Don about the only thing left to check is the brushes in the motor and the brake. You can remove the brush caps and check to make sure that the brushes are not worn badly. You can also chek the rear of the scooter where the brake and the motor are attached and after a period of driving this area can be warm but not very warm or hot to touch. If it is hot or very warm then the brake is dragging and causing an excessive draw on the batteries. You can have the brake replace or take it off and clean the brake pad. Careful don't pull or break the wires going to the brake. Hope this helps let me know if it did Good Luck

My Pride maxima scooter light blinks 1 time on and off repeatedly and meter indicates full charge and scooter runs but will not take a charge with 3 month old batteries


Have the new batteries tested even if they are fairly new, I have seen newer batteries than this fail on many occasions. Also have the charging voltage checked to verify it is within specs.

When first purchased the scooter was charged but barely used for approx. 3 months. when we began using it regularly the first two charges lasted for a weeks use each. from then on the red charge light goes...


Well if the scooter wasn't charged regularly while it sat for 3 months then the batteries are probably weak and will need to be replaced. These smaller batteries will not tolerate not being charged regularly and unfortunately one or both batteries has gotten weaker and does not hold a charge like it should when new. Sorry i can't give you a better answer Remember to charge the new batteries before use and if you are not using the scooter regularly (daily) always put up fully charged and charge at least once a week. If you use it daily charge the scooter when you go to bed and unplug when you get up in the morning. If you do this you should get good use out of your batteries. Hope this helps

Yvonne,

When you say that you put in a new battery, I hope you mean new batteries. This particular scooter takes 2 batteries and just changing one will leave the remaining one in poor condition. Make sure that you have replaced the batteries with the correct size and type. This scooter takes 2, 40 amp hour batteries. Sealed gel AGM batteries are preferred. The batteries should have the number 40 on them with a date code. You need new, fresh batteries to have them work properly. A date code tag of A1 indicates the A month(1st month) or January of 2011 (1 is for 2011). If you are not sure of the battery condition a local shop can load test them for you.
There is a possibility with a 5 year old scooter that a worn motor/brake will cause excessive current draw and drain your batteries. A qualified technician can determine this for you with a service call.
Hope this helps.

I would say that both the batteries are not holding a full charge ....I had one in the past for my mother and if it was not chraged on a regular basis the batteries would die out ....the cheapest and easiest route here is to try new batteries.

Set to move at 8 mph on full charge speed set to max only moving at 1 mph or less using battery charge in 20 mins


Hi, Sadly that sounds like your batteries have called it a day however please check your charger as this can have a fault and this can make your batteries appear weak and the battery teminal connections, are they loose ?. Check your manual as I think you can fit 12V 40Amp batteries to this scooter.

Please leave feedback if my advice helps.

Ultralite 480 lacks power, new batteries fitted 5 months ago, shows fully charged, dips down when accelerator lever pressed but stays in green area


The battery lights dropping down while the scooter is in motion is normal; the motors are drawing current from the batteries which is going to drop the battery level slightly. However, if you see the battery indicator lights dropping off steadily while the scooter is in motion (1 bar every few minues or seconds) this can indicate a battery problem. It sounds like this is normal operation!
Good luck!
