    Thanks Jeff. Although it wouldn't move yesterday it was fine this morning so it's not that simple.
    Will lift it onto the bench when I get clearance from hospital & investigate a bit further, I hate intermittent faults.

This sounds like the Wig-Wag could be at fault or the wiring to the controller.

My scooter will not work when you select reverse , i need to go forward and immediatly go into reverse to make it work ,,why ?

it sounds like the speed pot is faulty, or otherwise known as a wig wam,

it sounds like its worn or simply come loose, there should be a allen screw in the side of the throttle lever, when in central position , tighting up the allen screw .

Also check the connection between the pot and main board it plugs into.

Forward/reverse pot is flaky, where can I buy one?

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.

Shoprider sovereign when switching on and pressing reverse scooter will not move but reverse bleeper sounds nor will scooter move forwards. switch off and on again and on then works correctly

If the freewheel lever has been operated while key is in on position the scooter will not operate until key is turned off and then on again, make sure freewheel lever is in drive position. hope this helps.

Shoprider deluxe te-889af loses power when reversing

I think that this is usual to have a slower reverse speed for safety.But on your shoprider you should have 4mph and 8mph ,usually if you are at 8mph it won`t reverse at that speed, you have to go to 4mph ,look infront of you there is a dial this controls the speed that you go forward and reverse.If reverse speed needs to be increased turn the dial up,but don`t forget this also increases forwards.
