Question about Pride Wrangler Pmv 4 Wheel Scooter

2 Answers

My Pride Wrangler PMV will not move. Battery is fully charged, lights and horn work. My repair person said the controller was sending out an error code on the throttle so he ordered and no change in read out. New controller is now recommended at $1,500 for part alone. Any other solutions? Why so much money? Do they fail frequently?

Bailey I think you said that the throttle pot was replaced and you are still getting the problem? Did your guy also check the speed pot? They can cause the same problem as a bad throttle pot. The controller is the brains and yes they are expensive but I question $1500. No they fail very seldom and usually its another part. How old is the scooter? There is a one year warranty on the controller. The dealer cost for the controller is about 1/3 of what you were quoted. Maybe a little wrangling could reduce your cost. But I would want all things checked first. Hope this helps you

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.

Pride Wrangler PMV has ringing sound when in drive mod? Help

It sounds like the wheel bearings need lubrication or they might not have a fitting to be able to lubricate. If there is no way to lubricate the bearings, they will have to be replaced with new wheel bearings.

Measure the voltage on the charger terminals. It has to be 29 volts when not connected to the scooter. If the charger in an onboard type the fuse for it in in back of the scooter. Download the service manual from Pride's website. It has detailed instructions.

Pride colt . fully charged batteries but no power to lights indicators or drive

hi, okay have you checked the fuses located on the tiller stem normally located under a black plastic cover ?

Your batteries may be fully charged but the voltage is not enough to power up the controller, sigh of a dodgy charger ? , bad batteries ? ? check the battery voltage , should be at least 24volts
The horn will work as it bypasses the controller logic.

My Pride Hurricane PMV will not go forward or backwards when I engage the trottle all I get is a click but it will not move. The battery meter shows fully charged.

Make sure that the manual brake release/freewheel lever is in the DRIVE position. The click indicates the brakes are being released but the motors are not kicking in. I hope this helps- good luck!
