Honestly I don't know if I can solve this problem, but, when do you get the buzzing sound, when your in motion? (in other words moving) what brand do you have? It shouldn't be making the noise unless you have the QLogic Controller that can make beeps when you move to a fuction... Let me know more...

The only time the chair worked [approx. 1/2 hour] was when the repairman cleaned the cables. Since that, the chair charges, turns green for full charge, and only flashes red as soon as the joystick is...


hi.

the link below is for the owners manual for the quickie aspire power wheelchair, free download in pdf format.
http://www.wheelchair-review.co.uk/wheelchair-files/wheelchair-manuals/sunrise-medical-wheelchairs/quickie-aspire-power-wheelchair.pdf
the "cane crutch holder" is an acessory part that you can get, fitted to the back of the seat, to hold a crutch or cane. it does not affect the chair itself at all.
there are two most likely reasons for your problem, neither of which actually involve the arm and controller.
1. if the battery light is flashing 9 times when you try to move, then you need to check the motor locks are engaged properly. see page 27 of the manual for photos and location. these are also known as "freewheel levers" and allow you to disconnect the motors to push the chair manually. if the levers are engaged properly, it is quite possible that the switch, or switch wires have broken and the chair thinks that they are off. these are very cheap and easy to replace and are located where the lever connects inside the chair.

2. if the battery light comes on and stays on, then you may need to have the batteries checked. if the batteries have not been charged for a while then sulphur may have built up on the lead plates inside the battery. this can mean that the batteries will show fully charged, but as soon as you try to draw power, they cannot function due to the sulphur, and instantly show as flat.
any auto shop should be able to perform a battery load test for you to test this. a 100amp load test for about 6 seconds will test the battery performance and let you know if they need replacing. most places will do this test for free but the batteries need to be fully charged first.

hopefully, one of these solutions will work as these are the most common fault for the symptoms you are describing. you should find the manual quite useful as well.

please feel free to ask if you need more information.

hope this helps

Hi, Just replaced two batteries. Chair powers on but I just hear a click sound when I push the button to move chair. please help. thanks.


The fact that you just replaced the batteries indicates a battery problem that has been solved. Please make sure the new batteries are fully charged. The fact that the power wheelchair powers on is an indicator that the VSI controller (joystick) is working. When you move the joystick forward you will hear a click sound from the motors and electromagnetic brakes. The click is the brake being released by the electromagnetic solenoid. If you have a flash code on the controller and the chair does not move you can look up the flash code using the following link:
http://www.pgdt.com/scenter/diagnostics/diagvsi.html
This motor/brake problem is typical for the Aspire and can usually be traced to the large connector at the back of the power chair. Pull out to disconnect the 8 pin connector and disconnect the 3 pin molex plug. Inspect and clean with electronic contact cleaner the silver pins until they are shiny. Spray clean the plugs. Work the plug in and out to clean the inner contacts. If the chair now runs you have traced the problem to the main harness receptacle and the VSI controller plug. The only cost effective repair of the the main harness receptacle is to replace it. The VSI plug is can be cleaned several times before it needs to replaced or the controller rebuilt.
If you need to replace a motor/brake assembly you need to contact a qualified technician who can troubleshoot further with a PP1 programmer to read the fault code history log. The technician will also have a digital voltmeter to verify your motor/brake problem. In my experience, the motor/brakes can last up to 3 years depending on use. The wiring harnesses at the rear location are easily hit and are usually more problematic because of their location, collecting dirt, moisture, and corrosion. Hope this helps,

The wheelchair will only move when the charger is plugged in. Unplug and all lights are normal but no motor actuation. thank you fo4r your help


berry boy Not alot of information but when you say all lights are normal do you mean the battery level lights are all lit up and there are no flashes. Usually when this happens the battery level is too low to make the chair move. When you have the chair plugged up the charger gives enough power to make it move. If you have a digital voltmeter set it 200 vdc then plug the 2 test leads into the 2 outter charger port holes. You should be able to read the battery level and after a full charge should be reading 25-27 volts. Hope this helps

Flashing battery life lights, quickie 525s


The chair is either in freewheel or the number of flashes will indicate an error code to tell what the problem is. Look in your users manual for error codes or contact Sunrise Medical Tech support

I think you have locked your controller, or put it in "sleep mode". Turn on the chair again and push the joystick forward, then to reverse, then forward again and release. It should fire up. Let us know if that worked.

Manual wheelchair Hard to PUSH


Pull off the Big Wheels and see if you have Hair Wrapped around the Axel part of the wheel, sometimes when I used to have a manual wheelchair hair would wrap around it. If not, then it really could be your tires, especially if they have treads on them, you might have warn down the treads making it harder to push, so check both, if your treads are low, then you need new tires, you can either call the person who helped you get the chair, like a wheelchair Specialist or even try your local bike shop, I've gotten tires from them before, they aren't as good as the ones I get from my Wheelchair Specialist - Hudson Home Health Care, but they at the time were better than nothing.
