Ok, now can you try another charger ?

It could be the batteries have decided to call it a day.

Normally the back panel is held dowb by velco,

Batteries wont charge


You would need a voltmeter to check the charger in order to see if it is charging the batteries. New batteries if purchased from a reputable outfit will have a nominal charge and should work initially in order to test the scooter. Depending on the model check for blown fuses and disconnected wires on the battery boxes, connections, plugs and charging circuits including the wall outlet. The display on the scooter will indicate the state of charge and the key switch should work and give an initial indication that the scooter is on. If you provide make and model I can respond with more specific information.

Electrical shuts off or slows down when riding


You may need to replace the battery even though it is charging. It sounds like a bad battery or the motor may be overloaded.

My Mother had me pick up a Mega Motion 111 Travel PAL WITH LESS THAN 40 HOURS USAGE. However, it sat idle for a year and the batteries register stone red dead zero. Anyway, I followed the directions cover...


Sounds to me that all the right checks have been made...
Heres a tech Tip ,9/10 battery chargers cannot bring up a pair of dead battery's.In our case Larry thats whats happening here.There isnt enough power in the batterys to turn your charger on.
Here are some steps in testing your charger ..
1) Take the two batterys out of the scooter
2) Find your self a battery charger that you can set at a trickle charge ,this setting charges at a very low voltage
3) Trickle charge each battery to a least 50%
4) Install the batterys back into the scooter
5) Plug in your charger
Now in doing this your charger should kick on for a while ,dont worry if it shuts off .The batterys being bad is the reason for it shutting off ,we are just testing to see if your charger is working.

This should keep you out of the shop.good luck

Scooter's horn works but the battery is not charging when plugged in.


hi, right first of all, check the charger, check the fuse located in the charger if fitted, best way to test it is to try it on another scooter.

Now if youre sure the charger is working ok look at the charger socket is it a loose fitting if so wiggle it about gently, does the charger accept it charging ? is there a charging light on the scooter ? if so does it change colour when inserted , if not bad charger or charger fitting ? now if you have a multimeter , remove the seat and the cover under that , mind how you do this as it easily to hurt your back, show now you can see the batteries , check the leads to the batteries, have they come loose, now using the meter put a prode on a red terminal and the other lead on the other battery black terminal, now change terminal if no reading until you get about 20 to 25 volts , now inserted the battery charger , has the voltage changed or watch as it will start to rise , give it 20 minutes or so and if nothing changed , it pointing at your charger as having a fault ,even if the batteries are no good it will see show some output, now if the voltage measured on the batteries is lower than 18 Volts depending on scooter it will never move but the horn will still work as that requires only 12V.

Please leave feedback if this helps

My mother's scooter will not charge. The unit has been plugged in for over 24 hours with no change to the charged indicators. The horn works but the unit is not charging.


The horn requires very little energy to operate, so that is not a good indicator. Check all the wire connections. Take out the battery from the case and with a flashlight, check the terminals where the battery makes contact with the post of the unit. Carbon and oxidation can build up on these terminals very quickly if the scooter is used outside. Use a very fine sand paper to lightly remove this residue without removing the zinc plating then wipe with a clean cloth.

I have a Pride Legnd..the scooter started loseing speed, I would adj the speed pot and the unit would stop, adjust back down and unit would run, but slow. I left the speed speed controller alone and unit...


hi, first you need to check the connections to the batteries then to the motor controller, and don't dismiss the speed pot, disconnect the speed pot and try a normal 5K pot inplace of it, if the scooters responds you find the problem just a case of getting the right speed pot. Check the freewheel switch, normally it located on the motor side.
