Hi. Are there other faults as well? Maybe you should get another quote from a different technician, or ask him if he has any second hand parts available.
If you use it, and you cant control it, you end up down a bank or under a bus.
What brand and model is it?
Sometimes the brake disc in the brake unit splits and allows the machine roll on. Sometimes the brake lever has had a bump, and just needs to be pushed back into place properly.
Try contacting the authorised service people for this scooter, and get some prices from them. Good luck. Neil.

Stopped going when free wheel lever accidently pushed forward. Put back. Still wont start.


Check for error codes. Move free wheel lever in and out a few times in case the brake micro switch is not making correctly.
Check speed control is not turned down low.

Scooter won't move when forward/reverse engaged.


From:

Engage the freewheel lever
- allows you to operate the mobility equipment with the standard controls.
Disengage the freewheel lever - This unlocks the unit and allows the wheels to spin freely. You can easy push the equipment without power. This is especially helpful if you run out of battery power and need assistance.

User needs to use left hand for forward and reverse and would like wires switched


hi, you need to expose the throttle pot that is the pot attached to the lever you move to go forward or backwards, normally it a top cover known as the tiller cover, once you done that you see the throttle pot has three legs with coloured wires attached now you need to crossover the outside wires, not the centre one, by doing this you're are moving the reserve to the right hand side and the forward to the left hand side.

if you require more assistance then please let me know..

that's it,
regards

please give me feedback

Scooter won't move


Things to check: Drive/Free wheeling switch, brake release lever (this activates an internal micro-switch that enable power to the drive system, battery box connectors (condition of contacts - corroded, missing, loose. etc.); main control cable (corrosion. lose or missing pins, etc). If all these are OK, could be controller or drive control potentiometers (speed, forward, backward) on the handle-bar (tiller).
Good luck!

From willaston auto electrics adelaide , customer brouht in a pride pathfinder 4 wheeler no forward or reverse movement, has power to volt gauge, horn works, any suggestions appreciated


neville the problem could be numerous things but lets try the simple ones first. a bad throttle pot or speed control pot can cause that problem. Both of those are located in the tiller console and that has to be removed to test them. You can ohms check both with power off and you can voltage check them with power on. You should get a smoth change in resistance as you turn th speed pot and as you move the throttle forward and reverse with power off. alsdo chech the connections in the tiller and remove the seat and battery cover and check the connections at the rear of the scooter sometimes just moving the wires can get it moving again but that won't help you locate the problem if you can't isolate the bad connection or bad wire. Scooters are tough to repair because of the many connectors that they have and the cables runnig front to rear that can cause problems especially with Pride scooters Good Luck I know I didn't give you much but I'm not fond of working on scooters Hope this Helps

Hi. How many beeps between pauses? This is a fault code.
A couple of problems might cause this fault. Is your free-wheel lever in the correct place. These levers operate a switch, that tells the controller that the brake is disabled, this stops the controller from driving the scooter with out brakes.

Might also be caused by a stuck brush in the motor. This is usually caused by the caps that hold the brushes in, not being tight enough. Check the brushes, make sure they slide in and out smoothly, retighten the caps. Be carefull because these caps can crack easily.
Good luck. Neil.

My troy bilt won't go in neutral


The Junior tiller does not have a neutral selection. In order to free wheel the tiller you have to remove the pins that go thru the wheel rim hubs and then it will roll without starting it. Hopefully the rims are not rusted to the wheel shaft.
