The motor is overheating. The service manual will tell you how to test. Pride has a service manual you can download from their website.

SOURCE: I have a pride victory xl8. Problem - was running

All scooters have a protection system built in to prevent burning up the motor, and the user, should the scooter overheat. It sounds like yours overheated. If the temp. outside was warm to hot, and your weight is near the weight limit for the scooter, and you are taxing the motors over a hill, or unstable terrain, then the scooter goes into "limp home mode", or just enough to get you a bit aways, and then it will turn off. After a few minutes to cool off, it will go again, but shut down fairly quickly because it takes a spell to let the whole transaxle-motor assembly to get cool.

Check your weight, and anything else you may be carrying with you on the scooter. Check the terrain, and incline you are going against. Throttle down for all these occassions. If you overloaded the system at some point, then you may have overheated the brushes. Remove them (2) with a standard screwdriver and see if the copper coil is still flexible and springy. If not, replace it/them.

The damage may already be done, so it may need a new motor/transaxle assembly. An expensive proposition I'm afraid.

SOURCE: Same problem

If your batteries have ever gone dead, they can show fully charged, then completly discharge very rapidly. Take them to autozone and ask for a "load test". If they don't hold a load, replacement is nessary. [email protected] for more if the batteries pass load test

SOURCE: battery charger indicating that batteries

With a Pride Scooter the charger will turn green if its fully charged and if there is a bad connection in the wiring with the batteries. If you plug in the charger and the light comes on green right away then there is a problem with the wiring or connections. Take a voltmeter and read the voltage at each battery. Fully charged they should be 13-15 volts each. If they are less than 12 volts then they are not charged and the charger is not working correctly. If the batteries are really low like less than 8 volts each then the scooter might not come on at all. If you find that the batteries have at least 12 volts or more then there is a wiring problem from the rear of the scooter to the front tiller. Pride has a habit of developing problems in the harness running from the rear to the tiller. My suggestion is to contact your provider (where you got the scooter) and have them troubleshoot the scooter. If the scooter is less than a year old then it should be under warranty and your provider will have to fix it under warranty. Sorry I don't have a quick fix for you but scooters are notoriously bad to troubleshoot and repair, especially long distance. Hope this helps you

SOURCE: The batteries we put in

The charger from you have indicated is faulty not working properly the needle should not be going back and forth but once in the charging mode should be stable reading and drawing down to 0 slowly as the charge is taking place on the batteries you may wish to replace the on-board charger. In the meantime you can use a trickle charger at home from the wall.

Or a battery charger make sure that it is set to the lowest charge point 6 volts. This will do the same thing as an on-board charger for the scooter. Until you replace the faulty one on the scooter. I would also bring it in and have it checked out as well for a second opinion. They can do a quick test on the unit and maybe it is a simple part replacement and not the whole unit this is how I would deal with it. Thanks for using FixYa! John

  • What that flash code indicates that there is that the battery voltage is to high to operate the scooter. This can happen for a number of reasons and from out of no where. The manual says you should contact GoGo for this problem. But I know a couple things to try and if they do not work then you need to contact GoGo.
  1. First remove the battery connectors for 5 full minutes and see if that resets it.
  2. You may have a wire that got caught up somewhere so check all wires for breaks in the insulation, cracks etx.
  3. Check the fuse as well.
  4. Push in the main circuit breaker reset button (see diagram)

  • Here is the GoGo Pride Scooter website should you need to contact them and if what I listed does not work then you need to. The things I list are some at home troubleshooting tips GoGo does not offer. They say to contact them immediately. http://www.pridemobility.com/contact.asp
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

The torque converter is where OD takes place. Look at your transmission fluid cooler to see if it's blocked. The TCM module controls the OD functions so it may not be sending the correct signals.

I have a SKPE Phillips phone VO1P8411B/37. In an effort to fix the phone I de-registered it. When I select REGISTER, it comes back with 'Registration failed'. I tried to put in the default code of 0000...


Firstly, unplug the base unit, then remove from this base unit the ethernet cable and most importantly, unplug the telephone line! Then remove the batteries from the 2nd handset. Keep everything unplugged for a few minutes, then plug the power into the base unit, wait 1 minute, then plug in the Ethernet cable and wait 5 more minutes. Do NOT plug in the telephone line just yet. After the 5 minute wait, put the batteries back into the 2nd handset and then follow the registration instructions from the manual (copied below)...

Make sure you have configured the language, country code, and area code of your
phone before registering additional handsets.

1. Press "Reg.". Register shall be highlighted.
2. Enter the system PIN (Default: 0000). Use "Clear" to correct typing errors.
3. Press "Enter" to confirm.
• Your handset starts searching for the base.
4. Press the top button on the base unit until the two indications turn off.

• If registration is unsuccessful, the signal icon displays steadily.

TIP: IF REGISTRATION FAILED, REPEAT THE ABOVE PROCEDURE.

Like other methods, you must hold down the button on the base unit until the lights STOP blinking. When you have successfully registered your 2nd handset, then plug in the telephone line into the base station. I did the above and it worked! The trick is to be patient and wait the few minutes while everything resets itself.

Scooter stops intermittenly


Hi. Does the machine stop suddenly, or does it slowly stop as it normally would? Does this happen on hills or slopes?
A lot of scooters have a self-resetting circuit breaker connected to the battery leads. If the machine draws to much current ( amps ) then the circuit breaker trips out. After a few minutes the circuit breaker will reset and you can continue.
This could mean that the circuit breaker is faulty or that the motor is drawing to much current, or is burnt out.
Some machines have a very light duty circuit breaker, and these can trip out often. I have changed many of these circuit breakers for this reason.
Check all your battery leads are secure and tight.
If it is still a problem, get a serviceman to check the motor current is what it should be.
Good luck. Neil.
