Question about Electric Mobility Mobility Electric Power Scooter Wheelchair. Heavy Duty

Open Question

I have a Pharmore Wizzard scooter. I have replaced the batteries and sometimes the scooter works and sometimes it doesn't, if I go over a bump it cuts out. The diagnostic light was flashing 7 times so I replaced the speed pot, it now flashes 8 times. What could be wrong with it?

hi, ok that's sounds about right, the speed pot hat is attached to the throttle lever is normally about 5K in value.

You will more than likely need a new speed pot but some are connected to the throttle pot as well so it could be that which is at fault. Could also be wiring or worst case, control box but this is unlikely.

SOURCE: I have a milan mobility scooter,turn the key & it sounds a low

Hi. This sounds difficult. I have had a few scooters move slowly forward or in reverse, but not both. Normally if the speed pot ( wig wag ) is not exactly in the central position, they can do this.
It is possible for a scooter to have your problem, if the speed lever is binding or rubbing on the housing. Normally the lever is returned to the middle by a spring around the speed pot shaft. If this spring is loose or broken, then this could also cause the problem. Sometimes a small spot of oil or grease will help.
To check the speed lever is in the middle, slowly move the lever for forward untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Now release the lever and slowly pull it for reverse untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Make sure that the speed lever moves the same amount for forward as it does for reverse. If not adjust it with the key off.
If you get the machine to drive properly, then change the controller to see if it is OK.
As for the beeping, a lot of machines will go into an error mode if the speed lever is not in the central position when you turn the key on. This is a safety precausion.
Good luck. Neil.

Why does it go-stop-go-stop?

The Controller maybe over heating. another thing that could cause this is loose connection to the battery. Throttle may have broken wire and when you hit a bump looses connection. If you let the scooter sit for 10-15 min. before trying again that could have worked better for you.

My Pride scooter bought in '97 doesn't run

Hello, my name is Mike.

Here is a couple areas that would cause this:

A faulty throttle pot ( Wig Wag ). I have changed many throttle pots for this reason.
Also check battery and motor connectors. Sometimes even if the meter is not dropping poor batteries can cause surges which would cause this. Sometimes you get lucky where you take key out, and let set for a bit. Then put key in with out depressing throttle. But that is rare this works. Most times it going to be a battery issue, or a faulty throttle pot. Best to have service place replace this if your not really mechanically inclined in electronics. Thank You , MIke.

9 beeps intermitent sensitive to bumps

9 beeps is an Internal Control Box Trip if im not mistaken. These scooters are usually sensative to bumps due to the battery contacts on the bottom of the battery box and where they connect on the scooter. The scooter contacts are spring loaded posts and should move freely. Both the pads and the posts should be spotlessly clean to achieve a good contact. They should be replaced if they are dirty or worn. You may need to strap the battery pack down somehow or replace the velcro on the bottom of the battery pack and scooter to hold the battery pack firmly in position to stop it from jumping on eneven or bumpy surfaces. The 9 beeps will occur when the scooter loses power momentarily. Presumably, you are just switching the scooter off and back on again to get going again. If so, I would think the battery connections are your only problem. If that doesnt cure your problem, the fault will probably lie in the wiring loom, possibly key switch or even within the battery case itself (corroded terminals???). Hope thats helped.
