Firstly disengage the drive levers and then "flick "them in fash.
Second pull out the large plug that is between them.
Check for damaged or bent or loose pins. press it home firmly .
I did this on my wifes chair and she zooms around.
All switched etc should be off during charge.
Lastly i fully discharged then recharged the battery to ensure no "battery charge memory".
To fully dicharge i shoved a small box between back wheels so to lift of ground and then a elastic band to hond controler on.

Hi. I have had a few scooters that have had this problem after sitting for a while. The brake lining is stuck to the body of the brake assembly. When the brake is energised by the controller, it can't release.
De-clutch the machine like you did, and try rocking the machine back and forth. If this doesn't work you might have to have a new brake assembly fitted.
The wheels turn in opposite directions, because the drive is through the differential unit in the rear axle. Even a car will do this if the driving axle is raised in the air.
I have also had a few cases of stuck motor brushes in these machines, but from your description, I would say it is the brake assembly.
Good luck. Neil.

Testimonial: "It was a frozen brake. I took the brake to pieces,a lot of little springs spacers indent springs and rollers jumped out. Cleaned all components and spent a few hours figuring it out for re assembly. Working fine now . Thanks for your prompt and accurate reply. PeterR"
Yep There are 3 possible problems 1. Make sure that the key is out of the lock before reinstalling the battery pack. 2. The controller is overheating. Let it rest 10-15 minutes to cool down if it happens again and 3. I think you are having a brake problem where the brake is not fully disengaging from the motor and causing excess drag on the motor.
You can remove the brake from the rear of the motor being careful not to break or pull the wires going to the brake. Tie the brake up away from the motor keeping the wires intact. Try driving the scooter and see if it still shutters. If it doesn't then you can use it like that but you will have no brake and if you use ramps it is dangerous. You can carefully remove the brake pad and give it a good cleaning along with the face of the motor where the brake pad rubs. Then reinstall all the parts and try your scooter again. The shuttering should stop and to excess overload of the motor should stop too. You could replace the brake by contacting Pride Mobility @1-800-800-8586 and talk with tech support to find out if you can just replace the brake assembly. Hope this helps you

SOURCE: when I turn the key
The beep code will begin with 10 very fast beeps, followed by 5 slower beeps. The 5 slower beeps is your actual code. The beep code 5 is a brake fault.
The scooter may be in freewheel mode or there may be a short in the brake.
Make sure the scooter is in drive mode with the rear brake lever in the correct position. If that does not clear the fault you need to check the electromagnetic brake.
To check the brake you need a digital voltmeter. The brake should read 30 to 65 ohms when you read across the pins. You need to measure the resistance at each successive point on the harness because there are 5 connectors. While you are inspecting these plugs, check for corrosion, loose pins, broken wires, and pins not making good contact. Disassemble the front and rear halves of the scooter when you do this.
If all the resistance checks are good up to the controller plug for the brake, you have a bad controller. With that being said, I usually see a bad connection at the multiple points in-between. Sometimes the wires for the brake will melt at the connector at the controller.
Inspect these areas visually, removing the rear cover of the brake/motor/transaxle and the controller. An experienced tech should charge you under 1 hour labor for the diagnosis. You may be able to save some money by checking the obvious areas for unplugged or bad connections first.
The brake will cost about $250, the interface wiring and connectors about $50 and the controller is about $500. For this reason, you should invest in a good tech to diagnose the problem first, before proceeding with any hit and miss do it yourself repairs.
Including a second visit to install the new parts, labor cost should not exceed 2 hours total.
This is a very popular model so you should be able to find an experienced tech in your area.

Testimonial: "Awesome detailed info on how to fis/diagnose the problem."
Has your scooter been sitting idle for several weeks, or has it been connected to the charger 24 hours a days for a long time? If so, the batteries may have become damaged and will give you enough power to turn the controller on but not enough to make the motors run.
If the lights come on and are steady, the manual brake levers are in the drive position and the chair still will not move, I recommend replacing the batteries. If anything else were wrong, either the lights would flash or not come on at all.
I hope this information is helpful to you, good luck!
