    Was the battery fully charged before you used it? You need to ensure that the battery is completely charged or it will hold an increasingly small charge as time goes by. Is the battery for the correct model? It may not have the same horsepower your prior battery had, which is why it's not going fast...it might not have the same strength.

Hi. Did the machine used to operate properly in the past? Sometimes previous owners or technicians have changed the programme for owners for different uses. What you describe sounds like a faulty throttle pot ( Wig Wag ). I have changed many throttle pots for this reason.
Also check battery and motor connectors.
Do you have another switch on the machine for controlling the speed, such as an indoor/outdoor switch? Good luck. Neil.

My golden companion 2 Gc 321 goes forward when i push reverse and goes reverse when i push forward


Sounds like the motor cables are in reverse at the controller. Check that the red is in the positive and the black wire is in the negative on the controller.

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

My scooter is too slow,the battery charges,but it only drives at very slow speed,while going backwards it goes fast.Can you tell me what to do?


I have owned my own business for 3 years and have been working on scooters and powerchairs for 15 years. In the future give as much info about the scooter as possible.
1. Replace the throttle pot and or the speed pot.
2. Sometimes even batteries that take a charge are not strong enough to run the scooter. Have them load tested at an auto parts store to make sure. If you have bad batteries that will make you scooter do what you say it's doing. Don't forget your reverse speed is only 1/2 as fast as the forward speed on all scooters.

Good Luck

I have a Lyra 4. The battery is fully charged. It was going well on the lowest setting but it doesn't move on that any more and I have to put it very high to get it to go. What is wrong?


Let me take a shot at this, batteries are fully charged ,and it wont move at all in the slow settings.I would check for looseness in your throttle ,make sure its responding correctly when you want to go forward and reverse .second i would check your speed knob make sure its not loss or coming off, i have dealt with many problems like this one in the past and the knob was just lose and needed tighten ,and if everything checks out you are more likely dealing with a bad speed pot,which would be that knob you turn your speed up with.that would cause you not to move in your slow settings.

good luck hope i was of some help.

Go Go Scooter travels in reverse, but when going forward it comes to an abrupt stop every few seconds. Everything else appears to work normally. Any ideas?


csr4 Well it could be the throttle pot or the speed control pot My leanings is toward the throttle pot since it works in reverse with the speed pot not being changed but not forward. when you are just changing the position of the throttle to forward thereby changing the pot wiper and getting the error. Contact Pride about the problem at 1-800-800-8586 and ask for Tech support for scooters and explain your problem to them. I hope this helps
