There are 2 circuit breakers (small buttons). Find them and make sure they are pushed in. Also check all the electrical connectors to be sure they are tight.

I just installed the batteries & when I turn it on all the lights continually flash

Either the batteries were wired incorrectly, or the cables are not tight between the control box and battery boxes, or the controller connector is not all the way in. Is the unit in gear?

Hoveround won't move.

Double check to be sure drive levers are fully engaged. Go down and up a few times. If problem persists have Hoveround come and check it out. One of the drive motors may have shorted out when you continued driving with gravel in the wheel.

How do you change batteries on hoveround mpv5 ?

Disconnect cables going from battery boxes to the control box. There is probably a catch that needs to be squeezed in, then pull and wigglt the connection block until it disengages. Release the straps over the battery boxes then remove batteries and covers. Lift up on the cover (you may need to push some cable back into the box) and put cover aside. Disconnect cables from batteries and attach to the new batteries. Same procedure, in reverse, gets you back to an operational MPV5.

How do i replace hoveround motor?

First off, are you sure it's the motor causing the problem? Changing the motor is a major job. Basically, you have to completely disassemble the entire unit.
Remove the seat and then the batteries. To get to the drive motor, you must remove the pedestal base, and the plastic shroud that covers the base plate. Remove all screws from the top of the unit, and flip over and remove the bolts from the bottom. The control box is held in place by 2 hex screws. Label the motor wires showing their location. Remove motor and replace with new drive motor. Attach motor wires and reassemble entire unit.

On hoveround teknique fwd chair, showing 8-bar trouble code with all functions locked out. i need to a) raise the seat so it can be removed and b) restore function to the chair. any suggestions apart from...

An 8 Bar Flash on the controller of a Teknique FWB indicates: Possible Control System Trip
A control system trip is indicated. Make sure that all connections are secure. This means that one of the wires attached to the junction box, or the umbillical, may have come disconnected.

Is your power chair equipped with an optional power seat lift? If not, raising or lowering the seat will not restore function to the power chair. Have you tried doing a brake reset just to see if that will help? The manual brake levers are under the bottom front of the chair base; turn off the controller, pull the levers down then push them back up until the pop into place. This reset will clear many issues.

If you are able to check the wiring for the junction box and wish to remove the seat, you can do so, but the Teknique series is terribly difficult for the average end-user to work on and is recommended that a Hoveround Technician do it. Hoveround will not even ship batteries for self-installation to owners of any of the Teknique power chairs because they are such a pain to work on. The seat must be fully removed to gain access to the batteries under the motor cover and most power chair owners do not posses the kind of strength and dexterity needed to do it.

The seat post can be removed by removing a bolt underneath the seat, you will also need to unclip the black umbilical cord leading from the controller to the motor cover so that you do not yank it out when you remove the seat. The motor/battery cover can then be unbolted to allow you access to the batteries and junction box. I cannot give you details on how to do this, because as a Hoveround Tech Support Rep, we are instructed to dispatch a technician for the customer's safety and I have never done it myself or even seen it done.

If your Hoveround was purchased via your Insurance, they will most likely pay for the repair, but it may take time to schedule the appointment if the Insurance requires documentation or verification before allow the repair to take place. If you are in need of additional assistance, please contact Hoveround Tech Support at 800-964-6837 on Wednesdays or Thursdays when the call volume is lower. It's worth a shot.

Good luck!

Carefully read across two pins, without shorting to the case or other pins. You should have 1 hot, one ground, and usually another ground that acts as a charge inhibit to keep the scooter from driving while charging. I would expect to see around 27 Volts DCX on the output, maybe more without a load attached (battery)
