Error code 8 means an internal controller error or problem and requires replacement of the controller. If Medicare purchased your scooter then contact a provider to get repaired or you can call a service company such as Roadrunner Mobility at 1-800-467-2668 or Repair Xpress at 1-877-581-3733 and they will bill Medicare for most of the repair costs. Hope this helps

Hi. 8 flashes is a fault code for a motor fault. It will be either worn brushes in the motor or faulty connectors to the motor. This fault code means that there is no circuit through the motor. Probably time to overhaul the motor. Most mobility scooters have plugs and sockets that are really to small to carry the amount of current that they do. Because of this, they sometimes fail.Good luck. Neil.

SOURCE: scooter battery shows full charge but scooter does

Plamont unfortunately that flash code usually means a controller error. The controller is the brains of your scooter. Take the seat off and remove the rear shroud that covers the batteries and motor/gearbox assembly. Check all the wiring connectors for damage or loose connections. After checking the connectors turn the scooter on and see if you still get 8 flashes.
Did Medicare purchase the scooter? If so they will pay for most of the repair costs. You can contact your provider that sold you the scooter or a repair service Repair Xpress@ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 Hope this helps you

The error lite on Buzzaround Lite scooter flashing


5 flash code is the electro magnetic Brake. This is referring to the brake on the motor that can be released by the freewheel lever.

1. place the freewheel lever into the free wheel position. Ensure the scooter is in free wheel and move the scooter forwards and backwards a few times.

2. Place the freewheel lever in drive position, push on scooter to ensure it is in drive and does not move. Turn on key and press the throttle. If you have the same code again, call a technician to check the brake, chances are it needs replaced.

8 flashes will not move


8 flash code on this scooter relates to a motor voltage fault. This means that the correct voltage is not getting to the motor from the power supply. This can either be caused by a bad harness between the power module and the motor or a problem with the motor itself. You need to measure resistance between the motor harness and intermediate motor harness this will determine which component needs to be replaced.

Shoprider power chair won't move and 8 Battery LED Lights are flashing


Code 8: Controller problem. Also, check to see if your gearbox levers are engaged - if you can roll the chair by hand the gearbox is not engaging the motors.

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!

Wrench lite comes on and scooter will not move. I have checked the electric hook ups, all OK. I wiggled the control stick and it move for just a few feet. What could it be?


The wrench light indicates a problem count the number of flashes ie 4 flashes pause 4 flashes indicate a motor problem See my tips on flash codes. Once you get the flash code then you will have to get the chair repaired because there is no self fix for those errors Hope this helps

Controller light is flashing and chair will not move


Sandi Count the number of flashes ie: 4 flashes pause 4 flashes pause etc. This will give you the flash error code and your users manual should tell you what the number of flashes indicate. (for example 3 flashes bad brake) Also check to make sure your scooter is not in freewheel. Turn off the scooter and move the freewheel lever in and out of gear a few times then turn the scooter on and see if you still get the flashes. If you can't figure out what is wrong then contact your provider and ask if they can check it out for you. Hope this Helps
