This is likely to be a faulty switch. If u have a multimeter it is very easy to test. You simply check continuity on the terminals with the switch in the open and closed position. When open you should have no beep when closed you should get a beep or infinite on your multimeter. If you get no sound in either position or beeping in both positions your switch is dead and needs replacing. Please contact me if you need any parts as I can order directly from Drive Medical for you. Thanks Dave,

Aviator S8 mobility scooter will only drive in reverse and not forward? Can anyone help please?

The selector switch is worn out. All it does is reverse positive & negative so the motor can run in reverse. The contacts inside the switch wear out, oxidize or corrode & wear out. Replace the switch and your problem will dissapear.

Scooter won't move when forward/reverse engaged.


Engage the freewheel lever
- allows you to operate the mobility equipment with the standard controls.
Disengage the freewheel lever - This unlocks the unit and allows the wheels to spin freely. You can easy push the equipment without power. This is especially helpful if you run out of battery power and need assistance.

Reversing thumb controls

Your authorized Golden Technologies, Inc. dealer can reverse the thumb lever controls so that when you push on the “left” lever, your scooter will move in the forward direction, and pushing on the “right” lever will move your scooter in reverse.

If you don't want to go to a dealer, any mechanic who is willing can make this adjustment for y ou. hope this helps.
