This could be something to do with the HI-LOW speed switch or the connections on it or back to the control unit. Check for loose connections first. If you have a meter, check the resistance across the Hi-LOW switch.

SOURCE: I have a pride victory xl8. Problem - was running

All scooters have a protection system built in to prevent burning up the motor, and the user, should the scooter overheat. It sounds like yours overheated. If the temp. outside was warm to hot, and your weight is near the weight limit for the scooter, and you are taxing the motors over a hill, or unstable terrain, then the scooter goes into "limp home mode", or just enough to get you a bit aways, and then it will turn off. After a few minutes to cool off, it will go again, but shut down fairly quickly because it takes a spell to let the whole transaxle-motor assembly to get cool.

Check your weight, and anything else you may be carrying with you on the scooter. Check the terrain, and incline you are going against. Throttle down for all these occassions. If you overloaded the system at some point, then you may have overheated the brushes. Remove them (2) with a standard screwdriver and see if the copper coil is still flexible and springy. If not, replace it/them.

The damage may already be done, so it may need a new motor/transaxle assembly. An expensive proposition I'm afraid.

SOURCE: how do i remove the pride legend classic xl8 seat

hi, be careful here as it can make your back ache,
now there is a lever to the right of the seat, pull it up towards you and
turn your seat 90 anticlockwise, so the seats not facing the control panel, at right angles, you should now be able to lift the seat , take great care here if you have back problems in the past as some seats are quite heavy.

Regards
GeWiz.

SOURCE: even on a full charge

Pride scooters are known for this problem, as I found out when it happened to mine.

You need to replace the Throttle Pot. Either take it to a mobility shop and let them do it or buy the part and do it yourself. It simply involves unscrewing the old one and screwing the new one into place, and there are diagrams to help you on the internet.

This throttle pot problem has happened to my Pride scooter three times already.

SOURCE: My pride ledend classic xl8 continues to freewheel

i know this is an old thread but it may help others

on the motor, the end with the handle to release drive / freewheel this part comes off usually 3 bolts,
the rod sticking out of the motor should have a nut on it held by a split pin, often these snap so the nut will be in the brake housing.
it just a matter of replacing the pin ( less than 1 pound)and reassembling. can be a little fidlly but just a heads up if your capable with a spanner. and so you dont get ripped off by a repairer saying you need to replace the whole brake unit (70 pound)

I have an xl8 mobility scooter that keeps cutting out and stopping dead, i then switch it off and on and it starts, could it be the motor?


My Pride Colt XL8 keeped cutting out (7 flashes of LED, Speed pot error) , checked all the cable connections up tiller arm as recommended by Pride technical support, worked for about a week, then problem returned. Eventually took to Pride dealer, with problem occasional occurring,they found it to be the lower tiller cable support bracket straining the cables connector intermittently and so removed the bracket, the problem then was solved !
