It is not shutting off. You need to bring it to an expert for service. Your problem sounds like it is electronic, not mechanical.

To stop it from discharging you can disconnect the batteries. The batteries should be hooked up in series 24vdc not parallel 12vdc.

Your batteris need to be replaced with fresh, gel-sealed batteries. These take U-1 batteries, which are rated at about 32-34 amphours. They are pricey, about $100.00 each, so you need two for about $200.00. Completely charge the chair after new batteries are installed, and you should get a good 14 miles range out of it.

    Also, I should add that the "clicking" noise you mentioned is normal. The automatic charging system for powerchairs and scooters give an intermittent charge to the batteries to bring them up slowly because they are sealed, air-tight batteries. This allows the battery to settle down and not build up gas which cannot vent, thus creating a hazard of the case expanding and blowing apart. The red light blinking is a code which indicates dead batteries.

I have a quatum and I get around 6-7 miles with a full charge on flat lands. But I live in a very hilly area so the battery can lose 60% going 3 miles with extreme hills. I know this does not help you, but I thought the info would be useful when you get it fixed.

How long can i run chair on one charge'

With new, fully charged batteries, you can get a good 8 miles at full speed with a normal weight load on the chair. The chair goes about 4-5 mph, so an hour and a half or more at full speed on level terrain. Be sure to always recharge daily, keep the chair on the charger when not in use(batteries will die if you don't)and avoid running the batteries all the way down....try to stay in the top 2/3 charge range and you will get more life.

Locate the two wires from the circuit breaker attach one wire (black if marked) to the negative post of the rear battery and attach the other wire (red if marked) to the positive post of the front battery. Locate the two wires coming from the power module plug with a red and black wire. Attach the red wire to the rear battery positive post and the black wire to the front battery negative post. attach the joystick to the nine pin plug at the rear of the chair and turn it on. You should have power at the joystick and the chair should work. Disconnect the joystick put the shroud cover back on grease the seat post and reattach the seat then plug in the joystick and charger plug at the rear of the chair. Charge the batteries before use and charge them overnite for the next 20 days. If you use the chair daily charge your batteries everynite while you sleep unplug in the morning. If you don't use the chair daily charge at least once per week or after you use the chair. Always put the chair up fully charged if you are going to be out of the chair for an extended time the disconnect the batteries at the large plug going to the power module Hope this helps you

Have just purchased a Jet 2 power chair. The top speed is less than walking speed. Is this normal or is there some thing wrong?

Sandy Well could be. Hows that for an answer? It depends on the batteries and the speed setting. If the batteries are getting weak then they won't drive the chair as fast as new or good batteries. If the speed is not set to max then it won't go as fast as you like You can set the speed on the joystick. Now if the speed is set to max and you are still going slow and the batteries are new or good then it could be the program. Check with a provider(Person or Company that sells chairs) in your area and ask if they can check the programmed settings for you. If they have a PP1 programmer they should be able to easily check the settings and adjust them higher if they aren't already set there. Good Luck Hope this helps you

To slow, i need it to go faster

Are your batteries fully charged? Are the batteries 2 years old or older? Even with a full charge older batteries will not generate amperage to make the chair go as fast as when new. Also the motors tend to slow down with age due to brushes wearing down. Now, if the batteries are new and the motors are not that old then you need to find a wheelchair provider that has a PP1 programmer and have then check the settings for forward speed etc. If the speed is not set to 100 then they can increase the forward speed to 100%. Hope this helps you

How do I increase the speed . It seems that it ran faster on the straight and now I don't feel with all the bars lit that the speed is like it used to be. Please tell me what I can do to make sure I will...

How long have you noticed the decrease in speed? Are you charging the batteries regularly? Have you checked your air pressure in your drive tires?
If the batteries are getting old or the power chair has been stored for a while, the batteries may not be taking a full charge. If your speed indicator is showing full like always but the power chair is not responding like it used to, it may be a battery issue.
As you operate the power chair, listen for noise and pay attention to see if there is any vibration, this may indicate a mechanical problem that is causing power drain.
If not, your power chair may still be within normal parameters, just not "new out of the box" anymore. Make sure that you decrease your speed when going up inclines to avoid excess wear on the motors.
Good luck!

Avalon won't start, fast clicking noises

Sounds like a dead battery issue. If someone can jump start you with battery cables connect red to red post on battery and black to your car frame or other ground. If the car starts easily it indicates a discharged battery. Then you need to determine why the battery is discharged. If you can drive to a local autoparts store they can use a machine to do a battery and charging system diagnosis at the curbside. Autozone, Advance, or Oreilly all do this. If the battery is the original from the car when purchased it is probably time to replace it. If its a new one (2 years or less) the culprit may be the alternator. The clicking noise is a dead give away that its a battery or alternator issue. The clicking by the way is the starter trying to engage and turn motor over to crank it. Its not getting enough power to turn the engine over (a tough task) and is clicking.

your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

Mower will not start will make clicking noise. did start at for one minute

Your battery is dead. Replace it.
In the winter keep a smart trickle charger on the battery to prevent it from discharging. Lead/acid batteries lose 1% of their charge per day and are basically junk in 3 months. They have to be kept charged.
