My tilt lock was stuck, its alarm beeping all the time, and the scooter won't ride because the throttle doesn't release.
Eventually, my mechanic directed me over the phone how to resolve this.
There's a small electric motor above the right front wheel. This motor is a part of the tilt-lock mechanism. It has a small black rubber cap that you need to remove, revealing a little valve you can turn with a slim flat-head screwdriver.
Just turn that valve a little to the left and to the right, turn the scooter off and on again, and try to release the tilt-lock again (you can put the scooter on the rear stand so that it doesn't fall when the tilt-lock releases).
If it doesn't release with your weight on the seat, try tapping the release button twice fast.
This worked for me just now, and now it's working fine.

3. Black rubber cap


4. Valve (you can see the little place for the screwdriver to turn it)

I had a continuous beep in which I was unable to disengage the tilt-lock with the switch on the handlebars. This solution worked to resolve the issue. I am now able to disengage the tilt lock (and never plan to engage it again!).

Thanks!
