The speed control is defective. Its going to full speed without the slow start. Get it checked by a local specialist.
Before you do that make sure the speed setting control is set properly.

My golden companion 2 Gc 321 goes forward when i push reverse and goes reverse when i push forward


It sounds to me like someone has gotten inside & tampered with it, Cameron. Maybe they twisted the drive belt 180 degrees or something? Or rewired the motor backwards?

Scooter won't move when forward/reverse engaged.


From:

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.

How do i turn off the terrible beeping that goes off when my scooter goes backwards.


It has a purpose and that is, warning anyone behind you. Better to put up with that, than be confronted with an insurance claim.

No drive in forward or reverse


Check your brake Mechanisim if you can push it manually the you need to reset your brake. It will not move unless your brake is locked.

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...
