Question about Health & Beauty

1 Answer

My mobility scooter constantly beeps when switched on and will not move. Brand new lucas batteries installed and charged for 10 hours.

I purchased this scooter second hand, it is the folding model, so it detaches into 2 seperate parts. The scooter when purchased made this low beeping noise. It sounds like it is coming from the battery compartment area. Since purchasing i have brought 2 new lucas batteries and a new charger. But still the problem is there. Any ideas?

SOURCE: the battery is fully charged but the scooter will not move.

Is it the small portable scooter? The one with the base that comes apart for transporting? Could it be a bad connection where it goes back together?

If it is the portable, try disconnecting the rear drive portion from the base and re-installing it so it clicks into place.

SOURCE: I have purchased new batteries for my mobility

The control seems to be the issue. I have rewired so many scooters. When you have power and it wont go, it is usually the control. If you cannot afford the part right away, you can rewire it or have it rewired direct

My gogo ultra is showing fully charged and horn beeps, when i put key in it beeps fast 10 times and 5 beeps after


5 beeps usually means scooter is out of gear, but since the lever is in the drive position and the scooter gearbox/differential is engaged, it seems that the controller is not sensing the gear change. Possibly a faulty micro switch in the motor housing can be the cause of this, usually the micro switch is pressed down by the drive lever and if the switch is pressed down the motor controller knows the scooter is in gear.

Batteries wont charge


You would need a voltmeter to check the charger in order to see if it is charging the batteries. New batteries if purchased from a reputable outfit will have a nominal charge and should work initially in order to test the scooter. Depending on the model check for blown fuses and disconnected wires on the battery boxes, connections, plugs and charging circuits including the wall outlet. The display on the scooter will indicate the state of charge and the key switch should work and give an initial indication that the scooter is on. If you provide make and model I can respond with more specific information.

Mobility scooter beeps but will not move


The 5-beeps indicates you are in free-wheeling mode. If the free-wheeling brake disengage lever is in the correct position then you likely have a bad brake switch or bad brake coil assembly.
Verify free wheel lever is in correct position and Replace the bad component if necessary.

Scooter does not move either direction. when i insert the key i get 10 fast beeps and the 9 slower beeps


This scooter has an S drive controller. The beep code will begin with 10 very fast beeps followed by a number of slower beeps. The number of slower beeps indicates the actual code. It will do this only once. To repeat the beep code, remove and reinsert the key.
Beep code #9 is a possible controller trip.
Diagnosis:
The key may have been inserted during battery box installation.
The controller may be overheated.
The brake is dragging or pulling too much current.
Solution:
Remove the key from the key switch before installing the battery box.
If the problem persists shut down the scooter for 10-15 minutes and allow the controller to cool down.
Bottom line is that you may need a new controller or brake. Keep in mind these may be warranty items. A qualified technician may be needed to diagnose and repair the problem. Hope this helps.

When I turn the key on it beeps 10 times and then pauses and beeps 5 times. The manual says that the five beeps indicate the manual freewheel lever needs to be put in drive. I did exactly as the manual...


The beep code will begin with 10 very fast beeps, followed by 5 slower beeps. The 5 slower beeps is your actual code. The beep code 5 is a brake fault.
The scooter may be in freewheel mode or there may be a short in the brake.
Make sure the scooter is in drive mode with the rear brake lever in the correct position. If that does not clear the fault you need to check the electromagnetic brake.
To check the brake you need a digital voltmeter. The brake should read 30 to 65 ohms when you read across the pins. You need to measure the resistance at each successive point on the harness because there are 5 connectors. While you are inspecting these plugs, check for corrosion, loose pins, broken wires, and pins not making good contact. Disassemble the front and rear halves of the scooter when you do this.
If all the resistance checks are good up to the controller plug for the brake, you have a bad controller. With that being said, I usually see a bad connection at the multiple points in-between. Sometimes the wires for the brake will melt at the connector at the controller.
Inspect these areas visually, removing the rear cover of the brake/motor/transaxle and the controller. An experienced tech should charge you under 1 hour labor for the diagnosis. You may be able to save some money by checking the obvious areas for unplugged or bad connections first.
The brake will cost about $250, the interface wiring and connectors about $50 and the controller is about $500. For this reason, you should invest in a good tech to diagnose the problem first, before proceeding with any hit and miss do it yourself repairs.
Including a second visit to install the new parts, labor cost should not exceed 2 hours total.
This is a very popular model so you should be able to find an experienced tech in your area.

We have a Fortress Scientific 2000 electric scooter that hasn't been used for several years. We put in new batteries, it shows fully charged, comes on and has a steady beep, but won't go forward or...


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.

Charging


i would say it all depends on how many AH your battery is and what amp your charger is they differ between 8 to 14 hours that is for new batteries as a battery gets older the less time it takes to charge so if your batteries are getting fully charged in 2 hours its time to start thinking of changing them
good luck and hope this helps
