Sometimes it just takes some real elbow grease to remove those. Try two people one on each side.

I just had the same problem with my uncle's power chair. The number of "blinks" indicates a problem code to the technicians. My chair needed the joystick control assembly replaced. Once replaced, evrything was back to normal. 'Not a cheap fix but much needed. Good luck my friend!!

SOURCE: need to remove the bad batteries Jet 3 power chair

Hello Donald ,
You may have solved this problem by now ,but just in case you have not, here goes.

Make sure the chair is turned off and engauged in the drive mode meaning not in the free wheeling mode. This way it will not roll around on you during the battery change out.

Go to the rear of the chair and slightly turn the two black plastic lock pins,one on each side they actually lock the small )) shaped cover in place. Turn these with your fingers or you can also insert a dime in the slot on top of each pin to turn them . You will be able to tell when they have unlocked as the )) shaped cover will be loose. Lift the cover up and under it you will find the battery connector, unplug it and leave the cover off for now.

Next ,move to the front of the chair and just to the rear of the footplate you will find a locking pin that runs through the lower rear bar of the footplate as well as the chair frame itself . Pull this pin completely out. Once done you should be able to pull the entire footplate assembly out torward you, Black plastic front cover included. Once you have it pulled outward lift it upward and it should lift completely off the chair. This done , you should actually be looking at the front battery which is sitting in a black plastic tray. Gently but with a firm grip grab the tray anyplace you can and slowy begin to slide it out from under the chair torward you taking care not to tangle the battery connector at the rear with any other wiring on its way out. Once you have the tray slid out into the open ,you will be looking at both batteries after which you will need to unhook the straps that secure the Batteries to the tray after which you will need grab your wrenches and remove the battery harness itself from each battery. You may want to do just one battery at a time this way you'll have less wiring to keep track of when wiring in the new Batteries. The Batteries in your Jet 3 are a size known as U-1 deep cycle sealed maint. free batts, You can use either Gel Cell or seale3d LA replacements . Though they are much cheaper, you cannot use lawn tractor batteries. Though they look the same the internal technology between medical powered mobility batteries and tractor batteries are entirely different. The latter would only run your chair for maybe a half hour or so before needing charge.
Take great care to make sure your wiring hookups are correct and that you position the rear connector plug to the rear of the tray. This way you will be able to locate it easier once you have slid the tray back in under the chair and it is time to go to the rear of the chair and reconnect that plug. As for everything else ,reattach it in reverse of the way you removed it including remembering to slide the lockpin back into the front footplate frame. Give a tug on the footplate when done to make sure it is locked and secure.
In closing I offer this valuable advice : When working with any of these batteries, always were safety glasses or goggle and gloves (terminals are lead). I also advise removal of metal rings ,watches, bracelets etc that could create a short when reaching in and around the battery terminal. Take great care with your tools and wrenches in making sure you keep and eye on both ends of the tools at all times. This way you will not accidentally cross the posts of the battery. Take your time ,use proper safety technique and you'll do fine. The following is Pride Mobility's step by step for battery change out and is basically the same as I have sent . Can never have to much info but can always find yourself with not enough. Take Care


To replace the batteries:
1. Turn off the power to the controller.
2. Make sure that the power chair is in drive mode. See III. "Your Power Chair."
3. Turn the rear shroud fasteners one-quarter turn in any direction. See figure 6.
4. Remove the rear shroud.
5. Unplug the battery connector. See figure 26.
6. Remove the retaining pin from the foot platform and lift the platform up and away from the power base. See figure 19.
7. Slide the battery tray forward.
8. Unfasten the reusable strap around the front battery.
9. Disconnect the wiring harness from the front battery.
10. Remove the front battery.
11. Unfasten the reusable strap around the rear battery.
12. Disconnect the wiring harness from the rear battery.
13. Remove the rear battery.
14. Place a new rear battery on the battery tray. Make sure that the terminals are facing forward.
15. Fasten the reusable strap around the rear battery.
16. Connect the wiring harnesses to the rear battery.

