What brand scooter?

Universal... | Answered on Apr 14, 2016

Hi,firstly it could be a worn throttle pot , incorrect values being received by the controller..

Secondly , the brake could be sticking hence the delay then movement and that would affect you in both directions...

For the brake i suggest you spray some contact cleaner or WD40 but remember you're lubricating the brake so take care when testing as it may still move when you stop...

Here is a website where there is discussion on battery sizes - see table at the bottom
I could not find any information about the scooter you referred to except with regard to battery sales, i.e., plenty of info about batteries but none on the battery compartment size from eg the manufacturer. Having said that there seem to be plenty of companies [in the US] which would sell you a battery for your Universal Fortress Scooters Champion Scooter Winner Wheel. Is this it ? But some say Group 22NF, 12V 55Ah, which isn't in agreement with the table given in the ref above, and one gave battery dimensions that weren't even in that table (the battery was taller than any in the table at 9.13" It may be that this isn't the correct model of scooter (it is a Winner Wheel model which you do not mention), or that the battery compartment in your model is in fact high (deep) enough to accommodate such a battery. Maybe I could be of more assistance if you checked the manufacturer of the scooter, and the (separate) model name/number, and gave details of the current batteries in the scooter, and measured the battery compartment dimensions. You might try searching the internet for suitable batteries; you would be in a better position to visually see whether something was right than I am, perhaps. It also depends on which country you are in.

The blinking light is a fault code. The light will blink a series of blinks and then pause. To better answer your question you will need to know the fault code the scooter is giving

The Drive Dart has a computer based controller that performs a Power On Self Test (POST) of the scooter, its wiring and components. Please count the number of flashes as this flash code tells you where to look to solve the POST problem.
The manual can be found here:

Contact the manufacturer/distributor to inquire.

The 5-beeps indicates you are in free-wheeling mode. If the free-wheeling brake disengage lever is in the correct position then you likely have a bad brake switch or bad brake coil assembly.
Verify free wheel lever is in correct position and Replace the bad component if necessary.
