The battery takes a charge, but will not power scooter

Cosco ability care essentials 4 Wheel Mobility Scooter, similar to the Golden Technologies Avenger 4 Wheel Electric scooter.
The battery takes a charge, even got a new one, but the only thing that works is the horn, and just barely. The scooter won't move at all. I tried tightening all the electrical connections but still got the same result. Any Ideas?

This scooter require two batteries, not one. It is usually a good idea to replace both batteries at the same time, even though one is obviously bad, and the other "seems" okay. These 12 volt DC batteries (VDC) work in tandem to produce the 24 volts that the scooter operates on. In a perfect world, they would both live a long and happy life, but reality is that some die young, others old. Since they are joined together, the one that's going out saps the life out of the other one, so take a bullet and replace both batteries. Make sure you completely charge the scooter when you get the new ones in. Verify that your charger is working properly. To properly charge the 24 VDC system, the chargers have to have an output of about 26-28VDC. The output must be higher than the rated voltage of the two batteries put together to charge. While you have the shell off the scooter, you can see if the charger is working by measuring across the terminal on each battery with the charger off. Note the meter reading. It should be 12-13 VDC. Put it on the charger and retake the reading, and each battery should show an increase in the voltage due to the boost from the charger. After three hours, each battery should show about a 13.5 VDC reading which should hold above 12 for a good 8-10 miles. Always charge your batteries overnight, and if not in use, disconnect them completely with a full charge on the batteries.

Normally the motor brushes but i don't think you can change them
try connecting the motor directly to the batteries to eliminate all other parts if same problem change the motor (if you can get one)

Won't move lite on battery fully charged

I had this problem with the Cosco 4 wheel scooter. It turned out that one of the primary power lines under the shroud (back housing cover) was loose. It was not disconnected -- just loose. Apparently the loose connection would support enough current flow for the diagnostic circuit, but not enough to move the scooter (similar to using too small of a wire gauge in its effect). Once the power cable connector was tightened down so that the cable would not rotate on the connector, everything worked correctly.
The same symptoms could also be caused by a faulty power cable. If you have access to a multimeter, test the resistance along each cable path. If a path has an unusually high resistance, compared to the others, start to look for problems there.
