Look for a lever sticking through the rear cover close to the rear wheels. You can go the scooter's website and download a manual.

My Mother buggy does the same and you can damage the gearbox, so I use a elastic try down to the bumper this stops it from moving but should there be a need I can remove it.

the Freewhel mech may have come loose so check it out.

SOURCE: The electric brake on an old Triumph mobility

Hi. I have had a few cases where the brake pad will be stuck to the body with rust if it has been sitting in a damp room. A few taps with a small screw driver has fixed this. Put the machine in free-wheel first.
Does the machine bring up any fault codes, or is it too old for that feature. Possibly the brake unit has a short and has been getting too hot.
Does the brake unit have a micro switch on it? Try removing the brake unit off the motor, but leave it connected to the wiring. This will tell you if anything else is faulty. Leave the machine up on blocks while doing this, so you dont have an accident.
Good luck. Neil.

SOURCE: I have a pride gogo

  • What that flash code indicates that there is that the battery voltage is to high to operate the scooter. This can happen for a number of reasons and from out of no where. The manual says you should contact GoGo for this problem. But I know a couple things to try and if they do not work then you need to contact GoGo.
  1. First remove the battery connectors for 5 full minutes and see if that resets it.
  2. You may have a wire that got caught up somewhere so check all wires for breaks in the insulation, cracks etx.
  3. Check the fuse as well.
  4. Push in the main circuit breaker reset button (see diagram)


  • Here is the GoGo Pride Scooter website should you need to contact them and if what I listed does not work then you need to. The things I list are some at home troubleshooting tips GoGo does not offer. They say to contact them immediately.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Stopped going when free wheel lever accidently pushed forward. Put back. Still wont start.

Check for error codes. Move free wheel lever in and out a few times in case the brake micro switch is not making correctly.
Check speed control is not turned down low.

The error lite on Buzzaround Lite scooter flashing

5 flash code is the electro magnetic Brake. This is referring to the brake on the motor that can be released by the freewheel lever.

1. place the freewheel lever into the free wheel position. Ensure the scooter is in free wheel and move the scooter forwards and backwards a few times.

2. Place the freewheel lever in drive position, push on scooter to ensure it is in drive and does not move. Turn on key and press the throttle. If you have the same code again, call a technician to check the brake, chances are it needs replaced.

Put in new batteries status light blinks no forward or reverse

The blinking is a flash code, maybe you should check the free wheel lever is in the drive position."hard to manually push"

Battery fully charged,horn works but no power to drive wheels

Make sure your freewheel brake is in the DRIVE position. Check your owner's manual for the location of the free wheel lever, ususally it is near the rear of the scooter. If the chair is in DRIVE mode but the wheels will not turn, you may have a motor problem which would require replacing the motors.

Error code

Typically this signals the free wheel brake lever is engaged. Turn your scooter off, then push the brake lever (the handle sticking out the top of the scooter back end) completely forward. Turn scooter back on.

I haVe two golden companion scooters that worked Perfectly. One day they just quit running. I know that when the light blinks a certain number of times in the manual it tells you what's wrong. Both of mine...

Hi. 5 flashes on some scooters is the fault code for brake coil open circuit. This usually means that the free-wheel lever is in the wrong position.
Someone might have moved the levers so that they could push the scooters, and forgot to put the levers back to the correct position.
This fault code can also mean that the solenoid coil is faulty, but 9 times out of 10, it is the lever in the wrong position.
Good luck. Neil.

New batteries, fully charged, still wont work

I will ask but don't take offence, so many people overlook the obvious, have you checked the free wheel lever/s are not set to free wheel (if it is the scooter will be relatively easy to push forward or backward) if set to free wheel then move lever/s to drive position
this is a link for the sonic scooter user guide, not 100% sure that it is the exact one or not but it should show you were to find the free wheel lock on your scooter it is in this guide and I would be surprised if it is not the same as yours. Hope that helps. Mark.
