This is most likely a case that the controller/computer(the box that the joystick plugs into down inside the chair)is placing the chair into what is called a "limp-home" mode. It automatically senses something seriously wrong with the chair and starts cutting the power to the motors, such as overheating. If they are still getting hot, it will shut itself down completely, and you can restart after all cools down, but you have a serious problem on your hands. This usually happens when a chair is loaded near or past its maximum weight, and say you try to drive it up a long incline....motors will overheat and it will slow down, then shut down. If it is doing it on a flat surface without being heavily loaded, you have motor problems or controller problems.

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: Has left motor error (3 blinks) checked

Hi. Your problem will be either the free-wheel lever is in the wrong position, or the motor has a stuck or worn carbon brush.
Good luck. Neil.

SOURCE: i have invacare pronto m51 with surestep the spjis

The 9 flash error code indicates a communications fault. The communication fault relates to the communication between the joystick and the control module. The joystick on the arm mount is connected to the control module in the base. When there is a break in the wiring of this wiring harness, also called a bus cable, a fault occurs. This trips the computer and the computer sends out a flash code to the joystick. Simply stated there is a broken or pinched wire between the joystick and controller. Look physically at the wire and check for cuts, breaks or pinches. The best short term repair is to repair the broken wire with solder and heat shrink or tape. You can also use **** splice connectors and tape. The best long term repair is to replace the harness with a part available from Invacare. The most definitive way to diagnose this problem is to read the fault log of the controller using a hand held programmer available to dealers and certified technicians. The number and type of fault codes logged in the controller is another indicator of which
component(s) has failed. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have an invacare Pronto M51 Surestep power chair

If you have had swing away footrests on this chair you can replace them with model PHW93 and must ask to get them in red when you order them from a wheelchair store. If you dont know where a store is that sells Invacare products, call Invacare customer service at 800-333-6900.

why did you change the batteries, did you verify that it wasn't the charger in the first place, sometime the charger will appear to charge but actually isn't. put a meter on one battery then plug in charger if voltage goes up charger is good if not look for loose connections and or bad charger.

I wouuld suspect a controller problem Since the programming is in the controller and it suddenly changed your operation I would expect something screwed up the controller. Have your provider check it with an Invacare programmer to make sure that the settings for your chair are correct in the controller. If Medicare paid for your chair then you can contact Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 and have them send out a tech to work on your chair. They will bill Medicare for most of the repair costs Hope this helps
