I needto replace the battery charger on my Rascal 600F scooter

I need to replace the battery charger on my Rascal 600Fmobility scooter. The original charger has 3 wires coming out, a red "+", a black "-" and a white"(gound maybe?)", at least I assume that is what they are, since the charger is dead, I have no way of testing to know for sure. I do not know what the white wire does.The only 24v chargers I can find only have 2 wires a"+"and a "-", I can see that all 3 wires from the original battery charger run through the digital controller. I do not want to ruin the controller by not having the 3rd wire or hooking up wrong. I bought a new charger because the drawing on the lable showed a 3 prong plug with the 3rd pin as a ground. But when I took the plug apart there was only 2 wires and the 3rd pin was not hooked to anything. Information about where to get the schematics for the scooter or even the original battery charger or how to adapt a 2 wire 24v charger will be appreciated. This is the only mobility scooter I have ever seen that has so little info available.

Hi. Most chargers with only two wires, have a small bridge wire from the
black ( negative ) wire to the middle terminal of the connector. This disables the controller while the machine is charging. The charger will still work without this bridge wire, but the scooter will still operate normally.
There are a few different chargers around that have an internal relay that disables the scooter, but these chargers are normally "on-board" chargers.
Good luck. Neil.

A separate, small power supply at 24v, 24v relay and crimper with plugs would be needed to create a "safety switch." When the charger is plugged in, the controller would be disabled since the relay would "connect" that "mysterious" white wire to -24v output on the new charger.
It's actually a great safety feature, prevents the driver from speeding off while the wheelchair is still plugged in and recharging. Prevents accidents, safety first.

I have a rascal and put new batteries in it and it seems they will not charge up what could be the problem?


Hi Chris,,,, Now lets get the silly question out of the way first, have you tried another charger ?

IS it a built in charger ?


Remember a bad charger == Bad batteries...

the lead that goes from the chagrer socket to the batteries via the controller are most likely adding resistance that the charger does not like ...

How to change batteries in a Rascal


The Rascal 600/300, remove the seat, lift off the cover, unplug a battery, replace the old battery with a new one, putting the cable connections on the same way, red is +, black is -. Do the same with the next battery, reconnect the anderson plugs,reinstall the cover and seat and plug in the charger with the key on watch to see the needle raises up toward the full mark, allow to charge fully, overnight is good. keep the bats charged up not allowing them to drop below half way for the first 20 charges to break in the batteries. as a rule charge the scooter after every use!

Rascal 600


Neil wood, the Rascal 600 DOES use an on board charger. What signal is the white wire looking for to make the scooter move is the question. 28v?

I have a Rascal 600f scooter that seems 2 work okay except both the power meter and charging meter indicates energy loss wrong.As the power is used the meter very very slowly goes down from full charge...


It is pretty common for the meters on the charger to either not work at all, or give an inaccurate reading. They get bounced and dropped, and they aren't that well built to begin with. Basically, just ignore the charger as long as you are getting a full charge out of it, and getting good distance with each charge.
