SOURCE: my pride IV scooter will not start I get a click

An 8-flash code indicates that the controller has shot craps. The controller is located under the shroud beneath the seat by the batteries and it controls all of the power and automatic functions of the scooter. They are damaged most often by water infiltration like running through deep puddles, etc. or by over-amping the scooter by driving it through unstable terrain like sand, mud, wet grass. There's no fix for it but a replacement and it's pricey...several hundred dollars.

SOURCE: My wife's Pride Legend scooter

There a several solutions to this problem and all involve removing the seat and rear cover of the drivetrain. The brake and lever arm of the brake is located on the end of the black motor. Moving the brake lever up and down places the motor in freewheel or locks the motor/brake. There is a connecting rod from the brake lever to a ball that can be pulled up or down where it exits the back cover.
The connecting rod and brake lever may be bent making it difficult to work. Gently bend it back into alignment if you can. Be careful not to damage the brake and brake lever. The rod is easily reshaped. There is also a chance that the mechanism is binding and rusted or loose. You should be able to work the rod easily. See if you can move the lever right at the brake.
The more likely culprit is an overheated seized brake with the only solution replacing the brake. I have also seen the hexagon shaped nut which is secured by 2 set screws onto the motor shaft inside the brake housing come off. The set screws get loose and the nut gets lodged in the brake. Both of these solutions requires removing the brake with some allen wrenches after noting its position on the motor shaft. Hope this helps.

Why won't my pride legend start?


The legend has a Curtis controller. The flash codes you provided points the problem to a faulty throttle pot. If a new throttle does not fix the issue, then your problem is the controller itself.

Sundancer scooter flashing wigwag code


The wig-wag can be tested with an ohm or multimeter. The wigwag plug must be disconnected in the tiller console or at the split-frame connector. Speed dial must be turned up all the way. Measure the wigwag with the ohm meter from the outer most tabs. It should read 5,000 ohms +/- 5%. Then measure center tab to either outer tab. When in "neutral" position it should read 2,500 ohms +/- 10%. If the wigwag is in tolerance I would have the batteries and battery harnesses checked next. Each battery should be charged and tested by a battery shop. These should be 12volt 18-35amp hour batteries.
If the batteries test fine then you have a wiring issue where a loose or corroded wire is dropping voltage under load. Sometimes these types of "bad" connections will cause the wire/connector to become warm or even discolor the connector/wire.
Best regards.

I have a legend pride four wheel electric scooter. It does not run anymore. We checked the batteries and they are good and we charged them. We also went through all of the wiring and made sure the...


Hi. Is the machine display any fault codes, ( flashing battery light)? Is the free-wheel lever in the correct place, Move it in and back again and try it. It is possible that you have a stuck brush in the motor. Get a multi meter and check the resistance through the motor. Check that the brake unit is releasing properly.
If one of the battery lights is flashing, count the flashes and let us know what the pattern is, and we can tell you what it means. Good luck. Neil.

The scooter will just stop and then start right back up. It has new batteries.


Most likely some intermittant fault condition is happening and the controller is cutting out. This could be overheating of the controller, a loose or corroded connection to battery, controller, control panel or motor, over-current in the motor or battery under-voltage. It may need someone to go over the wiring and connectors and checking everything is sound.
