My Mobility Scooter won’t go


As a Mobility Engineer I am often asked

“Why won’t my Scooter move?”

Mobility Scooter Broken DownSurprisingly in about 80% of cases, just by talking to the owner over the phone and asking them to carry out simple checks, can rectify the problem.

So if your “Mobility Scooter Won’t Go”, follow these simple checks and hopefully you will be among the 80%, and will soon be back on the road!!!

    • Hi Joan,
      So So sorry for not getting back to you, I have not been on the site for months.
      If you have not alredy got thte scooter going, may I sugesst checking the following

      1. is it in drive, i.e. if you can push the scooter along then it ins NOT in drive.To put it in drive there is a leaver at the back of the scooter, with ether a picture of someone pushing the scooter and a picture of somone sitting on the scooter, or the letter “D” and “N”. The leaver should be in the position of the person sitting on the scooter or the”D” position.

      REMEMBER after moving the position of the leaver, switch off the scooter using the key and then switch on again, this will reset the scooter controls.

      2. If the forward / reverse arms (Wigwag) are not at the rest position (parrallel to the handle bars) when you switch on the scooter will not go. This is to pervent the scooter from speeding of as you switch on.
      REMEMBER to switch off the scooter using the key and then switch on again, this will reset the scooter controls.

      3. Is the charger pluged in, if so remove the plug from the scooter and reset the scooter as above.

      I hope this helps and once again sorry for the delay.
      Pete
