Hi. I have had this fault on a few machines, but its not always the same problem.
When scooter motors have done a lot of work, they develope a build up of carbon dust from the brushes. This dust can cause a short or the commutator might be slightly out of round, causing the brushes to vibrate or bounce. The electronic controller is always monitoring the speed of the armature, and if this signal is interupted, the the controller can shut down the motor. Test the motor with a multi-meter on OHM's, from one of the brushes to the frame of the motor. If there is no circuit, then there is no build up of carbon. If there is a circuit, then you might need to overhaul the motor.

Also check the battery lead connectors, and the motor lead connectors. I have had to remove many of these for bad connections. Really bad connections will have burnt or melted the plastic housings.
Good luck. Neil.

Hi we have just bought a Disability scooter and when using the battery indicator is moving from right to left - full charge to low charge is this normal?


Yes that is normal. As you move, the meter shows the amount of voltage being drawn down. If it drops too low or doesn't recover to the full right side, its a clue that it needs charged or the batteries are too low and should be replaced.

Ultralite 480 lacks power, new batteries fitted 5 months ago, shows fully charged, dips down when accelerator lever pressed but stays in green area


The battery lights dropping down while the scooter is in motion is normal; the motors are drawing current from the batteries which is going to drop the battery level slightly. However, if you see the battery indicator lights dropping off steadily while the scooter is in motion (1 bar every few minues or seconds) this can indicate a battery problem. It sounds like this is normal operation!
Good luck!

Scooter stops intermittenly


Hi. Does the machine stop suddenly, or does it slowly stop as it normally would? Does this happen on hills or slopes?
A lot of scooters have a self-resetting circuit breaker connected to the battery leads. If the machine draws to much current ( amps ) then the circuit breaker trips out. After a few minutes the circuit breaker will reset and you can continue.
This could mean that the circuit breaker is faulty or that the motor is drawing to much current, or is burnt out.
Some machines have a very light duty circuit breaker, and these can trip out often. I have changed many of these circuit breakers for this reason.
Check all your battery leads are secure and tight.
If it is still a problem, get a serviceman to check the motor current is what it should be.
Good luck. Neil.

Battery indicator keeps fluctuating to 4hrs to 6hrs back to 4hrs then 8hrs every 5 mins or so i have acer A0532H with windows 7


first of all let me ask how old is the battery, if it`s new-discharge the battery until pc shuts down itself because of low battery, remove the battery , unplug AC charger from laptop, wait for 5 minutes, then hold power button for 5 full seconds, wait another 5 minutes, then put battery and ac charger on , don`t turn on laptop yet, wait until battery indicator shows that battery fully charged, then remove AC charger, and turn on laptop. P.S. you can try this on old battery too, but usually worthless, because old batteries are not recognizable by system currectly ..

I have a pride victory xl8. Problem - was running


All scooters have a protection system built in to prevent burning up the motor, and the user, should the scooter overheat. It sounds like yours overheated. If the temp. outside was warm to hot, and your weight is near the weight limit for the scooter, and you are taxing the motors over a hill, or unstable terrain, then the scooter goes into "limp home mode", or just enough to get you a bit aways, and then it will turn off. After a few minutes to cool off, it will go again, but shut down fairly quickly because it takes a spell to let the whole transaxle-motor assembly to get cool.

Check your weight, and anything else you may be carrying with you on the scooter. Check the terrain, and incline you are going against. Throttle down for all these occassions. If you overloaded the system at some point, then you may have overheated the brushes. Remove them (2) with a standard screwdriver and see if the copper coil is still flexible and springy. If not, replace it/them.

The damage may already be done, so it may need a new motor/transaxle assembly. An expensive proposition I'm afraid.
