Question about Pride Health & Beauty
This is a very typical error code when the throttle potentiometer is out of neutral at start up. This is caused by wear or hitting or bending the throttle lever.
In my experience the best way to adjust the throttle pot is to clean it. I usually replace both the throttle potentiometer and speed potentiometer when they fail, cause an error beep, or they have dead spots. You can carefully remove these components by removing the covers and following the service procedures in the service manual. Very carefully take them apart to clean the wiper on the potentiometer with electronic spray contact cleaner (this is not in the service manual; use extreme care and do it delicately).
You can adjust the spring tension on the throttle potentiometer with careful bending.
You can first try to zero out the throttle pot by hand (even it out) and start the scooter to clear the error code. With your left hand adjust the lever left or right and with your right hand turn the scooter on. By trial and error you may be able to get this to work.
In both circumstances you will wind up replacing both components anyway and the fixes I have described are only temporary. Hope this helps.
