V I I I .
Any electromechanical device requires occasional troubleshooting. However, most problems that arise can
usually be solved with a bit of thought and common sense. Many of these problems occur because the
batteries are not fully charged or because the batteries are worn down and can no longer hold a charge.
PROBLEM
All of my scooter systems appear to be "dead."
My scooter's battery condition meter shows a full
charge, but my scooter does not move when I engage
the throttle control lever.
My scooter's main circuit breaker trips repeatedly.
My scooter's battery condition meter dips way down
and the motor surges or hesitates when I engage the
throttle control lever.
If you experience any problems with your scooter that you are not able to solve, immediately contact your
authorised Pride Dealer for information, maintenance and service.
