Make sure that the manual brake release/freewheel lever is enaged as if it is not, this will allow you to push the scooter, but will not engage the drive motors. It is usually located on the rear of the vehicle; check your owner's manual.
If this does not work, contact the manufacturer for additional troubleshooting.
Good luck!

Trying to reverse polarity to 12 volt bulb sockets 1157 type in order to use LED bulbs in my electric scooter.

all of this work when all you need is the correct LED units
bulbs work which ever way the polarity is and bulb holders (sockets are always positive to the enter with the ground being on the outside)
by reversing the polarity at the battery terminals , other items that require a positive feed only , like the ignition module , converter etc will burn out
Flashers work through a relay and by reversing the polarity the coil used to close the points will not work
Replace all of the units that you have damaged by reversing the polarity and just connect the led 's up as you would a normal bulb
All of the rest is from you very limited knowledge of electrics

Mobility scooter is unresponsive

.good mobility scooter
humm strange
...fitted a new throttle but still no go

any fuses in the system
might need a volt meter to test all the wires voltages and resistance between battery and throttle

info says comes with two batteries
ouch the w/55AH Batteries are about $250
are both batteries holding full charge

I have a Taotao electric scooter not a mobility scooter the scooter is fully charged the lights and horn work fine but when you turn the throttle nothing happens it makes a kind of clicking sound

Not familiar with your particular scooter - but I am well versed with electricity. The issue you're seeing is likely a result of a poor connection somewhere. The amount of power (current in amps) required to operate the horn or lights is a small fraction of that needed to run the motor.

You should trace larger sized wires/cables from the motor back as far as you can - ideally to the battery if possible. Remove, thoroughly clean and reconnect each of these cables under each terminal screw - one at a time. This way you'll know any unconnected cable goes on the only terminal that is removed.

At this point, you should have 100% good connections for all high current loads - including the motor and will probably be able to use the scooter. Placing the battery on a slow trickle charger overnight will help ensure that the battery is fully charged - not just enough to operate the horn or lights.

Good luck!

Horn not working on a honda varadero 125

Use a multi-meter set to dc 12v take the horn out of circuit and connect the positive end to the horn supply from the horn switch and the negative to an earth point on the frame. Press the horn button, do you see the meter jump up to 12v when you do this?

Yes - Replace the horn assembly. It's getting voltage but not sounding.

No - Suspect that the wiring or the horn switch is faulty.

isolate the battery. Disassemble the grip Disconnect the wires to the horn. Set the meter to continuity test. Put the probes on the terminals of the horn switch. press the switch. Do you see the meter on the Multi-meter kick?

Yes - suspect the wiring between the switch and the horn assembly.

No - With the 12V side of the switch isolated from ground reconnect the battery. Switch the multi-meter to DC Volts. Connect the positive probe to the supply side of the switch wire and ground the negative side. Does the meter kick to 12Volts?

Yes - I don't know what is wrong. possibly an intermittent fault.

No - You have no supply form the battery. Suspect the wiring loom from the battery to the switch especially where it goes from the frame to the handlebars. You could have a break there.

Ammeter wiring how do I wire -20/+20 12v gauge to 4 batteries wired in parallel in my caravan ? I have 480w of solar power, 4x120 a/h deep cycle batteries.I run 12v fridge, 12v TV plus lights,pumps,...

4 batteries in parallel equal 480 a/h so if you pull 10 amps as an example it would last 48 hours. To measure current the amp meter would have to be in series with the total output of the four batteries. If you go between the batteries current is divided due to being in parallel Divide the total a/h by the current being drawn to work out the time frame .

Scooter's horn works but the battery is not charging when plugged in.

hi, right first of all, check the charger, check the fuse located in the charger if fitted, best way to test it is to try it on another scooter.

Now if youre sure the charger is working ok look at the charger socket is it a loose fitting if so wiggle it about gently, does the charger accept it charging ? is there a charging light on the scooter ? if so does it change colour when inserted , if not bad charger or charger fitting ? now if you have a multimeter , remove the seat and the cover under that , mind how you do this as it easily to hurt your back, show now you can see the batteries , check the leads to the batteries, have they come loose, now using the meter put a prode on a red terminal and the other lead on the other battery black terminal, now change terminal if no reading until you get about 20 to 25 volts , now inserted the battery charger , has the voltage changed or watch as it will start to rise , give it 20 minutes or so and if nothing changed , it pointing at your charger as having a fault ,even if the batteries are no good it will see show some output, now if the voltage measured on the batteries is lower than 18 Volts depending on scooter it will never move but the horn will still work as that requires only 12V.

Please leave feedback if this helps

I need a schematic for the x-treme scooter

Check the batteries, they need at least 12+volts to run scooter. Blinker may be burned out or the wire came loose. If batteries are charged Two things That could be wrong are: Twist throttle is NO Good, Or the controller is BAD. You need a voltage tester, (Disconnect the Wiring Harnesses) and check voltages coming out of the controller(the silver BOX with lots of wires) and see if it is sending voltage to the twist throttle. Controller wires to the Twist throttle should read 4-5 volts.

(Make Sure You Unplugged That Wiring Harness) There is 4-6 wires in that Wiring Harness then find + and - test them for voltage from that Controller box wiring harness. If You get a positive reading out of that Controller wiring harness then the Twist Throttle thing is bad. If you get NO READING out of that Controller Wiring Harness Then if is BAD. Normally it will be the dead batteries or the Twist Throttle that go bad. Batteries are expensive, Twist Throttle Cheap. Good LUCK
