POWER SEAT ADJUSTMENT
Your scooter may be equipped with a power seat. The power seat actuator is designed to raise or lower the
seat with minimal effort on the part of the operator. The power seat switch is located on the control console.
WARNING! The power seat is intended for operation only while your scooter is stationary
and on a level surface. Its purpose is to aid you in reaching objects. Drive your scooter
only with the power seat in the lowest position. Driving the scooter with the power seat
elevated could cause instability in the scooter, resulting in a tip or a fall.
Strict adherence to the following safety rules is vital to your safety:
Operate the power seat only while completely stationary on level ground.
Do not press the throttle control lever and the power seat switch at the same time.
Do not operate your scooter with the power seat elevated. Operate the scooter only
with the power seat fully retracted (in the lowest position).
Never place your scooter in freewheel mode with the power seat elevated.
Use extreme caution when reaching for objects with your power seat elevated. Do
not overextend or attempt to pick up objects that might affect your balance.
Do not attempt to raise or lower the seat while in motion.
Before operating the power seat, ensure your scooter is level and stationary and the speed adjustment dial
is set to the slowest setting.
To operate the power seat:
1. Press and hold the upper part of the power seat switch to raise the seat. Release the switch when you
have attained your desired height or upon reaching the highest position.
2. Press and hold the lower part of the power seat switch to lower the seat. Release the switch when you
have attained your desired height or upon reaching the lowest position.
NOTE: The scooter must be stopped in order for the power seat to be operated. If the power seat switch
is pressed while the scooter is in motion, the scooter will slow and come to a stop. The scooter may also
produce a fault code. If a fault code occurs, you will need to turn the scooter's power off, then back on
again before proceeding.
Instances may occur when the power seat is raised to reach something or get a better vantage point and not
returned to its lowest position before operating the scooter again. Depending on how high the power seat
is raised, your scooter's speed will be reduced when operating the scooter.
Elevating the power seat to approximately one-half its maximum height limits your scooter's speed to half
that set with the speed adjustment dial. If the power seat is elevated to approximately three-quarters its
maximum height, the scooter will not move if the throttle control lever is pressed. The power seat must be
lowered to slightly under three-quarters of its maximum height in order to drive the scooter agian. The
scooter cannot be driven at full speed until the scooter's seat is lowered to approximately one-half its
maximum height.
It is strongly recommended that the scooter not be operated with the power seat elevated.
