SOURCE: only 1 battery charges

The lights are working, the batteries aren't. Red indicates power to the charger, and it should be on all the time. Green indicates a full charge, usually. If one or both of the batteries are totally dead, then the charger can't "see" them, and you will get a green light, but you will have dead batteries.

All power chairs use sealed, deep-cycle batteries. Deep cycle batteries, are designed for slow amperage dischare over a long time period, unlike a car battery that throws out a lot of amperage for turning the motor over. That's called "cold-cranking amps", and you can load-test a car battery to see if it will throw out a ton of amps for long enough to start a car. There is NO load tester made, or possible for a deep-cycle battery. A load test requires a 24-hour time period, and a complicated formula.

So, your course is to get some fresh, gel-sealed-batteries. You will need type U-1. Specify, gel-sealed-batteries when you go to the battery shop. A fresh set should get the chair up to about 12-16 mile range, which would be about 3-4 hours running constantly at high speed. Good luck.

SOURCE: My wheelchair dose not move

The chair has two levers, one for each motor, that disengage it for freewheeling, or pushing the chair without power. These take it out of gear. Place the levers in the locked, gear-engaged position and it should go for you. Here's a link for the manual for your chair, and it will show you where the location is to place it in gear.http://www.invacare.com/doc_files/1125085J.pdf

SOURCE: control box on pronto m51 wheelchair don;t work

When you say "control box" I assume that you mean the joystick. If there is no power to the joystick be sure that the batteries are fully charged and be sure that they do not need to be replaced, also be sure that the cables were not put on wrong. If all that checks out then be sure that all the cables are tight.

If all these do not solve the problem then you need to have the joystick tested.

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.

Reset button on pronto m51


There is no reset button on a M51 chair. Invacare puts fuses in the battery harnesses. The manual may say there is a reset but trust me there is not.

I have a error code of 5


This is a right brake fault code, usually from bumping the lever that takes the motor out of gear so that the drive wheel will turn so you can push the chair. Put the lever in the full neutral position, then put back into gear to drive to see if this fixes it. If it still flashes, unplug the cable from the right motor to the controller and plug back in again, that should do it. If not, you have an issue that a technician will need to look at that is more serious.

How to move dead electric wheel chair


There are two levers, one for each motor, you have two. Depending on model either right under your knees (M51) usually, or under the rear, near the back casters. Typically black rubber on a metal rod. Move both in opposite directions, either both out, both in, or some types, both up, or both down. Sometimes they need wiggling, turn the chair OFF then try moving it in each position, (both in or both out). Google the manufacturer, your case invacare, they have detailed instructions there.

Sounds like you need to replace the left electric brake. The brake is on the opposite end of the motor-gear assembly from the motor. Remove the screws holding the brake on to the gear assembly, unplug it and replace with new brake.

Where is the reset button on a invacare m51


The controller puts out fault codes though the LEDs. Count them and then look in the operators manual for likely causes. In my experience it is the electronic brakes that fail on these units and they are costly.

How do I charge My Pronto M51 motorized wheelchair?


Margie,   Yes you may charge it overnight. If you use it everyday,charge it every night. Once the charger senses 24 volts it stops sending a charge,so they cannot be overcharged.  I suggest when you go to bed put on the charger and unplug it when you get up in the morning.
