No, you almost for sure have screw down terminals on your battery, not a fitted battery. The charger will read full when the charger has filled it as high as it can or has fully cycled. With a full charge take your batteries to an auto store or mechanic and have them tested.

SOURCE: Scooter has full charge but still won't go.

It probably means that the connections or wiring from your battery are loose or broken. When you add the extra current required to run the motors, the voltage is being lost. Monitor the battery voltage with a meter while trying to drive the scooter will prove this.

Larry,

Many scooters use a special charger that will not overcharge the batteries. Your best bet is to run a long extension cord to wherever you are safely storing you scooter and use the on-board charger. Be sure to charge your batteries often, since they last a lot longer if you do not run them down too far.

SOURCE: battery charger wont switch over to charge on a sonic scooter

The Sonic has an off board charger. IF the scooter is not charging, you may need to replace it. If you a technically inclined, you can measure the voltage out of the charger, it should be more than 28 V. You may need to contact Pride for more help.

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…

What does it mean when 1green light stays on when i charge my freedom 959-j3 scooter


The charger may not be operating. If the batteries fall below 20 volts, the charger will not bring them up. You need to take the batteries out and use an automotive charger to charge them individually. It may take several days on the charger for each battery to get them back up to the point where the scooter charger will continue charging.

I charge the battery and mark it's full charge,but on the scooter the indicator don't mark is full charge and when you drive,the speed just suddenly will drop and come back ok.


Charging batteries to full means leave on charge for 12 -16 hours as it may show charged but the charger goes into what is called a battery conditioning mode where a small trickle charge takes place to fully charge batteries. Again, how old are batteries and have you had them load tested at all?

Needs a full overnight charge of at least 12 hours and left on charge even when the lights tell you it's is charged up.then get into the habit of running it right down to improve the storage stamina of battery.good idea to take charger out with you so if you get a chance to top it up somewhere whilst away from home.remember in cold weather these things can't travel as far.

Scooter won't move


Things to check: Drive/Free wheeling switch, brake release lever (this activates an internal micro-switch that enable power to the drive system, battery box connectors (condition of contacts - corroded, missing, loose. etc.); main control cable (corrosion. lose or missing pins, etc). If all these are OK, could be controller or drive control potentiometers (speed, forward, backward) on the handle-bar (tiller).
Good luck!

Has the scooter been stored unused for a while? If so, the batteries may have gone solid from improper maintenance. There is a gel inside the batteries that needs to have current run through it at least once a week to keep them fluid. The charger is showing a green light because it senses the batteries are full, but instead of being full of power, they are full of crud and need to be replaced again. If the batteries have been properly charged but you still cannot get power, check all your connections to make sure they are tight and that your fuses are not blown.
Good luck!

Battery won't hold a charge - go-go elite travellor scooter battery charged overnight but won't hold charge.


We have had problems with scooter batteries from time to time and the repair man said to take apart the battery case and disconnect the batteries and use a car charger. I put the two battery in parallel and used a amp battery charger. This worked fine.
Don't run your scooter batteries all the way down when using the Go Go as the scooter charger won't always bring them up to full charge and you may have repeat this. Also running the batteries all the way down shortens there life.

We purchased a Rascal 300 two months ago that worked just fine. We seen proof that new batteries had just been purchased. It has a built in charger and we have kept the batteries charged. The charger now...


Here's a link for the owners manual for the 300 model. Click on it and it will open as a PDF document that you can print. http://www.rascalscooters.com/manuals/300_manual.pdf

The ammeter back in the trunk should be registering when you plug the scooter in. If it isn't, this doesn't mean that it isn't charging as the meter itself may be bad. Put it on charge for a few hours and see if the "fuel guage" on the top of the tiller comes up to full. If it does, than your charger is okay and you just need to ignore the ammeter not working until it doesn't charge at all anymore, then the charger is bad. Note too, that later on when the batteries get weak and you can only go a little ways, that it still means your charger is okay, batteries not. Even bad batteries well show a full charge, but they won't take you far at all. If the batteries don't show a full charge after a few hours, then you need to replace the onboard charger.

Good luck
