Question about Pride Hurricane 4 Wheel Personal Mobility Vehicle PMV
After idle, scooter shudders when starting. Stops after running for a while, but returns each time I start up again. Sometimes I have to turn the key a couple of times to get started and the shuddering starts.
My rascal shudders when I puts key in I turn of then wont start so I press restart button then goes then when I park up it wont start

Extreme Shudder Problem on My Shoprider Was a Dirty Commutator.
Cleaned Commutator With Fine Emory Cloth. I Believe It Can Be Done Through a Brush Guide Rather Than Dissembling The Whole Motor.

Hi, now firstly you need to check all connections fitting all plug connectors, remove one battery lead before proceeding so you don#t accidentally short something ... Now having done that you need to make sure the break is not losing power otherwords coming on, Check the brushes and let me know how you get on ...

Hi Alex. Does this problem happen when you first turn on the scooter, or does it happen while you are riding the scooter.
It might possibly be that the speed lever ( wig wag ), is not correctly adjusted, or is worn.
Test the lever is correctly adjusted by sitting on the machine with the key on. Slowly move the lever in the forward direction, until you hear the brake click. Take note of how far the lever moved. Now move the lever in the reverse direction until you hear the brake unit click. The distance the lever moved, should be the same in both cases.
Also while you are driving your machine try moving the ends of the lever slowly up and down. If this makes the machine change speed erratically, then you probably need a new throttle pot, or speed lever assembly.
Does your machine show any fault codes or flashing LED's.
Hope this helps. Neil.

The Pride Go Go Elite Traveller Plus HD 4 Wheel scooter problem you are describing with 10 fast beeps is that the scooter has "exceeded the push or roll away speed limit" (the scooter service manual is written by an engineer). The second symptom you describe is that you could get the scooter to drive by turning it off and on. By resetting the controller you were able to get the scooter to work for awhile.
This scooter has either an S drive controller or R series controller which has gone bad. By running the serial number you can call the manufacturer and identify which type. The part runs about $500 retail. It may be covered under warranty so it is advisable to call the manufacturer and run the SN first. Pride Mobility Products is at 1 800 800 8586. They can direct you to a local dealer for warranty repair.
While under the rear electronics shroud cover inspecting the controller check for burnt or melted wiring harnesses and connectors and replace those also. The rear cover has velcro attached inserts and well hidden screws that need to be removed first. An experienced tech can do the work in under an hour or you can save some money by doing the repair yourself. If I remember correctly all you need is 2 different size screwdrivers and an open end wrench for the nuts (all metric hardware).
Hope this helps.
