The batteries are to low for the auto charger to work so either replace batteries or have them load tested to see if they are any good. Personally I would replace them.

SOURCE: shop rider sovereign voltage indication. Brand new fully charged

hi Richard,

Does the scooter actually lose power after the 3 leds show ?

If it is losing power then a suggest to try some other batteries to confirm dodgy batteries, check the terminal connections etc.

If it does not lose power then the volt meter is at fault, if you can check the voltage before riding then after it shows only 3 leds , if there is a big drop, check the charger first to make sure the batteries are getting fully charged.

Regards
GeWiz.,

SOURCE: batteries won't charge

Hi. Sounds like there is a faulty connection somewhere between the charger and the batteries. Are the batteries connected correctly. The charger uses the voltage level in the batteries to regulate itself. If there is a faulty connection, then the charge will not operate. Use a multi-meter to check if the batteries are connected correctly. There should be 24 to 26 volts across both batteries.
This fault can also be caused by a faulty charger socket. Check for any signs of melting or heat damage. There might also be a disconnected wire in the plug on the charger itself.Good luck. Neil.

SOURCE: new charger for 36 volt

HI.It should be connected in that way.The + sign of the charger connected to the +sign of the batt then connect the - batt next then finally connect the -sign of the batt and finalle the+ sign of the last batt must be connected to the -sign of the charger.This connection allows the voltage to flow within the 3 batteries.Thank you for choosing FIXYA.

SOURCE: Cannot charge the 12 volt battery more than 10 volts. Is there a service manual available

What type of battery is it, sounds like you have one shorted cell. Each battery is made up of 6 cells, around 2 volts a piece. Sorry, you probably need a new battery.

Charged battery turned key nothing happens just slight clicking sound any advise to what may be wrong


How old are the batteries ? Have you had them load tested?

First thing to check is batteries for Volts. if less then 12 volts each then either the charger is no good or the batteries have had there day.

Check batteries on scooter with the charger on and you should get around 26 volts which would say your charger is ok.

With a Pride Scooter the charger will turn green if its fully charged and if there is a bad connection in the wiring with the batteries. If you plug in the charger and the light comes on green right away then there is a problem with the wiring or connections. Take a voltmeter and read the voltage at each battery. Fully charged they should be 13-15 volts each. If they are less than 12 volts then they are not charged and the charger is not working correctly. If the batteries are really low like less than 8 volts each then the scooter might not come on at all. If you find that the batteries have at least 12 volts or more then there is a wiring problem from the rear of the scooter to the front tiller. Pride has a habit of developing problems in the harness running from the rear to the tiller. My suggestion is to contact your provider (where you got the scooter) and have them troubleshoot the scooter. If the scooter is less than a year old then it should be under warranty and your provider will have to fix it under warranty. Sorry I don't have a quick fix for you but scooters are notoriously bad to troubleshoot and repair, especially long distance. Hope this helps you

Mark Batteries your charger is putting our enuf 13.15 volts for each battery so after charging all night you should be reading about 13 volts on each. If your batts are only 12 volts after all night charge then batteries are weak Hope this helps

I just bought new batteries for my Pride Ultra Go Go, but can't get them to start charging when I plug the charger directly into the outlet. Help please.


1.Make sure you installed them correctly.
2.Check the voltage on the batteries. If either (or both) register less than 11 volts, either return them for ones that have 12 volts, or attempt to bring them up to 12 volts with an automobile battery charger. Once brought up to 12 volts, install them, then make sure you recharge them with the supplied charger/adapter before or when the on-board indicator it shows low (red). If the battery voltage drops too low, the supplied charger simply won't even try to charge them.

We have a 11 month old elite traveler scooter. The battery will not take a charge. We have had no previous problems. Any suggestions?


I just fixed this problem in a Go Go Elite that was less than 6 months old. We would plug in the charger and the "charge" light would not turn on, just the "power light" I took out the battery pack (check manual for instructions), removed the cover (8 philips head screws) and checked the voltage on the two batteries. One read 4.5 volts and the other 4.7 volts. They should both read at least 11 volts, ideally 12 volts. Evidently the Pride charger will not work if it detects that the batteries are too low. So I took out one battery at a time and connected a 12 volt auto trickle charger to it for 3 hours on each battery. Checked voltages and it brought them back up to 11.5 volts. I reinstalled the battery pack and then connected the Pride charger and THEN it showed a "Charge" light. I left the pride charger on for 12 hours and it brought it up to full charge.
Advice: Don't let your batteries get too low or the factory charger will not work.

Have a 1996 Taurus wagon--dead battery--got brand new battery and connected it properly and car barely turns over and wont turn enough to start--car was sitting for about three months


Was the battery checked before it was sold to you? Batteries will lose their charge over a period of time even when not hooked up. If you have a voltmeter it should read 12.8 volts on a fully charged battery.
Have you tried to boost the car with cables?
I suspect if the car was working OK 3 months ago it should start. Which leads me to suggest an undercharged battery.
