Question about Electric Currie EZIP 500 Scooter

1 Answer

No charge indication on throttle and motor doesn't work - New charged batteries.

Have new batteries and the scooter does not light up on the handle and the motor doesn't work when throttle is turned. I hear a click when the power is on and when turned off, as well as when the throttle is turned, in the controller. What could be wrong? The wires look good.

Make certain the Batteries are IDENTICAL to the original. Any change of the Voltage, Current, or Amps will damage the motor or starter. Check all connections to see if they are properly set and Plus is to Plus and Minus to Minus. Check the Ground wires. Make certain all wires are insulated well, no cuts, peeling, cracks, or holes. Technically speaking, if you do not have test equipment like a VOM (Meter) you cannot check continuity (for shorts) and leaks.

SOURCE: Motor won't engage. I turn the throttle and get a clicking sound, but nothing happens. We've charged the battery for about 4-6 hours, but the light stays red, never turns green. Help?!!

sounds like the battery is bad and not taking charge.replace battery attemp again if not then check for fuel, spark and compression.then c wat happens or wats not working any motor no matter how small or big has to hv those three things to run. hope this helps.

any fuses in the system
might need a volt meter to test all the wires voltages and resistance between battery and throttle

info says comes with two batteries
ouch the w/55AH Batteries are about $250
are both batteries holding full charge

Batteries wont charge


You would need a voltmeter to check the charger in order to see if it is charging the batteries. New batteries if purchased from a reputable outfit will have a nominal charge and should work initially in order to test the scooter. Depending on the model check for blown fuses and disconnected wires on the battery boxes, connections, plugs and charging circuits including the wall outlet. The display on the scooter will indicate the state of charge and the key switch should work and give an initial indication that the scooter is on. If you provide make and model I can respond with more specific information.

not my words. The link to the pdf for this is http://www.discovermymobility.com/store/scooters/summit-scooters/elite-portable-scooter/manual.pdf
you want page 22.

Problem Check Point
The driving of the wheelchair is too slow or insufficient, the status
indicator lamp flashes slowly Batteries are exhausted and need to be recharged
1 flash The battery needs charging or there is a bad connection to the battery. Check the connections to the battery or charge batteries.
2 flashes There is a bad connection to the motor.
Check all connections between the motor and the controller.
3 flashes The motor has a short circuit to a battery connection.
4 flashes Freewheel is engaged.
5 flashes Not used.
6 flashes The controller is being inhibited from driving; this may be because the battery charger is connected.
7 flashes A throttle fault is indicated. Make sure that the throttle is in the rest position before switching on the scooter
8 flashes A controller fault is indicated. Make sure the controller connections are secure.
9 flashes The parking brakes have a bad connection. Check the parking brake and motor connections. Make sure the controller connections are secure.
The-Active-Light
does not function,
the Battery/
Status indicator
flashes rapidly.
Count the number
of flashes:
10 flashes
An excessive voltage has been applied
to the controller. This is usually caused
by a poor battery connection. Check the
battery packs and controller
connections.

My victory 4 mobilty wont charge the green light is very faint/the charger was tested working.so why wont my scooter charge


make sure battery cables are secure at battery terminals and clean.how old are the batteries.If the batteries run down fast they are no good.a good way to test them is put scooter against some thing solid and go forward.If the battery indicator drops to o the batteries are no good.It takes about 10 hours to charge the batteries

Schooter slowsdown that stops after a while schooter starts


I'm assuming you have a full charge on your batteries? The problem is that the charger can be fulled into thinking that your batteries are at a full charge when they are not. The battery will put out he correct voltage so your voltage gage reads right. The battery will put out the correct resistance so the charger will see a charged battery. Chargers work by resistance the lower the resistance the harder the charger works to charge the battery. So the only way to determine the real state of charge is to bring the batteries to a battery shop. Have them load test the battery in your presence if the battery is new. This is not a pass or fail test.What we are looking for is the upper limit of the cranking amps the battery will output.They may tell you this battery isn't supposed to be measured that way because in battery is not used to start a car. Well most of the equipment is geared for measuring car batteries. For what we are doing here it doesn't matter. For my scooter batteries i use two 12v 35amp/hr batteries. Have them grab a new one off the shelf, have them find the upper limit of the amp output. What happened to me is i didn't watch them do this test. The instrument he was using will give you a pass.or fail indication at a preset level of about 150 amp/hr unless you manually input a higher level to test for. This was a new battery and they want it to pass. I had them find the upper limit of a new off the shelf battery by entering higher values into the test instrument until it failed back off on the value until i found it passed. A new battery like the one my scooter uses will put out close to 500 cranking amps. Well when i tested my battery it barely reached 200 cranking amps. So in fact this battery doesn't have the capacity of the off the shelf battery. So as you load it the voltage goes down. My motor controller will detect that and give me a fail indication.

oK if this is not the problem we can look for amp leaks. Put a amp meter between the battery and the load. Turn the scooter off, get a reading?.If you do something is either on or a resistive short drawing down your battery. Disconnect stuff until the reading is zero. What ever you disconnected last will give you the section of the scooter the problem is coming from. Like if you disconnect the control head and it drops to zero i would start there. Turn the scooter on there should be an indication, but it should be under an amp. Now get the rear wheels up so that they can rotate freely. Apply just enough power to move the wheels. Look at the meter if its a analog meter does it jump around. Does the motor stall at any time. If the first thing happens you have a partially shorted winding in the motor. IF the second thing happens the meter will jump up or down indicating either an open or shorted winding.
Now floor it jot down the amp draw. IS it excessive? We check this by doing the math. My scooter use two 12 v 35 amp/hr batteries hooked in series. So i have a 24v system @ 35amp/hr, the scooter has a loaded range of 25 mile at a speed of 5 mph.So my battery life is going to be about 5 hours. So we can say the motor loaded on a flat surface will use about 7 amp/hr. So running the motor flat out unloaded is going to be less than 7 amp/hr. My scooter's motor runs at about >5 amp/hr unloaded. Hope this helps

DRIVEMEDICAL PHOENIX 3 WHEEL Just bought it and charged it for 10hours. When I put battery into scooter, all the battery lights come on- 2red 1yellow 2green.....so is it charged? are the connections loose?...


Wez Thats a normal indication of a full charge. The battery level indicator will go down as you use the scooter. Always charge the scooter overnite if you use it a good bit during the day. With new batteries it will take 8-10 charging to break them in and operating at 100%. Always store fully charged and if not used alot charge once a week after you have charged the batteries 8-10 times

Hope this helps

On an E 100 Razor scooter, the battery charger shows charged


We had the same problem that I found to have a very simple fix. It seems all that needed to be done was hold in the reset button a few seconds while the battery charger was plugged in and the light on the charger turned to red and the battery charged again. Seems like too easy of a fix but it worked for my kids scooter.
