SOURCE: need to remove the bad batteries Jet 3 power chair

Hello Donald ,
You may have solved this problem by now ,but just in case you have not, here goes.

Make sure the chair is turned off and engauged in the drive mode meaning not in the free wheeling mode. This way it will not roll around on you during the battery change out.

Go to the rear of the chair and slightly turn the two black plastic lock pins,one on each side they actually lock the small )) shaped cover in place. Turn these with your fingers or you can also insert a dime in the slot on top of each pin to turn them . You will be able to tell when they have unlocked as the )) shaped cover will be loose. Lift the cover up and under it you will find the battery connector, unplug it and leave the cover off for now.

Next ,move to the front of the chair and just to the rear of the footplate you will find a locking pin that runs through the lower rear bar of the footplate as well as the chair frame itself . Pull this pin completely out. Once done you should be able to pull the entire footplate assembly out torward you, Black plastic front cover included. Once you have it pulled outward lift it upward and it should lift completely off the chair. This done , you should actually be looking at the front battery which is sitting in a black plastic tray. Gently but with a firm grip grab the tray anyplace you can and slowy begin to slide it out from under the chair torward you taking care not to tangle the battery connector at the rear with any other wiring on its way out. Once you have the tray slid out into the open ,you will be looking at both batteries after which you will need to unhook the straps that secure the Batteries to the tray after which you will need grab your wrenches and remove the battery harness itself from each battery. You may want to do just one battery at a time this way you'll have less wiring to keep track of when wiring in the new Batteries. The Batteries in your Jet 3 are a size known as U-1 deep cycle sealed maint. free batts, You can use either Gel Cell or seale3d LA replacements . Though they are much cheaper, you cannot use lawn tractor batteries. Though they look the same the internal technology between medical powered mobility batteries and tractor batteries are entirely different. The latter would only run your chair for maybe a half hour or so before needing charge.
Take great care to make sure your wiring hookups are correct and that you position the rear connector plug to the rear of the tray. This way you will be able to locate it easier once you have slid the tray back in under the chair and it is time to go to the rear of the chair and reconnect that plug. As for everything else ,reattach it in reverse of the way you removed it including remembering to slide the lockpin back into the front footplate frame. Give a tug on the footplate when done to make sure it is locked and secure.
In closing I offer this valuable advice : When working with any of these batteries, always were safety glasses or goggle and gloves (terminals are lead). I also advise removal of metal rings ,watches, bracelets etc that could create a short when reaching in and around the battery terminal. Take great care with your tools and wrenches in making sure you keep and eye on both ends of the tools at all times. This way you will not accidentally cross the posts of the battery. Take your time ,use proper safety technique and you'll do fine. The following is Pride Mobility's step by step for battery change out and is basically the same as I have sent . Can never have to much info but can always find yourself with not enough. Take Care


To replace the batteries:
1. Turn off the power to the controller.
2. Make sure that the power chair is in drive mode. See III. "Your Power Chair."
3. Turn the rear shroud fasteners one-quarter turn in any direction. See figure 6.
4. Remove the rear shroud.
5. Unplug the battery connector. See figure 26.
6. Remove the retaining pin from the foot platform and lift the platform up and away from the power base. See figure 19.
7. Slide the battery tray forward.
8. Unfasten the reusable strap around the front battery.
9. Disconnect the wiring harness from the front battery.
10. Remove the front battery.
11. Unfasten the reusable strap around the rear battery.
12. Disconnect the wiring harness from the rear battery.
13. Remove the rear battery.
14. Place a new rear battery on the battery tray. Make sure that the terminals are facing forward.
15. Fasten the reusable strap around the rear battery.
16. Connect the wiring harnesses to the rear battery.

SOURCE: Jet 3 Ultra won't charge

Indeed, you need to find a repair shop. Try a google search for power chair repair, or ask your local hospital or if you can find one a power chair store. Most likely, you have a mechanical failure of the wiring, the battery themselves, or corrosion on the battery posts. Since the chair lights up when the charger is in, it is unlikely that the charger is broken. You may have a failure of the controller board, but that is also unlikely. And batteries do not usually suddenly fail completely; they typically fail slowly, losing the ability to completely charge.

I assume that you did not see a great deal of fluid leaking out of the battery container; you might look in the container and check to see if a battery is cracked or missing fluid.

