When you put the key in the scooter shows that the battery has a full charge. But when you try to drive it the needle drops all the way down as if the battery is dead. I put my battery on my friends go go scooter and her scooter ran fine. So I don't thank there's anything wrong with the battery. Please help me!! Le Ellen

Re: Scooter has full charge but still won't go.
It probably means that the connections or wiring from your battery are loose or broken. When you add the extra current required to run the motors, the voltage is being lost. Monitor the battery voltage with a meter while trying to drive the scooter will prove this.

Things to check: Drive/Free wheeling switch, brake release lever (this activates an internal micro-switch that enable power to the drive system, battery box connectors (condition of contacts - corroded, missing, loose. etc.); main control cable (corrosion. lose or missing pins, etc). If all these are OK, could be controller or drive control potentiometers (speed, forward, backward) on the handle-bar (tiller). Good luck!
soo Have the provider install new batteries. No telling how long the "new" batteries sat on a shelf and in the showroom without being charged. The batteries are warrantied and should be replaced. While you're at have them check out the scooter after the new batteries are installed and remember to charge before use. Hope this helps
Either the hill is too steep of a grade/incline, the weight of the rider is more than the scooter is designed to carry, or the battery does not have enough power. If the batteries are old or have not been maintained properly, they may not be getting a deep solid charge that is needed to operate on hilly terrain. This is indicated when the batteries show a full charge, and then drop off quickly after a short period of use. Make sure that you are not exceeding the recommended weight limit for the scooter and that your batteries are less than 2 years old. Inclines of more than 5-6 degrees are typically not recommended for safe operation. I hope this information is helpful to you, good luck!
Has the scooter been sitting unused for a while? Will the horn honk when the scooter is connected to the charger? If the batteries are charged and NO LIGHTS come on at all when you turn the scooter on, please check all of your connections, most importantly the fuses as your circuit may be incomplete. If there was any power getting to the scooter at all, the lights would at least blink to let you know there was a problem. When batteries sit for a while they will oxidize and go solid which may prevent them from getting a full charge. The charger shows them as full but it is just the current bouncing back from the solid core. Try replacing the batteries to see if that solves the problem, if not, contact the manufacturer. Good luck!
A small tip here - bigger is better. The large diameter wheels clear gaps in concrete or pavement that would hang up a skate wheel or a scooter with smaller wheels. Most electric scooters also handle well in gravel and small terrain features. We don't recommend slamming electric scooters into a curb to get over it like some people do with their bike. This could result in damage to the electric scooter. Simply Ollie up a curb and keep going.
