Many times a brake lever reset can resolve this issue that is preventing the PWC from operating.
MPV5 Power Wheelchair Break LeversMPV5 – The brake levers are located on the front of the Power Wheel Chair just above the footplate. To reset the brakes on the MPV5 Power Wheel Chair make sure both levers are pushed to the down position then pull one lever at a time to the full up position.
FWD and XHD power chair break releaseTEK FWD and TEK XHD - The brake levers are located on the front of the Power Wheel Chair under the label that reads “Drive” and “Push”. To reset the brakes on the TEK FWD or XHD Power Wheel Chair make sure both levers are pushed to the down position then pull one lever at a time to the full up position.
If the lights on the controller continue to flash make sure the controller is not locked.
A 6 blink means the motors are in free wheel position. Turn chair off put freewheel levers in the locked position. You should not be able to push the chair when the motors are engaged. Leave the levers locked then turn the chair on again. If that does not work the motor/s could be unplugged.
I have one of these chairs, and it quit on me last week. The problem is that the up/down clutch is getting stuck. First, download the service manual here: http://www.nodevice.com/manual/newmans/panasonic/EP1004NASIMPzip/get25127.html After opening it up, locate the up/down clutch. It is on the bottom right of the control module. Use a 10mm socket to remove the bolt that holds the belt pulley on. Remove the belt pulley and under it is another big metal disc - the clutch. The problem is that there is a black rubber gasket under the clutch disc that decomposes and makes the clutch stick to it. I scraped the black rubber off and reassembled, and now, it works perfectly. In my case, the rollers didn't even work. This is because the massage clutch, which operates the rollers, also had the same problem.
If it is the older VSI controller, turn on chair. as the battery lights scroll, hold the joystick in the (UP) position until you hear a beep. Then immediately place the joystick in the (down) position until you hear a beep. then place the joystick in center position, once you hear the beep for the final time, it should be unlocked.
If you have a Dynamic controller, turn on chair then press the horn button to unlock.
I'm having the same problem with the red light on my Q6000Z PC not going out, no matter what position that the seat is in. Yesterday I lifted the seat to change my furnice filter and when I lower the seat light wouldn't go out and the chait would not move. and yes I did try going up and down several times. I do have a Quantum joystick controler, but I don't know how to use it. Can anybody help me? Or at least give me a website name where I can go to fond out.
There are two levers located on the base of the chair on the left and right sides. Depending on the model, they will be located on top of the base on the front section of the chair base, or on the rear or on the lower sides. Most rotate 90 degrees to disengage the gears so you can manually push the chair. Others are moved up and down, or in and out. Return them to the locked position when done.
The motor operates on low voltage DC current Robert. You will have a negative and a positive, like a car. The center connector is a common, meaning that it will be connecting to the motor whenever you switch is activated to make it go, and the other two are positive and negative to control either up or down. These should be color coded red and black and will go to the outside connectors and the remaining wire will go to the center common connection. Hook it up and then test the chair lift button. If it doesn't lift, you need to reverse the two outside wires for correct polarity, or just use the switch controls opposite; up for down, down for up.
The clicking is the mechanical part of the switch, but the electrical part may still be bad. In all the chairs I have serviced, it has always been the switch. The switch itself goes for about $25 plus labor to change it, and the whole control unit retails for about $100. the best test is to take the controller apart and short out the center wire to either side and check the chair for movement.
