Hi. Could be a couple of faults. The throttle pot ( Wig Wag ) could be worn. While you are driving the machine, try moving the ends of the lever up or down slowly, ( not in and out as you usually do for driving ), and see if that makes the speed vary.
Another problem could be faulty battery or motor connectors. I have replaced or removed many battery connectors because of this. Also check battery or motor wirs where they connect to the controller.
If you feel unsure about checking the connectors, get a good serviceman to do it for you. Good luck. Neil.

Hi, I have obtained a scooter that is 4yrs old but unused and am having problems getting it to go. It is a Prestige Explorer 6 and I have charged the batteries which seem to hold a charge and show full on...

Hello, it sounds like you may have a few issues going with this scooter. Due to the age of the scooter, my first guess is the batteries. It sounds like there is enough power for the auxilliary systmes but not enough to power the scooter. Sometimes when a scooter sits for a while the gel inside the batteries will oxidize and prevent then from taking a full charge. The charger registers a full charge, but instead of being full of power, the batteries are full of crud and need to be replaced. Take the batteies to Auto Zone or somplace that can test them for free with a volt meter to ensure they are at the manufacturer's guidelines; probably 12 v, 33 amp.

If the batteries are good, the freewheel is in drive and the scooter still won't move, it may be a wiring problem or the motors may have siezed up. Check the wiring connecting from the accelerator/wigwag/controller to the motor to make sure they are talking to each other. If that is OK, the motors may have rusted or siezed up on the inside from sitting so long, which may be the reason why the scooter can't be pushed- the axle is locked up.

I hope this information is helpful to you- good luck!

My go go elite scooter suddenly dies seems to happen on the slow speed the control panel seems warm.

You might be over the weight capacity for this little scooter. When you overload it, the controller senses and overheating and slows the scooter down to prevent burning up the electrical system. When it has cooled, it will operate normally again. If you aren't overloading it, or if the previous owner did in case it's used, then the PC board needs to be replaced which is located inside the top of the tiller cover and the speed pot conects to this board. They aren't too expensive; about $30.00 from a Pride dealer. Take the shroud covering the tiller assembly apart by removing the screws that hold the clamshell cover together. Take the knob off the speed control and you will see an electronics board with several snap-on connections to it. This is what gets replaced.

Sounds like you have a bad throttle pot. You`ll need to check the resistance on it or take it to a dealer.
