After a fault has accorded with the scooter and you have reset the fault. Turn off the scooter with the key and count to 10 then switch on again. This will reset the fault in the system. If still have fault, try moving the lever in and out a few times in case the brake micro switch does not make circuit properly.

SOURCE: need to change mobility scooter controls back to right handed

Open up the front shroud (unhook batteries first) and switch the wires going to the throttle pod, its just 2 thin wires and if they were switched already you will probably be able to switch them back. The throttle pod is what the thumb throttle lever is hooked up to.

SOURCE: Pride Celibrity 3 wheel electric scooter. The motor isn't working

the click is the electric brakes releasing , most likly the problem you are having is the brushes in the motor may be shot cheap easy fix on each side of the motor there should be what looks like a flat head screw those are the brush covers remove them and check them replace as need , otherwise the motor may be shot

SOURCE: i have a pride celebrity dx sport that the battery

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.

Cant start my Celebrity X scooter. Seems to drop into free wheel on power demand.

Are there any fault codes? if so check your manual. Is the speed setting turned down low?. The click is the brake releasing so that's ok. Motor brushes may need attention.

Turn the key switch off then move the lever to the drive position , turn it back on and it should run fine. The freewheel lever is sticking up through the plastic cowl.

Pride Celebrity 3 wheel. The free wheel lever

My Mother buggy does the same and you can damage the gearbox, so I use a elastic try down to the bumper this stops it from moving but should there be a need I can remove it.

the Freewhel mech may have come loose so check it out.
