Hello, my name is Mike.

Here is a couple areas that would cause this:

A faulty throttle pot ( Wig Wag ). I have changed many throttle pots for this reason.
Also check battery and motor connectors. Sometimes even if the meter is not dropping poor batteries can cause surges which would cause this. Sometimes you get lucky where you take key out, and let set for a bit. Then put key in with out depressing throttle. But that is rare this works. Most times it going to be a battery issue, or a faulty throttle pot. Best to have service place replace this if your not really mechanically inclined in electronics. Thank You , MIke.

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.

I have a pride legond and its painfully slow. i have lppked for the pots but so far no luck. would help if i knew where too look. thanks jtff


http://www.pridemobility.com/contact.asp Here's the contact link for Pride Mobility. If you bought the scooter used, it may have been reprogrammed by a dealer for a slow maximum speed and not the pot at all. You need a programmer to access the controller and reset the max speed setting to 100% and clear any user profiles from the former owner. Usually when the pot goes out, it is completely dead, or will only operate at one speed, or will operate off and on.

Sounds like you have a bad throttle pot. You`ll need to check the resistance on it or take it to a dealer.

Had a similar problem with my shoprider te888's there are 2 possible solutions that I have found.
1. dirt had been picked up in the pad that acts as a brake, causeing the motor to drag and speed up, found this after almost burning my hand on end of motor with brake. disassembling the brake and cleaning with an alchohol soultion fixed this one.
2. Loose wire to battery post, or corrosion on battery connectors can cause this too. found loose terminal on battery by tightening nut where wire attached.drove me nuts for days till I decided to tighten with wrench rather than finger tight... On my scooter it would slow down do to excessive current draw because of bad connection and controller would shutdown, which meant ubrut stop. Showed up mainly when climbing long grade up driveway.
hope this helps
