Possible dsmsge from driving weeks with high oil pressure? btw 2004 GMC Yukon XL Denali


No damage will occur. Have you checked the oil pressure with a manual test gage? If not do that and please understand GM oil pressure gages are prone to reading high pressure when the sender is defective.

I charge the battery and mark it's full charge,but on the scooter the indicator don't mark is full charge and when you drive,the speed just suddenly will drop and come back ok.


Charging batteries to full means leave on charge for 12 -16 hours as it may show charged but the charger goes into what is called a battery conditioning mode where a small trickle charge takes place to fully charge batteries. Again, how old are batteries and have you had them load tested at all?

Scooter wont go


It could be a battery connection, or maybe your key switch?
Or a connection problem between batteries and the motor controller
or the free wheel switch is on.

Schooter slowsdown that stops after a while schooter starts


I'm assuming you have a full charge on your batteries? The problem is that the charger can be fulled into thinking that your batteries are at a full charge when they are not. The battery will put out he correct voltage so your voltage gage reads right. The battery will put out the correct resistance so the charger will see a charged battery. Chargers work by resistance the lower the resistance the harder the charger works to charge the battery. So the only way to determine the real state of charge is to bring the batteries to a battery shop. Have them load test the battery in your presence if the battery is new. This is not a pass or fail test.What we are looking for is the upper limit of the cranking amps the battery will output.They may tell you this battery isn't supposed to be measured that way because in battery is not used to start a car. Well most of the equipment is geared for measuring car batteries. For what we are doing here it doesn't matter. For my scooter batteries i use two 12v 35amp/hr batteries. Have them grab a new one off the shelf, have them find the upper limit of the amp output. What happened to me is i didn't watch them do this test. The instrument he was using will give you a pass.or fail indication at a preset level of about 150 amp/hr unless you manually input a higher level to test for. This was a new battery and they want it to pass. I had them find the upper limit of a new off the shelf battery by entering higher values into the test instrument until it failed back off on the value until i found it passed. A new battery like the one my scooter uses will put out close to 500 cranking amps. Well when i tested my battery it barely reached 200 cranking amps. So in fact this battery doesn't have the capacity of the off the shelf battery. So as you load it the voltage goes down. My motor controller will detect that and give me a fail indication.

oK if this is not the problem we can look for amp leaks. Put a amp meter between the battery and the load. Turn the scooter off, get a reading?.If you do something is either on or a resistive short drawing down your battery. Disconnect stuff until the reading is zero. What ever you disconnected last will give you the section of the scooter the problem is coming from. Like if you disconnect the control head and it drops to zero i would start there. Turn the scooter on there should be an indication, but it should be under an amp. Now get the rear wheels up so that they can rotate freely. Apply just enough power to move the wheels. Look at the meter if its a analog meter does it jump around. Does the motor stall at any time. If the first thing happens you have a partially shorted winding in the motor. IF the second thing happens the meter will jump up or down indicating either an open or shorted winding.
Now floor it jot down the amp draw. IS it excessive? We check this by doing the math. My scooter use two 12 v 35 amp/hr batteries hooked in series. So i have a 24v system @ 35amp/hr, the scooter has a loaded range of 25 mile at a speed of 5 mph.So my battery life is going to be about 5 hours. So we can say the motor loaded on a flat surface will use about 7 amp/hr. So running the motor flat out unloaded is going to be less than 7 amp/hr. My scooter's motor runs at about >5 amp/hr unloaded. Hope this helps

My gas gage go from full to empty


Chevy has a very common problem with their fuel sending units (the thing that sends the fuel level info to your computer). The only way to fix it is to replace the fuel pump/sending unit assembly which is very pricey (over $1000 if you go to the dealer). If you can just zero your trip odometer every time you fill up and don't drive more than say 250 miles before you fill again you should be able to drive without running out of gas.

Full battery power but still wont go


Check the brake leveler at the back of the scooter. If you can push the scooter this means its in free wheel. Move the brake then switch the scooter on and try.

Shows full charge,goes ok for a little while but then stops turn off then on goes very slow for seconds then stops again.


Hi Susan, I repair power wheel chairs, Its possible that your chair has a bad battery on it , all p/chairs have 2 batteries.And even though you show a full charge one battery may have a bad cell in it you need to get both batteries load tested . I think you my find one of them bad. take them out of chair and have them tested.You can get replacement batteries , and have yours tested at a store that sells batteries only, look in yellow pages for a battery store . Good luck, Erik

Lil rascal stopped again


make sure you hands are not touching the forward or reverse lever when you insert the key. many times if you have your finger or thumb touching the lever just a tid, the scooter will only move a little then stop, or not work at all. this is a safty. Usally I change out the throttle pot and the Key switch (speed pot) together. As for the price, He didn't over charge you if the 150.00 included his labor. Ask if he can replace the throttle if the product is less then 30 days old. But be prepaird to pay shipping and his labor for replacing the first one.
