Engine Scooter, throttle does not work

The throttle suddenly stopped working. When turning the throttle, nothing happens, the scooter does not go forward. The throttle appears to have no tension/friciton like before; feels loose on the handle. When turning the throttle, there is a small click, but nothing happens.

Trace the cable to the connection on the motor.check that throttle lever is connected to cable,and lever moves when throttle is turned.cable may have broken.

Scooter, when key is turned on the scotter jumps forward, the thottle is not in use, and the scooter is NOT IN GEAR, scarry


Your scooter may have lost its inhibit resistor 10k resistor that some scooters had on the center post of the throttle pot to stop this from happening. but the throttle has to be out of neutral position in order for it to move on startup. The throttle pots are normally 5k ohm pot, about 2.5k from the center to either outside posts. It would be wise to replace the speed control and the throttle together. Basically the controller thinks it is being told to go right at start up, that comes from the throttle.

Pride celebrity x scooter flashes 6 times and s ometimes 5 times


hi, they are good readings, the brake resistance is a bit low...however does the brake click when moving the throttle lever to go forward or backwards ?

if the brake is not releasing the scooter will never move...

does the throttle lever feel loose ? you need to convince yourself that the throttle part is working correctly , if you double checked everything including the brake and connectors then we need to look at the controller ..

I do offer a free testing service...

Scooter goes in reverse on switch on


hi ,that sounds like the throttle pot is no centre, some controllers will signal a fault some don't so it's possible the throttle pot stem has turned round, check by looking at the base of the stem , you should see a cross head, now that should be dead centre to you when turning on...

Hi my days strider midi4 keeps going in reverse for about 4 seconds after you take the throttle off


spares sounds like the throttle pot is not being centered upon release making the scooter move in reverse or forward depending on which way it is off center. try pushing on the thottle lever slowly forward when you stop to see if that stops the creeping. Then you can try to adjust the pot by loosening the lever and retightening it in the forward direction that stops the creeping. You might have to order a new throttle pot assembly to get this working right. Hope this helps

Go Go Scooter travels in reverse, but when going forward it comes to an abrupt stop every few seconds. Everything else appears to work normally. Any ideas?


csr4 Well it could be the throttle pot or the speed control pot My leanings is toward the throttle pot since it works in reverse with the speed pot not being changed but not forward. when you are just changing the position of the throttle to forward thereby changing the pot wiper and getting the error. Contact Pride about the problem at 1-800-800-8586 and ask for Tech support for scooters and explain your problem to them. I hope this helps

if it is a delay in a connection,there has to be something delaying it,so have it checked by a qualified dealer or electrician if he is updated on the product.

I have a ctm scooter the battries are charged fully when i switch on the scooter will not work switch off and on again it then will travel a few feet before stopping


I would say the throttle pot is slightly out of neutral allowing the scooter to travel slightly when turned on. Try moving the throttle lever slightly in the opposite direction to which the scooter is travelling (i.e. if the scooter moves forward when turned on, press the lever to go backwards, but only a small amount). If the scooter stops and you hear a clicking noise from the back of the scooter (this would be the brake clicking on) then that would be your problem. Would just need a small adjustment but best left to a dealer as it has to be sopt on! Sometimes scooters will not work if the throttle is slightly out but if its only a very small amount out of neutral, it might sometimes work in the manner you have suggested. We have come accross this fault on a few occasions. Hope this helps...
