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

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.

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

Testimonial: "It was the batteries - they needed replacement. Thanks to all who responded!"
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
