Does the scooter have any power to it at all? Have you recently charged the batteries? If the scooter has been sitting unused for a while the batteries may not take a full charge and need to be replaced. If the batteries are good, check the fuses and all of the battery connections to ensure nothing has come lose. Sounds like a power issue.
Good luck!

Hello
There is an overload protection switch in it. It will look like the the protection switch that can be seen under the mixes. The picture of the overload protector is added here. Its press button will only seen outside. Just putsh it once and check. The motor has carbon brushes inside it to get armeture contact. If these burshes are worn out, the motor won't turn, and the scooter won't move. There will be two of them in opposite directions. They are replacable parts. The picture of it is also given here. Check these first. If you need anymore assistance from me, feel free to get me by FixYa.

may sound silly, but have you checked that it's not in freewheel mode, as this would prevent the motor engaging

I have to push joystick back to go forward. An forward to go back. Much faster in reverse too


if you look under the seat and see that there are little black switches, one of them maybe broken. if there are no switches on the seat post. then your joystick thinks you are a front wheel drive instead of a rear wheel drive chair. Someone with a programmer can reverse this. get ahold of these people at this link I give you to find a technician close to you.1-800-257-7955 or Mobility Parts and Service Official Rascal Parts Supplier

Rascal Candy Apple. Why did it stop moving while I was driving it?


On the rascal, if your driving along and it suddenly stops, the throttle lever could be bad or the speed control could be bad or both. A battery lead maybe loose. The tiller cable may have slid back causing line interruption.
The flashing 4 indicates current timeout, the scooter may have been going up a steep hill, over heating the motor, turn off and allow motor to cool. then try again. if this happens on flat ground then check the parking brake, it maybe hanging up causing the motor to over work.

Check the multi pin connector on tiller and where it connects under the seat between the batteries. Most common problem.

My rascal 388xl keeps breaking down,there is a beep noise from the back ,any idea why this is happening ,thanks


This sounds like the wig-wag needs replacing. that is the lever assembly that you push to go forwards and backwards.

I have a Rascal 200..was working fine..now after you go forward and let go of the throttle. ..it goes in reverse itself. .is there a throttle adjustment?


I had a similar problem on my Pride Legend scooter, it would
creep back in reverse if you let go of the throttle. The FWD/REV spring tensioned throttle pot inside was "off center"causing it to activate in reverse when it should have stayed put with the electric brake energized.
I had to replace the throttle pot assembly. Not sure if yours
is similar, but I would suspect it might be.

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

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...
