Disconnecting the horn, in most cases, should not affect anything else as long as it was done correctly. Beyond that, I have no idea what the question here is.

SOURCE: Blinking charge light on Invacare Zoom 300 scooter

Can you try another charger ?

Is it a onboard charger ? if so they do go wrong, Are they supply MK batteries ?

Check the leads from the charger connection socket to the motor controller board.

SOURCE: oil / gel leak

If it is coming from your motors, it could be very bad. i.e. motor replacement. Sometimes on the side of those motors there is a black plastic cap about the size of a quarter or half dollar, those fall out sometimes and allow gearbox grease to come out. This should`nt be confused with your motor brush caps which are about the size of a pea and have a small **** in them for a screwdriver.DO NOT TAKE THESE OUT.  If the large cap has come out just stick it back in. If you can`t find it you`ll ned to call a dealer to get the part replaced.    If you can still find no prob,your probably going to have to go to a dealer.

SOURCE: where is the reset button on a invacare m51

The controller puts out fault codes though the LEDs. Count them and then look in the operators manual for likely causes. In my experience it is the electronic brakes that fail on these units and they are costly.

SOURCE: I have a invacare wheelchair pronto91 wont move 2

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.

It really can only be one thing. Somewhere on your scooter is a switch for the lights. Try turning it off. If that doesn't work the switch is faulty

Check that you are not in freewheel. If you can push the scooter easily and the rear wheels roll then you are in freewheel. Move the lever to drive postion and turn the scooter on to see if that fixed the problem Hope this helps

Where can i buy replacement carbon brushes for auriga 10 invacare scooter (6 mph model)

Since these are special made electric motors, you are going to have to go back to the dealer that sold you the machine and have them order the parts (brushes) for you. The PDF file for these scooters are found at:***/content/328/349/auriga-spare-parts-june2010.pdf

page 6 will give you the parts number.

If you are mechanically handy(I suppose so as you intend to replace brushes), then you may want to try a maintenance trick first of all. Generally these brushes are are not used up in a DC motor, but fail due to the carbon build up on the armanture of the motor shaft or the wear of the brushes have become so concave that they are making only slight contact on the armanture. If you can, pull the end off of the motor and lightly clean the armanture contact. Clean with some alcohol. Then examine the concave of the brushes, and using an emery board file the points of the arc in the brushes so that you change the deepness of the arc, bringing the center closer to the contact. re-assemble and test.

Have Invacare Auriga 4 scooter about 2yrs old Put into stores about 6 months ago was working fine battery's have always been on charge. Cannot get scooter to move. When I put de-clutching lever in to...

Hi. I have had a few scooters that have had this problem after sitting for a while. The brake lining is stuck to the body of the brake assembly. When the brake is energised by the controller, it can't release.
De-clutch the machine like you did, and try rocking the machine back and forth. If this doesn't work you might have to have a new brake assembly fitted.
The wheels turn in opposite directions, because the drive is through the differential unit in the rear axle. Even a car will do this if the driving axle is raised in the air.
I have also had a few cases of stuck motor brushes in these machines, but from your description, I would say it is the brake assembly.
Good luck. Neil.

Invacare auriga looses power

Hi. Most probably its the throttle pot ( Wig Wag ) thats causing the problem. I am an Invacare service agent and I have changed these many times for this very reason.Also check motor brushes are not worn down or jaming. Good luck. Neil.
