When it comes to electric scooters, you will find that there are many aspects
that all come together to provide top performance. Fuses and wires are an
important part of your scooter, making it run and operate correctly. If you
find the scooter cuts out while operating or you have trouble with the lights,
horn, and so on, a fuse probably needs to be replaced or wiring needs to be fixed.
If a fuse is blown out on your scooter, you can run some quick diagnostics to
determine the exact problem. For sake of example, let us say you have a Currie
scooter or an Electro Drive bicycle system. You need to run through some steps
and ask yourself specific questions.
Always remember that if you have blown fuses, this means there is something
seriously wrong and that you should not ride the scooter or bike until the problem
is fixed. While you could simply put a new fuse in, this does not prevent more
failures nor does it fix the problem that is blowing the fuse in the first place.
Keep in mind that while running diagnostic tests, more than likely you will blow a
fuse or two. Therefore, before you get started, make sure you have several fuses
handy. For the Currie scooters and bicycles, the 40-A fuses are somewhat hard to
find. You will probably have better luck finding these fuses in a car audio store
over an automobile parts store.
- Are the fuses in your battery box blowing even when not connected to anything?
If so, the battery box is bad. If not, you should try connecting the battery
box to the motor / throttle and then turn the battery box on again to see if
another fuse is blown. If yes, you need to disconnect the battery box and hook
up an alternate 24-volt source with the fuse.
- When using the alternative 24-volt source, is the fuse blowing? If it is,
then the motor / controller are bad. If not, you need to check the original
battery wiring to ensure there is no exposed wiring.
You also need to check the electric connections for corrosion, particularly at the
battery terminals. If you find corrosion, use No-ox, Ox-guard, or some other
cleaner on the market. These products are similar to Vaseline that has been mixed
with graphite. Not only do they clean the corrosion, but also they add protection
against future corrosion. If you cannot find these products, you could use
