Getting no lights

My friend was riding back from the store and the chair suddenly just stopped. Will not power on. Batteries are about 18 months old but are always on the charger unless the chair is being used. When I try to power it on, I get nothing. No lights on the console, no beeps. I checked the fuses (both good) and I checked all the connections. Also checked the brake levers.

First only charge the chair prior to using it, constant charging will dry out the batteries. though not likely the batteries now sounds like a loose connection somewhere, batteries just don't stop they fade out slowly. look for loose connector

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.

Yes, the main controller module can be very expensive to replace. I would take it to a reputable dealer if the battery replacement does not help.

SOURCE: charger on, chair won't charge, pushed in reset,

What do the lights on the joystick do when you turn it on with the charger plugged in? If the lights are not scrolling then the chair is not recognizing the charger. If they are scrolling the charger is the issue. If you can try another charger.

SOURCE: Jassy 1103, will not start charging the battery.\r...

the 1103 uses an onboard charger. Charger's life span is about 3 years; some fail in 6 months, some in 6 years keep in mind. You can charge the 1103 using an offboard charger which are available for about $50.00 on Ebay. Search for electric wheelchair charger. You want one that has a 4 to 6 amp rating.

The offboard charger has a 3-prong connector on one end and the other plugs into a grounded wall outlet. Plug the charger into an outlet and the three prong connector into the female three prong connector located at the bottom front of the joystick. Give it a good overnight charge and it should be back up to snuff in the morning.

Our jet7 power wheel chair wont do anythin i had it chargin all nite wat do u suggest


If the chair does not turn on at all after charging and the batteries are over 18 months old, have the batteries removed and tested at a wholesale battery shop or specialty battery retailer (NOT Walmart. NOT autoparts!) Chances are the batteries are bad.
If batteries load test fine then you have a wiring or controller issue.

Red light flashing on joystick about 10 min after charging


Most of the time it may be the batteries at fault. One more thing to try is charging the chair with the Joystick on all night 10-14 hours uninterrupted charging. Your chair may suffer from current roll back. There is a circuit in your system that has to be reset by the long charge cycle to reset it. I did not make this up. it occurs when the motors over heat or have a a large current draw. the chair will operate normally for ten maybe even twenty mins. then suddenly drop down to 2 flashing red lights.

O have a Pronto M 41 and was bought in 07 but am having problams with turning on and shutting off.Could you tell me what it could be.


Have you replaced the batteries ever? I was told by my local Invacare vendor that the batteries are only good for 12-18 months. My mom's Pronto M41 was having battery problems and replacing both batteries solved the problem in her chair bought in 2007. Now she is looking to buy a slightly used chair (4 mos old) from the family of a deceased friend and there seem to be issues with the batteries in this almost-new chair.

My Hoveround MPV5 batteries will not charge, do you think it is a battery problem or a charger problem?


If you plug the charger into the wall, turn on the power switch and the light comes on, the charger should be working properly. Here is a way to test it-
Attach the charger that came with the power chair to the power chair controller firmly and turn the power chair on, while the charger is running. What should happen:the lights on the controller will scroll back and forth. If this does NOT happen and you can confirm the charger is turned on, the charger handle is fully seated inside the controller receptacle and the wall outlet has power, then the charger may have a problem and needs to be replaced.

If the charger is OK, then there may be a problem with the batteries. Here are some sypmtoms:
1-You connect the charger but the light on the charger never goes red, it just stays green.
2-You connect the charger but the light goes from red to green VERY fast.
3-The charger light goes from red to green but when you disconnect the charger and press the power button on the controller, you only have one flashing red light, or the batteries drain within just a few minutes of use.
4-The power chair has been stored or sitting idle for several months.
5- The power chair has been connected to the charger 24-7 for several months.
Any of the above examples indicates that the batteries are oxidized or damaged and will most likely need to be replaced. The MPV5 takes two, U1 12 volt 33 amp batteries which can be purchased at any battery warehouse store like Interstate Batteries or Batteries Plus.
Good luck!

tam The batteries need to be replaced. With the lights flashing indicating low voltage and the chair just creeping means weak batteries. With a donated chair you do not know how long the chair sat without being charged. You need to purchase 2 U1 batteries. If there is a battery warehouse store near you or an Interstate battery store check with them because your cost will be less than going through a provider. Hope this helps you

I would replace the batteries with new ones anyway to make sure that you are getting full power and if the problem stops great if it continues then you have eliminated one possible problem. A low battery will cause the problem and these chairs diagnose themselves with the controller giving you flash codes to indicate a problem. I would just check for a loose connection in the wiring when you have the seat off changing the batteries and give the base a good cleaning( without water) (Use those cleaning wipes from dollar store) Hope this helps you

Why would my less than 2 months old batteries die after 15 minutes run time?


Has your power chair been stored or not used in a while? Have you been charging the batteries regularly? Is the charger plugged in to a working electrical outlet, turned on and plugged into the power chair properly?
If the batteries have not been maintained properly, they may have become damaged that will prevent them from getting a full charge. It can happen quickly, even in as little as 1 month of storage.
When you operate the power chair is there any noise or vibration that could indicate a mechanical problem?
If you continue to have a problem, contact your dealer or manufacturer. If your insurance paid for the power chair, they may pay for repairs. Warranty may not cover repairs caused by customer neglect.
Good luck!
