Question about Pride Mobility Victory 3 Wheel Electric Scooter

1 Answer

I have a Pride Legnd..the scooter started loseing speed, I would adj the speed pot and the unit would stop, adjust back down and unit would run, but slow. I left the speed speed controller alone and unit kept getting slower and slower then stopped altogether. I routinely charge the batteries and did so all night before unit quite. Meter shows full charge and now unit will not move, I used to hear a relay click in whenever I would go forward/backward, I mno longer hear this as well, I am sure the batteries are good, only 4 years on them but 10 years on the scooter and this is my 1st problem other than new batteries. any ideas????

    With the speed knob turned to high speed it switches of the power light if you turn it counter clock wise slowly then at 3/4 travel it brings the power light back on scoter moves but much slower than usual is it the speed control pot that is at fault

Hi, first you need to check the connections to the batteries then to the motor controller, and don't dismiss the speed pot, disconnect the speed pot and try a normal 5K pot inplace of it, if the scooters responds you find the problem just a case of getting the right speed pot. Check the freewheel switch, normally it located on the motor side.

Go Go Scooter travels in reverse, but when going forward it comes to an abrupt stop every few seconds. Everything else appears to work normally. Any ideas?


csr4 Well it could be the throttle pot or the speed control pot My leanings is toward the throttle pot since it works in reverse with the speed pot not being changed but not forward. when you are just changing the position of the throttle to forward thereby changing the pot wiper and getting the error. Contact Pride about the problem at 1-800-800-8586 and ask for Tech support for scooters and explain your problem to them. I hope this helps

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.

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.

Sounds like you have a bad throttle pot. You`ll need to check the resistance on it or take it to a dealer.
