I suspect this will be the batteries. The fact that the ammeter is working suggests the charger is charging the batteries. Just to be certain, the ammeter should start at a higher figure (i.e. 4 - 5 amps) the more discharged the batteries are, and should read zero when the batteries are fully charged. If this is the case, I think the charger and the ammeter are ok. The battery guage should also be ok as these do not usually move at all if they are broken. Batteries can take a, and even hold a charge for a certain period of time if they are weak, but under load, they cannot produce the desired amount of power. It sounds to me like this is your problem, but before you buy new batteries, have them checked properly as other things may be to blame, like a brake problem or even a motor or transaxle problem.

I charge the battery and mark it's full charge,but on the scooter the indicator don't mark is full charge and when you drive,the speed just suddenly will drop and come back ok.


Charging batteries to full means leave on charge for 12 -16 hours as it may show charged but the charger goes into what is called a battery conditioning mode where a small trickle charge takes place to fully charge batteries. Again, how old are batteries and have you had them load tested at all?

Battery light on and off


The battery light means the alternator is not charging the battery. The charging system would need to be checked out when the light is on.

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.

The (new) batteries indicate from the charger that they are fully charged yet only go for 1 mile before indicator goes 'red".


diane how far did ya used to go with a full charge? Just because the provider said the batteries are new doesn't mean they are new coulda sat on the self for 6 months. New batteries can go bad or in your case probably just one is bad. batteries should be under warranty contact the place you bought them and have them check them for you make sure they are fully charged when they pick them up. Hope this helps

Suspect the charger is shot on a seldom used like new Companion II. The batteries are at 3 volts but the charger red light wont illuminate when plugged in. Green light comes on, but not the red. I did see...


MStrong The charger will not charge batteries that are reading that low Replace the batteries and try the charger again. Remember to always charge before use and never charge longer than 12-16 hours. Get into the habit of charging overnite on scooters used everyday and once a week on seldomly used scooters always sore the scooter fully charged and if storing for a longer time remove the batteries and store fully charged. ope this helps you

I have a Rascal 305. How long should built-in charger run to fully charge batteries. Mine only charges about one hour at 3.5 amps (on meter on back) before shutting off. What should charging current be,...


moleman If the batteries are fully depleted then the on-board charger will not pick them up and charge them to full strength. It is not designed to charge very low batteries. If the batteries stayed fully depleted for a period of time you will have to replace both of them. You should never fully discharge your batteries. The battery level gauge on your chair should be used to determine when to charge if it is the red recharge overnite. Get into the habit of recharging overnite if you use the chair daily. Always store the chair fully charged and if not used weekly charge once a week. Never leave the charged plugged in more than 18 hours. The chair only operates on about a 5-6 volt range from about 21-26 volts. If you are in the red the voltage is down to about 20-21 volts. Hope this helps you

Shoprider xl4 deluxe has no power on inclines. lucky if it goes a couple of blocks even on the slightest grade ang the battery gauge goes to 1 light. Even with a fully charged battery has no guts on hills...


`Hi. Sounds very much like a loose battery terminal, or a faulty battery lead connector.
I have also had a few machines that can start jerking because of worn or stuck motor brushes.
Also check the high/low speed switch if you have one, they sometimes cause problems.
How old are your batteries, worn out batteries can still be " fully charged", but are unable to supply the current ( amps ), that the motor needs.
Good luck. Neil.
