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

 

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

4. Is your Wig-Wag Clear


4. Is Your Wig Wag Clear

The Wig Wag is the bar you press to go forward or reverse. It must be in the rest position before you switch on the Mobility Scooter.


Remedy

  • Remove any bags from the handle bars
  • Ensure the Wig Wag is at the rest position ( parallel to the handlebars)
  • Reset the scooter – (switch off and then on)

6. Is your Battery Faulty


6. Is Your Battery Faulty

If your fuel gauge is pointing to the green area; but when you move the Wig Wag (forward / reverse lever) the gauge points to the red or goes fully to the left, and then you let go of the Wig Wag and the gauge goes slowly back into the green again.

The chances are your battery is faulty


Remedy

  • Try charging your batter for at least 12 hours then test your scooter again
  • If this is not successful, then contact your mobility shop
