Question about Pride Health & Beauty
Hi I have a Pride GoGo ultra (old style) and im having a problem with the 5kohm pot. it was bad so took out and replace with another pot which worked but didnt turn enough to run the throttle (press the forward at max and the thing crawled forward and same back. So i bought another original pot from ebay and installed this but this again just jerks forward and does the 7 beeps. i know there was a resistor on the middle line but need to know what it was but cant find a wiring diagram.

what about the overall connection , start at the handlebars from the speed pot,
Take off the rear cover , first remove the seat, pull the connector one by one and plug back in,
chec kthe connectors around the speed pot , in particualar if there is a circuit board.

All scooters have a protection system built in to prevent burning up the motor, and the user, should the scooter overheat. It sounds like yours overheated. If the temp. outside was warm to hot, and your weight is near the weight limit for the scooter, and you are taxing the motors over a hill, or unstable terrain, then the scooter goes into "limp home mode", or just enough to get you a bit aways, and then it will turn off. After a few minutes to cool off, it will go again, but shut down fairly quickly because it takes a spell to let the whole transaxle-motor assembly to get cool.
Check your weight, and anything else you may be carrying with you on the scooter. Check the terrain, and incline you are going against. Throttle down for all these occassions. If you overloaded the system at some point, then you may have overheated the brushes. Remove them (2) with a standard screwdriver and see if the copper coil is still flexible and springy. If not, replace it/them.
The damage may already be done, so it may need a new motor/transaxle assembly. An expensive proposition I'm afraid.

Hi. This sounds difficult. I have had a few scooters move slowly forward or in reverse, but not both. Normally if the speed pot ( wig wag ) is not exactly in the central position, they can do this.
It is possible for a scooter to have your problem, if the speed lever is binding or rubbing on the housing. Normally the lever is returned to the middle by a spring around the speed pot shaft. If this spring is loose or broken, then this could also cause the problem. Sometimes a small spot of oil or grease will help.
To check the speed lever is in the middle, slowly move the lever for forward untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Now release the lever and slowly pull it for reverse untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Make sure that the speed lever moves the same amount for forward as it does for reverse. If not adjust it with the key off.
If you get the machine to drive properly, then change the controller to see if it is OK.
As for the beeping, a lot of machines will go into an error mode if the speed lever is not in the central position when you turn the key on. This is a safety precausion.
Good luck. Neil.

Hi, Check fuel filter and replace. Check and replace sparkplugs. Check ignition components. coil, wires, distributor for cracks. and then check for codes. Good luck.
