Question about NRS Hoveround MPV 5 - Used Power Wheelchair
Am trying to ressurect a Penny-Giles PILOT joystick power controller that fits a Hoveround MPV4 Power Chair. The unit is not activating the regulators to turn on the unit. If anyone has had experience to component level, any information would be useful. Thanks.
I've never had much luck getting information like this for most joysticks, and have never gotten it for Penny+Giles stuff. You may have the best luck looking for a used replacement joystick on eBay or Craig's List.

SOURCE: Hoveround MPV4 Just quit
The Hoveround MPV-4 had 2 different types of battery connectors. The old type had threaded edges that you would plug in, then screw them tight. The new type has a release clip on one side. They switched from the old to the new because of continuity problems such as this. Which type of battery connector do you have?

Firstly, it is bad news to use an extension cord with the charger as it can get very hot. It will sometimes take 8-12 hours to get a full charge on the batteries. If the light does not go to green on the charger, the batteries may be damaged and not able to take a charge. This is especially true if the Power chair was stored after your father in law died; the gel in the batteries may have gone solid. The lights on the controller will go left to right then back if the charger is connected properly.
The brake release knobs both need to be in the UP/DRIVE position for the motors to engage.

Count how many lights are flashing to determine the root cause of the problem. Here is alink that may help:
The abrupt stop may have knocked something loose.

You will need tie downs to the power chair. It is a metal piece the fits over the chair post and sits under the seat and had two metal loops to hook on to. The Hoveround field technician will install it for you.You need to order the tie downs from Hoveround, your insurance will most likely NOT cover the cost.
