Charger keeps flashing red and
Look at the connector end that plugs into the bike. You might have to take it apart to see the wires inside. My son has a Razor Vespa type scooter and the solder job for the wires inside the connector were not the best. It might be a broken wire, especially if it's flashing between red and green.
Hope this Helps!
Chain & Sprocket turn, but Rear Wheel Not engaging/spinning
The problem is witht he flywheel on the rear wheel assembly. I had mine
fixed by a professional last night (at a bike store). Razor uses a very
cheap spring that is designed to fail and then to top that off did not
use enough bearings as well (12 bearings short out of the factory). My
son had also sprayed WD-40 all around the back axle (trying to make it
faster). This is bad because, the bearings are packed in grease and
WD-40 is a de-greaser. Never get WD-40 anywhere near your back axle!!!
Anyway, the flywheel was way easier to remove than I thought. It is
threaded onto the rim's axle shaft and just screws off. Once you get the
flywheel, off you have to take it apart, fabricate a new spring (my
son's new spring came from an old 10 speed's tensioning spring), reset
the 3 pawls, repack the bearings, put the flywheel back together, and screw it back onto the wheel. I will post a YouTube video on this later. Hopefully this is enough info to get you started.

Either the cheap lead acid batteries are near dead (mostly due to improper maintainance (lead batteries are way too much trouble and lithium should be considered!)
There could be a loose or corroded connection - check on all your wiring, especially the ones to the motor.
Also where it goes into the motor is fragile and people bump that area and it rips the wire, there is a steel spring that surroiunds the wire/s and this sometimes shorts out because of the damaged cause from laying the bike on it's side. check these wires over and tug on the connector wires to find the weak connection. Also verify that your charger turns red indicating it is charging when attempting to charge the bike, if it stays green chances are a dead battery or BMS controller inside battery (Lithium only!)\
Most repairs are very simple if you take the time to check out the connectors and wiring, especially if you use it in bad weather, things get corroded from being wet and power shorts out then corrodes the wires and connectors.
Good to insulate them for the rain etc...
Think Im on the right track here, and i have many ebike because people dont know how to fix simple issues with a tester.
My razor mx 500 motor won't turn.
I think you are talking about an electric motor on your bike . If the motor is New you may have a bad throttle switch . You can use an ohm meter to check the throttle switch . Connect the two leads of the ohm meter to the wires of the throttle switch ( dissconected) . As you turn the throttle the ohm reading should coraspond to how much you turn it .
The bike only goes like 2 miles an hour how can I fix this
this is a little complicated.
1-check fuel line and filter make sure you have a good gas flow.
2-check you'r hose's for leaks 3- OPTIONAL -check you'r engine for
compression.you can buy a pressure gauge at auto zone
buy the one that screws into the piston hole it makes it
easy for you.
REMINDER!! IF CHECKING THE FUEL LINE AND IF IT RUNS BETTER OR BY CHECKING THE HOSE'S AND IF IT RUNS BETTER (THEN YOU WON'T HAVE TO CHECK ENGINE
CHECKUP THIS OPTIONAL.) SAFETY FIRST GOOD LUCK.

i would suggest taking the chain off of the sprocket(cog), then loosening the nuts. then using tire-levers from a bike shop to carefully leve-off the tire. this should work....i have experience with bicycles....i race them!
What is wrong when full power on throttle but only clicks
Check the battery voltage right after the charger shuts off. Should be around 13 volts on each one. Short the power switch contacts and if that helps replace it. Check that the motor and wheel turn freely and dont make noise. Check all the contoller connectors. Sometimes they melt and the connection isnt good. You can always connect the batteries directly to the motor and if it goes full speed then you need what razor calls an electrical kit which has a throttle and controller.
It will not run it just click
Most likely, the last 2 answers are correct. When you charge the battery, does the light on the charger stay red for several hours before turning green? Check the voltage of the 3 batteries after the charger light turns green. It should be 39-40 volts or so no load. Turn the throttle and see if the voltage drops when the relay clicks. You can connect the batteries directly to the motor and it should go full speed if they are good.
