You need to get a test light or voltmeter. Open the hood go the horn and it will have a plastic plug with wires that plugs into the horn and unplug it. You then need to have someone to press the horn and while they hold horn down you take the test light and insert the tip into the plastic plug from horn. ( depending on how many wires go into plug) you touch the end of test light to the end of each wire inside plug.. One wire should make your test light light up everytime the horn is pressed. If it does light up your test light your horn is most likely bad and needs replacement. you do pretty much the same with a voltmeter.. but a voltmeter has two wires and a display screen. A black and red wire.. you have to hold the black wire to a piece of metal on the car and touch the red lead to the inside of the plastic connection when the horn is pressed one wire should show on the display 12 to 12.5 volts.. if you don't have 12 volts on one of the wires when your press the horn the horn is most likely bad and requires replacement. If you do not have voltage at the horn plug. You most likely have a blown fuse or a short in the wiring. or the actual horn assy..what you press to blow horn could require replacement. You can buy a test light or voltmeter at any auto parts store almost always have one under 10 dollars.. you can find both at Walmart as well. You can get a voltmeter for around 10 dollars, but a test light is easier to use and you can use it to check your fuses as well.
Bad boy (or girl of course)! Should have noted everything BEFORE taking it apart. But then you now know that and probably did before .... Oh well, we've all done it... Once. I have a Pride scooter, but not this one. MAYBE someone with a sc50 Sonic will be kind and post a photograph of the underside of their control panel while still wired?? This would help our friend a lot.
Sadly Pride Mobility aren't known for useful things like wiring diagrams or meaningful owner's manuals.
The horn is a a small peizeo horn. You can generally get them at radio shack. The horn voltage is 24v. Before you run and get a horn, you need to see if the horn accidentally was disconnected due to a bad solder joint or the wire had been accidentally pinched and cut from a previous service. This horn generally does not go bad. The button on the dash is usually the culprit. While you have it apart you need to look at the button closely. The best way to check this this to have the scooter on and touch both wires in the bottom of the switch with a screwdriver and see if the horn sounds. If it does, replace the switch. If it doesn't, then it is either the horn or a bad circuit. Depending on how comfortable you are messing with electricity. You can apply direct voltage from the batteries with a jumper wire and see if the horn works or you can use a voltmeter to check the circuit. I usually just use the jumper wires. It's fast and easy. If horn works then it's in the circuit, if it doesn't you have to start with replacing the horn.
The click sound is likely the electric brake releasing. If the brake is working and the scooter wont roll, then you engage it and you can push the scooter then you have a motor or motor wiring problem. The Pride Rally is an older model whose electronics do not verify the motor is working prior to allowing the scooter to start. Please disconnect the motor wiring and check the motor's electrical resistance. It should read less than 3 ohms on a meter. If it doesn't, pull, clean and or replace the motor brushes if its a serviceable unit. If not - you may need a new motor - especially if the reading of the motor winding is over 3 ohms.
pull the fuse board out and check the feeds ,i think their is a wire or a connection where it joins the fuse board has just packed up with heat and age ,have had this before and bit of bodgy wiring done the trick but it was a while agao and i cannot remember a lot about it but i remember doing it ,i mean i have watched a lot of star trek since i done this job and i do not remember it being that difficult once i worked out what had burnt out
To fix your horn is easy, there are some excellent pills out there. The bikes horn though is different, you will need a small test light or multy meter, Check if there is power to the wire plugged onto the horn, ignition on The horn needs direct power to one terminal, and the other terminal shorts to earth through the button. If there is power and the other wire connects to earth, when the button is pressed you probably need a new horn( not that expensive) If there is no power check the fuse If the second wire doesnt connect to earth when the button pressed there may be a problem in the handle switch. There can also be a problem in the wiring if it has been damaged in the steering stop etc Sometimes the horn can just be stuck and a small tap on the horn with the button pressed can start it. If the horn button it a bit corroded in the contacts, hold it in and wiggle it a bit, can clear the corrosion.
Sometime easier to just check the fuse then buy a new horn, before chasing down the wires and switches
The caravan horn is a weak one. Locate the horn and disconnect the plug. One wire is hor all the time and it runs off the horn fuse in the undrhood fuse relay panel next to the battery. With a test light verify that the one wire is hot all the time. ( A test light is a tool looks like an ice pick with a clear handle that has a light bulb inside the handle has a wire coming out of it with a clip on the end, connect the clip to a metal ground and anything that electricly powered will light the light bulb in the handle) If it's hot then put the pointer in the other wire ( In the horns plug) and connect the clip of the light to the battery positive, Push the horn button and the light should light, if it does the horn is bad. If not the horn button or the clockspring is bad. The clockspring is the connection beteen the steering whell and the steering collum, It's a coil of ribbon cable that has the wires for the airbag the horn and any buttons for cruise control or radio volume or channels that may be the steering wheel. this cable can break or be overloaded and burn out. Most of the time when they fail the airbag light will be on the the cruise control won't work. The horn button is made into the airbag and seldom fails the fuse is second the horns fail often.
