ELECTRIC SCOOTER DIAGNOSIS
Troubleshooting made easy
People call us " The Pros " but
anyone can diagnose electric scooter problems with a few homemade
jumpers, multimeter and spare parts. We invested in logic probes, motor
testers, battery analyzers, scooter repair and user manuals but it
didn't take long to figure out there were fewer than seven parts to
choose from to replace for any given problem and through the process of
deduction it could usually be narrowed down to two or less.
Walk into our shop today and ask to see our inventory of test
equipment and we will show you a multimeter and a dozen or so jumpers
and parts (we do have a few parts ) . We simply ask the customer a
question or two , make a visual diagnosis and plug in the part in
question . If that dose not solve the problem we plug up another
part , by doing so we know the last part we plugged up is good .
Example : Joe asks us to look at his scooter and give a repair
price . We ask "What is it doing?" Joe says ," My son got stuck in a
rainstorm and the scooter stopped working " . Naturally we suspect a
fried controller . He agrees to the diagnosis fee . We lift the
hood , make a quick check of the batteries and fuses , and pop a
control module in . If we don't have the part we jump a substitute , if
the motor won't turn but we get a break light we plug a new motor up ,
we are not installing parts , just plugging them in . Now the motor
turns , we try Joe's old controller with the new motor and it works ,
wa la ..All you need is this motor, 70 bucks, 20 minutes. Happy
customer, happy repairman.
This method may seem unorthodox but it works well and it's an
honest approach. We just plug in a couple of parts, charge a flat
diagnoses fee and installation charge, never selling a part that is not
needed and our customers love and recommend us. Could you ask for more?
