Draw on Pride scooter batteries
Your scooter requires two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. They
are recharged by an off-board charging system.
! Charge your scooter’s batteries prior to using it for the first time.
! Keep the batteries fully charged to keep your scooter running smoothly.
READING YOUR BATTERY VOLTAGE
The battery condition meter on the tiller console indicates the approximate
strength of your batteries using a colour code. From right to left, green
indicates fully charged batteries, yellow a draining charge and red indicates
that an immediate recharge is necessary. To ensure the highest
accuracy, the battery condition meter should be checked while operating
your scooter at full speed on a dry, level surface.
The off-board charger supplied with your scooter is equipped with a 115/230 voltage switch. Confirm that this
switch is in the proper position for your locality. If you are not sure what the voltage is in your country, contact your
local electricity dealer before inserting the charger power lead plug into your wall socket. If the setting is incorrect,
the charger will not function properly. Slide the voltage switch to the appropriate position.
The fuse controls the internal wiring harness.When its remove the wires controlling the scooter stops functioning.And due to that battery stops drawing.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this

Service manual for a mobility scooter
I have searched extensively, for a service manual, schematics etc, however i was unable to find any. I suggest you contact Pride, and ask them for a service and repair manual. I have included links, to Pride, also their troubleshooting procedures, and the other one is for your user manual, which will be handy. Sorry I couldn't help more.

Sounds like your joystick is damaged. This chair probably has a PG Drives Technology joystick that serves as both the joystick control and acts as the power control module. If it has been damaged by say, running into a wall or doorway or table, this can be the cause, or if it has gotten moisture inside it, that will hurt it as well. Other possibilities are overloading the chair past its weight capacity or driving it over unstable terrain like sand, gravel, much etc.

I have a scooter and it was working perfectly but
Assuming you didn't get the PC board mounted inside the top of the tiller assembly wet, or the power controller located under the shroud, then you likely either have one or two of the batteries that are bad, or a bad charger. You will need a voltage tester that you can pick up cheap for about $6.00. Set to the DV voltage setting in the 50-100 volt scale. Remove the seat and the shroud and test the voltage at each battery. If good, they should read about 12.25 volts or more, not higher than 14. If one is normal and the other lower, say 10 Volts, that low one is bad, but you should probably replace both with fresh gel batteries, fully charge before using. If both batteries are about 12 VDC, then plug in the charger to the chair as usual, and take another voltage test on each battery. The voltage should read higher now that the charger is on. If they aren't, then your charger has no output. Some chargers you can test output voltage on without them plugged in by testing across the two horizontal pins on the 3-pin connector that you plug into the chair. The output voltage should be about 26 volts. If it is 24 or less, you need a new charger. Good luck.

Pronto m-51 chair laggs a lot when going up a hill of any grade.
A few questions. How old is the chair? When was it last given a service? This sounds like a power supply issue.
Try the basics first. If the batteries are removable, disconnect them and check the connectors are clean and shiny. Does the battery have a full charge in it? Is the hand control settings set too low?
If the chair is used a lot and it is an older model the batteries could be starting to get old. Batteries lose their ability to deliver power as they age. If they are OK you might need to get the motor checked. Older models use 'brush' type motors which gradually wear out over time.
