Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn the ignition key to the "Off" position. Locate the battery. Depending on the make and model of your scooter, you may find the battery under the seat or under a panel on the floorboard.

  2. 2

    Plug the battery charger into an electrical socket. Connect the battery charger's red wire to the positive (+) battery terminal. Connect the black lead wire to the negative (-) terminal. If you connect the charger to the battery incorrectly, the scooter will not receive a charge.

  3. 3

    Examine two indicator lights on the charger. A green indicator shows the battery charging; a solid red light shows the charger receiving power. A dim or flashing red light indicates an disruption in power. Press the "Reset" button to restore power to the charger.

  4. 4

    Replace a battery that does not hold a charge. After one year of use, a battery may become defective, warns Pride Mobility.

Tips and warnings

  • Use only the manufacturer-approved charger to charge the battery.
