Hi donmorrill

Dosen't sound like the board at all. Sounds like you have a connection problem front to rear harness. I have worked on many celebrity 2000's and have found a bad connection with symtoms like yours. In the rear you will find where all the connections are plugged in. Check each one for continuity. Clean all connections, also make sure the little metal connectors are intact in the anderson connectors. But you do have a harness problem.

Good Luck

capon which tire is it front or rear? look on the tire and give me the size ie 4.1x3.50 or 4x5 etc I have some tires but need to know size and position Thanks [email protected]

Joan and John,

This is typically not a do-it-yourself repair. The reason is that there are many parts to the steering column including upper and lower bearings and races, steering linkages, a front console wiring harness, and many other small parts. These parts must be assembled in sequence and aligned properly otherwise the scooter will not steer straight and will have noise and sloppiness in the column. You could also damage the wiring harness that goes through this area.
With that being said there ARE some adjustments that can be made to the tiller and steering column to improve its performance.
The tiller angle adjustment knob should be as tight as you can make it by hand.
If you place a block of wood under the front of the scooter you can check for free play with the front wheels off the ground. The tiller should move left and right without binding or noise. The top cup of the bearing race has some lock nuts that you can use as adjusters. Loosen the lock nuts and turn the top race clockwise until the sloppiness is gone and there is some resistance. Re-tighten the lock nuts making sure the column is centered. You don't want to over tighten the bearing races. The tie rods and ball joints are not a DIY adjustment or replacement.
If you need replacement of the top and bottom bearings find a local scooter mechanic or bike shop to do it for you.
If you have serious steering problems do not drive the scooter until it is repaired.
Hope this helps

I would definitely recommend buying some proper straps as this is by far the safest way to raise the scooter. Make sure you get at least 2 straps so that you can position one towards the front and one towards the rear of the scooter to make sure you have an even load. If I were you, I would lay the straps down onto the floor and extend them out. Make sure the spacing is right for the straps. Then drive the scooter over the straps so it is much easier for you to be able to the wrap the straps around the scooter. Make sure you don't trap any delicate items in the straps, for example mirrors and levers. I don't know if you have thought about it but would there be a possibility of getting a tail lift for your vehicle? That would make it so much easier as all you would have to do is drive the scooter onto the tail lift and then raise it, no need for straps at all then.

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

check for loose battery terminals or a loose fuse connection first.

you probably have a stuck step on brake on the back wheels which will disable the unit

I suspect that the electromagnetic brake has seized. I have come across this a few times on some of the larger pride scooters, usually if they have got wet and been left for a while. They can normally be free'd off. First, loosen the left hand rear wheel nut (the one in the middle of the wheel). Put the scooter into freewheel and jack the rear wheels off the ground. Remove the left hand rear wheel and be carefull not to lose the hub key which locates between the axle and hub of the wheel. Unplug the wire that comes out of the brake, then remove the brake from the end of the motor. Before going any further, check to see if you can move the disk inside the brake (the disk is the black part that you can see on the inner side of the brake with the hexagon cut out). If you can move this disk at all, the brake is NOT seized. While at this stage, plug the brake connector wire back in , turn on the scooter and press the throttle lever. If the motor spins, you can discard the motor as being of any promblem. If the brake IS seized, it will need to be dis-assembled. Dis-assembling the brake usually requires the removal of 3 or 4 small allen headed bolts on the rear of the brake, followed by some spacers, small washers and a small ball bearing or two. Watch what comes off and in what order, and be carefull not to lose any parts. Free off the black fibre type disc from the metal plate that it is stuck too. This can be done using a small hammer and large flat bladed screwdriver taking care not to damage the disc. Lightly rub the metal plate with fine grade wet and dry to remove any rust or dirty deposits, then re-assemble the brake in the reverse order, and refit the rear wheel making sure you apply a small amount of grease to the axle shaft.
This should work for you but failing that, I think you will need a new brake assembly.
Hope I have been of some help to you.

Please Check your Potientiometer also known as a Pot, This is your Speed Control and it may be on the way out after 4 Years ,

My Own Pot Packed up after 11 Months, Try to get a Second hand one as they are Expensive to buy,

Please Check that your Freewheel Lever is Fully in Position as if is Slightly out of Position it will Not Work,

Hi John.
The problem could be a worn throttle pot ( wig wag ). Next time you are driving the scooter, try moving the ends of the speed lever slowly up and down, instead of in or out as you normally use it. If the throttle pot is worn, moving the lever this way will make the machine speed up or slow down.
Another cause might be a faulty battery lead connector or a faulty motor connector.
Good luck. Neil.

Check batteries with load tester.If either battery dropsmore than 1 volt under a load,the battery(s)are bad.Replace "both" batteries.

Pride Celebrity... | Answered on Jun 12, 2010

Does the battery meter move and does the green LED on the console come on? If not, then this would probably be the circuit breaker has popped or possibly a fuse blown somewhere. There may be a fuse on each of the battery harness leads, so they could be worth a check. May also be a bad connection somewhere or a broken wire. Also worth checking the key switch incase this is not working. If the green LED on the console IS on, is it flashing and if so, how many times. This is a built in diagnostic system and will tell you what is wrong with the scooter if you have the owners manual to refer to. Hope this helps...

Pride Celebrity... | Answered on Mar 19, 2010

Could be controller or maybe wiring. Very unusual though??? Usually the green light on the console will flash to give you a diagnostics code.

Pride Celebrity... | Answered on Mar 18, 2010

This is probably the throttle pot out of neutral but could be a few other things. I would suggest a visit to your local pride dealer regarding this as it is obviously potentially dangerous and should be investigated as soon as possible.

hi, ok remove the seat by turning it to the left, there is a lever normally on the right side that will allow it be turned round,

once you done that, lift the seat in a upwards motion, the cover should come away by gemerally lifting it, it should be attached by velco underneath,

you should now see two batteries. 40Ah batteries will allow you to go further if the battery Ah is lower, 50ah batteries again will allow you can go even further NOT faster, if you buy the larger AH batteries please make sure the dimensions of the batteries will fit within the scooter battery holders.
