Yep There are 3 possible problems 1. Make sure that the key is out of the lock before reinstalling the battery pack. 2. The controller is overheating. Let it rest 10-15 minutes to cool down if it happens again and 3. I think you are having a brake problem where the brake is not fully disengaging from the motor and causing excess drag on the motor.
You can remove the brake from the rear of the motor being careful not to break or pull the wires going to the brake. Tie the brake up away from the motor keeping the wires intact. Try driving the scooter and see if it still shutters. If it doesn't then you can use it like that but you will have no brake and if you use ramps it is dangerous. You can carefully remove the brake pad and give it a good cleaning along with the face of the motor where the brake pad rubs. Then reinstall all the parts and try your scooter again. The shuttering should stop and to excess overload of the motor should stop too. You could replace the brake by contacting Pride Mobility @1-800-800-8586 and talk with tech support to find out if you can just replace the brake assembly. Hope this helps you

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.

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.

When I turn the key on it beeps 10 times and then pauses and beeps 5 times. The manual says that the five beeps indicate the manual freewheel lever needs to be put in drive. I did exactly as the manual...

The beep code will begin with 10 very fast beeps, followed by 5 slower beeps. The 5 slower beeps is your actual code. The beep code 5 is a brake fault.
The scooter may be in freewheel mode or there may be a short in the brake.
Make sure the scooter is in drive mode with the rear brake lever in the correct position. If that does not clear the fault you need to check the electromagnetic brake.
To check the brake you need a digital voltmeter. The brake should read 30 to 65 ohms when you read across the pins. You need to measure the resistance at each successive point on the harness because there are 5 connectors. While you are inspecting these plugs, check for corrosion, loose pins, broken wires, and pins not making good contact. Disassemble the front and rear halves of the scooter when you do this.
If all the resistance checks are good up to the controller plug for the brake, you have a bad controller. With that being said, I usually see a bad connection at the multiple points in-between. Sometimes the wires for the brake will melt at the connector at the controller.
Inspect these areas visually, removing the rear cover of the brake/motor/transaxle and the controller. An experienced tech should charge you under 1 hour labor for the diagnosis. You may be able to save some money by checking the obvious areas for unplugged or bad connections first.
The brake will cost about $250, the interface wiring and connectors about $50 and the controller is about $500. For this reason, you should invest in a good tech to diagnose the problem first, before proceeding with any hit and miss do it yourself repairs.
Including a second visit to install the new parts, labor cost should not exceed 2 hours total.
This is a very popular model so you should be able to find an experienced tech in your area.

My son has a pride mobility 3 wheel go go scooter, purchased less then a year ago. He has MS and depends on the scooter to get around college. It stops intermittently, he hears 7 beeps, and then 2 more...

The throttle potentiometer, which the throttle lever is attached to, is a component that is very prone to wear. Often there is a bad or uneven surface on the sliding contacts that can give poor performance or surging throughout the throttle range. I have had to replace several during the warranty period. According to your beep code description there could be a bad or intermittant component or a loose wiring connection of the speed pot, throttle pot or front to rear harness. I usually replace the speed potentiometer and the throttle potentiometer at the same time because these two components are interconnected. There could be a loose connection in the front console or loose connector. It is also a good idea to check the front to rear wiring harness connectors and harness for cuts or shorts. This also gives a 7 beep code. Check for binding of the throttle lever on the console case and a bent throttle shaft and mounting bracket. If the scooter is less than a year old it should be covered under warranty. Keep in mind that replacing these components under warranty requires a factory certified tech at a dealer. I hope this helps.

Scooter moves approx 10 feet then stops led flashes 8 times then stops

Hi. 8 flashes is a fault code for a motor fault. It will be either worn brushes in the motor or faulty connectors to the motor. This fault code means that there is no circuit through the motor. Probably time to overhaul the motor. Most mobility scooters have plugs and sockets that are really to small to carry the amount of current that they do. Because of this, they sometimes fail.Good luck. Neil.

Beeps when in drive won't move

How many times does it beep or is it continuous? Should beep a few times (usually up to 9 times), then stop, then beep so many times again, then stop and so an and so forth. Most of the time this is caused by the scooter being in freewheel or THINKING its in freewheel which could be a faulty brake switch. Also, on the GoGo ultra, the battery contacts regularly cause this problem and have to be replaced. They should be splotlessly clean and shiny for the contact to be good.
