I JUST PURCHASED A JAZZY WHEEL CHAIR AND IT IS I THINK 2003 MODEL WHEN TURNED ON THERE ARE 3 RED LIGHTS AND 4 YELLOW LIGHTS FLASHING AND NOTHING HAPPENS


the 7 lights indicate a joystick problem which means the joystick/controller will have to be replaced since there is no self repair fix Unless you can locate a good used joystick/controller for cheap (around $600.00 rebuilt) I would return the chair and get my money back Hope this helps

Do not know if chair is taking a charge lights just keep moving across armrest .how do u tell when fully charged?


hi let me see if i can help ,

When the lights go back and forth on your joystick that means the chair knows its pluged in .Now the chair itself has a built in charger that is mounted on the back of your chair .The back of the chair ,there is a opening a cutout in the frame .when you plug in your chair there will be a red light and a yellow ,yellow means the chair is charging, wait till it turns green,this means fully charged.When you plug in the chair youll see the lights through that hole.Look for the lights.

I recommend my customers to leave there chair charging over night look at the light it will be green when you turn the chair on the joystick should show fully charge.


Good luck hope i was of some help.

When I plug it in to charge the red and amber lights stay lit and the green flashes and if i move the joystick everything is backwards push forward goes backwards left is right. b4 when it was plugged in...


sounds like a charger inhibit problem. Whenever you charge your chair the charger inhibit shuts down the chair so it can't be moved while charging. If you are getting this then that function is not working. Lets try this if you know of someone who has a chair or scooter with an off-board charger see if you can borrow it. Plug the off-board charger into the charger port located under the front of the joystick (don't have the on-board charger plugged in) and then turn the charger on. turn the chair's power on and you hopefully will see the lights blinking again indicating a charger plugged in (charger inhibit) the lights on the charger should be red and yellow (yellow turning green when fully charged) If you still get the problem with the off-board charger then your problem is in the controller or power module and this requires a new one. If Medicare paid for your chair you can call Repair Xpress @ 1-877-81-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to have them fix it for you and bill Medicare for most of the repair costs. Hope this helps you

The speed control light goes back and fourth on the console.


If the lights are chasing left to right then you are in inhibit mode meaning a charger is attached or there is a problem in the joystick with the inhibit functio. Right to left chasing I think means you are in freewheel. Turn the Power off and reset the levers in front on the chair then turn the power back on and hope the lights are steady and the chair will work. If this doesn't do it maybe you are in lockout mode. If you have the manual for this chair it should explain how to get out of "lockout". If not try turning the power on and within 10 seconds push the joystick straight forward and hold until you hear a beep then immediately move the joystick to the rear and hold until you hear another beep then release joystick to the center. This should get it out of "lockout" Hope this helps!!! Of course you could always call Hoveround and ask for tech support to help with this. Checkout their website for phone number Hoveround.com

When switched on power light flashes.


How many flashes? Count number of flashes should be a slight pause then flashes the same number of times . Your manual will give you flash codes and you can determine what the problem is. If all the lights are flashing and there is no pause the chair could be in "lockout" Your manual should tell you how to get the chair out of lockout I think that Pride uses the joystick to get it out of this mode.. Turn the chair on move the joystick forward till you hear a beep then move the joystick to the rear until you hear another beep release the joystick and the lights should quit flashing Hope this helps

When turning power it makes a clicking sound but does not power up. battery charger has a red and green light on. When plugged in and turned on it flashes 8 times. I checked the power control connection,...


The chair will not move if the charger is plugged in. The flashes are normal with the charger plugged into the chair. The lights on the charger mean that the batteries have been fully charged. Red and yellow lights mean charging. After you unplug the charger from the chair (if off-baord charger, turn charger off or unplug from the wall) then unplug from joystick. after plug is removed from joystick press the on button and all the battery lights should be lit and when you move the joystick forward you will hear the electric bake release and the chair should move forward etc Hope this helps

Ran into wall with ranger wheelchair now green light comes on and flashes then goes to red and cuts off chair will not go at all please help!


Sounds like you've knocked the joystick off-center in its gymbal mount. This is a pretty common problem since the joystick usually takes the first hit into walls, doorframes, and also happens a lot when the chairs get run under table and counters. The power control module has a "prevent" circuit which will not allow the chair to boot-up if the joystick is not top-dead-center, otherwise, the chair could be turned on while pushing the joysitck full-speed forward, etc. and you could inadvertantly run over someone or drive off a cliff!

There's nothing you can do to repair this yourself. If the chair's under warranty, call your provider for a replacement. If not, call your banker as the new joystick is about $1,000.00. There's a company I found that advertises it can repair these but I have never used them. It'd be worth a try to save all the money. Here's the link.

Jazzy 1121 power chair won't go


If your chair is run by a Pilot VSI controller, the error code----3 red/4 yellow/ 1 green---indicates a controller failure. I am having controller problems of a different kind on a Jazzy 1107 and it appears that few shops will work on the controller. Replacement is very costly.
