Question about Jet 3 Ultra Power Chair

1 Answer

Pride Jet 3 Ultra 4500 rpm, unit is completely dead, am I missing an auxiliary charger or is it built into the unit?

I just bought a usedJet 3 ultra, it has no power whatsoever. I assume the batteries need replaced due to sitting for an extended period. It came with a cord only that has the 3 prong side that goes into the wall and one that goes directly into the port under the seat on the base. It tried to charge and amp gauge didn't move whatsoever, and there isn't any lights on the controller . Is there supposed to be a charger that goes with this unit or is it built into the unit itself. There isn't any auxiliary ports on the controller or anywhere else to plug anything else in. I checked the circuit breaker by the foot rest as well as a breaker fuse in the panel, both are not tripped. Thanks, Gary

I suggest that you start with determining the condition of your batteries and work outwards from there. Dead batteries just don't want to take a charge. Test your batteries with a meter before you start part swapping. The internal charger is only about 4 amps so it will take many hours to charge a 24volt system.

SOURCE: jet3 ultra power chair wont charge

If you have access to a voltmeter,put it on your battery then plug in the charger; if the voltage rises that will tell you that your charger is working.

Power cords for the Jet3 are standard computer cords. ANY desk top computer power cord will work. Pick one up at RadioShack for 9 bucks.

If the batteries sit for over a couple months, you'll have to replace them. They are U1 type (pair).

SOURCE: Jet 3 Ultra, batteries 1 yr old, charge voltage

Mark Batteries your charger is putting our enuf 13.15 volts for each battery so after charging all night you should be reading about 13 volts on each. If your batts are only 12 volts after all night charge then batteries are weak Hope this helps

SOURCE: When I plug in my

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

When I turn on controller power the speed lights flash slowly. Joystick does nothing and chair is dead. Chair is Pride Jet 3 Ultra.

Do all of the speed lights flash at the same time or do they ripple from left to right? If they ripple from left to right the chair is in lock mode and you can use the unlock procedures from my tips to unlock. If they are all flashing at the same time you have an internal joystick problem and the joystick needs to be replaced Hope this helps

You can use the AC charger cord from a computer as a replacement for the AC cord of the charger. If the AC cord plugs into the wall and plugs into the charger or charger receptacle on the back of the power chair, you can use it.
If I remember correctly, This chair has a 4 Amp on-board charger which has an AC receptacle on the back of the chair to plug in an AC cord. The off-board chargers take a universal AC cord which will work with a universal computer AC cord. If the AC cord plugs in, use it.

We have a problem with the joystick controller on my Mom's Jet 3 Ultra Pride. Is it possible to fix that?

The joystick is a sealed unit. If there is a problem with the joystick then you have to replace the whole unit.

Scooter is dead

Are you sure your charger is working? Is the free-wheel lever engaged? Also the charger has an inhibit line, it will not run when the charger is plugged in.
