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.

What causes a false reading 3 beeps-1 for throttle no good.But if i try the throttle on another pride machine it works perfectly


You may have a bad speed pot. The speed potentiometer is wired in series with the throttle potentiometer. Try testing the speed pot by testing the resistance or simply shorting across it to test. I usually replace both parts for a complete failsafe repair. Hope this helps.

Why will the scooter only move once and than have to wait 10 min for the next time?


hi Nico, first of all let's check those brushes, at worse it 's the controller as i see that before...

Have you check the wiring from the throttle pot to the controller ?

One last thing , the speed pot,,short the two white wires ? and see if there is a improvement as it very hard to sometimes to find a faulty pot purely by taking resistance readings,..

I have a pride go go ultra x scooter... I purchased it, and it had no top dash at all... I put a new throttle pot, and a whole new dash assembly... It runs great... Then I turn the speed pot to fast......


7 flash code is: Throttle control fault.

1. Check wiring for open/short circuits.
2. Check the throttle set-up.... The ohms should be very close to each other when placed checking forward and reverse on set up.

What does the 7 beep code mean on my Pride Victory 10 scooter mean when I turn the key on ?


This is a speed pot or throttle control problem (wig-wag) have you had some speed issues with the scooter before this happened, if so the wig-wag needs replacing. Make sure it is in the centre position at rest and switch the scooter on again.

My pride go go elite traveler 4 wheel stops randomly often with no beeps. I have replaced the throttle, the speed pot, the brake, and the batteries check out fine.


You may have a loose connection at one of the harnesses or connectors. If there are no codes you may have a bad controller or loose connection at the controller. Slow speed problems may be motor or motor brush problems you can diagnose by visual inspection or a voltmeter. Load test the new batteries and the charger output. Block it up and run it checking and knocking all the components until it quits. I have seen a dragging brake caused by a melted controller harness at the controller connector cause a similar problem. Hope this helps.

The go go controller has a controller which will give you a specific beep code to indicate the problem with your scooter. From what you are describing, it seems that the throttle potentiometer is out of neutral at start-up. The controller needs to electrically sense the throttle pot is in neutral (center of left and right) to start. By turning the scooter on and off you are jiggling the pot enough to get it to zero out(go to neutral).
Please get back to me with the exact model of the go go and with the exact number of beeps in the error code and I will be able to diagnose the problem in a more definitive way.
The most common error codes involve the throttle pot out of neutral at start-up and the brake freewheel lever is in freewheel.
You can see if the throttle pot is out of neutral by moving it slightly in either direction with one hand and turning the scooter off and on with the other hand. If the scooter works by this slight adjustment of the pot, then this part needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

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.
