Hi. Has the machine been in regular use before the fault occured? You say that the brake is in brake release mode, this mode is only ever used if you need to push the scooter by hand. It releases the brake on the motor, and also operates a switch to disable the controller from driving the motor. It does this because it would be to dangerous to drive the scooter with the brake disabled.
Move the lever back to its correct position. If it still does not work, then the disable switch might be faulty, or it might be a different fault such as a stuck brush in the motor.
Is this machine produced by shoprider ( Phisang ) of Taiwan.
Please let me know how you get on. Neil.

The Pride Go Go Elite Traveller Plus HD 4 Wheel scooter problem you are describing with 10 fast beeps is that the scooter has "exceeded the push or roll away speed limit" (the scooter service manual is written by an engineer). The second symptom you describe is that you could get the scooter to drive by turning it off and on. By resetting the controller you were able to get the scooter to work for awhile.
This scooter has either an S drive controller or R series controller which has gone bad. By running the serial number you can call the manufacturer and identify which type. The part runs about $500 retail. It may be covered under warranty so it is advisable to call the manufacturer and run the SN first. Pride Mobility Products is at 1 800 800 8586. They can direct you to a local dealer for warranty repair.
While under the rear electronics shroud cover inspecting the controller check for burnt or melted wiring harnesses and connectors and replace those also. The rear cover has velcro attached inserts and well hidden screws that need to be removed first. An experienced tech can do the work in under an hour or you can save some money by doing the repair yourself. If I remember correctly all you need is 2 different size screwdrivers and an open end wrench for the nuts (all metric hardware).
Hope this helps.

Your break release shifter is in the push the scooter mode. Put it back in gear and the horn doesn' beep and it should run..
The horn beeping is the alarm to tell you the break release is on.
It is usually located under the seat on the body of the top of the battery housing. Looks like a stick with a ball on it.
