Hosw do i bypass the overload sensor on my go go elite scooter it keeps shutting off?


You don't want to ever bypass anything on these scooters, doing so will either get someone hurt or silverly damage the scooter. There is a good reason your scooter is shutting down. The controller monitors the amperage flow, if at any time the amperage is to high for to long a period of time the controller will shut down the motor, so as you can see there is no sensor to bypass. Also the controller will send a code 4 failure out to a LED out on tiller head. There should be a lamp blinking on the tiller head when the motor is off line. The service lamp is cyclic, in this case the lamp to flash 4 times pause flash 4 times pause.

iT sounds to me like you have one or more shorted windings on the armature of your drive motor which is apart of the trans-axle assembly. TO BE SURE remove the entire trans-axle module. I have a Rascal 600t all i have to do to remove my trans-axle is to remove to quick pins and my entire trans-axle assembly comes away from the scooter. Take the entire assembly down to your local motor repair shop that can rewind motors. Thay will check out the motor, take it apart and clean all the carbon dust from the brushes that gets all over the interior of the motor, doesn't do the motor bearing any good. Rewinding a motor isn't inexpensive costing $200 and up depending on the size and complexity of the motor. But the scooter trans-axle cost is astoundingly high at $1,500 and up. They say they are sealed unit and that they can not be repaired. In reality trans-axles are quite simple to repair and easily repaired. The only difficult thing are the scooter companies that will not come across with the parts and info we need in order for us to keep our scooters in good repair. So ii'd take the trans-axle down to the motor shop. They don't charge anything to check it out. When they do maintenance you will know its working right. When troubleshooting problem with scooter you eliminate half the machine when you eliminate the trans-axle. Get back to me once you've checked it out

If you want to do a check of the trans-axle your self. You can do this by blocking the drive wheels off the ground. Turn the speed pot to
slow. Just give the motor enough power to just move the tires very slowly. Does it take allot of throttle to move the motor. Could be stiff bearings. Does the motor stall out. Hook an amp meter in series to the motor, run the motor real slow. Does the meter needle bounce around allot. If it does that means the winding are not so good. Now floor scooter. Does the trans-axle get hot. There usually a brake assembly at the end of the motor. When you start or stop the motor put your fingers on it you should feel it engage and disengage. Is that brake dragging, does it get hot. This brake assembly gives me lots of grief, drying out it gets stuck. WARNING never use WD40 it eats certain plastics and gets gummy. I use pure silicon oil spray. Hope this helps.

When traveling on flat surfaces, there is a noise coming from the front (axel, tire, steering column???) area. No noise going up an incline or down a hill, just on the level. Had this scooter only 12...


The most likely source of the noise is your front wheel bearings or the front springs for the suspension. Each front wheel has an inner and outer wheel bearing which is sealed but can develop noise over time. If you can, block up the scooter and spin the wheel in the air. If you hear noise it is either a noisy bearing or you need to remove the wheel and grease the spindle (axle) the wheel is mounted to. The wheel bearings need to be punched out and replaced with the same size bearings from the manufacturer or a bearing store.
While the scooter is off the ground check the steering linkages and spray lubricate them. Also, lubricate the springs and anything else that moves or pivots. If the steering tiller squeaks at the head tube frame (steering column) upper or lower bearings you have a more technical repair. That involves loosening the lock-nuts for the steering column dropping the lower front frame assembly to either repack with grease or replace the bearings. You would also have tor remove the upper tiller assembly and get it aligned on reassembly.
You should be able to hear and isolate the noise once you have the front end blocked up off the ground. Hope this helps.

I have a sterling 4 mobility scooter... steering is stiff and jerky...just put new tyres on... help please.....


I would think this will be head bearings. These bearings usually loosen rather than tighten up but if they do tighten up the steering will indeed become stiff and probably jerky if the cups that the ball bearings roll in have become a bit notchy. Its an easy fix and should just need loosening off. The bearings are located where the steering tube on the tiller passes through the frame. Its the large nut on the top that needs loosening slightly. There is usually a locking ring that may need lossening aswell. Please be warned that access can sometimes be an issue when trying to get at the headset. If loosening the headset does not cure this problem, there are normally a couple of sealed bearings located within the axle housing (the part where the wheel attaches onto). Its unlikely though that these will be causing your problem. If they are, they will need replacing which requires part of the steering assembly to be dismanted and for safety reasons, may be better left to a dealer. You menion about having new tyres. Was the steering ok before you had these fitted or were they fitted to try and cure this problem? If its the former, it could simply be incorrect tyre type or pressure. Before attempting to correct this problem, its probably a good idea just to lift the front of the scooter off the ground and turn the steering to be sure that the bearings are at fault and not the tyres. I hope I have been some help to you.

How do you remove the back wheel of a Pride Hurricane scooter


Undo the centre wheel nut and remove along with the washer, jack the rear of the scooter off the ground then slide the wheel off the axle. If it will not remove, it will need knocking off from the inside rim. Be careful not to lose the hub key (a small piece of metal that locates in a slot in the wheel and axle) as the scooter will not drive if this is missing. To remove the trye from the rim, undo the 4 bolts that hold the two wheel halves together. When refitting the wheel, be sure to apply some grease to the axle before sliding on the wheel.
