Question about Health & Beauty
I know some of the Electric Chairs have a way to disengage the motor from the wheels, make sure this has no happened to you.

Remove the seat and the plastic cover over the batteries. look at the lights in the cover or at the back of the scooter an see if they are plugged in. It is a common fault of when working on the scooter to forget to plug the lights back in on assembly. Hope thats what it is.

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

SOURCE: I have an electric mobility
Barb the flashes indicate a brake problem. Make sure that you aren't in freewheel. Move the freewheel lever located at the rear of your scooter up and down a few times then put it in drive mode and turn the scooter on and see if you still get 5 flashes If so you will have to replace the brake assembly Hope this helps

SOURCE: my scooter won't move! i turn the key, plenty of battery power, all lights, horn etc working but will not move forwards or backwards, when i pull the controls all i get is a beep. any thoughts?
Either your parking brake is engaged or if your scooter is more like
mine i have a Rascal 600t it gives a code 5 service code when it thinks
its in free wheel. Your scooter is dropping into a fail safe mode and is telling you this by beeping. Most scooters have a service light on the tiller head that will flash out the failure code of the failure detected. Does your beep a number of times pause then beep this same pattern. The freewheel mechanism is located on the trans-axle
which if you go outside across grass it gets wet. This device doesn't
like moister and will get stiff will partially engage or disengage. In
that mechanism there is a micro-switch which if the lever when slipped
into the engaged position doesn't go all the way to the seated position
the switch will see the mechanism as being disengaged [in free wheel]
and will inhibit the motor from running. I lubricate the entire
assembly with pure silicon spray oil,WARNING, do not use WD-40, It will
eat some plastics.After lubricating the lever should move smoothly. I
have to lub my scooter about once a month in the winter.
Now if this doesn't work check the connector that are all the wires are connected. Disconnect the connector check the pins are ok reconnect check to see if your still getting the failure. If you are still getting this problem do continuity checks on the wiring. You will need a multimeter only $9

Select ohms the highest scale, short the leads together, zero the meter by turning the zero adjust knob. There is only one wire we are interested in. On some scooters you can visually see the switch and the wire running from it. The wire usually foes to a spade connector. Disconnect the spade connector put a probe on that connector leading to the switch. Disconnect the battery put other probe on the positive side of the terminals that were connected to the battery not to the battery it side.Work the switch does the meter needle deflect to zero, no, try the negative side. Does the meter deflect, no, put the probes directly on the switch terminals, does the switch.when worked now cause the meter to deflect, no, replace switch, yes, the problem is in the harness, don't panic, use can use that meter to trace the wire through the harness. Wiggling wires and flexing connectors usually makes the meter flick at some point. Thats how i do it i'm never without my trusty meter. Rascal are notorious for having problems of this type my mid-frame harness fell apart in the middle of a six lane intersection, the scooter simply locks up tight .I can do nothing but sit in the middle of this huge intersection. People try to move me but the scooters wheels are locked, my illness makes it so i can't communicate with people do it was a mess. So i modified the connector so its no longer a latch type connector. I drilled it for a quick pin which is much stronger than what its using now. Hope this helps
