Question about Health & Beauty

Open Question

My spouses Invacare StormTDX3 wheelchair has a "MPJ error" message. It showed up right after unplugging the charger. Now his wheelchair will not work. Is there anything we can do - or should we take it in for repair? Hoping there is something we can reset or do here at home - it's such a hassle to get it in for repair.

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

The three light flash indicates a short circuit between the left motor(as you are sitting in the chair)and the battery. Check all the wiring from the control box to the motor and make sure it is not damaged in any way. If it is okay, you have most likely fried the left side motor. A new motor-gearbox assembly for this chair runs in the neighborhood of $1,400.00, or you can take the motor off and take it in for a full rebuild for about $250 or so. Unplug the joystick and remove the seat and cowl. Jack up the left side with both motors in gear. Remove the center nut cover and take off the nut holding on the wheel taking care to retain the key that slides into the groove on the axle. Disconnect the wiring plug to the motor and remove the six bolts holding the motor to the frame. Separate the gearbox from the motor and take the motor to a rewind shop for repairs. Reinstall and it should be good to go.

Did you replace both batteries? How old is the chair? Sometimes the on-off keypad becomes worn and does not make contact with the on-off switch. When charging the joystick lights can light up but after unplugging they should remain on. When you plug in the charger look under the rear cover at the charger you should see 2 lights, one red and one yellow to indicate that you are charging the chair if you do not see both lights lit then the charger is bad or has a blown fuse. Only a Tech will be able to tell what is wrong. If Medicare purchased your chair then they will pay for most of repair costs. Contact your provider or a repair service company

Charger seems to have both red and green lites flashing at the same time no sequence and both batteries connected read 4.0 VDC, are these chargers repariable or throw aways


Your manual is here. The section on charging states, that green blinking means your battery is fully charged but blinking red means that your charger is faulty. I would say repairable.

1. Plug the female connector of the AC power cord (supplied) to the AC receptacle on the charger and plug in the male connector on the AC power cord into the wall outlet.

2. The On/Off LED indicator is blinking RED, this is abnormal. Unplug AC power cord from the on-board battery charger and wall outlet. Charger may need to be replaced. Contact an Invacare dealer or qualified technician.

3. When the On/Off LED indicator light is Off, charger is Off.

4. When the Charge LED indicator light is YELLOW, the batteries are charging.

5. When the Charge LED indicator light is solid GREEN, the batteries are fully charged (as their condition will allow).

6. When charging is complete, unplug the male connector of the AC power cord from the wall outlet and then unplug the female connector of the AC power cord from the AC receptacle on the charger.

How to recharge but I get a flashing red light on transformer in battery box. this is a Invacare Pronto M91 Electric Wheelchair


The red light on the transformer/Charger means the charger is bad. Sometimes it can also be battery harness wiring. Most often it is the charger that needs replaced.

How do I get my pronto m91 out of charging mode?


The M91 has an onboard charger. When unplugging the charger power cord from the wall outlet does not stop the chair from being in the charge mode, The charger has to be unplugged from the wheelchair wiring harness or main control module under the plastic body parts. The on-board chargers fail like this sometimes.

I had a wrench showing on my wheelchair. Now the wrench is gone and the unit will not turn off..


Hello, If the joystick won't turn off it is a joystick problem. You can unplug the joystick cable from the joystick to save battery if you need to. This kind of problem means your joystick will need to be repaired at Invacare or replaced by a dealer of Invacare chairs.

Someone gave me a pronto m51 sure step motorized wheelchair but no manual was given..my question is: Is it safe to charge the battery overnight? Is there any danger of overcharging? If anyone knows for...


Jo, nope you are safe. Most of the chargers are designed to cut off and go into trickle charge once they sense that the batteries are fully charged. The problem with overcharging comes after 18 hours or so. You should never leave the charger plugged into the chair for more than 24 hours. On the M51 the charger is built into the chair so just plug it in when you go to bed and unplug it when you get up and you'll be ok. You can check for full charge by looking at the charger there should be a red light and a green light when fully charged. Hope this helps
