The faults you are describing do match flat or faulty batteries more than anything else.

check that the connections are good on the batteries and that the battery pack connects properly.
i think it would be worth you testing the charger and the batteries to make sure they are working properly. i would not change any other parts until these have been checked.

if the bike was stored in a garage or shed during the winter it is possible that the batteries inside the battery pack may have been damaged by the cold.

if you send make and model and age of the bike i can send you far more detailed testing proceedures, but i would need the details, as battery types and voltages vary from bike to bike.

Does the horn sound when you press it on the steering wheel if not check for a blown fuse to horn and then if ok see if you have power to horn and then if that is ok run a wire from the battery to the horn and see if it honks.

I charging my electric wheelchair a DL 5.2i. when is changing completed?

On this controller there is a 6 light LED display above the battery icon which is below the horn button. Turn on the power chair with the 1/0 button and the LED display will light up. The lights are red on the left, yellow in the middle and green to the right. If all 6 lights are lit the chair is fully charged. Hope this helps.

The security system thinks that something is wrong and is sounding the horn and flashing the lights. This is because the system had no battery power. Unlock all the doors, put key in ignition turn all way except to start the engine. remove key from ignition and lock all doors, This may reset the security system.

Pride colt . fully charged batteries but no power to lights indicators or drive

hi, okay have you checked the fuses located on the tiller stem normally located under a black plastic cover ?

Your batteries may be fully charged but the voltage is not enough to power up the controller, sigh of a dodgy charger ? , bad batteries ? ? check the battery voltage , should be at least 24volts
The horn will work as it bypasses the controller logic.

Led lights flash and Pride Go chair won't move.

Firstly disengage the drive levers and then "flick "them in fash.
Second pull out the large plug that is between them.
Check for damaged or bent or loose pins. press it home firmly .
I did this on my wifes chair and she zooms around.
All switched etc should be off during charge.

Lastly i fully discharged then recharged the battery to ensure no "battery charge memory".
To fully dicharge i shoved a small box between back wheels so to lift of ground and then a elastic band to hond controler on.

Battery not charging

Sounds like the cells in the battery have shorted. It's probably shot. Does the car run once its jump started? Does it continue to run after the cables are removed, if so your alternator is ok and its the battery. Hope that helps.
