I would say the throttle pot is slightly out of neutral allowing the scooter to travel slightly when turned on. Try moving the throttle lever slightly in the opposite direction to which the scooter is travelling (i.e. if the scooter moves forward when turned on, press the lever to go backwards, but only a small amount). If the scooter stops and you hear a clicking noise from the back of the scooter (this would be the brake clicking on) then that would be your problem. Would just need a small adjustment but best left to a dealer as it has to be sopt on! Sometimes scooters will not work if the throttle is slightly out but if its only a very small amount out of neutral, it might sometimes work in the manner you have suggested. We have come accross this fault on a few occasions. Hope this helps...

Hi. Sounds like the circuit breaker ( over load switch ) is tripping out. If you let it sit for a few minutes, does it start to work again? Does it stop when you are driving onthe flat ground, or when you drive up a slope.
I have had cases where this happens to scooters going up a slope, usually because the circuit breaker is rated to low. Sometimes a faulty or burn't out motor will cause this fault.
Also check that the brake solenoid ( free-wheel )is releasing properly. Can you push the scooter when the brake is released?
Good luck. Neil.

Testimonial: "thanks for the help"
SOURCE: Pride Legend 3-wheel scooter. I
This problem can be caused by a faulty signal from the throttle lever to the processor due to an intermittent failure of the throttle lever or the temperature switch for the motor is showing an "over heat " condition & the processor shuts down the system , until the switch is cycled. This will need to be checked & tested by a technician to verify the problem for repair.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: Scooter just stops
Battery connection problems cause the controller to overheat. Once you have allowed the electronics to cool down, all seems well again. Get on your knees and check that the battery terminals are secured very well. Happy scooting. Regards Chris… firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi. 8 flashes is a fault code for a motor fault. It will be either worn brushes in the motor or faulty connectors to the motor. This fault code means that there is no circuit through the motor. Probably time to overhaul the motor. Most mobility scooters have plugs and sockets that are really to small to carry the amount of current that they do. Because of this, they sometimes fail.Good luck. Neil.
