SAFETY
GENERAL
MANDATORY! Do not operate your new scooter for the first time without completely reading
and understanding this owner’s manual.
Your scooter is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to increase mobility. Pride provides an extensive variety of products to best fit the individual needs of the scooter user. Please be aware that the final selection
and purchasing decision regarding the type of scooter to be used is the responsibility of the scooter user who is
capable of making such a decision and his/her healthcare professional (i.e., medical doctor, physical therapist, etc.).
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has properly fitted the
scooter to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorized Pride Provider in
the instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the scooter user will need to practice
operating the scooter in the presence of a trained attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as a family member
or care professional specially trained in assisting a scooter user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your scooter during daily activities, you will probably encounter situations in which you will
need some practice. Simply take your time and you will soon be in full and confident control as you maneuver
through doorways, on and off elevators, up and down ramps, and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips, and other safety considerations that will help the user become accustomed to
operating the scooter safely.
MODIFICATIONS
Pride has designed and engineered your scooter to provide maximum mobility and utility. A wide range of accessories is available from your authorized Pride Provider to further customize your scooter to better suit your needs
and/or preferences. However, under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove, or disable any feature,
part, or function of your scooter.
WARNING! Do not modify your scooter in any way not authorized by Pride. Unauthorized
modifications may result in personal injury and/or damage to your scooter.
REMOVABLE PARTS
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move your scooter by any of its removable parts.
Personal injury and damage to the scooter may result.

SAFETY
PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECK
Get to know the feel of your scooter and its capabilities. Pride recommends that you perform a safety check before
each use to make sure your scooter operates smoothly and safely.
Perform the following inspections prior to using your scooter:
! Check for proper tire inflation (if equipped with pneumatic tires).
! Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
! Check all harness connections. Make sure they are secured properly.
! Check the brakes.
! Check battery charge.
If you discover a problem, contact your authorized Pride Provider for assistance.
TIRE INFLATION
If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic tires, you should check or have the air pressure checked regularly.
Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tires and help ensure the smooth operation of your scooter.
WARNING! It is critically important that 30-35 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic
tires at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in
loss of control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tire pressure
in pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure, causing serious
personal injury and/or damage to your scooter.
WARNING! Inflate your scooter tires from a regulated air source with an available pressure
gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting
in a burst tire and/or personal injury.
WEIGHT LIMITATIONS
Your scooter is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Refer to the specifications table for information.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight capacity voids your warranty and may result in personal
injury and damage to your scooter. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or
property damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your scooter. Carrying passengers may result in
personal injury and/or property damage.
INCLINE INFORMATION
More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination, designed for easy and safe access.
Some ramps may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills on
your scooter.
! Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
! Take wide swings with your scooter around any tight corners. If you do that, the scooter’s rear wheels will
follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short, and not bump into or get hung up on any railing corners.
! When driving down a ramp, keep the scooter’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to ensure a
safely controlled descent.
! Avoid sudden stops and starts.

II.
SAFETY
When climbing an incline, try to keep your scooter moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly, and then
accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, do so by setting the speed adjustment dial to the slowest
setting and driving in the forward direction only. If your scooter starts to move down the incline faster than you
anticipated or desired, allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the throttle control lever. Then push the
throttle control lever forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the
incline. Drive your scooter straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility of a
tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
WARNING! Do not drive your scooter across the side of an incline or diagonally up or down
an incline; do not stop, if possible, while driving up or down an incline.
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e., areas
covered with snow, ice, cut grass, or wet leaves).
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the scooter in freewheel
mode while seated on it or standing next to it.
WARNING! Even though your scooter is capable of climbing slopes greater than those
illustrated in figures 1, 1A, and 1B do not, under any circumstances, exceed the incline
guidelines or any other specifications presented in this manual. Doing so could cause
instability in your scooter, resulting in personal injury and/or damage to your scooter.
Handicap public access ramps are not subject to government regulation in all countries, and therefore do not
necessarily share the same standard percent of slope. Other inclines may be natural or, if man-made, not designed
specifically for scooters. Figures 1, 1A and 1B illustrate your scooter’s stability and its ability to climb grades under
various weight loads and under controlled testing conditions.
These tests were conducted with the scooter’s seat in the highest position and adjusted rearward on the seat base
to its farthest rearward position. Use this information as a guideline. Your scooter’s ability to travel up inclines is
affected by your weight, your scooter’s speed, your angle of approach to the incline, and your scooter setup.

