SOURCE: my friend has a rascal electric wheelchair he rode

Hi. This type of fault can be caused by a few different problems. Is the machine flashing any fault codes?

Faults could be a stuck brush in the motor, Free-wheel lever in the wrong position, faulty motor or battery connectors, loose battery terminals, jambed brake solenoid.
Hope this helps. Neil.

The older control boards can be repaired. Email me, the rebuilder is the only ones with real prints, because they used to work for Curtis. they warranty their work and I have never had one of the rebuilds fail. new those controllers were$480, rebuild maybe half of that but they warranty it longer than original. So another option is up dating the old system but that is like $800, the question just came up with a customer last week. Scooter Doctor App

I have a Rascal 200..was working after you go forward and let go of the throttle. goes in reverse itself. .is there a throttle adjustment?

I had a similar problem on my Pride Legend scooter, it would
creep back in reverse if you let go of the throttle. The FWD/REV spring tensioned throttle pot inside was "off center"causing it to activate in reverse when it should have stayed put with the electric brake energized.
I had to replace the throttle pot assembly. Not sure if yours
is similar, but I would suspect it might be.

Sometimes my electric mobility scooter acts as though it's dead - but, the batteries are fully charged and the horn will work. Other times, it acts perfectly normal. The downside is, it's left

okay now this is most likely a loose connection
does the rear axle come away from the main frame ? if so check the connectors there clean gently,,,,
Now check the battery connections does the battery pack come away from the scooter if so again check the connections here , clean and make sure connections are good.

HELP ! My Rascal joystick has option to raise & lower height of chair; I raised it to get in my freezer and now it will not lower. When it is in the RAISED position, the speed is less than a ONE a

This device either is hydraulically operated or operates use a motor and jacking screw, which is much more common. Take the seat off the jacking post. Put a piece of wood on the top where the seat was mounted. It should make the same kind of motor noise going down as it makes going up. If it never made noise going down it probably because its a hydraulic system so the down button activates a valve opening a hydraulic line allowing fluid to flow out of the chamber holding the piston up that your chair is mounted on. If it did make the same kind of noise going down, its a screw jack type mechanism. In either case hit the top of the wood once with moderate force. I like using a 5 pound hammer. I call it my master calibration tool. Make sure you strike the top of the wood piece straight down in order to avoid bending things. Try operating it now sometimes things get stuck when moved to their limit. So push the reverse button, then tap the piston down. You can check to see it the motor is getting voltage you will need a 24v circuit tester

I would like to see pictures of his devise. Any tag or stickers with who made it, model number?

I have a Rascal Turnabout power chair and most of the time when I try to take off or turn it will not move and the lights start flashing.They will flash 3 times then slight delay and flash 4 times...

The Rascal Turnabout model 312 power chair has VR2 electronics made by Penny and Giles Drive Technology. The VR2 electronics will give you a flash code to indicate the problem with the power chair.
Based on what you are describing, you have a right motor fault.
This means there is a problem in the motor, the wiring, or the connections to the motor.

Let's take each of these in turn.
To make the checks on the various components, you need to remove the seating system.
Unplug the joystick cable leading to the base.
Remove the seating system from the base using the release lever and 1 or 2 people to lift it off the seat post and onto the ground.
Remove the cover from the base.
Check all the electrical connections in the base and make sure they are tight and pushed together making good contact.
Your power problem may be related to the batteries so you can check them while you are in the base. If your 2, U-1 batteries are more than 1 year old and test bad or weak replace them with new batteries. You can have them tested where you buy new ones or find someone with a load tester and you can test them yourself.
If all the electrical connections are tight, or if one of the connections was loose and the contact had backed out of the connector, fix it and you are home free. Test by scooting the seating system over on the floor and plugging in the joystick to test.
If you still have a fault code, find the wiring leading to the right motor. ( You should also check the left motor while you're under the hood because sometimes with mid wheel drive chairs the fault code is reversed when the motors are plugged in the controller). If you have a voltmeter, you can check out the motor. Unplug the motor at the connector. These motors may have 2 different style plugs that will release when you press the plastic lever and wiggle the plug out. Check it at the controller for good contact.
The plug should have 2 large wires for the motor and 2 smaller wires for the brake. The brake should read between 40 to 60 ohms and the motor should read between 0 and 1.5 ohms. If either of these is out of factory spec, replace the motor/brake assembly. If the gearbox is noisy or leaking, replace the motor/brake/gearbox assembly.
With that being said, you need to check and replace the batteries first if they are weak or bad.
If you are handy or know a good mechanic the assembly can be changed in 2 hours including testing and diagnosis,removal and replacement of the assembly.
You need to call Electric Mobility to get the replacement parts 1-800-MOBILITY. Hope this helps.
