Light is blinking a 7 fault code, what does this fault code mean.

According to the owner's manual for this scooter, flash code 7 indicates a speed control lever fault. This is the lever that you push to go forward and reverse. The lever is attached to a throttle potentiometer to control the speed of the scooter. The lever has to be in the middle or neutral position when the scooter is turned on, if not, you will get a 7 flash code. If the throttle potentiometer is damaged you will also get a flash code 7.
You can try to adjust the throttle pot or try manipulating the neutral position and turning the scooter on and off until the computer sees neutral. This is a potential work around and will cause the scooter to creep forward when running with hands off the throttle lever because there is no zero setting. I usually just replace the throttle potentiometer and this solves the problem. I hope this helps.

How do you fix the 7 beep on go go

Jul 26, 2012 Yup you got a code seven failure code, speed pot malfunction . What pots typically do is that they oxidise. This pot is a variable rersistor that opeates between 0 - 30k ohms. When tuning the pot it shoud ram up and down smoothly. To test for this
You may also need a VOM meter only $9
Disconnect batteries from the scooter. Simply attach the multimeter to the pots terminals, select correct ohms scale and watch the needle. Th needle when turning the pot should move gracefully up to 30k down to zero as the pot dial scooter speed increases. Failure is detected when the needle jumps around, the oxidation causes the pot to connect inteermitently. USE CRC CONTACT Cleaner to get the oxidation out of the pot. The potss are not sealed so there are little holes you can spray into. Use liberal of cleanner.

No forward, only backward

Hi. If the light flashes 7 times, it has a speed controll fault. It might be the throttle lever ( wig wag ), or it might be the speed pot that controls your top speed.
Try moving the throttle lever ends up and down while you are driving the machine. Doing this wont fix it, but it will highlight the problem, if the throttle lever is faulty. Also try moving the speed pot back and forward a few times.
Good luck. Neil.

Hi. 7 beeps is fault code for a faulty speed potentiometer. Might also be a broken wire on the pot or a faulty connector. Most times, a new pot will fix the problem.
Good luck. Neil.

Golden Companion Scooter not moving - diagnosed via owner manual

Hi. Many scooters will display this fault code if the potentiometer is not exactlly centred when you turn on the key. The pot is not always faulty. Some scooters also have a smaller additional pot to controll the speed. If this pot is faulty it will cause the same fault code. Any other switches such as indoor/ outdoor switches. I have had a few machines fitted with curtis controllers where the fault is in the controller.
Check the wiring and plugs and connectors.
Good luck. Neil.
