Did you cross your connectors? Is the joystick gimbal backwards?

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.

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 suggest you have a look at a mobility scooter.
Have a look at the Invacare Mobility scooters.
They make a Taurus model that can be dismantled into 5 components and it can be loaded into a car and reassembled once you reached your destination.
Have a look at this WEB site -

My aged uncle had one and I can recommend this one.
You may be able to buy a 2nd hand one, try E-Bay

SOURCE: Hi, Just replaced two batteries. Chair powers on

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,

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

When i plug in the charger the led light stays on green but on the joystick the lights are moving back and forth as if it is charging but wheelchair does not move


Joy When you plug in the charger the lights on the joystick will scroll because of something called charger inhibit which disables the joystick when charging It is a safety feature. Now when you disconnect the charger turn off the chair and then turn it back on you should then get all the battery lights indicating the charge level If fully charged all the lights will be lit. If after you unplug the charger and you still get the scrolling lights then you have a problem with the charger inhibit function in the joystick and it will have to be replaced. Hope this helps you

I need to replace the batteries in a quickie rhythm wheel chair, can you please tell me how to get to the batteries to replace them?


If you are able you need to remove the seat. Lift up on the lever on the right side under the seat and lft Don't forget to disconnect the joystick cable that goes into the shroud near the seat post. After you have gotten the seat out of the seat post remove the shroud covering the base by pulling up to relaese the velcro tabs. You should be able to see the batteries. Disconnect the cables and lift out each battery. Replace with new ones making sure you reattach the wires to the correct polarity. Red to pos black to neg. Hope this helps

I have a invacare The joystick mk5 will not lite up batt. are new


Some chairs, like the M91 are a real bear to replace the batteries and connectors can get knocked loose in the process. First, using a voltmeter you need to see if the controller is getting power. On the DC setting, use voltmeter at the three-pin female connection at the joystick that is the charging port. The two pins that are opposite each other are the "hot" pins, and your meter should read about 25 volts, +- 2 volts. If its 0, there is a connection that isn't made from the batteries through to the controller, or the controller or joystick is shot. If you do have power to the joystick, then it's probable that the joystick is shot. A new one from Invacare is pricey, around $1,000.00 I have found a new site that can repair most makes. I have not used them, so cannot vouch for their work, but give them a call and see what you think.

If you don't have power, start at the terminals from the battery, and follow each wire back to the power control box, unplug and replug firmly as you work your way back. Check all fuses on the way. Then check all of the other connectors inside the chair, unplug, and reconnect again. Unplug and reconnect the wires leading into the power control box, and then restart chair. If no lights still, then the power control module is probably the culprit, but the address above fixes those too. The joystick and the power control module work together to make the chair operate safely. Good luck

Any reputable dealer will have a PnG or Qutronix programmer that plugs into the chair in order to program the profiles. This dealer obviously does`nt know that. Call a different dealer.