SAFETY
When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See figures 2 and 2A. This shifts the center of gravity of
you and your scooter toward the front of the scooter for improved stability.
NOTE: When negotiating ramps, if the throttle control lever is released while moving forward, the
powered scooter may "rollback" approximately 1 foot before the brake engages. If the throttle control
lever is released while moving in reverse, the powered scooter may "rollback" approximately one meter
3 feet before the brake engages.
Figure 2. Normal Driving Position
Figure 2A. Increased Stability Driving Position
CORNERING INFORMATION
Excessively high cornering speeds can create the possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility of
tipping include, but are not limited to, cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road
surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as passing from
a grassy area to a paved area – especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt directional changes. High
cornering speeds are not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a corner, reduce your speed and
steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your scooter from tipping.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed. When using your scooter at higher
speeds, do not corner sharply. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. To avoid
personal injury or property damage, always exercise common sense when cornering.
BRAKING INFORMATION
Your scooter is equipped with these powerful brake systems:
! Regenerative: Uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the throttle control lever returns to the center/
stop position.
! Disc Park Brake: Activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop, or when
power is removed from the system for any reason.

SAFETY
OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES
Your scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level surfaces composed of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt. However, Pride recognizes that there will be times when you will encounter other surface types. For this reason, your scooter is designed to perform admirably on packed soil, grass, and
gravel. Feel free to use your scooter safely on lawns and in park areas.
!
!
!
!
Reduce your scooter’s speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
Avoid tall grass that can become tangled in the running gear.
Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
PUBLIC STREETS AND ROADWAYS
WARNING! You should not operate your scooter on public streets and roadways. Be aware
that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your scooter. Obey all
local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of traffic, and then proceed with
extreme caution.
NOTE: Safety accessories like fluorescent flags are available to order from your authorized
Pride Provider.
STATIONARY OBSTACLES (STEPS, CURBS, ETC.)
WARNING! Do not drive near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges, and/or drop-offs (curbs,
porches, stairs, etc.).
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter climb or descend an obstacle that is
inordinately high. Serious personal injury and/or damage may result.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter proceed backward down any step, curb, or
other obstacle. This may cause the scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Be sure your scooter is traveling perpendicular to any curb you may be required
to ascend or descend. See figures 3 and 3A.
WARNING! Do not attempt to negotiate a curb that has a height greater than 2 in.

SAFETY
INCLEMENT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS
WARNING! Pride recommends that you do not operate your scooter in icy or slippery
conditions or on salted surfaces (i.e., walks or roads). Such use may result in an accident,
personal injury, or adversely affect the performance and safety of your scooter.
WARNING! Do not operate or store your scooter where it may be exposed to inclement
weather conditions such as rain, snow, mist, and below freezing temperatures (such as
storage on an outside car/van lift). Attempting to operate the scooter in such conditions
can damage the electronics and potentially result in loss of control.
FREEWHEEL MODE
Your scooter is equipped with a manual freewheel lever that, when pushed forward, allows the scooter to be pushed.
For more information about how to place your scooter into and out of freewheel mode, see V. “Your Scooter.”
WARNING! When your scooter is in freewheel mode, the braking system is disengaged.
! Disengage the drive motors only on a level surface.
! Ensure the key is removed from the key switch.
! Stand behind the scooter to engage or disengage freewheel mode. Never sit on a
scooter to do this.
! After you have finished pushing your scooter, always return it to the drive mode to lock
the brakes.
Failure to heed the above could result in personal injury and/or damage to your scooter.
An added feature built into the scooter is “push-too-fast” protection which safeguards the scooter against gaining
excessive speed while in freewheel mode.
“Push-too-fast” operates differently depending on which of two conditions exists:
! If the key is removed from the key switch while in freewheel mode, the scooter’s controller activates regenerative braking when the scooter is pushed faster than a maximum threshold which has been preprogrammed. In
this case, the controller is acting as a speed governor.
! If the key is inserted into the key switch while in freewheel mode, you will encounter considerable resistance at
any speed. This prevents the scooter from gaining unwanted momentum should the manual freewheel lever
inadvertently be released while driving the scooter.
STAIRS AND ESCALATORS
Scooters are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use an elevator.
WARNING! Do not use your scooter to negotiate steps or escalators. You may cause injury
to yourself and to others and/or damage your scooter.

