My Mobility Scooter won’t go


As a Mobility Engineer I am often asked

“Why won’t my Scooter move?”

Surprisingly 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!!!

Just follow the the simple checks in order …….NEXT

 

1. Is your scooter connected to the charger


1. Is your scooter connected to the charger

If your scooter is connected to the charger then it will not go.
The reason for this is to prevent you driving off while connected to the charger, which would cause you to rip out the plug / wires.


Remedy

  • Switch off the charger and disconnect it from the scooter
  • Reset the scooter – (switch off and then on)

NEXT

 

 

2. Is your battery charged


2. Is Your Battery Charged

Check the fuel gauge to make sure the gauge is in the green or yellow.

If the gauge is pointing to the red, then your battery requires charging, your scooter can sense this and will not run.


Remedy

  • If you have a scooter that comes apart (a boot scooter), then check the battery is seated correctly on the scooter, or if connected via a lead ensure the plug is fully engaged.
  • Reset the scooter – (switch off and then on)
  • Charge your scooter for at least 12 hours

NEXT

3. Are you in Gear


3. Are You In Gear

Check to ensure you are in gear; get off the scooter and see if you can push the scooter freely. If you can push the scooter then you are in free wheel.


Remedy

  • Move the lever at the back of the scooter to the picture that shows a person sitting on the scooter, or the word “Drive” 
  • Reset the scooter – (switch off and then on)

NEXT

 

5. Are you Connected


5. Are You Connected

If you have a transportable (boot scooter) ensure the rear and front end are joined firmly together and are in line.

Also if there are any plug and sockets used to connect the electrics, check they are in firmly.


Remedy

  • Reconnect the front and back of the scooter
  • Reconnect plugs and sockets
  • Reset the scooter – (switch off and then on)
