Question about Electric Mobility Mobility Electric Power Scooter Wheelchair. Heavy Duty
My mom's scooter has no power. When the charger is plugged in an outlet, the light that says "run" on the charger lights up. When the charger is plugged into the outlet then into the scooter the "full" light is on indicating the scooter is fully charged, but the scooter has no power. The lights, horn, blinkers, and motor do not work. What could it be? The charging cord has three prongs where it connects to the scooter. On the inside of the scooter behind the charging outlet, only two wires come out of the outlet. The prong without a wire is the ground, right? Is it just a dead battery? thank you.
This sounds she has tripped her circuit breaker. It works just like the one on your house, when you ask too much of it it suddenly goes 'pop' and seems to be dead.
Looks like you have the same scooter as mine, it should be a little white button on the back of the base. If you follow this link, it will give you a pdf version of the older model pride victory manual, (Mine is a three, they are up to about 10!) See fig. 8 on page 20 and 'Circuit Breaker' on page 21. Also, Page 33 has the troubleshooting info. Hope this helps.

Hi. Most chargers should be connected to the scooter first before plugging into the wall socket. The charger senses the battery voltage to regulate itself. Your other answer suggested the circuit breaker, and this might be correct. Sone times the circuit breaker blowing can mean there is other faults such as a faulty motor. Many mobility scooters have plugs and sockets on the battery leads, and most are too light to carry the high currents. I have removed these from many machines and connected the leads straight to the batteries.
The third pin in the charger plug is to disable the controller in the scooter while the charger is connected.Good luck. Neil.

Check the freewheel lever. When it is in the neutral position, its like a car in neutral gear. The lights will go on but nothing will happen when you touch the accelerator. The freewheel lever is at the back of the scooter, near the wheels. I hope that is what the problem is as it is the easiest and fastest problem to fix.
