So bit of backstory bought my son this scooter from Amazon. For his birthday in October a month later it randomly stops working as he's riding it. Thinking it wasn't charged, we took it home and plugged it in and the light stayed green in the charger. So tried to turn it on and it had E1 error in the display. Checked the instructions and they stated "throttle error" and thr most common fix was the handlebar cover being too close to the throttle. Checked the cover and it had acti slipped off quite a way so no where near the throttle. So we secured it back on and tried to turn the scooter on again. This time the scooter began charging totally fine and turned on with no error code showing. Thinking we fixed it. We took it the next day and sure enough it did the exact same thing only now it wouldn't turn on at all unless it was plugged into the charger. And if u disconnected it from the charger it turned straight off. After watching a few "how to" videos on YouTube decided to take the base off and the bottom of the scooter was full of water about half a oint glass full the sticker that's meant to turn red when the battery is wet was still white but the controller unit was soaked inside. So unplugged everything disconnected everything and allowed them to dry out after a few days drying out we put the scooter back together and now it doesn't turn on at all not even plugged in.but thr brake light flickers quite bright when. Press the power button. Am guessing it's water damaged beyond repair but if i can get replacement parts i'd definitely give it a go. The seller was through Amazon marketplace (didn't realise this) and they don't respond to any of my messages. Amazon even contacted them on my behalf and still nothing. I just refuse to believe a month of owning it justifys it cutting out. My questions are
1) can u possibly tell me where to buy decent/safe replacement parts
2) whats more likely to be broken battery/control/both
possibly tell me what numbers i should be looking at, for replacement parts (voltage,name etc)
And longshot what brand it actually falls ![under](https://
Hey Baloozie sorry to hear that :/. This looks like to be a Xiaomi clone and parts for such scooters can be found at https://www.aliexpress.com/?aff_fcid=b511a883e9614ddeb75686696e868b61-1646748685630-02617-_AaqbPP&tt=CPS_NORMAL&aff_fsk=_AaqbPP&aff_platform=portals-tool&sk=_AaqbPP&aff_trace_key=b511a883e9614ddeb75686696e868b61-1646748685630-02617-_AaqbPP&terminal_id=dbc594854f6442db851b750503f3014a&afSmartRedirect=y for good prices, but make sure you buy the correct parts because there are many clones with different setups. Make sure you get the same exact parts for replacement. Double, triple check everything :)
Let us know how is this going!
