Wigwag fault code flashing on
The throttle potentiometer error code is caused by a damaged or worn potentiometer. The fix for this problem is to replace the throttle potentiometer. The part is available from Pride based on the model and serial number. Hope this helps.

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...
