I bought this freedom scooter at a local on-line auction and I nee help identifying it to acquire the parts I need for it. I looked everywhere for a model or serial number with no luck. It does not have a key nor battery(s). I found a bunch of loose wires under the frame and have no idea what they go to. If it can be identified, is there an electrical wiring schematic available and a parts list breakdown.
Thank anyone for assistance.
Since you can't find them, fortunately the model and serial number will not do any good when trying to locate parts for that scooter. There are no wiring schematics or parts list breakdowns available for Freedom scooters. It can be fixed though by wiring the scooter from scratch with a new speed controller and following its wiring directions.
The fastest way to get it going would be to get the motor running and not worry about getting the lights working at first. You could always go back and rewire the lights so they work after getting the motor running. It would be easiest to drill a hole in the body of the scooter for a toggle or key switch, rather than try to get the key switch working in its original position under the handlebars.
To figure out how many batteries it needs for the battery pack and what Voltage and Wattage the controller should be I would check to see if there is a sticker on the motor that indicates its Volts and Watts. If the motors Volts and Watts are known any brushed motor speed controller with the same Voltage and Wattage rating could be used for the scooter. Depending upon the motor and speed controller Voltage, the number of batteries for the battery pack could be decided. If it is a 24 Volt scooter then it will use 2 batteries for the battery pack, if it is a 36 Volt scooter then it will use 3 batteries for the battery pack.
If the motor does not have a sticker on it or the motors sticker does not have the Volts and Watts printed on it then the Voltage of the scooter may be found on the battery charger identification sticker. The battery charger will not indicate the Watts of the motor however most Freedom scooters are between 250 and 500 Watts so a 500 Watt speed controller would be a good choice becuase it will run motor rated between 250 and 500 Watts.
I recommend not using the scooters original wiring harness and starting from scratch on the wiring. For wire I would use 12 gauge wire for the battery pack to speed controller wires, and for the speed controller to motor wires if you need to extend them. The original wires may be 14 gauge but it is good to upgrade to 12 gauge wire since it will only cost a few pennies more and will make the scooter more reliable.
Here is a basic wiring drawing for an electric scooter which indicates how to hook up all of the components:
The speed controllers wiring directions will precisely indicate which wires to connect to which parts. Wiring an electric scooter is as simple as it looks in the drawing. Its just a matter of wiring a few parts and components together to the speed controller. If you have any questions or need any suggestions for which parts to choose after you investigate the Voltage and Wattage of the motor please let me know.
Here are the parts I recommend for your scooter:
Speed Controller: Item # SPD-24250 Add to Cart
Battery Harness: Item # HNS-100 Add to Cart
Battery Charger: Item # CHR-24V1.6A3P Add to Cart
The 15Ah batteries will provide around 20% more range or ride time than the 12Ah batteries. They are both the exact same size though. The 15Ah batteries weigh around 20% more than the 12Ah batteries do.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