SAFETY
DOORS
! Determine if the door opens toward or away from you.
! Use your hand to turn the knob or push the handle or push-bar.
! Drive your scooter gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your scooter gently and slowly
backwards to pull the door open.
ELEVATORS
Modern elevators have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the door(s).
! If you are in the doorway of a elevator when the door(s) begin to close, push on the rubber door edge or allow
the rubber door edge to contact the scooter and the door will reopen.
! Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or scooter accessories do not become caught in elevator doors.
LIFT/ELEVATION PRODUCTS
If you will be traveling with your scooter, you may find it necessary to use a lift/elevation product to aid in transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the instructions, specifications, and safety information set forth
by the manufacturer of the lift/elevation product before using that product.
BATTERIES
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information.
WARNING! Scooter batteries are heavy (refer to specifications table). Lifting weight
beyond your capacity could result in personal injury. If necessary, get someone physically
able to lift the scooter batteries for you.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds. Wash hands after handling.
WARNING! Always protect the batteries from freezing and never charge a frozen battery.
Charging a frozen battery may result in personal injury and/or damage to the battery.
WARNING! RED (+) cables must be connected to positive (+) battery terminals/posts. BLACK
(-) cables must be connected to negative (-) battery terminals/posts. Failure to connect
your battery cables and harnesses in the proper manner may result in personal injury and/
or damage to your scooter. REPLACE cables immediately if damaged.
BATTERY DISPOSAL AND RECYCLING
If you encounter a damaged or cracked battery, immediately enclose it in a plastic bag and call your authorized
Pride Provider for instructions on disposal. Your authorized Pride Provider will also have the necessary information on battery recycling, which is our recommended course of action.

SAFETY
MOTOR VEHICLE TRANSPORT
Currently, there are no standards approved for tie-down systems in a moving vehicle of any type to transport a
person while seated in a scooter.
Although your scooter may be equipped with a positioning belt, this belt is not designed to provide proper restraint
during motor vehicle transport. Anyone traveling in a motor vehicle should be properly secured in the motor vehicle
seat with safety belts fastened securely.
WARNING! Do not sit on your scooter while it is in a moving vehicle. Personal injury and/or
property damage may result.
WARNING! Always be sure your scooter and its batteries are properly secured when it is being
transported. Failure to do so may result in personal injury and/or damage to your scooter.
PREVENTING UNINTENDED MOVEMENT
WARNING! If you anticipate being seated in a stationary position for an extended period
of time, turn off the power. This will prevent unexpected motion from inadvertent throttle
control lever contact. Failure to do so may result in personal injury.
GETTING ONTO AND OFF OF YOUR SCOOTER
Getting onto and off of your scooter requires a good sense of balance. Please observe the following safety tips
when getting onto and off of your scooter:
! Remove the key from the key switch.
! Ensure that your scooter is not in freewheel mode. See V. “Your Scooter.”
! Make certain that the seat is locked into place.
! The armrests of the seat can be flipped up to make getting onto and off of the scooter easier.
WARNING! When driving on level ground, position yourself as far back as possible in the
scooter seat to prevent the scooter from tipping and causing injury.
WARNING! Avoid using your armrests for weight bearing purposes. Such use may cause
the scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the floorboard. Such use may cause the
scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
REACHING AND BENDING
Avoid reaching or bending while driving your scooter. When reaching, bending, or leaning while seated on your
scooter, it is important to maintain a stable center of gravity and keep the scooter from tipping. Pride recommends
that the scooter user determine his/her personal limitations and practice bending and reaching in the presence of a
qualified healthcare professional.
WARNING! Do not bend, lean, or reach for objects if you have to pick them up from the
floor. Movements such as these may change your center of gravity and the weight
distribution of the scooter and cause your scooter to tip, possibly resulting in personal
injury.
WARNING! Prevent personal injury, keep your hands away from the tires when driving. Be
aware that loose fitting clothing can become caught in drive tires.

