Where do I find the free wheel controller and where do I find the large connections where the front and rear seperate

An earler question related to my shoprider scooter which would not have any reverse or forward movement when the key was turned on, my answer was to make sure the free wheeler lever was engaged and I should check the Controller or large connections. I have now released the freewheel lever then sharply engage it again, the movement forward and reverse now work ok but I would like to know how to find and check the above connections to make sure all is ok..

SOURCE: 4 wheel drive will not engage.

use a hohm meter to check the hub coils . the hub coils should have zero resistance. if the armeture plates shows wear marks on them clean and let dry then paint the back side of them with black tremmclad paint .also make sure that the bearings in the helix are not binding. if they are u can take them apaart and lightly file the slots some so the bearings move freely.
that sloved my problem

SOURCE: no movement, forward or reverse

sounds like it is in neutral, look for a lever on the bottom, rear of the scooter to pull up

Could be the shifter inside the gearbox or it could be a stripped gear or broken chain. The bad news is you will have to remove the gearbox from the engine and then open the gearbox to see what is going on. This is quite time consuming but taking to a shop for this is very expensive due to the labor involved. You can do it yourself if you pay attention to how you take it apart. I hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: Engage 4wd lever. no light

Good Afternoon. We use these type trucks for our plowing during the winter so I am familiar with what you're going through. There is a fuse for the 4wd, and there is an actuator in the front differential. What you might try first is to get under the truck and pull out the actuator and then put it in 4wd if it moves out it is locking in your front end. Hope that helps.

My scooter

I don't know the answer but I will take a guess.

These mobility scooters use a lot of electronics. Switch mode power supplies are a way of controlling a dc motor more efficiently than with rheostats or the solid state equivalent, large power transistors. There are also electronics and relays to change the polarity for reversing and further electronics to prevent the scooter being able to reverse as fast as it goes forward.

When two motors are used they could share some of the same electronics or the electronics could be duplicated for each motor. While this would provide a fairly basic control there are some considerations, namely the front wheels travel further than the back when going around corners and during this the rear motor will be pushing the front motor and it will be acting as a generator.

The circuitry has a lot to do as apart from controlling each motor it must synchronise them so they consistently produce the same effort and at the same time allow the front motor to speed up slightly when cornering so the rear motor doesn't have to push it.

Clearly it is a requirement the two motors must talk to each other via the circuitry. While it would be better that each motor provides torque feedback, such a system would be complex and expensive and so it is more likely the current each motor consumes is monitored and synchronised via intelligent circuitry.

From your description I suspect the problem is a breakdown in communication between the two motors or the current monitoring or the synchronisation circuitry.
Usually scooter manufacturers assemble all the circuitry on a single board and seem reluctant to offer a checking and repair service, preferring instead to sell complete boards at inflated prices.

Double checking all the connections might produce results but the chances are you won't be able to go much further without a complete circuit diagram.

Where can i find the motor starter

Typically the starter motor is on the passenger side of a rear wheel drive vehicle and on the back side of a front wheel drive vehicle. It is possible to trace the route of the large red cable from the positive terminal of the battery. It is connected to the starter relay which is typically attached to the top of the starter motor.

Will shift into 4-wheel drive lo 4 hi but front won't pull. rear wheels spin in a bind, no pull on front it is on a chev s-10 2001 model auto trans.

It sounds like the transfer ase is working ok. My guess is the problem is vacuum related. Check all your vacuum lines for loose connections, rotted rubber, etc. There is one line that goes to a vacuum operate actuator under the battery. You will have to remove the battery tray and battery to get to it. That is a large diameter vacuum hose that has to make a sharp bend to attach to the actuator. When it gets old and weathered, it loses it's flexibility and comes off the actuator. It controls the switch that locks the front axles. If hooking it back up gets your 4wd working again, replace all your vacuum lines to avoid future problems.

How to replace brakes on 2002 BMW X5 4.4liter...does the hub come off in one piece.....or doesi it have to be seperated? Thanks, Gene

Rear brakes or Front Brakes? Once the rear drums are removed you have access to all the brake parts for the rear brakes. As far as the front pads are concernedonce you remove teh wheel you ahve access to the caliper assembly which is removed by loosening the two retaining bolts on the back side of the caliper and it lifts off to remove and replace the pads themselves then goes right back on. You will need an Allen Wrench of the proper size to remove the retaining bolts, a caliper compressor to do the front brakes. To remove the rear brakes once the drum is removed you have to use a brake repair tool or a large Flat head screwdriver and a large pair of needle nose pliers. The initial retaining clips for the rear brakes can be removed by grasping the exposed end and turning 90 degrees then use the screwdriver to stretch and leverage off the spring assemblies that operate the brakes.

How do I determine if the car is front wheel drive or rear wheel drive?

Generally, trucks, vans and large cars with big engines will have rear-wheel drive. Smaller, economy and compact cars are most often front-wheel drive. But you don't have to guess which one you have - find out for yourself.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Instructions

  1. Understand that front-wheel drive means the power from the engine and the transmission goes to the front wheels; rear-wheel drive means the power goes to the rear wheels. Four-wheel, or all-wheel, drive means all four wheels are powered.

  2. Open the hood.

  3. Find the front of the engine. The front of the engine is always where the belts are located.

  4. Look to see if the front of the engine is by the fender (side of the car). If so, then you have front-wheel drive.

  5. Check to see if the front of the engine is by the radiator and the grill (front of the car). If so, then you have rear-wheel drive.

  6. Look under the car near each front wheel. If you see an axle with a rubber boot (called the CV boot) on either end going into the wheel, then you have front- wheel drive.

  7. Look under the car between the rear wheels. If you see a large, metal, pumpkin- shaped thing (it's called the differential) with two axles coming out either side, then you have rear-wheel drive.

  8. Check both under the hood for the position of the engine and under the car for the axles to be sure, because not every car follows the rules for engine position and front- or rear-wheel drive (see Tips below for examples of cars with variations on this rule).

Good Luck

I have a 2002four wheel Legend Mobility scooter.

Hi. A lot of scooters have a seperate switch to select a high or low speed setting.
This switch is sometimes labeled indoor/ outdoor.
I have had a few scooters with a similar fault, and the wires that connect to the high/low switch have broken of the terminals on the rear of the switch.
It could also be a faulty speed control pot.
Check these and good luck. Neil.

1995 bmw 525i

Very common BMW problem. The front lateral arms that support the front to rear motion of the wheel. BMW calls it the upper, lower support arm. Two arms connect there. one left to right (think typical lower control arm, and this arm) It has a ball joint that connects to the lower most part of the strut and extends rearward to the rear crossmember and has a large bushing pressed into the arm. You can replace just the bushing if the ball joint end is ok. Bushings are about $45 each and you will need a press.
