If only one wheel turns then it sounds like the transaxle is bad. They are a sealed unit and cost around $1000.

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.

check the wiring from the batteries as a wire could have come loose.

SOURCE: how do i remove the pride legend classic xl8 seat

hi, be careful here as it can make your back ache,
now there is a lever to the right of the seat, pull it up towards you and
turn your seat 90 anticlockwise, so the seats not facing the control panel, at right angles, you should now be able to lift the seat , take great care here if you have back problems in the past as some seats are quite heavy.

MY PRIDE CELEBRITY XL SCOOTER JUST STOPPED IT IS IN FREE WHEEL AND WONT ENGAGE IN TO GEAR


Sounds like a blown transaxle. If the scooter has had heavy use or a heavy rider this would not be uncommon after 3-5 years of use.

The kids drove my Pride Legend XL through a puddle. I doesn't go anymore. I need a technical Reference Manual with schematics. I could fix it myself or......? Batteries are fully charged. No...


I had a similar problem with my Pride Legend XL when I drove it
through a puddle accidently and some water splashed up underneath
the motor controller. It would buck or go then stoo without any warning
as the electric brake was applied. Had to take the seat off and use a
hair dryer on the controller connections to dry them out. It doesn't
seem to take much water to make these inoperative. After thoroughly
dried out with a hair dryer..no more problems like that with it.

My dad has a pride celebrity xl scooter and keeps getting a noise similar to a rubbing noise from rear right wheel while driving, it sounds once for every rotation of the wheel, iv checked that nothing is...


The noise you are describing usually comes from the trans-axle and not from the motor/brake. Motor brake noise is usually continuous. Sounds like the trans-axle may be slightly bent on the right or rubbing internally. The easiest way to identify this is to block up the scooter and remove the rear cover. Look and listen to all the drivetrain components while the scooter is blocked up and running. If you hear rubbing at the end shaft as you describe you can try the following:
Loosen the trans-axle metal mounts that clamp the rubber sleeves over the trans-axle
Spray the rubber sleeves with silicone.
Re-torque the clamps after checking the alignment.
An overtightened or misaligned clamp can sometimes cause noise.
The brake/motor/transaxle has a prorated three year warranty so you should go through a Pride dealer for warranty repairs.
Sometimes you can get a noisy wheel on the key and key-way of the trans-axle shaft. It may be worthwhile to pull both rear wheels lubricate the shaft key-ways and keys and re-install the wheels. This can sometimes quiet a multitude of noises from the trans-axle. Depending on the age of the scooter you can do nothing, replace the brake/motor/transaxle parts individually, replace the complete assembly. I like to replace the entire assembly under warranty so there are no future problems. The rest of the repair depends on your insurance coverage or budget. Hope this helps.