SAFETY
POSITIONING BELTS
Your authorized Pride Provider, therapist(s), and other healthcare professionals are responsible for determining
your requirement for a positioning belt in order to operate your scooter safely.
WARNING! If you require a positioning belt to safely operate your scooter, make sure it is
fastened securely. Serious personal injury may result if you fall from the scooter.
PRESCRIPTION DRUGS/PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS
The scooter user must exercise care and common sense when operating his/her scooter. This includes awareness of
safety issues when taking prescribed or over-the-counter drugs or when the user has specific physical limitations.
WARNING! Consult your physician if you are taking prescribed or over-the-counter
medication or if you have certain physical limitations. Some medications and limitations
may impair your ability to operate your scooter in a safe manner.
ALCOHOL
The scooter user must exercise care and common sense when operating his/her scooter. This includes awareness
of safety issues while under the influence of alcohol.
WARNING! Do not operate your scooter while you are under the influence of alcohol, as
this may impair your ability to drive safely.

EMI/RFI
ELECTROMAGNETIC AND RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE (EMI/RFI)
WARNING! Laboratory tests have shown that electromagnetic and radio frequency waves
can have an adverse affect on the performance of electrically-powered mobility vehicles.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference can come from sources such as cellular phones, mobile twoway radios (such as walkie-talkies), radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless
computer links, microwave signals, paging transmitters and medium-range mobile transceivers used by emergency
vehicles. In some cases, these waves can cause unintended movement or damage to the control system. Every
electrically-powered mobility vehicle has an immunity (or resistance) to EMI. The higher the immunity level, the
greater the protection against EMI. This product has been tested and has passed at an immunity level of 20 V/M.
WARNING! Be aware that cell phones, two-way radios, laptops, and other types of radio
transmitters may cause unintended movement of your electrically-powered mobility vehicle
due to EMI. Exercise caution when using any of these items while operating your mobility
vehicle and avoid coming into close proximity of radio and TV stations.
WARNING! The addition of accessories or components to the electrically-powered mobility
vehicle can increase the susceptibility of the vehicle to EMI. Do not modify your scooter in
any way not authorised by Pride.
WARNING! The electrically-powered mobility vehicle itself can disturb the performance
of other electrical devices located nearby, such as alarm systems.
NOTE: For further information on EMI/RFI, visit the Resource Center on www.pridemobility.com. If
unintended motion or brake release occurs, turn your scooter off as soon as it is safe to do so. Contact
your authorized Pride Provider to report the incident.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
How does the charger work?
When your scooter’s battery voltage is low the charger works harder, sending more electrical current to the
batteries to bring up their charge. As the voltage approaches full charge, the charger sends less and less electrical
current to the batteries. When the batteries are fully charged, the current sent by the charger is at nearly zero
amperage. Therefore, when the charger is plugged in, it maintains the charge on your scooter’s batteries, but does
not overcharge them. We do not recommend that you charge your scooter’s batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.
What if my scooter’s batteries won’t charge?
! Ensure that both ends of the charger power cord are inserted fully.
! Ensure that both battery packs are seated into the battery wells properly.
! Ensure that the charger is turned on at the toggle switch located on the side of the off-board charger.
! Check the charger fuse located inside the right battery pack. The fuse is attached to the wire leading from
the charger power cord receptacle.
How often must I charge the batteries?
Two major factors must be considered when deciding how often to charge your scooter’s batteries:
! All day scooter use on a daily basis.
! Infrequent or sporadic scooter use.
With these considerations in mind, you can determine how often and for how long you should charge your scooter’s
batteries. We designed the charger so that it will not overcharge your scooter’s batteries. However, you may
encounter some problems if you do not charge your batteries often enough and if you do not charge them on a
regular basis. Following the guidelines below will provide safe and reliable battery operation and charging.
