Battery not charging
Is the charger working? They do fail.
How old are the batteries? They have a lifespan of + - two years.
Has your main charger/ battery fuse blown?
Pride may tell you as they told me that it doesn't have one, nevertheless I found mine below the floor hatch under the foot mat ... and? It was blown. It's a standard 10 Amp car fuse, it cost a few cents and the problem was fixed.
The provider had said that it was definately my batteries and that he would replace them at €157.00 He didn't seem interested when I told him that they were already new! " One of them will be faulty then" he said.
Find that fuse, it's not in the tiller fuse box - but please don't forget that there is a risk of a power short or a bad electric shock be very careful and/ or get an electrician's help.

Rolls to a stop then jerks hard
Replace engager assembly, dial-a-speed pot and try again. These are common wear items (about every 3-6 years with or without use.)
If issue continues you have a bad controller... which is not common.

Have a Pride Maxima 4
I see you checked everything but still the unit will not run at all.
Here is a link
where you can as well download the Manual and information on how the wiring and assembly should be.
I check your concern, the only possible causes could be related to power I believe you mentioned that you already check all connections right, I guess it won't hurt to check the + and - Terminals have the correct cable to it, also make sure the both battery Harnesses are from both batteries are are plugged into their mating Harnesses leading to the charger.

I have a Pride maxima
there is a long list of things that could cause this problem.
if you have pneumatic tyres, make sure they are not soft. this can cause a lot of extra resistance, and cause overheating.
a dragging brake could could do this, but would be unusual. the brake unit would also feel extremely hot to touch if this is the case. you are more likely to have dry bearings on the wheels and transmission, or something wrapped (grass is common) around the axle. spin the front wheels to make sure they are free, and put the scooter in freewheel (lever or button on back of scooter) to do the same with the back wheels and axle.
another possibility is that the batteries are faulty. this can be confirmed with a battery load test which most garages can perform free of charge. the batteries should be fully charged for this and removed from the machine. a 100amp load test for 6-8 seconds should be enough for these batteries.
also make sure that any cooling fins and the area around the controller is clean and free from dirt that could prevent the unit from cooling properly.
another thing to check is that the weight limint for the scooter is not being exceeded. you will have to check the scooter manual for the exact weight limits.
these are the most common things that can cause this problem, and should be checked before doing any further tests.
please feel free to ask for further information if these steps do not resolve the problem.
hope this helps
