Is the charging circuit fuse blown? There are two hidden under the floor mat and hatch. Pride say that they don't exist, but there they are and one of mine mine was blown by a faulty XLR lead

Usually when a scooter dies, there is an event that preceded the dead state that caused the fault. What were you doing before it went dead?

The biggest culprit for scooters and power chairs is moisture. With a scooter, there are two components most susceptible. One is located inside the top of the tiller and it is an electonics board about 6"x4" in size. If you had the scooter out in the rain without protection over the tiller, water can encroach into this area and short the board. Or, a coke or coffee spill can short it. There's a fuse on the board and if it is blown, then likely the board is shot as the fuse merely keeps the tiller from going into a total meltdown in the event of a short. Boards run about $25.00 to $45.00 to replace. Inspect it and look for any signs of overheating or corrosive buil-up and see if the fuse has blown.

The second component is located under the shroud beneath the seat. It is a small metal box which is the power control module and it controls all of the operations of the scooter. It has several wires going into and coming out of it (on-board chargers for some scooters will only have one wire going in and one coming out, sometimes two). These boxes are water resistant, but are susceptible to damage if the scooter has been run through a puddle and a lot of water has splashed up onto it. These are several hundred dollars to replace, but first check all of the fuses coming off the batteries that will lead from the battery to this control box and insure that it isn't a blown fuse. These fuses generally don't blow unless the scooter was operated beyond its capabilities, like driving it in sand, mud or other unstable terrain that puts an enormous strain on the motor and pulling a lot of juice from the batteries. Finally, check all of the connections that clip together. Don't rely on a visual inspection, take them apart, and reconnect them all to insure a good, tight fit.

Hope this helps.

I suspect that the electromagnetic brake has seized. I have come across this a few times on some of the larger pride scooters, usually if they have got wet and been left for a while. They can normally be free'd off. First, loosen the left hand rear wheel nut (the one in the middle of the wheel). Put the scooter into freewheel and jack the rear wheels off the ground. Remove the left hand rear wheel and be carefull not to lose the hub key which locates between the axle and hub of the wheel. Unplug the wire that comes out of the brake, then remove the brake from the end of the motor. Before going any further, check to see if you can move the disk inside the brake (the disk is the black part that you can see on the inner side of the brake with the hexagon cut out). If you can move this disk at all, the brake is NOT seized. While at this stage, plug the brake connector wire back in , turn on the scooter and press the throttle lever. If the motor spins, you can discard the motor as being of any promblem. If the brake IS seized, it will need to be dis-assembled. Dis-assembling the brake usually requires the removal of 3 or 4 small allen headed bolts on the rear of the brake, followed by some spacers, small washers and a small ball bearing or two. Watch what comes off and in what order, and be carefull not to lose any parts. Free off the black fibre type disc from the metal plate that it is stuck too. This can be done using a small hammer and large flat bladed screwdriver taking care not to damage the disc. Lightly rub the metal plate with fine grade wet and dry to remove any rust or dirty deposits, then re-assemble the brake in the reverse order, and refit the rear wheel making sure you apply a small amount of grease to the axle shaft.
This should work for you but failing that, I think you will need a new brake assembly.
Hope I have been of some help to you.

The problem of your legend XL can view from two different ways and also be view at same time from point.

1). From the wire connections and
2). From the ulterlator (i.e motor battery changer).

What you are to do to fix up this problem is to carefuly trace the wire of the power connector if it providing power on to the battery ,if dose not then it means that there is a power faile from the power which has been the couse of the power faile of the battery.
Then the wireing programm will need to be rerun so a to solve the battery problem.

Thank you and thank for using fixya.

Battery fully charged but not power to run

Measure the battery voltage individually. If each battery has less than 10 volts, charge them with an automotive style NON automatic battery charger.

Green light does not come on the power charger

hi, there could be three reason for his .

following the instructions below for a external charger

1. the charger cannot see the battery voltage, this could be because a fues on the scooter has blown. the charger socket is damaged.
2. the Batteries never fully charge because they are damaged.
3. the charger itself has a fault.

I believe that scooter has the charge fuse locate on the tiller column,
Follow the instructions below for a built in charger, if that the case check the fuse on the battery leads,

Otherwise in my experience the batteries cannot be fully charged because they have a fault

Rarely is it the inbuilt charger that is faulty.


Please give feedback...

David, If you are not getting the yellow light on the charger then you have a problem with the charger. What voltage are you getting at the batteries when charging? You can check the charger by removing the end plate where the lights are to see if there is a fuse on the output side of the charger. if there is check to see if the fuse is blown. There probably is a fuse on the other end but since the red light comes on it is good. If you plug the charger into the charger port and put your ear to it you should hear a hum coming from the charger. Hope this helps you
