Since it got freezing last nite & now it won't

If the engine will not turn over very fast,it is most likely your battery.Cold weather will kill a weak battery a lots of times.

The battery is good but it wont start

It may be the solenoid (electro-magnetic clamp) that engages the starter motor with the flywheel to start the car. Unfortunately, this usually involves replacing the entire starter.

Hi I have just been given a loan of a heartway mobility scooter. It was only used once but the lady found it to fast so it has been packed away for 2 years. I sent it off for new batteries and a service...

Willis try plugging in the charger and charging overnite tonite. In the morning check the charge and see if you get more than 3 bars. Also look at the charger light and see if it has turned green. If it is green then the lights should all be lit, if not then you could have received a bad battery. after charging all nite bring the scooter to the place that serviced it for you and have them check the batteries to make sure that they pass a load test (do not try to drive the scooter they need to check the batteries with a full charge) If the batteries check out ok then you will have to have them check the charger and replace the charger if necessary. Hope this helps you

Not turning over, no sound from radio battery is origioal

Have you checked to see if the battery is charged?

If it's sufficiently charged, is the fuse(s) running from there all intact and working? (check with a meter, sometimes they don't "look" like they're bad..)

If you have just a little charge, but not enough you'd hear the starter at least trying to engage, even if it can't turn it over.

If you don't have radio, lights, nothing, then I'd be looking at the battery and the fuses closely. You may want to actually check the book on what fuses you should find, because some of them are not obvious, or all in the same place, like in a car. I've found them tucked away behind panels or behind the battery and the only reason I found them was I knew it was there and kept looking until I did.

If you leave your scooter hooked up in the cold weather but don't start it, or don't hook a battery-tender to it, then it can suffer for it and have reduced capacity over time. I used to ride mine most of the year so I started it regularly, even in the winter (Kentucky), but I have had friends who lose batteries because they just store them, cables hooked or not, and leave them for months at a time.

Heat and sitting idle on a shelf or in the bike can take their toll on the battery. If you actually show a charge on the battery on a meter it still may not have the "power" to turn the bike over. In that case I'd use a "load meter" which puts a load on the battery while it measures that performance and I can see if it'll hold up or not. But again, in this case you're not getting much coming on that you can see or hear, so I'd still look at the battery and the fuses.

Many auto parts stores will load check that battery for you for free if you bring it in to them.

Good Luck!!!

Won't start

disconnected the battery last nite, reconnected this morning, started right away.
I noticed a cell phone charger was plugged in, I am hoping this is the thing that was draining the battery, if not, will look further.

How do i turn on my protege pc link and does it require a battery

Jean, yes this does take 2 "cr2025 lithium" batteries, which are pretty easy to find anywhere that sells watch batteries. However, when I purchased mine it had a plastic tab sticking out of the back of it, from under the battery access cover, which was blocking the batteries from making contact to prevent them from draining before first use, so you might want to check if there's a piece of clear plastic sticking out of the back and if so, just pull it out. If that's not the case, then odds are the batteries did drain while sitting and you'll need to replace them. Hope this helps, Scott
