If you remove the wheel can you spin the gear cluster forward with no resistance? Does it ratchet when spun backward? If yes and no, the hub is shot.

Scooter beeps and won't go. Gear doesn't click into "engaged" mode sometimes. It seems to slip between "engaged" and "freewheel".

sounds to me like the starter solenoid that's what I would replce first , then look towards new battery's if that fails .

Go Go scooter wont engage gears

Try first without power to switch from freewheel to engaged. Its usually a small lever on the back by the wheels. If the scooter can be moved by hand its in freewheel. Switch the lever then move the scooter slightly til you hear it click in. They don't have brakes, They are supposed to live in gear and then are either moving or not. :) Hope this helps.

I have a go go elite traveller plus , the battery pack will not lift off my scooter it seems to be stuck , i need to replace the batteries

The manual for this scooter is at
The closest info I can find is page 14. MOVING AND TRANSPORTING YOUR Easy Travel Elite
6.1. Moving Your Easy Travel Elite in Freewheel Mode when unfolded:
The Freewheel switch (Fig. 1/17) is used for releasing the brake and moving the Easy Travel Elite without operating the motor. Before activating, make sure your Easy Travel Elite is switched on. Turn Freewheel switch to the "freewheel" position and push or pull the Easy Travel Elite manually.
NOTE: The Freewheel mode can only be activated after the battery is in place and the power switch (Fig.9/1) is turned on. Doing otherwise will cause a fault situation indicated by rapid flashing of the Indicator light (Fig. 9/4). See section 4.2.
WARNING: The Freewheel switch should never be engaged on a slope.
CAUTION: The seat back must remain in the upright position.

They seem to assume removal is obvious, I would check any connections from battery to scooter are pulled out and that freewheel mode is not engaged.

How to engage freewheel mode

Push down freewheel levers behind each wheel. Rock the chair back and forth if the levers are difficult to move.

Freewheel not locking in

The pawls (small spring activated plates) inside the freewheel body are stuck down and cannot spring back up to engage the gear body.

This is usually caused by oxidation and moisture.

This is a long term issue, the freewheel really should be replaced. It may randomly work if you can get a lubricant to penetrate into body, but this is normally a short term solution.

Most freewheels from Sram or Sunrace will run about $20.00.

LED Flashes 5 times - Brake in freewheel or brake connection problem. How can I fix this?

Brake in freewheel means that your scooter is not fully in gear, it must be 'set in the engaged (Fully forward) position.' See page 24 of the manual for your model, (Link below to the pdf if you need it) but if its anything like mine it just didn't click in properly. Roll it back and forward a few inches, and it should 'click' like the seat in the car when you change its position. If freewheel is not the problem (if it can't be rolled and is definately in gear) check all plugs and cords are tight in sockets, you may have a brakes problem. In this event it must be looked at by an expert. Stay safe!
Hope this helps:)

Craftsman 20HP , can't stop freewheeling,

Sounds like your problem is the key in your rear wheel is missing or sheared, you have to remove the wheel @ tire assembly ,pull rubber cap off then clip to remove if one of the keys is sheared or gone it will go into gear and the brake will work ,but they will only stop the shaft without the key it will not move or brake becuase its not attached if you know what I mean.
