Question about Schwinn Elite Series Mens Firewire 4.0 29" Mountain Bike - Red

1 Answer

Can't start my schwinn 4.0 electric scooter

We bought it at an auction battery says it's fully charged but I can't figure out how to start it. I have already pulled the battery pack out to confirm that it is connected properly. The battery indicator on the left handle says it's full when the power switch is in the on position. I have tried calling the local scooter store but, they are not open on the weekends apparently. I have a very distraut birthday boy!
I do believe the model is sw-48-black

Not sure if this will help... however an altmeter will allow you to test along your electrics for any faults. You can check at the lights for example and throught the system.

Check your charger with a meter and see if it is putting out the correct voltage for your scooter battery. If it is, you probably need a battery, probably so anyway after 2 years. Good luck!

Battery is charged, however there seems to be more power


Yes a charge fresh, fully charged battery will allow for the scooter to perform at it's peak top speed. Also fresh, fully charged battery will read more than 24v on a voltage meter and this is ok.

Install battery


First make sure the scooter is off.
Unscrew and take off the deck
Unplug and remove the old battery pack
Put the new battery pack in and plug it in, using the same connection as the old batteries pack.
Screw the deck on and your done!
Oh, and make sure you give the battery a good charge(the full charging time). The first charge of a battery is the most important one.

Ezip 150 electric scooter. won't start.


Hi, did you charge the batteries for at least 8 hours? Make sure that your charger has a RED Light When you plug it in, You should see Green light in 4-8 hours depending on the Batteries.
Secondly Your scooter batteries were dead when you got the Scooter, Judging from the fact you didn't get a Charger with it. I would recommend getting a voltmeter and checking the battery voltages. If the voltage is 11-12 volts, then you need new batteries. If this doesn't work check that fuse on the scooter it could be blown.

I charged the battery up on schwinn 180 still want go


Its likely that you just need a new battery. Batteries that are used seasonally have a shorter lifespand, especially if they are stored without being fully charged. You can find a replacement at http://www.batteryinternational.com/electric-scooter-batteries-schwinn-s180.html
