This may be the motor controller. Usually it is a transistor used to drive the motor on this board. It can also be a loose or corroded connection. It can be also a low voltage problem (not battery related but wiring or other) or a internal motor problem.

If you can disconnect then reconnect each connector. If it is loose or dirty that usually is all it takes to fix it. If you can't do that you should take it into a repair shop. Usually the place of purchase will be able to tell you about any local repair shops. When you take it in try and tell them how it drove, what the battery charge was and if anything was abnormal the last time it worked. For example if it drove slower and slower and the just stopped. If there were any smells or smoke. A good repair shop will know whats wrong within a few minutes of looking at the scooter.

If you can work on the scooter you can get repair parts and everything plugs in and out. So if you can get the repair shop to tell you whats wrong or give an estimate then you can save a few dollars by fixing it. This saves the cost of labour. Most people aren't comfortable around electrics so if this is your case get a couple of estimates before committing to getting it fixed. You may get a better deal on parts or labour so it can pay to shop around from as many places as you can find.

VW golf battery replacement - horn/alarm going off when reconnecting.


I suggest you try inserting the ignition key and turning the key to the fully on position before connecting the new battery. Ensure the door is left open.

If the alarm still sounds then starting the engine or attempting to start it might cancel the alarm.
Reading the vehicle handbook could provide more information.

Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.

Cant charge it Lights keep blinking and the only thing that works is the horn.


Before charging, make sure the unit is turned off. Connect the charger to the wall outlet first and then to the chair. Check that the battery cables are attached fully to the control box. Turn on charger. After charging, remove charger and verify the unit is fully in gear. The levers must be fully in the up position. If the lights still flash, some wiring is probably loose, or the drives are not fully engaged.

My gogo ultra is showing fully charged and horn beeps, when i put key in it beeps fast 10 times and 5 beeps after


5 beeps usually means scooter is out of gear, but since the lever is in the drive position and the scooter gearbox/differential is engaged, it seems that the controller is not sensing the gear change. Possibly a faulty micro switch in the motor housing can be the cause of this, usually the micro switch is pressed down by the drive lever and if the switch is pressed down the motor controller knows the scooter is in gear.

Why won't my mobility scooter go?


Three things you might try:
1. Make sure the charging cable is not plugged into the battery pack.
2. Make sure the transaxle is engaged. Try changing the position of the manual freewheel lever.

3. The "horn" also gives diagnostic codes. See if there is a repeating pattern to the beeps and compare them to the code chart.

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.

UNIT LIGHTS UP/HORN WORKS BUT UNIT WILL NOT MOVE
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.

Battery fully charged,horn works but no power to drive wheels


Make sure your freewheel brake is in the DRIVE position. Check your owner's manual for the location of the free wheel lever, ususally it is near the rear of the scooter. If the chair is in DRIVE mode but the wheels will not turn, you may have a motor problem which would require replacing the motors.

New batteries, fully charged, still wont work


I will ask but don't take offence, so many people overlook the obvious, have you checked the free wheel lever/s are not set to free wheel (if it is the scooter will be relatively easy to push forward or backward) if set to free wheel then move lever/s to drive position

this is a link for the sonic scooter user guide, not 100% sure that it is the exact one or not but it should show you were to find the free wheel lock on your scooter it is in this guide and I would be surprised if it is not the same as yours. Hope that helps. Mark.
