The female connector in the base of the phone, that the charger plugs into is damaged. It is a small component(4x4x8mm) that lifts out once the phone is dismantled. It has FOXCONN printed on one side and 5512A on the end. Where could I get a replacement?

charger may be faulty.
check the charger lead for signs of damage and if damaged fix. if possible check the charger with another wheelchair (maybe a friend has a chair you could try it on) or can you borrow a charger to see if the problem persists with another charger, if it solves the problem you need a new charger, if not then:
there could be a loose connection, do you find it has the same problem when the battery pack is fitted and when off board?
if it is not the charger there is not much it can be, if you or a friend is handy with a screwdriver you can open the battery box, remove the screws and lift off the lid (just lift a small amount as there are wires attached to it) there is enough space to check that all the wires are securely connected to the charge socket and the batteries. if you have a multi meter check the continuity if they are all good the chances are that the charge socket is damaged and needs replacing, (do an ebay search for: "XLR 3 pin female panel mount socket" they start from about 2.00 pounds)
check the charger once... which type of charger u r using is it the base charger or normal travel charger ... if it is base charger then ur phone is not connected properly i think... just have a check.. if u have warranty then just take the cell to the shop from which u purchased it ... as it is brand new there will not b problem with the battery i think just have a change with the charger & c.. it should work
It has been done before, but you will violate the safety to do that and anything that happens with this scooter will be your fault! You will need a female electrical part for an XLR Plug to make it so the Male end from the charger will plug in. after wiring the Female connector and plugging the charger in the scooter will run while the charger is plugged in. This can cause safety problems.
What you need to do is to gently pull the cockpit housing off the post at the bottom rear and remove it from the machine. You can now access those connector plugs much easier along with noting where the trim screw is located.
Please note that the battery pack has a female connector while both your charger and the lead to the electric motor have male ends. Those male ends have two small pins within the connector and you need to get them oriented correctly with the round holes within the female connector.
Once you have established this, a dab of finger nail polish on the top side of each connector will make it easier to orient the plugs for charging the battery, or connecting the battery to the motor leads in the future.
Make sure to charge the battery for at least three hours, Do Not Overcharge.
The charger socket is soldered directly to the main board - if it's just the solder joints that have cracked, then a decently equipped mobile phone repair place should be able to resolder it - if it's actually ripped the copper traces off the board, then it's not really practical to repair it.
Since I happened to have a K1 in bits, here is a photo of the connector - it's normally attached quite firmly to the main PCB.
Sounds like the connector for the charger/data cable has become damages, there are tiny pin contacts inside that can get bent or the female port on the phone can become wallowed out. If you have insurance on your phone you can take it back and have it replaced. You might also try some compressed air blown into the connector gently to see if there is something stuck inside.
Check also the charger cable end if you look carefully inside you can see the pins, make sure they aren' bent or pushed in, might have bad charger connector.
It sounds like your mini usb connector is damaged or one of the components near to it. If you're handy you
can buy a replacement and solder it in. You will need a very fine tip
soldering iron and a magnifying glass. The repair can be quite
challenging as the components are surface mounted. If it's a damaged component near the USB connector that is damaged then this wont solve the problem. I can fix it for you for a small fee if you dont want to attempt repair. I've repaired about 20 tomtom units with similar problems. I charge around £35 for this including return postage
