SOURCE: after using the scooter for about 15-20 min. much

Phud Bad brake!!! the brake disc pad is dragging on the motor housing and causing the squealing and battery drain. The motor housing is also getting very warm after that period of time. Replace the brake assembly Hope this helps

I would suspect the brake is not releasing correctly and dragging on the motor housing. Try driving the scooter a short distance and feel the motor case at the rear near the brake assembly if it is very warm or hot the the brake is sticking and will have to be replaced. Hope this helps

You can try to do this with the cover off, just in case it is not seated properly and holding the lever from fully engaging. The actual swithc is a small microswitch down at the brake, and it can get dirt in it and that will stop it from working, or it may even fail, and need to be replaced. So I would:
1) try it woth the shroud off the motor using.
2) look for dirt around the switch.
3) take a paperclip and jump the scooter side of the switch to bypass the microswitch on the scooter, be careful not to short the jumper to the scooter frame.

Let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: Pride Gogo scooter breaks don't work when I come to a stop

hi, so would it be right to say you can still push it when you stop ?
The brake simply stops the scooter from moving , it does not slow you down, the motor does that.

Does the brake click when it comes to rest ?, if the scooter has not been used for sometime or kept out in the cold it can start to seize, so spray some WD40 or contact cleaner would be best in the slot around the brake area now remember you just lubricated the brake so don't go near hills or road until you used it and you're sure the brake is working again.

SOURCE: Scooter beeps and won't go. Gear doesn't click into "engaged" mode sometimes. It seems to slip between "engaged" and "freewheel".

sounds to me like the starter solenoid that's what I would replce first , then look towards new battery's if that fails .

Getting a 250 Rascal Motorized Scooter to run when battery indicator shows green. Is there a safety feature that we are unaware of?

If you leave the battery charger plug in the charging port the scooter will not move. If the disengagement lever is not engaged the motors will not run either.

Pride Celebrity x. Batteries drain quickly despite new full charged batteries. When scooter is pushed in freewheel- brakes engage every few feet. Have to turn scooter on/off to get brakes to release.

hi Diane, the brake engaging is by design, distance is the key here

Have you tried another charger ?

1. when pushing the scooter in freewheel before the brake engages , is it easy to push ? what can happen is the brake does not release 100%, a easy test is to run the scooter then put your hand on the brake unit , is it hot ? be careful because it could be very hot , this will prove the brake is not releasing fully.

Phoenix 3 red light flashes but scooter will not move

This usually indicates a high voltage/current issue. Check your wiring for discoloration and melted connectors. Usually replacing damaged or worn wiring will fix this unless you have a defective component causing the high current issue. I would definitely look at the wiring very close. A high voltage/current issue can damage sensitive components if not found and be very costly to fix. Replacing the battery wiring harnesses and related wiring should fix this problem.

Scooter just stopped moving .new battery. tryed reset button

Did you replace both batteries at the same time? has the scooter been sitting idle for a while? Are the lights on the controller flashing or steady? If no lights come on at all, you may have blown a fuse. If the lights are flashing, this link may help you to diagnose what the problem may be related to:
Locate the page that has the controller used on your power chair/scooter and count how many lights are flashing to diagnose the trouble. If your insurance purchased the power chair for you, they may also cover the repairs; contact them for information.
Good luck!

Moter engaging wheels not turning

Hi Jimmy. Does your machine display and flashing lights, if it does, count the flashes between the pauses. This is a fault code. If you let us know how many flashes, we can help you.
It might be a stuck motor brush. Undo the caps and see if either brush is stuck. A light file with a fine file might help. Careful tightening the brush caps as they can crack if done up to tight.
Good luck. Neil.

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 ? !

Soft top 97' problem

Open the trunk. Remove the material covering on the left hand side. You will see 2 electric motors(similiar to the ones that wind the windows). One motor open and closes the roof lid the other brings the roof up or down.

These motors can be engaged and disengaged manually. 

First check that the motor's are working. 

If the motors are working. 

Then engage and disengage until they are in sync and open and closes the roof in the correct order.

Please come to me for further assistance.
