Hi. This sounds difficult. I have had a few scooters move slowly forward or in reverse, but not both. Normally if the speed pot ( wig wag ) is not exactly in the central position, they can do this.
It is possible for a scooter to have your problem, if the speed lever is binding or rubbing on the housing. Normally the lever is returned to the middle by a spring around the speed pot shaft. If this spring is loose or broken, then this could also cause the problem. Sometimes a small spot of oil or grease will help.
To check the speed lever is in the middle, slowly move the lever for forward untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Now release the lever and slowly pull it for reverse untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Make sure that the speed lever moves the same amount for forward as it does for reverse. If not adjust it with the key off.
If you get the machine to drive properly, then change the controller to see if it is OK.
As for the beeping, a lot of machines will go into an error mode if the speed lever is not in the central position when you turn the key on. This is a safety precausion.
Good luck. Neil.

Can I bypass the speed pot


No, the controller checks the resistance of the combination of the speed and throttle pots on startup.

What does the 7 beep code mean on my Pride Victory 10 scooter mean when I turn the key on ?


This is a speed pot or throttle control problem (wig-wag) have you had some speed issues with the scooter before this happened, if so the wig-wag needs replacing. Make sure it is in the centre position at rest and switch the scooter on again.

How to stop a continuing beep on my Cordoba scooter when I turn the key on? The scooter don't move at all.


Hi Mag,
I have this steps that might help you with beeping sound on your Scooter. Hope it helps.

UNIT LIGHTS UP/HORN WORKS BUT UNIT WILL NOT MOVE
Possible Cause:
  • This often occurs when the scooter is in free wheel mode and is not in drive mode. Re-Engage the free wheel lever which is located down near the rear wheels (normally a yellow or red lever).
  • If you hear a beeping noise, the beeping you hear is a fault beep indicating the scooter main control box has detected a problem. Contact your dealer who can diagnose the beep code.
  • Check batteries with load tester - If either battery drops more than 1 volt under a load, the battery(s) are bad. Replace "both" batteries.

I also find these additional steps on how to know beep alarm indicators:

This main control box has a self-diagnostics feature & cannot be tested with a volt meter. When a
problem is present the main control box will diagnose the fault, prohibit the scooter from being driven
and sound an alert beep. Each alert beep indicates a different issue which helps to determining the
problem by narrowing the fault into one of a few main areas of the scooter. Reference this information
below for the alert beep indications.

Very Rapid beep- Batteries are low. Charge & test batteries.
Medium Fast beep- Motor/brake wiring fault. Free wheel lever disengaged.
Solid beep- The charger is plugged into the scooter (some models may vary).
Very Slow beep- The throttle pot was not at center when you turned the unit on. Throttle pot off
center or wiring (yellow & orange wires) fault.

Hi my scooter will drive in reverse on its own at all kinds of speeds if u leave the key on and is slow in forward only it will only stop in reverse if you turn of key or disconnect the forward or reverse...


Hi tandseaster,
I have owned my own business for 3 years and have been working on scooters and powerchairs for 15 years. I know exactly what the problem is. I can almost tell you what kind of scooter you have. In the future give as much info about the scooter as possible.
Your problem is the throttle pot or somtime called the engager.
You can do one of two things. 1. Open the faceplate to your tiller. look for a lock nut on the throttle pot. loosen it, on the bottom of the pot is a slot for a flat tip screwdriver. Take the key out before you start this procedure. You can turn the screw slot on the pot a little at a time, one way then the other. Turn the key back on, turn the speed pot to lowest speed so the scooter won't take off on you. Once you align the throttle pot to neutral tighten the lock nut. The easiest way to fix your problem is:
2. Replace the throttle pot.
Your problem will be fixed.

Good Luck
Tim

Hi. 7 beeps is fault code for a faulty speed potentiometer. Might also be a broken wire on the pot or a faulty connector. Most times, a new pot will fix the problem.
Good luck. Neil.

Mayfair freerider mobility scooter - keeps losing power, especially on slow speed


ok, sounds like the speed pot,

Can you move the throttle lever up and down, try going along at a constant speed (losing power ?) then move the lever up & down ?

does it improve response ? if so replace the speed pot.

GeWiz.
