My scooter won't start when it does it won't go in reverse whenever your going straight it won't slow down and stop you have to coast till it stops Judy Carter.

You have a dangerous situation there, The throttle does not sound like it is attached very well to your lever. When you release the lever and the scooter keeps going! This is not safe. The throttle must be in the center of the throttle pots range. Most throttle pots are 5000 ohms. So the center is 2500 ohms or in neutral. The the throttle lever must be checked for cracks in the middle, which release the pressure of the setscrew on the pot shaft. also the return spring may be broken, which would cause a similar situation. Please check these things or get a tech on this before using this scooter again, for your safety and others safety. Scooter Doctor App

Adjust mobility scooter throttle

hi, sadly you can't in most cases, the speed pot is the way to adjust the overall speed ,

You can fit a larger value speed pot hence slowing the scooter down on the lowest setting ...

if you mean the centre location of the throttle pot you must get the slot dead centre to you( meter reading of about 2.5K ) ...when you 're sitting on the scooter...

6 OONAPU Out Of Neutral At Power Up. The throttle was not in the neutral position
when the scooter was turned on. The scooter does not drive.
• Return the throttle to neutral, turn the power off, and back on again.
• Throttle may need to be adjusted (see section 5.1.6).

How to stop a continuing beep on my Cordoba scooter when I turn the key on? The scooter don't move at all.

Hi Mag,
I have this steps that might help you with beeping sound on your Scooter. Hope it helps.

Possible Cause:
  • This often occurs when the scooter is in free wheel mode and is not in drive mode. Re-Engage the free wheel lever which is located down near the rear wheels (normally a yellow or red lever).
  • If you hear a beeping noise, the beeping you hear is a fault beep indicating the scooter main control box has detected a problem. Contact your dealer who can diagnose the beep code.
  • Check batteries with load tester - If either battery drops more than 1 volt under a load, the battery(s) are bad. Replace "both" batteries.

I also find these additional steps on how to know beep alarm indicators:

This main control box has a self-diagnostics feature & cannot be tested with a volt meter. When a
problem is present the main control box will diagnose the fault, prohibit the scooter from being driven
and sound an alert beep. Each alert beep indicates a different issue which helps to determining the
problem by narrowing the fault into one of a few main areas of the scooter. Reference this information
below for the alert beep indications.

Very Rapid beep- Batteries are low. Charge & test batteries.
Medium Fast beep- Motor/brake wiring fault. Free wheel lever disengaged.
Solid beep- The charger is plugged into the scooter (some models may vary).
Very Slow beep- The throttle pot was not at center when you turned the unit on. Throttle pot off
center or wiring (yellow & orange wires) fault.

I have a Sterling Micro 3 wheeled scooter. When I turn the throttle off the scooter carries on rolling and does not stop like it used to. Anybody know whats gone on my scooter?

Hi, Okay first of all the throttle pot may not be returning to the central position any-more normally this causes a error condition, a bleeping sound, the other thing is the brake is not working correctly , it be worn or not releasing , Do you hear a click when going forward or backwards ?, Some Sterling's work with the brake disconnected so check the wiring.. remember 24v is applied to the electromagnic brake to release the plates allowing you to move, keep me posted please.

Pride Wrangler scooter sometimes bucks and kicks when going up hill.

When your going up this hill is the bucking happening in slow or fast ? I only ask this cause sometimes your throttle arm can get stuck ,Make sure when you give it a command that its doing what it suppose to if it stutters with just a little command or bucks .Your looking at a new throttle potentiometer . This happens because of ware and tear your constantly holding on this throttle arm when your driving going over bumps and what not it tends to put wear on it.Not a uncommon problem.

Hope I was of some help ,Have a good day.

I have a pride scooter that will not run at top speed. When speed control is turned to fastest setting, the scooter goes dead.

hi, first check the speed throttle by moving it in the upwards direction while the speed control is turned fully on, if there is a response to moving the speed pot in up and down direction , you founf the fault, otherwise the speed control is at fault, if thats proves to be okay then its the controller breaking down , check the brushes on the motor.