! If you use your scooter daily, charge its batteries as soon as you finish using it for the day. Your scooter will be ready
each morning to give you a full day of service. We recommend that you charge your scooter’s batteries for 8 to 14
hours after daily use.
! If you use your scooter once a week or less, charge its batteries at least once a week for 12 to 14 hours at a time.
! Keep your scooter’s batteries fully charged.
! Avoid deeply discharging your scooter’s batteries.
! Do not charge your scooter’s batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.
How can I get maximum range or distance per charge?
Rarely will you have ideal driving conditions—smooth, flat, hard driving surfaces with no wind or curves. Often, you will
face hills, pavement cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, curves, and wind, all of which affect the distance or
running time per battery charge. Below are a few suggestions for obtaining the maximum range per battery charge.
! Always fully charge your scooter’s batteries prior to daily use.
! If equipped with pneumatic tires, maintain 30-35 psi in each tire.
! Plan your route ahead to avoid as many hills, cracked, broken, or soft surfaces as possible.
! Limit your baggage weight to essential items.
! Try to maintain an even speed while your scooter is in motion.
! Avoid stop-and-go driving.

What type and size of battery should I use?
We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both AGM and Gel-Cell are deepcycle batteries that are similar in performance. Do not use wet-cell batteries, which have removable caps.
WARNING! Corrosive chemicals are contained in batteries. Use only AGM or Gel-Cell
batteries to reduce the risk of leakage or explosive conditions.
NOTE: Sealed batteries are not serviceable. Do not remove the caps.
To change a battery in your scooter:
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds. Wash hands after handling.
1. Remove the seat.
2. Remove the battery packs from the scooter. Always remove the left side battery pack first. See IX. “Disassembly and Assembly.”
3. Remove the 7 screws from the underside of the pack.
4. Arrange the pack so the handle is facing up and slowly remove the cover and situate it as shown in figure 9.
5. Disconnect the battery cables from the battery terminals by removing the nut and bolt from each terminal.
6. Remove the old battery.
7. Place a new battery into the battery pack.
8. Connect the red battery cable to the positive (+) battery terminal.
9. Connect the black battery cable to the negative (-)
battery terminal.

Why do my new batteries seem weak?
Deep-cycle batteries employ a different chemical technology than that used in car batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries (nicads), and other common battery types. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power,
drain down their charge, and then accept a relatively quick recharge.
We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide batteries that best suit your scooter’s specific electrical
demands. Fresh batteries arrive daily at Pride and are shipped fully charged to our customers. During shipping, the
batteries may encounter temperature extremes that can influence their initial performance. Heat diminishes the
charge on the battery; cold slows the available power and extends the time needed to recharge the battery.
It may take a few days for the temperature of your scooter’s batteries to stabilize and adjust to their new room or
ambient temperature.
More importantly, it takes a few charging cycles (partial draining followed by full recharging) to establish the critical
chemical balance that is essential to a deep-cycle battery’s peak performance and long life.
Follow these steps to properly break in your scooter’s new batteries for maximum efficiency and service life.
1. Fully recharge any new battery prior to its initial use. This charging cycle brings the battery up to about 88% of
its peak performance level.
2. Operate your new scooter in familiar and safe areas. Drive slowly at first, and do not travel too far from your
home or familiar surroundings until you have become accustomed to your scooter’s controls and have properly
broken in your scooter’s batteries.
3. Fully recharge the batteries. They should be at over 90% of their peak performance level.
4. Operate your scooter again.
5. Fully recharge the batteries again.
6. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries are able to receive a charge of 100% of their peak performance
level and are able to last for an extended period of time.
What about public transportation?
If you intend to use public transportation with your scooter, you must contact the transportation provider in advance to determine their specific requirements.

