The seat height can be adjusted by removing the seat and raising up the 4 seat pillars on the bottom frame. With the pivot seat model you can raise the center post seat pillar.

SOURCE: won't move pronto m51

Three lights flashing on your chair indicate a left motor fault. Make sure that all of the connections inside the shroud are tight by physically testing them. If all of the connections are good, and the fuses are good, then it's time for a trip to an authorized repair facility. Here is a link to the M51 owners manual if you haven't one. Page 24 has the fault code guide.
http://www.invacare.com/doc_files/1125085.pdf

The controller monitors all of the functions on the chair, brakes, motors, joystick, charger etc. The three flash fault indicates an "open" circuit. Open, like a switch or blown fuse is open, or a wire is cut or burned in half, or a connector is unconnected, or partially connected. The latter is what you are hoping for. Wires burned in half is the usual cause for a motor fault, and with powerchairs, is usually the result of the chair getting stuck in or against something it can't get out of and the operator over-amping the motors. Motors do, just go bad sometimes, for no reason. Very rarerly, however.

You can also check the brushes on the motor too. There's two quarter-sized black plastic screw-plugs on the ends of the motor opposite each other. Unscrew them and examine the brushes. The springy coils should be springy. Overheating can cause them to be brittle, or even burned in two. Check the lench of the brush, the dark rectangular cube at the end of the springs. It should be curved and polished at the end, and a little over a half-inch long. If it is near a 1/4 inch, it needs replaced, or if there is any evidence of overheating, replace. Good luck.

SOURCE: My wheelchair dose not move

The chair has two levers, one for each motor, that disengage it for freewheeling, or pushing the chair without power. These take it out of gear. Place the levers in the locked, gear-engaged position and it should go for you. Here's a link for the manual for your chair, and it will show you where the location is to place it in gear.http://www.invacare.com/doc_files/1125085J.pdf

you may have a current rollback problem you will need to charge the Chair for 14hrs. with the Joystick on! This will reset the circuit. Charge with the joystick on! It is okay it won't hurt a thing, in fact from now on always charge with the joystick on.

Light come on controller no flashing code lights joy stick does not work


The M51 could have the motor clutch levers in the free wheel/push mode and the joystick will not blink if this is the case. Make sure that the chair cannot be pushed. If it can be pushed it means it is in free wheel and you need to lock the motors in gear.

If it is in gear and the joysticks green light does not change color or blink it could be that the joystick is bad. When nothing happens and the lights don't blink when you push the joystick knob the chairs controller basically isn't recognizing the joystick movement.
Time to have the joystick repaired or more. Have a technician look at it.

How do I troubleshoot the issue? I just purchased an older invacare pronto M51 sure step., I charged the batteries over night, it will not move. There are 3 flashing lights in front of joystick? I cant...


The 3 lights are blinking a diagnostic code. One code for batteries that are to weak is a 2 blink. The 3 lights blink together between 1 and 7 times then they all stop for a second then repeat the same amount again and again. Post the code here if you don't have a manual to look it up.

How do I adjust the seat height


Depending on the style of chair. If the seat is supported by 4 individual posts, or a single post. You will have to remove the seat either way. If it is 4 posts, you will have to remove the retaining pins and raise each post. If it is a single post, usually this has a bolt that needs to be loosened and removed before you can raise the post.

When operating the Pronto M51 power wheelchair with the joystick, it will only move forward and backward. It will not turn. What do you think the problem is?


I would suggest that the micro switches that the joy stick operate have become faulty or got out of adjustment. contact the makers service agent to fix the problem

Invacare pronto m51 moving very slow. moves free and easy when in neutral


Check that the speed control on your joystick is set to high. If it is then you probably have a battery problem. Even with all the lights lit on the joystick you can have one battery of the two on the chair that is not charging fully. This will cause the M51 to creep and not work correctly

Control box on pronto m51 wheelchair don;t work


When you say "control box" I assume that you mean the joystick. If there is no power to the joystick be sure that the batteries are fully charged and be sure that they do not need to be replaced, also be sure that the cables were not put on wrong. If all that checks out then be sure that all the cables are tight.

If all these do not solve the problem then you need to have the joystick tested.