SOURCE: new battries won't charge.

Sounds like the batteries are completely dead, you'll probably need to replace them, sometimes you can only use batteries until they die, and that goes for Wheelchair Batteries too. If they won't charge or keep a charge then they are dead.

SOURCE: battery will not fully charge but will run with partial charge

Two things can be wrong, first your batts may be old and need new ones. Have them load tested at an auto part store. Most powerchairs use two 12 volt batts. If you batts are good you should have between 12.5 and 13.5 volts on a surface charge and 11.5 to 12.5 on a load test charge. Second, if you had your chair stored away for a couple of months then your batts died and need to be replaced. If you are luck a "boost charge" might work. If you are planing to keep it stored for months at a time, you must charge the chair once every couple of weeks to keep batts fresh.

Jazzy 1113 new batteries not holding charge


On paper those batteries are both the same. There are some subtle differences. Without using an amp meter on your chair, it is not possible to say if things have changed on the chair that cause it to pull more current out of the battery. Motor wear, gear and bearing/axel lubrication can affect the amperage that the chair needs to have. This can adversely affect the battery discharge rate.

Dear kimbroberg2
My husband and I did the exact same thing for our grandson when he was 8 months old. We pulled the car out of the attic last night and the battery did not work. My husband called the manufacturer customer service at 714-256-9888. He was told that the batter was too old and would have to purchase a new one. My husband called around for the item description that they suggested and found a comparable battery at Interstate Battery in our hometown. Good luck. I know we were very disappointed when this happened, but there is hope. Hope this helps.

You have to charge the batteries for nearly 8-10 hours. Brand new batteries also require a full recharge of 8-10 hours.Not only making sure the batteries are charged, have you changed the battery in the menu under type of batteries.

Joe See my tips on charging batteries No you don't have to leave the chair on when charging. Charge overnite after using it during the day. Always have the charger off when plugging it into the chair and unplugging from the chair. The charger you have doesn't have an on/off switch so get a power strip with the on/off switch, plug that into the wall and plug your charger into the strip use the switch on the strip to turn the charger on and off this will save you having to plug and unplug the charger rom the wall. Always store or put the chair up fully charged. If you don't use the cair daily charge at least once a week. It takes 9-10 chargings to get the batteries operating at 100% so use the chair and charge overnight while you sleep Never leave the charger on the chair more than 12 hours Hope this helps you

when you plug in the charger do you get any amp reading on the meter located at the rear of the chair near where the charger cord plugs into the chair. When you plug in the cord the meter should deflect and read 6 amps or so. If you aren't getting any deflection of the amp meter then either the batteries are dead or the charger is bad. If you have a voltmeter you can set it to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the charger port located under the front of the joystick Plug the leads into the 2 outter holes of the port with the charger plugged into the wall you should be reading 27-30 volts. Unplug the charger and you will be reading the battery voltage and fully charged they should read 25-27+ volts. If you aren't reading 25-27 volts without the charger plugged in you will need new batteries( anything less than 10 volts will not let the chair turn on) if you aren't getting 27-30 volts with the charger plugged in then the charger is bad and you can get or borrow an off-board charger and charge the chair thru the joystick port Hope this helps

Given a hand me down Dexton Lil Driver Battery Golf Cart. Is there an online manual to find out what the charging cord looks like & where to plug it into the cart.


To charge... you need to remove the seat. Only 2 screws holding it in place. Underneath you will see the battery...you will notice wires from the battery connect to wires from the motor on the wheels...pull apart those 2 connectors and attach the charger...then plug it in to a wall socket and leave connected for a long period of time. I don't remember how long it takes for a full charge...but I'm thinking at least 12 hours. If the battery doesn't hold a charge you can typically get it at walmart or online. Best of luck.

Nick yes I would say that the batteries are too low for the charger to pick up and charge thats why you are getting the green light. If Medicare purchased the chair then they will pay for repair you can contact the provider that sold you the chair and ask them to come out and repair the chair or you can call Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to have it repaired Hope this helps you

Hi. Sounds very much as if your batteries need replacing. Batteries loose there ability to hold a charge if they are left for long periods of time.
Some times repeated charging and discharging will help, but will not be as good as new ones. Good luck. Neil.
