Gareth, save your self a lot of aggravation and call a local lock smith, they can fix this problem fairly quickly and replace the key. I do not believe it will be too expensive either. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

A key broke off in the ignition of our handicap motorized scooter

This is a common issue with the travel scooters. It is usually an easy fix without having to replace the key-switch.
You need the following tools:
Good eyesight and / or good glasses to see down inside the key switch. A strong, thin needle. A jewelers flat screwdriver or eyeglass screwdriver.
The broken key inside the switch will have a flat back and a toothed topped. The toothed side moves a series of spring loaded pins inside the lock.
With the switch turned to the off position...
Place the jewelers screwdriver down inside the switch where the key's teeth are, pushing back the spring pins, and getting leverage under one of the teeth to lift the key out.
The needle is used to release friction and back pressure off the key back against the switch housing.
Work it carefully and be patient.
Once the key piece is out try ebay for a replacement if needed.
A common key number for Pride scooters is the A126

Remove broken key from ignition

you might try putting a 'footie' stocking over the end of a vacuum cleaner hose (to catch the part when it comes out) and then pressing the covered end against the keylock hole and the part might just get sucked out

Put in new batteries and scooter will not do anything

It could that your potentiomenter is broken and would need to be replaced. simply removed the housings from both sides to get to the throttle part and check to see if the spring is not broken. if it is broken, simply remove old one and buy new one which should be around 60.00 and up in cost. can go to this website to check

Small bar on tiller to make it go forward and reverse broken so no way to control start and stop. Also, free wheel is broken and scooter moves when in stop mode or key is removed. can I still use it,...

Hi. Are there other faults as well? Maybe you should get another quote from a different technician, or ask him if he has any second hand parts available.
If you use it, and you cant control it, you end up down a bank or under a bus.
What brand and model is it?
Sometimes the brake disc in the brake unit splits and allows the machine roll on. Sometimes the brake lever has had a bump, and just needs to be pushed back into place properly.
Try contacting the authorised service people for this scooter, and get some prices from them. Good luck. Neil.
