You will need the make, model and the serial number off your scooter. The serial number should be on the frame down under the shroud cover under the seat. Call the manufacturer with this info, and they will either issue you a part, or usually, refer you to an authorized repair facility for replacement of the part. Replacement is pretty straightforward once you have the tiller shroud opened up. Good luck.

My golden companion 2 Gc 321 goes forward when i push reverse and goes reverse when i push forward


Sounds like the motor cables are in reverse at the controller. Check that the red is in the positive and the black wire is in the negative on the controller.

User needs to use left hand for forward and reverse and would like wires switched


hi, you need to expose the throttle pot that is the pot attached to the lever you move to go forward or backwards, normally it a top cover known as the tiller cover, once you done that you see the throttle pot has three legs with coloured wires attached now you need to crossover the outside wires, not the centre one, by doing this you're are moving the reserve to the right hand side and the forward to the left hand side.

if you require more assistance then please let me know..

that's it,
regards

please give me feedback

Go go traveller mobility scooter lurches forward when finger is released off forward control lever. mum has problems getting it to move forwards smoothly and slowly without it suddenly moving forwards...


That lever is attached to a pot. Pots have this nasty habit of oxidizing. You can either replace it or get some CRC QD Contact Cleaner. Wash it down trying to get as much cleaner into the pot as you can. These pots are normally not sealed find a little hole and spay it there. While your in the control head use the cleaner to clean anything you find in there. Stall having problems contact me.

Hi my scooter will drive in reverse on its own at all kinds of speeds if u leave the key on and is slow in forward only it will only stop in reverse if you turn of key or disconnect the forward or reverse...


Hi tandseaster,
I have owned my own business for 3 years and have been working on scooters and powerchairs for 15 years. I know exactly what the problem is. I can almost tell you what kind of scooter you have. In the future give as much info about the scooter as possible.
Your problem is the throttle pot or somtime called the engager.
You can do one of two things. 1. Open the faceplate to your tiller. look for a lock nut on the throttle pot. loosen it, on the bottom of the pot is a slot for a flat tip screwdriver. Take the key out before you start this procedure. You can turn the screw slot on the pot a little at a time, one way then the other. Turn the key back on, turn the speed pot to lowest speed so the scooter won't take off on you. Once you align the throttle pot to neutral tighten the lock nut. The easiest way to fix your problem is:
2. Replace the throttle pot.
Your problem will be fixed.

Good Luck
Tim

Hi my days strider midi4 keeps going in reverse for about 4 seconds after you take the throttle off


spares sounds like the throttle pot is not being centered upon release making the scooter move in reverse or forward depending on which way it is off center. try pushing on the thottle lever slowly forward when you stop to see if that stops the creeping. Then you can try to adjust the pot by loosening the lever and retightening it in the forward direction that stops the creeping. You might have to order a new throttle pot assembly to get this working right. Hope this helps

Go Go Scooter travels in reverse, but when going forward it comes to an abrupt stop every few seconds. Everything else appears to work normally. Any ideas?


csr4 Well it could be the throttle pot or the speed control pot My leanings is toward the throttle pot since it works in reverse with the speed pot not being changed but not forward. when you are just changing the position of the throttle to forward thereby changing the pot wiper and getting the error. Contact Pride about the problem at 1-800-800-8586 and ask for Tech support for scooters and explain your problem to them. I hope this helps

I have a milan mobility scooter,turn the key & it sounds a low


Hi. This sounds difficult. I have had a few scooters move slowly forward or in reverse, but not both. Normally if the speed pot ( wig wag ) is not exactly in the central position, they can do this.
It is possible for a scooter to have your problem, if the speed lever is binding or rubbing on the housing. Normally the lever is returned to the middle by a spring around the speed pot shaft. If this spring is loose or broken, then this could also cause the problem. Sometimes a small spot of oil or grease will help.
To check the speed lever is in the middle, slowly move the lever for forward untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Now release the lever and slowly pull it for reverse untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Make sure that the speed lever moves the same amount for forward as it does for reverse. If not adjust it with the key off.
If you get the machine to drive properly, then change the controller to see if it is OK.
As for the beeping, a lot of machines will go into an error mode if the speed lever is not in the central position when you turn the key on. This is a safety precausion.
Good luck. Neil.
