Question about Health & Beauty

1 Answer

My daughters scooter beeps when the key is turned on and will not move either direction. She has to turn the key off and on several times before she can get it to run correctly. Her scooter is less than a year old, the batteries have been replaced recently. I tried to move the free-wheel lever back and forth several times and that didn't help either. She is away at College and needs to get this problem solved quickly..her scooter gets her to her classes, and she has M.D.

Gordon The scooter should be still under warranty if it is less than a year old. Contact the provider where you got the scooter and ask them to come repair it. If they refuse then contact the manufacturer and report a warranty repair needed. If Medicare or Medicaid purchased the scooter they will pay for most of the repair cost if the scooter is out of warranty. You can contact a service such as Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 and ask for a tech to repair the scooter Hopes this helps and God bless your Daughter

Scooter won't move when forward/reverse engaged.


From:

http://mobility123.com/help-fix-mobility-scooter-powerchair/


Engage the freewheel lever
- allows you to operate the mobility equipment with the standard controls.
Disengage the freewheel lever - This unlocks the unit and allows the wheels to spin freely. You can easy push the equipment without power. This is especially helpful if you run out of battery power and need assistance.

How to stop a continuing beep on my Cordoba scooter when I turn the key on? The scooter don't move at all.


Hi Mag,
I have this steps that might help you with beeping sound on your Scooter. Hope it helps.

UNIT LIGHTS UP/HORN WORKS BUT UNIT WILL NOT MOVE
Possible Cause:
  • This often occurs when the scooter is in free wheel mode and is not in drive mode. Re-Engage the free wheel lever which is located down near the rear wheels (normally a yellow or red lever).
  • If you hear a beeping noise, the beeping you hear is a fault beep indicating the scooter main control box has detected a problem. Contact your dealer who can diagnose the beep code.
  • Check batteries with load tester - If either battery drops more than 1 volt under a load, the battery(s) are bad. Replace "both" batteries.

I also find these additional steps on how to know beep alarm indicators:

This main control box has a self-diagnostics feature & cannot be tested with a volt meter. When a
problem is present the main control box will diagnose the fault, prohibit the scooter from being driven
and sound an alert beep. Each alert beep indicates a different issue which helps to determining the
problem by narrowing the fault into one of a few main areas of the scooter. Reference this information
below for the alert beep indications.

Very Rapid beep- Batteries are low. Charge & test batteries.
Medium Fast beep- Motor/brake wiring fault. Free wheel lever disengaged.
Solid beep- The charger is plugged into the scooter (some models may vary).
Very Slow beep- The throttle pot was not at center when you turned the unit on. Throttle pot off
center or wiring (yellow & orange wires) fault.

Mobility scooter beeps but will not move


The 5-beeps indicates you are in free-wheeling mode. If the free-wheeling brake disengage lever is in the correct position then you likely have a bad brake switch or bad brake coil assembly.
Verify free wheel lever is in correct position and Replace the bad component if necessary.

Gogo elitescooter lights indicate battery fully charged but scooter will not go


Make sure the free-wheel lever is engaged and the charger is unplugged from the scooter before you try to turn the scooter on. If the battery gauge goes up when you turn the scooter on and there are no beeping sounds you should be good to go.If the battery gauge drops to the red when you try to accelerate slowly, your batteries are shot. (Typical replacement in 24-48 months).If there is any beeping when the key is first turned on then there is a problem and the number of beeps indicates the problem found by the computer during the POST.

Scooter does not move either direction. when i insert the key i get 10 fast beeps and the 9 slower beeps


This scooter has an S drive controller. The beep code will begin with 10 very fast beeps followed by a number of slower beeps. The number of slower beeps indicates the actual code. It will do this only once. To repeat the beep code, remove and reinsert the key.
Beep code #9 is a possible controller trip.
Diagnosis:
The key may have been inserted during battery box installation.
The controller may be overheated.
The brake is dragging or pulling too much current.
Solution:
Remove the key from the key switch before installing the battery box.
If the problem persists shut down the scooter for 10-15 minutes and allow the controller to cool down.
Bottom line is that you may need a new controller or brake. Keep in mind these may be warranty items. A qualified technician may be needed to diagnose and repair the problem. Hope this helps.

I have a gogo three wheeler and some times when i turn on the switch the scooter will not move, but when i turn the switch off and on two or three times it will work and some times the horn will start...


The go go controller has a controller which will give you a specific beep code to indicate the problem with your scooter. From what you are describing, it seems that the throttle potentiometer is out of neutral at start-up. The controller needs to electrically sense the throttle pot is in neutral (center of left and right) to start. By turning the scooter on and off you are jiggling the pot enough to get it to zero out(go to neutral).
Please get back to me with the exact model of the go go and with the exact number of beeps in the error code and I will be able to diagnose the problem in a more definitive way.
The most common error codes involve the throttle pot out of neutral at start-up and the brake freewheel lever is in freewheel.
You can see if the throttle pot is out of neutral by moving it slightly in either direction with one hand and turning the scooter off and on with the other hand. If the scooter works by this slight adjustment of the pot, then this part needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.
