Sounds like the wiring from the motor to the controler is not making good connection, try unpluging motor wiring from controller box. Use a plastic safe elec. contact cleaner and lube spray on connections. water in the joystick can also cause this.

I get error code 9, what do I do to fix this

Error Code 9 is a "Communications Error". The controller, or "Little black box" down inside the chair is not talking to the joystick, etc. First, check all the connections. Unplug, examine and clean all of the connections going into the controller, and the joystick connection too. Inspect all of the cables for damage to the wiring. If all looks good, then you likely have a bad controller....ouch. These are very expensive to replace new. You might be able to find a used one on Ebay, etc., or you could be better off looking on sites like Craigslist for a complete powerchair replacement. I have found near-new chairs for under a thousand dollars. Search for Pride Jazzy chairs too...a lot more of those for sale than Invacare chairs. Good luck.

Red light flasheswhen on. 4times turn off

This flash code is indicating that the right motor has a bad connection. It rarely is the case that the cable leading from the motor to the controller comes usually is the case that the motor has overheated and burned out a winding that makes it....toast, unfortunately. This can occur from getting stuck in the mud, sand or getting the chair trapped in a doorway, for instance, and trying to drive it against strong resistance. Also, I should add, that sometimes the controller "lies", and it might be the left motor. Swap the cable from left to right and right to left and turn on the chair and see how many flashes. If is shows three, then the right motor is probably shot. Also, and it happens a lot, if the controller(the box that the cables run into)has been damaged somehow, it may be giving you a false fault code. You have to have a known good motor to plug into the right motor connection, fire up the chair and see if that clears the fault. Either way, it is not a cheap, easy fix. Sorry for your problems.

The led flashes 9 times

9 flashes indicates a problem with the parking brakes. Check to make sure the brakes are engaged and the chair is not in freewheel. there may be a bad connection at the left and right motor connections and brake wiring. Check these connectors for separation and loose, corroded contacts. Reset the error code by turning the chair off and back on once you think you have corrected the problem. Hope this helps

Not sure witch jazzy chair i got but the joy stick blink and keeps blinking i have tried pushing horn button twice and also turning it on and pushing joy stick forward waiting for it to beep but no beep....

The jazzy probably has a VSI controller and if it is sleep mode then the lights will scroll rather than blink. Now turn on the chair and see if the blinks have a pause between them, ie 4 blinks pause 4 blinks pause etc If they do count the number of blinks and this will give you the error code ie 4 blinks right motor 3 blinks left motor your owners manual should have a chart listing the error codes If not you can contact Pride tech support @ 1-800-800-8586 ask for jazzy tech support

Hope this helps

JRH, you didn't say if you put new batteries in the chair. If not some of your problem could be the batteries The lights on the joystick will blink a certain number of times to give you a "fault code" Use this code to determine the error. If after you rode the chair out of freewheel then the motor connection is not the problem. I'm guessing the batteries are the problem. Hope this helps

I have a Jazzy 1101 that is showing is showing a right motor disconnect code (3 Red & 1 Yellow) I have checked all connections on the chair and have not found any to be loose or corroded. Several times...

Hi. Sounds like a stuck or worn brush in the right hand motor. If one or both of the brushs are sticking, give it a light file on the sides of the brush until it slides in and out smoothly. Be carefull tightening the brush caps, as they can crack if tightened too hard, but they do need to be done up firm. Good luck. Neil.
