SOURCE: Forward/Reverse switch not working Revo Pride

Could it be in free-wheel mode. Most Prides have a pull up knob at the rear of the scooter.

It is pretty common for the meters on the charger to either not work at all, or give an inaccurate reading. They get bounced and dropped, and they aren't that well built to begin with. Basically, just ignore the charger as long as you are getting a full charge out of it, and getting good distance with each charge.

SOURCE: AXS Mobility scooter loses battery power quickly.

hi , two problems can cause this,

1. batteries are weak, is the charger ok ? just because it 's green does not mean the charger is ok, can you validate the charge, try some other batteries ?,

2. Brake be activated or on at all times,
The best way to prove this is to remove the brake mech from the side of the motor completey now try the scooter, if the problem goes away then check the resistance of the brake, is it open or shorted ?
If you feel the brake, batteries and charger are working ok then the controller must be activating the brake and this is the fault but please double check the voltage on the brake leads.

SOURCE: just bought my dad a second hand go go 3 wheel elite scooter

Hi Linda. Sometimes if there is a blown fuse or faulty connector on the battery leads, the charger thinks the batteries are charged as the voltage coming out of the charger rises to the high level. Some chargers will cut out if this happens. It is probably not the charger.
Make sure the batteries are plugged in correctly, sometimes during transport they will get knocked and become disconnected.
Also make sure that the battery terminals are not loose where the wires connect to the batteries.
Good luck. Neil.

I have to push joystick back to go forward. An forward to go back. Much faster in reverse too

if you look under the seat and see that there are little black switches, one of them maybe broken. if there are no switches on the seat post. then your joystick thinks you are a front wheel drive instead of a rear wheel drive chair. Someone with a programmer can reverse this. get ahold of these people at this link I give you to find a technician close to you.1-800-257-7955 or Mobility Parts and Service Official Rascal Parts Supplier

Sundance will not take a charge. Breaker is good, front 5 amp fuse is good. All connections are good. Batteries are new. Can also drive away while charge plug is in wall socket. I understand there is a...

On the older sidekick(sundancer) there is an ATO fuse in a rubber boot under the pyramid shaped cover to the rear electronics console that runs to the meter on the pyramid. The newer sundancers have no rear fuse at the electronics tray for the charger. You more likely have a bad charger which is causing an inhibit condition. Usually the scooter will drive away with the charger plugged in until the capacitor drains (1 minute). By unplugging the charger you can get the scooter to run. Check the fuse and the meter connections, then replace the charger with the newer Maximizer style charger with the harness adapter kit.

Rascal scooter no forward or reverse or seat rise

Does the scooter have any power to it at all? Have you recently charged the batteries? If the scooter has been sitting unused for a while the batteries may not take a full charge and need to be replaced. If the batteries are good, check the fuses and all of the battery connections to ensure nothing has come lose. Sounds like a power issue.
Good luck!

Beeper sounds as you press forward or reverse no drive. this is the same sound you hear if the brake had been disengaged batteries have been renewed and all connections checked.

hi, it a general error - warning sound, if the wheelchair has got wet then I suggust you carefully go all over the wheelchair looking for damp connectors , simply re-inserting them should do the trick,

Make sure all connectors are tight and make sure the freewheel switch is working correctly, that can stick.

Beeper sounds as soon asyou press forward or reverse will not drive brake engaged tthis is the same sound if you tried to move with the brake disengaged.

This could be the break micro switch or the wiring in the motor brake loom. check all connections in this area. You do not say what make or model this is ? !

It sounds like it could be locked. Try pressing and holding the power button until it bleeps. then move the joystick to the forward position and hold until it bleeps. Then move the joystick to the reverse position until it bleeps. turn off and then back on.

Check your manual for locking/unlocking. Hope it works

No movement, forward or reverse

sounds like it is in neutral, look for a lever on the bottom, rear of the scooter to pull up
