Troubleshooting Tips

What do I do if my key breaks off?
Occasionally a key breaks off in the key lock. Use needle nose pliers or a flat knife to turn the key until a new key is sent. To remove the old key, turn off unit and put a 90-degree bend at the end of a paper clip or pin. Push the pin in the key lock beside the key and twist and pull the key and pin out.

To order a new key, contact your local service provider or click here.


Where do I find my serial number?
Depending on the Amigo model you have and when it was purchased, the serial number is likely located on the steering column, under the rear cover, on the frame or near one of the rear wheels. See below for photos of the most common serial number locations.

What should I do if my batteries are not holding a charge?

Step 1

  • Plug in charger.
  • Does the battery gauge flash for 30 to 45 seconds and then turn solid?
  • If yes - the charger is working. Charge the Amigo for 8 or more hours.
  • After 8 hours, the battery gauge will move from solid to flashing. If the Amigo does not hold a charge all day, replace batteries.

Step 2

  • Plug in charger.
  • If the battery gauge does not flash for 30 to 45 seconds and then turn solid:
  • check electrical outlet for power
  • check all electrical connections and wiring to the charger
  • If outlet, wiring and all electrical connections seem to be OK, replace charger. (A voltage meter is helpful to check wiring and connections).
  • Note: If the Amigo has been sitting for two to three weeks with run down batteries and the battery voltage is less than seven volts, the charger may not turn on. The batteries will have to be charged on a separate charger to bring them up to seven volts each.
