You will more than likely need a new speed pot but some are connected to the throttle pot as well so it could be that which is at fault. Could also be wiring or worst case, control box but this is unlikely.

Hi tandseaster,
I have owned my own business for 3 years and have been working on scooters and powerchairs for 15 years. I know exactly what the problem is. I can almost tell you what kind of scooter you have. In the future give as much info about the scooter as possible.
Your problem is the throttle pot or somtime called the engager.
You can do one of two things. 1. Open the faceplate to your tiller. look for a lock nut on the throttle pot. loosen it, on the bottom of the pot is a slot for a flat tip screwdriver. Take the key out before you start this procedure. You can turn the screw slot on the pot a little at a time, one way then the other. Turn the key back on, turn the speed pot to lowest speed so the scooter won't take off on you. Once you align the throttle pot to neutral tighten the lock nut. The easiest way to fix your problem is:
2. Replace the throttle pot.
Your problem will be fixed.

Good Luck

ok so 7 flashes is a speed pot related error, you need to make sure that the speed pot is in the central position , look under the stem and you should see a cross head , now that should be straight not at slight angle, without you touching the throttle lever , if you have a meter disconnect the pot and take a resistance reading, it should show about 2.5K - using the centre tap , if it is a 5K pot fitted , in fact for that controller it should be a 5K pot , please check the terminal connections on the controller, good fitting and clean.
Take leave feedback.
Regards GeWiz.

Pot speed and throttle speed beep code is happening. how to get it going again.?

This is a very typical error code when the throttle potentiometer is out of neutral at start up. This is caused by wear or hitting or bending the throttle lever.
In my experience the best way to adjust the throttle pot is to clean it. I usually replace both the throttle potentiometer and speed potentiometer when they fail, cause an error beep, or they have dead spots. You can carefully remove these components by removing the covers and following the service procedures in the service manual. Very carefully take them apart to clean the wiper on the potentiometer with electronic spray contact cleaner (this is not in the service manual; use extreme care and do it delicately).
You can adjust the spring tension on the throttle potentiometer with careful bending.
You can first try to zero out the throttle pot by hand (even it out) and start the scooter to clear the error code. With your left hand adjust the lever left or right and with your right hand turn the scooter on. By trial and error you may be able to get this to work.
In both circumstances you will wind up replacing both components anyway and the fixes I have described are only temporary. Hope this helps.

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

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.
