Why will charge in chair only last short time ? I have already installed new batteries and replaced charger

Something in the wiring could be draining your battery's when chair is not being used,try unhooking a battery cable if your able to and see if your batterys are lasting longer if they are then obvious something draining your battery,if you have a gauge check it at night when your finish using your chair,then check it the next day when your ready to use it and see if the gauge is at the same reading.just a thought,hope it helps,if you can't take off the cable or aren't sure then don't do it I don't want you to get hurt.

I replaced the battery charger with a quest charger, chair now charges but wont function i guess because of the inhibit feature how can i fix this

A few things to consider: A blown charger fuse can cause the charger inhibit to activate. Determine if all controller connections are plugged into the power base properly. If the 3-pin charger inhibit connector is not plugged in properly, then the charger inhibit feature will activate.

Scooter won't move

Things to check: Drive/Free wheeling switch, brake release lever (this activates an internal micro-switch that enable power to the drive system, battery box connectors (condition of contacts - corroded, missing, loose. etc.); main control cable (corrosion. lose or missing pins, etc). If all these are OK, could be controller or drive control potentiometers (speed, forward, backward) on the handle-bar (tiller).
Good luck!

I have a HP8204B Pride battery charger 24vdc 5a 230vac, the wire to the end connector (3 pin with 2 of the pins bridged) has come away and i don't know which wire (one black, one red) to solder to which...

The red wire is positive and is soldered to pin 1. You can see the 1 on the pin (non solder side) of the plug housing or on the solder side as a raised stamp 1.
The black wire is soldered to the negative pin 2. Two of the pins are bridged to inhibit the power chair operation when the charger is plugged in. Hope this helps.

I bought the new style batteries for my mother-in-laws older modle mini jazzy that have a 1 year guarantee and are expected to last 2 to 3 years. It's been 3 months now and I'm already having issues that...

The most common problem for this power chair involves the connections at the rear of the chair for the VSI controller (joystick). Unplug the large and small electrical connectors at the rear of the chair and inspect for discolored and corroded pins on the plugs. You can clean the flat pins on the large connector with a green synthetic scour pad and WD40. Spray contact electrical contact cleaner on the other pins and plugs.
Check the voltmeter on the back to make sure it is indicating charging. If not, remove the the rear cover and look for a black boot over a fuse holder. Inspect the fuse (7.5 amp ATO) to see if it is good. The on-board chargers on these chairs have a history of going bad, but are easy to replace. That being said, if you have good battery connections, good charger fuse, good cord connections, good voltage meter, then your most likely culprit is your on-board charger. The least expensive and easiest fix is to buy an off board charger and plug it in the front of the VSI (leave the old on-board one in the chair and don't plug in the AC cord).
Check the battery connections to make sure they are tight. Check the charger cord and make sure it is plugged all the way in.
If you have access to a voltmeter you can make electrical checks on all components. For now, I would check the obvious visually and mechanically. The connectors on the rear of the chair coming from the VSI are usually the source of most problems. Hope this helps.

Isabel you could have battery problems or it could be a charger problem. you would need to contact your provider (where you got the chair and ask them to check it for you) Now Plug the charger in for a couple of hours and look at the light on the charger (it is located under the rear of the chair) if it is green then it indicates a full charge if you have no light then it could be that the batteries are getting the charge or the chharger is not operating A tech will haveto determine the problem for you. Sorry I couldn't give you a instant fix Hope this helps

Pride Jet 2 power chair with with 3 red and 3 yellow lights flashing. Batteries checked ok under load, all connections have been checked. I moved the chair and it would not move again. Just that quick.

Hi. The fault code you have is called the "Inhibit active".
It can be caused by a blown charger fuse, which causes the charger inhibit to activate.
Also if the 3-pin charger inhibit connector is not plugged in properly, or the connector is faulty, then the charger inhibit feature will activate.
Hope this helps. Neil.

Jazzy 1103 Ultra batteies are good but?

If a fuse is blown, no lights will come on. One red light is an indication that the batteries are too low to operate the chair. Try using a different charger on it. The 1103 has an on-board charger, but you can charge the chair using an off-board charger that you can acquire on ebay for about $50.00 or so. Make sure it has a 3-pin XLR connector (most do), that will match with the 3-pin female post located on your joystick. Plug it in and see if that doesn't power up the batts. I just did a search on ebay and found these.

The internal battery charger has stopped working

You don't have to buy a new charger from C.T.M. and pay the high mark-up price. Any powerchair charger with a three-pin XLR connector will charge your chair. The is a femal XLR connection located on your joystick pointing out the front. Plug the charger in here.

Ebay has a lot of 24 volt charger for sale for about $25-$50 dollars instead of paying CTM $150.00. Search for 24 volt xlr charger. The end of the charger that plugs into your chair should look like this picture. Make sure it does before ordering. plgxlr.gif
