How can read the computers on these mobility scooters?
hi, Hal, If you are referring to the chrome looking SD Drives controller, yes they do have a microprocessor built in and you need a programmer to access and change settings etc....
Now if you are UK based I can test the controller free of charge for you , you only have to pay the return postage ..

Why does my Pride Go-Go Ultra X 4-Wheel not break quickly?
You may need to charge the batteries fully. You may be exceeding the hill slope recommended or exceeding the weight capacity. These are light duty scooters with light duty brakes. Slow down and enjoy the ride keeping this in mind. You may want to have the throttle potentiometer checked out. It needs to go to neutral for the brake to engage. These scooters have a relatively long brake sense engagement through the controller electronics.

Intermittent warning beep and won't move
There is this set of wires that run from the tiller head to the scooter body On most of the newer scooters you must remove this cable to split the scooters front half from the back half. This cable has a bunch of wires and pins at its connection point. You need a VOM meter only $9
Turn the scooter off, disconnect the battery, leave the cable plugged up. With respect to the cable, every wire going in must come out. We want to check the continuity of this cable. To do this take the vom meter set it for the highest ohm setting short the probes zero the meter. Look for wires running to the connector you will see the back side of the pins, put a probe on a backside of the pin , now goto the other side of the cable. probe around those wire, for every wire going into the connector/cable combo there should be a wire running out. These cable get pushed pins the female pins can spread to the point were its intermittent. This cable can often be seen being dragged across the ground they ofter get snagged damaging them

My Pride Victory 10 scooter has newer batteries. How do I troubleshoot why it shows fully charged, needs charging, then fully charged?
Your description suggests one or both of the batteries are sulphated - been allowed to remain partially discharged or even fully discharged for a few weeks or more.
Charge the batteries, allow them to stand for a few hours and connect a voltmeter. A healthy young battery should read 13/13.2 volts while an older battery that is still serviceable might only achieve 12.7. Much below this and the capacity will be much reduced.
If these are the sort of voltages you have, the charger is probably ok. Ride the scooter until the battery indicator shows recharge is needed and test the voltage again - if it has fallen considerably, at least one of the batteries is faulty.
Traction, semi-traction or deep cycle batteries are the only ones that should be used and cheaper batteries will serve for a time but rarely survive the warranty period.
Batteries that are discharged generate heat when recharged and it is the heat that shortens battery life. Batteries last longer if they receive a top-up charge after each use.
Never leave a battery in a discharged or semi discharged state...
