Hi. Different brands of controllers give different fault codes.If this is a dynamic controller, 9 flashes is the code for a faulty controller. This does not always mean that the controller is actually at fault.
It could be a burn't out brake solenoid, that now has a different resistance through the solenoid coil.
You mention the middle speed green light is flashing, normally on dynamic controllers, it is the most left battery level LED that flashes. You might have a different controller.
Have a look under the panels and let us know what controller your machine has.
You could try the agents, and see if they can tell you what the problem is.
Good luck. Neil.

John count the number of flashes by the green light and it will be the fault code indicating the problem Your owners manual should list the fault codes to be able to determine what the problem is. Ie 4 blinks pause 4 blinks pause. The clicking you hear is the electric brakes being engaged. Hope this helps

I have a Golden Companion II, all power comes on:light, battery meter and horn but it won't move when I press the throttle. I do hear the click from the brake but it won't move forward or reverse. If its...


Tony Check the freewheel lever Make sure that the scooter can't be pushed easily. If you can push it then its in freewheel. Now Tony you could have a problem with the brake itself. There is a small micro switch on the brake that engages and disengages when you move the freewheel lever. If you can get a close look at it make sure that it still looks like its operating its a mechanical mech activated by the lever on the brake. If it looks ok and you can get the scooter in or out of freewheeling (the rear wheels lock and unlock) then it could be a throttle pot problem or a speed control pot problem. Fortunately you can't bypass the throttle or speed pot. You will have to get these checked by a tech either with your provider or a service company that has techs around your area. I'm sorry I couldn't give you a quick fix but scooters are more difficult to troubleshoot because of all the different componets necessary to make it go. Good Luck Hope this helps

Suspect the charger is shot on a seldom used like new Companion II. The batteries are at 3 volts but the charger red light wont illuminate when plugged in. Green light comes on, but not the red. I did see...


MStrong The charger will not charge batteries that are reading that low Replace the batteries and try the charger again. Remember to always charge before use and never charge longer than 12-16 hours. Get into the habit of charging overnite on scooters used everyday and once a week on seldomly used scooters always sore the scooter fully charged and if storing for a longer time remove the batteries and store fully charged. ope this helps you

Hi. Most speed problems on scooters, can be the throttle pot ( wig wag ), or the motor brushes.
Also check all battery lead connectors, and the motor lead connectors.
While you are driving along, try moving the speed lever slightly up and down, not in and out as you normally do. If the speed changes, it is probably a faulty pot.
Do you have a high/low switch, or an indoor/outdoor switch that changes the speed? These sometimes cause speed changes. You can fit a new switch or by-pass the switch, and have it on high all the time.
Good luck. Neil.

Hi. 5 flashes on some scooters is the fault code for brake coil open circuit. This usually means that the free-wheel lever is in the wrong position.
Someone might have moved the levers so that they could push the scooters, and forgot to put the levers back to the correct position.
This fault code can also mean that the solenoid coil is faulty, but 9 times out of 10, it is the lever in the wrong position.
Good luck. Neil.