SOURCE: pride mobility Jet 3 Ultra Power Chair 7 flashing

a 7 Flashe code. There is a joystick fault. Make sure the joystick is in the center position and then power off and on again. Check all your couplings. make sure when turning on the unit you only mash the power button for 1 sec. 2-3 sec will put the unit in "Lock out mode".
This ierror will also be present if the joystick is off center when powered up. If you experience these symptoms, you must first make sure there is no physical damage to the joystick preventing it from returning to the center position. Then turn the power off and back on again (making sure the joystick is not depressed in any direction. If the joystick repeats this error, the controler much be replaced. smithrmrm70@hotmail.com

SOURCE: HOW DO I REMOVE THE SEAT FROM A JET 3 POWER CHAIR

It has a lock lever on the side. Push the lever and turn the seat slightly while lifting up with both hands. Sometimes, they need a pretty hard **** to get it to release, but it will come right off.

On ultra jet 3 there is a 3 prong outlet below the seat on the right & has cord that goes to normal outlet is that how to charge it


Jet 3 Ultra www.pridemobility.com 33
VI. BATTERIES AND CHARGING
To charge the batteries using the off-board charger:
1. Position the front of your power chair next to a standard
electrical outlet.
2. Be certain the controller power is turned off and the
freewheel levers are in the engaged position. See III.
"Your Power Chair."
3. Plug the off-board charger into the off-board charger/
programming socket on the controller.
See figure 25.
4. Plug the off-board charger into the electrical outlet

You should use the charger supplied with the power chair. It is
the safest, most efficient tool to charge the batter-ies. We do not recommend using other types of
chargers (e.g., an automotive battery charger).

How do you increase the speed in Jet3 power chair


I take it you are talking about increasing the maximum speed beyond the maximum the chair is set for now! the max listed speed for the jet 3 is 4mps, so if your chair is doing that there is only changing a load of hardware to increase speed past that (it is very costly) if your chair is second hand it may be that the chairs programming has been changed to reduce the max speed say for in-door use or for elderly with slow reactions to better control the chair, if that is the case it depends on the controller you have it would need a programmer box, you can buy these on ebay and the like or you could take it to a mobility shop and see if they will change it, a lot of these shops will offer to do it free to try and get your future custom, it only takes a couple of mins, most will just plug in to the charge / data port on the controller, select from the menu and adjust the speed etc. hope that helps.

Batt. were left uncharged for a year. how do I recharge them. they don,t charge with the charger on the wheelchair.


You can't recharge them. they are dead and if you could they wouldn't last. You will have to spring for 2 new batteries. Check with an Interstate battery outlet and purchase 2 U1 sealed batteries for your chair charge before use and charge daily for 20 days to break them in. If you don't use the chair daily charge at least once a week Hope this helps

Jet 3 Ultra, batteries 1 yr old, charge voltage only 26.3 volts output from onboard charger when batts drained after extended use. After charging overnight, batts are 12 volts each, but chair goes 1.5...


Mark Batteries your charger is putting our enuf 13.15 volts for each battery so after charging all night you should be reading about 13 volts on each. If your batts are only 12 volts after all night charge then batteries are weak Hope this helps

Battery will not fully charge but will run with partial charge


Two things can be wrong, first your batts may be old and need new ones. Have them load tested at an auto part store. Most powerchairs use two 12 volt batts. If you batts are good you should have between 12.5 and 13.5 volts on a surface charge and 11.5 to 12.5 on a load test charge. Second, if you had your chair stored away for a couple of months then your batts died and need to be replaced. If you are luck a "boost charge" might work. If you are planing to keep it stored for months at a time, you must charge the chair once every couple of weeks to keep batts fresh.

WHAT MAKES THE CHAIR NOT MOVE WHEN CHARGING?


You cannot make a powerchair operate while it is charging. For safety purposes the power cuts out when charging batts. The only power is going to the batteries.
