Question about Pride Jazzy 1103 Ultra Standard Power Chair
Chair stopped working when I turned the speed knob. Chair is fully charged. All controller lights are on, none flashing. Wheels are engaged. Both motors work when controller is by-passed and they are connected directly to power. A disconnected motor will return a VSA diagnostic flash code (two reds for left motor, three reds and one yellow for the right motor), but there are no other flashing code lights when the motors are connected. I can find no loose or poorly connected wiring. Pride will not give or sell a wiring schematic. The Pilot controller booklet, available from the Pride site, gives very little help other than a table of the diagnostic code lights. Don't know where to go from here. No insurance; I am on my own. Any help will be most appreciated.
Estragon, I hope you got your chair rolling, and I hope idiots that don't know anything about them would stop throwing **** against the wall.
For your benefit and others, if they happen to trip over this situation, here's my take from hundreds of calls on these kind of critters.
First rule: Don't believe the "black box" codes; ever. The fault codes come from a known working controller, with all well in the world.
Analogy is if your brain tells you that your left foot is asleep, it probably is. But if your brain's been whacked by a baseball bat, bottle of Tequila, or some whackytobacky, and your brain thinks everything is bad, then mayhaps it is the brain. Long story short, you have to have a known good, working motor to plug into the two-motor test to eliminate a black box mis-read. These guys often give off false motor faults on the wrong motor, or, on both motors if the controller is jigged out, and than you get all kinds of wrong flash codes. Before you spend $900 to replace a motor, take it, actually both motors, if possible, to a local electric motor repair shop and have them hit it first.
That's cheap, and will get you pointed in the right direction.

You need a factory service manual to fix this yourself, I think you mentioned that it can not be the motor controller logic board or it would give a code, nothing is farther from the truth, yes most times a code to indicate a fault is set, but not always, it would be nice if it was 100%, then everyone could fix anything electronic with no need of technicians. In any event In any event I will bet the controller is defective.

I dont think any of the part is faulty .its the problem of control board that is not faulty but it has just got hanged in or you can say stopped in stand by mode.to resolve this the board has to be removed from the wheel chair unit for a hour or so.then again reinserted as it was.remove all the external and removable cable plugged in the board.as when you remove the cable then only it will get reset after when you reconnect the cables/wires.do not remove the wires which are soldered on the board.only remove that wires that are plugged in the main board.wait for 1 hour then connect it again and check out.it will work. thanks .keep updated.please do rate the assistance.thank you for using fixya.

You will need to take it in for repair. 8 bar flash usually means you have a bad joystick/controller. They can sometimes send it in to the manufacturer to have it repaired. Find a reputable dealer and relay this info to them.

Your joystick may be locked, may be as simple as pushing horn button 2X
and i ve red someperon posting here in fixya that The battery of the chair is dead. It will say its charged but then when you take it off it will die.
Check to make sure the motors are both engaged and not in the freewheel position
hope i was helpful somewat...
good luck with ur chair...
