In the event a fuse should cease to work:
1. Remove the fuse by pulling it out of its slot.
2. Examine the fuse to be sure it is blown. See figures 24 and 24A.
3. Insert a new fuse of the same rating.
WARNING! The replacement fuse must exactly match the rating of the fuse being
replaced. Failure to use properly rated fuses may cause damage to the electrical system.

The brake pads on your scooter should be inspected periodicly for wear. Once the pads reach 2 mm or
1/8-th of an inch in thickness, they should be replaced. All brake pads should be replaced at the same
time. Contact your authorised Pride Dealer for more information on replacing the brake pads.
NYLON LOCK NUT REPLACEMENT
Any nylon insert lock nut removed during the periodic maintenance, assembly or disassembly of the
scooter must be replaced with a new nut. Nylon insert lock nuts should not be reused as it may cause
damage to the nylon insert, resulting in a less secure fit. Replacement nylon insert lock nuts are available
at local hardware stores or through your authorised Pride Dealer.
STORING YOUR SCOOTER
If you plan on not using your scooter for an extended period of time, it is best to:
Fully charge its batteries prior to storage.
Disconnect the batteries from the scooter.
Store your scooter in a warm, dry environment.
Avoid storing your scooter where it will be exposed to temperature extremes.
WARNING! Always protect batteries from freezing temperatures and never charge a fro-
zen battery. Charging a frozen battery can result in damage to the battery.
Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged, stored in extreme temperatures or
stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable performance and limited
service life. It is recommended that you charge the scooter batteries periodically throughout periods of
prolonged storage to ensure proper performance.
You may wish to place several boards under the frame of your scooter to raise it off of the ground during
periods of prolonged storage. This takes the weight off the tyres and reduces the possibility of flat spots
developing on the areas of the tyres contacting the ground.
DISPOSAL OF YOUR SCOOTER
Your scooter must be disposed of according to applicable local and national statutory regulations. Contact
your local waste disposal agency or authorised Pride Dealer for information on proper disposal of packag-
ing, metal frame components, plastic components, electronics, batteries, neoprene, silicone and polyure-
