Check your battery connections, make absolutely sure it is connected correctly.

Place a multimeter in the XLR plug (joystick). You should have around 26V reading if batteries are connected correctly.

Check the free wheel levers. place the chair in free wheel and move back and forth a couple of times. Place the chair back into drive, turn on controller and try to drive. ( This is not typically associated with a clicking sound but will ensure your brakes are not on)

If you are still hearing a clicking sound, it could be a problem with the brake or a motor. A qualified technician should really look at it for you.

SOURCE: Hoveround mpv4 does not work led flash when turned

This 8-light code is a joystick controller problem. It is an internal problem with the circuit board located inside the joystick. The entire joystick assembly would need to be replaced in this situation. If you are in need of a joystick, I have several for sale.

SOURCE: i have a 2000 mpv4 hoveround that has only been

Assuming it has fresh batteries (within the last 90 days or so), you could expect to get $200-300 for it. After five years, powerchairs have little value as they lose about 20%/year average, but actually a lot more the first year, etc. like a car. New batteries for this chair cost about $135-155, and it requires two, so that's basically the value of the chair. If the batteries are shot, consider donating it to a charitable group and taking a tax write-off instead.

SOURCE: need manual for hoveround mpv4

Hoveround doesn't publish the manual online. Go to their website and get the contact number to call and request a manual...usually at a fee...they ****. Next time, buy a Pride, Invacare, or whomever has the owners manuals online.

SOURCE: Chair will power up, however

The number of bars that are blinking will also help to indicate what the problem is. Fault codes are located in the back of the owner's manual.Try doing the brake reset as previously suggested or the lock out sequence noted in the manual; call it in if neither of those steps help.

SOURCE: where do we buy new battery for hoveround MPV4?

The battery needed is a U1 battery, 12 volt,33 amps. You can find them at any battery warehouse store like Batteries Plus, Interstate Batteries, etc. The cost between seventy five and one hundred twenty dollars each and you will need to replace both at the same time. If you are the original owner of your Power Chair, your health insurtance may cover the replacement.

I have a hoveround mpv4 that has a fault code of 8 bars I rang wires out from controller to j-box and everyone was ok if its the board where do i go to get a new one and how much do they cost.

bbass you will have to order a joystick from Hoverround or a hoveround provider if you want a new one. You can also check on e-bay or with a provider that might have a good used joystick. cost could be as much as 600.00 Hope this helps

When I power up my MPV4 I get a 9 flashing led error. Is there something I can do to rectify this error?

rakoble the 9 flashes error code can indicate the brake lever not in drive mode or if you have the electric seat its not all the way down or finally a controller problem and on the Hoveround thats the joystick. Check the brake levers and the seat if you have that on your chair. If the first two are ok then its the joystick and you'll have to get a new one. Hope this helps

If your Power Wheel Chair has been sitting idle for a while, the batts may need to be completely replaced. There is a gel inside the batts that need to have a current run through them via the charger on a regualr basis otherwise it will solidify. If the charger lights are onm you have connected the charger correctly for over 24 hours and the batteries are still not showing they have been charge, there may be damaged cells which means both batteries need to be totally replaced.

Hoveround rear tire needs inflating

I don't think you have an MPV4. That model has 2 rear caster tires that are solid and require no inflation. The front drive tires have a valve stem sticking out of the center rim that is easily accessible. Make sure your power chair is gray and says Hoveround on it.
