ProRider golf trolley will not start

Fault with ProRider golf trolley not moving

The fault is that the ProRider golf trolley does not work at all.  It will not start up or move forward under power.
All of the display lights work, the speed controller shows the speed variation. The 3 distance settings are illuminated depending which button is pressed, but none of the settings time out. Can you tell me which parts I should order from you. Many thanks.

What is wrong with the golf trolley and how to fix the fault.

Like all faults with golf trolleys, it is difficult to say exactly what is causing this.  The handle PCB will most
likely be working, the speed control switch knob will be working.  I believe the S1 controller has control over the timer on the auto distance motor run.   As the display is working normally and if there is no click at the controller when trying to power the wheels forward, then my assumption would be the S1 controller is at fault.

S1 controller NEW 9 speed


Problem solved golf trolley back working

Many thanks for your input regarding the fault on my pro rider. Bought a new S1 controller changed it over and the new controller solved the problem.


A friend of mine has just purchased a pro-rider PR1192 golf trolley.
After 2 rounds it has lost all power.  I have looked at all connections and found no breakages.  I have just plugged the trolley back in and it is now showing no 8 on the display.  Also, I found that the coloured cables that connect to the control box do not match ie
blue to blue, black to black.

Not sure of the setup with the colour of wires and if anyone may be changed this around. I would think the trolley wouldn’t have worked from the beginning if the wires had been at fault and not run for two rounds then failed. So it is more likely to be a component which has failed. It’s difficult to say if it could be the speed control switch or golf trolley controller box. I would have a look at the website we have a few articles on different failures of control switches etc. Just go to the magnifying glass on the top right corner to search for say “speed control switch”

  1. I have just fitted a new speed control from you as I snapped the previous one at the handle. Everything was working fine up till then, I completed the round on One speed. I fitted the new one with no problem, when I tried to test it, all lights came on
    as I turned the Knob it went from 0 to 1 then as it moved toward 2 it died and the lights went out. I turned on the power again and the lights all came on again, the same thing happened again each time i attempted to run Trolly. Is this a faulty controller or panel [which was ok before changing speed control?

    1. I couldn’t rule out the electronic components. Normally theses exact symptoms are when an electric golf trolley dials up the speed to around speed 2 or 3 and it shuts down. This usually means the power connections are not handling the higher current demand. Therefore I would check the battery cable connections. Clean Then spray WD40 on them see if this helps. Possibly a new battery lead.

    i have a drive fault with me prorider golf trolley all light are on and the S1 is clicking when speed control is used what could this be



    1. If the lights are working normally and the speed controller switch is scrolling normally i.e. showing all the LED speed numbers going up and down smoothly. The controller under the battery tray is clicking when switching on the drive then it usually means the power is getting out to the motor. I would try to test the motor connection on the controller side to see if there is any power coming out of it when powered up. If not the connections or lastly the motor.


    Hi, The electrinic display has suddenly stopped working/displaying, everything else is ok. Any tips or ideas to fix

    1. It seems like a handle circuit has blown or the connection to it needs checked. IF the golf trolley is still working OK from the panel then it may be the LED speed light connection within the circuit.

  4. My Prorider is playing up.All 3 display lights are on.
    It will only move if I press one of the 3 distance buttons
    The speed control has a mind of its own and jumps around. It will not respond to my turning it.
    Any ideas?

    1. Craig, It is most likely to be the speed control switch not responding correctly. It should move on all 3 preset distances unless the circuit contact is not touching the display cover correctly. Worth trying to press hard on the ones not working. Let me know how you get on?

  5. Hi
    Further to the question about pro rider golf trolley not turning wheels/axle all lights are on speed control works,when press go button can hear click under battery tray but no movement of wheels or axle i did replace rear driveshaft recently and also wheel pins
    Any help you can give me would be much appreciated

    1. It does seem like the motor itself. Connecting 12v to the connector terminals will tell if it is the motor. Any terminal no specific way around for testing positive/negative will do.

  6. I decided to wash my Prorider golf trolley, hosed it off. Now the battery lights, green, amber, red illuminate but nothing else. Pressing the on/ button has no effect and the main display doesn’t light up. I took the covers off and everything is dry, your advice would be greatly appreciated.

    1. When the golf trolley gets wet inside it can take a few days to dry the circuits and wiring/connections completely. And the fault could be coming the handle circuit or controller unit.

  7. My prorider trolley has stopped working completely.The lithium battery is fully charged but no lights on .Purchased in Feb 21 .
    Bought new charger in case it was faulty but still nothing working

  8. Dear Sir,
    I have a Hillman Endurance trolley that is completely dead. The handle PCB is a SIG-8-V2 which has a different layout to your SKU 105. So I was wondering if your
    SKU 133 T handle would fit the Hillman.
    Is the frame tubing fitting round or oval.
    Many thanks.

    1. Yes a slightly different handle PCB to the standard Pro Rider T handle original. The framing for the Pro Rider is oval see on the page above.

      1. Thanks for the reply.
        I will place an order next week.
        Is the controller SKU 2107 compatible to the SKU2133
        Many thanks.

          1. I can’t get any of the battery indicator lights to work or the LED to light. I’ve checked the connecting cable and can get continuity on all six cables end to end
            although there is a bad kink in the cable where it enters the frame behind the front wheel. I will order a new cable and start afresh. Many thanks. Jim Crane.

  9. Hi.
    I’ve a ProRider golf trolley. All lights are illuminated. The distance buttons work normally. The speed regulator works normally and its LED displays. However, the stop/go button is at times unresponsive and has to have multi attempts to make it work. Can you please advise.

    1. You may need a new display cover depending on your model there two types with Pro Rider models: a winged colour handle and the original black T handle. Also check the micro-switch which contacts the display is touching ok. After that it may need a new handle circuit see Pro Rider under store menu. Hope this helps. Email me if you need help.

    My trolley stopped working mid round. The display lights up and the speed controller goes up/down and the distance ABC show correctly. I removed the board under the battery shelf which had a blown capacitor. I bought a new one but still no drive. The new board clicks when I turn up the speed control. Any ideas?

    1. With the blown capacitor in the controller unit, then you were defintely needing this controller unit renwed. Could a fault in the motor have originally caused the controller unit to blow? – may be. I would check the motor by connecting a 12v supply to the motor itself and from there any connections to the motor.

  11. Hello
    I have owned a pro rider golf trolly with flat coloured winged handles for 12 months unfortunately a fault has developed and despite all of the control lights working and registering the trolley does not move ? i can hear a click from the trolley when scrolling the speed control . i have also noticed recently prior to this problem that the numbers were erratic when trying to regulate the speed via the control knob but assumed this was due to using it over uneven ground so difficult to stabilise it whilst on the move ? Could you please advise what parts i would require to get the trolley back into service.

    1. Definitely if you get erratic speed when adjusting it up or down, like speed numbers missing or jumping up by a few, then a new speed control switch product code SKU2102 would solve this. A click below the battery tray is a sign the controller unit is getting the signal to power the motor. Let me know how you get on if ordering/fitting this part. Contact page has the email address.