! If equipped with pneumatic tires, always maintain a proper 30-35 psi tire pressure.
WARNING! It is important that 30-35 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic tires at
all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of
control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tire pressure in
pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure, causing serious personal
injury and/or damage to your scooter.
! Regularly inspect your scooter’s tires for signs of wear.
EXTERIOR SURFACES
Bumpers and tires can benefit from an occasional application of a rubber or vinyl conditioner.
WARNING! Do not use a rubber or vinyl conditioner on the scooter’s vinyl seat or tire tread.
They will become dangerously slippery and result in personal injury and/or damage to
your scooter.
BATTERY TERMINAL CONNECTIONS
! Make certain that the terminal connections remain tight and uncorroded.
! The batteries must sit flat in the battery wells.
WIRING HARNESSES
! Regularly check all wiring connections.
! Regularly check all wiring insulation, including the charger power cord, for wear or damage.
! Have your authorized Pride Provider repair or replace any damaged connector, connection, or insulation that
you find before using your scooter again.
ABS PLASTIC SHROUDS
! The front tiller shroud, front shroud, and the rear shroud are formed from durable ABS plastic and are coated
with an advanced formula urethane paint.
! A light application of car wax will help the shrouds retain their high gloss.
AXLE BEARINGS AND THE MOTOR/TRANSAXLE ASSEMBLY
These items are all prelubricated, sealed, and require no subsequent lubrication.
MOTOR BRUSHES
The motor brushes are housed inside of the motor/transaxle assembly. They should be inspected periodically for
wear by your authorized Pride Provider.

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
CONSOLE AND REAR ELECTRONICS
! Keep these areas free of moisture.
! Allow these areas to dry thoroughly if they have been exposed to moisture before operating your scooter again.
FUSE REPLACEMENT
In the event a fuse should cease to work:
1. Remove the fuse by pulling it out of its slot.
2. Examine the fuse to be sure it is blown. See figures 21 and 21A.
3. Insert a new fuse of the proper rating.
Figure 21A. Blown Fuse (Replace)
Figure 21. Working Fuse
WARNING! The replacement fuse must exactly match the rating of the new fuse. Failure
to use properly rated fuses may cause damage to the electrical system and may result in
personal injury.
LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT
The scooter’s light bulbs are easily replaceable. Do not use regular automotive-type 12-volt light bulbs; your
scooter is equipped with a 24-volt electrical system. Replacement light bulbs can be purchased from your authorized
Pride Provider.
NOTE: Use only 24-volt light bulbs.

Remove the light cover.
Gently remove the bulb by pulling it straight out.
Insert a new bulb of the same wattage.
Replace the light cover.
STORING YOUR SCOOTER
If you plan on not using your scooter for an extended period of time, it is best to:
! Fully charge its batteries prior to storage.
! Remove the battery packs from the scooter.
! Store your scooter in a warm, dry environment.
! Avoid storing your scooter where it will be exposed to temperature extremes.
WARNING! Always protect batteries from freezing temperatures and never charge a frozen
battery. This damages the battery and can cause personal injury.
For prolonged storage, you may wish to place several boards under the frame of your scooter to raise it off of the
ground. This takes the weight off the tires and reduces the possibility of flat spots developing on the areas of the
tires contacting the ground.
