems aswell. I cant really understand why it would only go backwards. May be a throttle pot problem or main controller fault. Either way, as I said, best get it looked at as even if you do swap the wires, it is most likely that the scooter will only travel forward at the usual speed for reverse, normally 2mph! Hope this helps...

Hi Pinky,

What you are describing is typical for this model scooter. The electromagnetic brake goes bad causing the motor to overheat and the circuit breaker to pop. In some cases, it will also burnt out the controller. Depending on the serial number, type of electronics,and the type of brake, you can generally determine the problem components as follows:

Block up the scooter on blocks after removing the seat and back cover. Inspect the brake visually for discoloration and burning. It can be found on the end of the motor with the brake release lever on it. Run the scooter while it is blocked up and listen for a dragging brake on the end of the motor. Disconnect the brake at the connector and with a digital voltmeter check that the brake resistance is between 40 and 60 ohms. If anything is out of specification base on the above replace the brake (the part is between 60 and $160 depending on the serial number). If you have a brake problem you should consider replacing the motor/brake as an assembly.
You can listen for the motor operation and determine if it is grinding or hanging up. Unplug the motor harness and using your voltmeter on the large red and black wires, measure the motor resistance. It should be between 0 and 1.5 ohms. A larger resistance means the motor is working too hard. It may be worn out with bad brushes and armature, and will pop your circuit breaker (reset button).
I usually replace the motor/brake/transaxle as a complete assembly to avoid any future problems and labor cost. This assembly can cost over $1500, so it is a considerable investment. You should have your insurance cover the cost of the evaluation and repair.
There is a good chance that if you continue to operate the scooter with the problems you are describing, that you will eventually burn up the controller which supplies power out to the motor and brake (cost is $600 and up).
You need to make a cost /benefit analysis based on the age of the scooter. What this means is that you need to decide if it is worth repairing. This scooter rarely lasts more than 4 years with an active user. Most insurance companies will replace it after 5 years. The Rally is not a very durable, long life scooter.
You have already invested in some new batteries which is a good decision. If you decide to go with a new scooter the U-1 batteries may be transferable to that scooter.
Hope this helps

How do i reset the service spanner symbol on my aprilia 125 leonardo sport city scooter

Ok, disconnecting the battery does NOT reset the service light. To reset the service light (spanner symbol) on dashboard you must hold the mode button for about 5 seconds with ignition OFF then while still holding the mode button turn ignition on, continue holding the mode button for a futher 10 - 12 secs and then it should just disapear. This solution was brought to by RPMs. Mobile motorcycle service.

2003 saturn vue service light on with wrench how do I reset

Open the hood. You will notice there is a large black box on the right-hand side directly behind the battery. This black box is the fuse box. Pull the top of the fuse box off. There are two clips on either side; once you pop one side, the other comes off very easily. In the top left-hand side of the fuse box where all the fuses sit, you will see a large orange/red block. Below this block is a button that says "reset." Press this button for 5 seconds. Turn the car on and wait for a minute. If the light does not go on, turn off the car and set the key to ACC on the key ring. Push the reset button again, holding it for a total of 15 seconds. Turn the key to off, take out the key, return the key and start the car again. Allow the car to run for 2 full minutes. It is taking the system a few minutes to register that this button has been pressed.

Rover three wheel mobility scooter full charge horn working but just wont move

First of all,

Make sure the freewheel lever is unengaged (up or down ?) , this can be tested by pushing the scooter forward , you should hear gearbox clunk,(Freewheel not engaged) Not all scooters sound a alarm when freewheel is engaged.

is the power indicator working okay,

Does the Wig Wam move freely, the thumb throttle part,

Check under the seat to make sure you have not blown or tripped the fuse, if it's a switch simply pressing the button will sort it, if not check the two prong fuse ,

you may also have some reset buttons on the stem so look out for them.

Now let me what you tried

Check your batteries, they might be ready to die. Stalling is a sign your are not getting enough power to the scooter and when you do, it runs until they run low again. Kinda like a cell phone batt, ones it dies and you wait awhile you can get it started but only for a couple of minutes before dying again.
