Model Well there could be problems in the tiller area or with the controller near the trans axle. A bad throttle pot can cause it not to move or a bad speed control pot or a bad cable to the tiller from the rear. Could also be a loose connection so check all your connections at the rear and in the tiller. Unfortunately with a scooter there is more that can go wrong than with a power chair and trying to fix over the internet is hard. You can contact your provider to see if they can check it out for you Might cost a little but at least you would know what the problem is. Sorry I couldn't tell you exactly what the cause is Good Luck Hope this helps

This sounds like the battery's have gone bad. You will need to check with a local dealer to find replacement battery's. If you can access the battery's to remove them they can be tested at any local auto parts store.

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'm not to shure the dimensions of your two batteries but this is what i would do. (i go to high school so i have a bunch of time on my hands) Try some car audio batteries like these.

you are probably going to have to copy and past the links. if these can rune a car stereo all day then they should run your scooter for way more than 3 hours.

My Golden Companion II scooter is fully charged & it won't go

Hi.Sounds very much as if your brake unit has burnt out. If you bought the machine new in Feruary, then it is probably still under warranty.
Get your supplier to fix it for you.

When you say the charge is limited, how far do you travel? Also what sized batteries do you have in your machine? Bigger batteries mean you can travel further. Batteries last best if they are not run more than half flat while you are using the machine. You should work on half the distance that is printed in the pamphlet for the distance you can travel.
Do you always charge your batteries overnight after each use.
Hope this helps. Neil.

How long does it take to fully charge Golden Companion II bATTERIES?

Hi. Charging batteries is dependent on how far you travelled, the size of the battery, and the type of charger you have.
The best rule is to charge the batteries overnight after each use.
If your charger has an LED to show when the batteries are nearly full.
This LED is a guide only, and most batteries still need a few more hours of charging after the LED turns green.
Charging batteries is not like filling up a jug of water. Its a chemical reaction in a battery, and it takes time to charge them fully.
Good luck. Neil.

How long does it take to fully charge Companion II batteries?

Hi. Always charge your batteries overnight after each use. Do not charge your batteries for days or weeks at a time unless you have a good quality automatic charger.
Most 4 amp chargers, charge the batteries up to approx 28.5 volts, and will maintain this voltage forever if left on. This will eventually shorten the life of the batteries.
The Invacare 8 amp charger is a fully automatic charger. It will take the batteries up to about 28.5 volts, it will hold this voltage for a few hours, and then drop the voltage to 27.6 volts ( 13.8 volts across each battery ). These chargers can be left on for weeks at a time.
Good luck. Neil.

Scooter will not move

Start with the batteries. They need to be fully charged for operation. Make sure the brake lever is in the locked position for travel. If all OK check the limit switch on the brake assembly to see if it is functioning properly. If it is not closing, then the scooter thinks the brake lever is in the push mode.
