If it was a steep uphill climb and hot weather, the controller will sense an overheat and shut the chair down to prevent frying a motor. Let the chair cool off for several minutes, and then proceed slowly to prevent a recurrence. If you are close to the weight capacity of the chair, going up hills really tax the motors so you need to take your time, go slowly, and stop occassionally to let them cool off if it is a long grade.

Also, most chairs have a tilt sensor in them that will cut the power if the chair is too inclined. Getting it level again, turning off and restarting after a few seconds should do the trick.

2002 Lincoln LSE 3.9L 124,000 MI. stalls after a stop or hard braking.

This may be a "sticky injector"

This would cause overfuelling - and a sudden rise in RPM. The ECU will see this and compensate - by shutting the injectors down lower - , which then stalls the vehicle.

Worth a try runnig cleaner through them.

Jazzy 600 stops all of a sudden while driving, chair icon and wrench icon on romote appears

Likely 2, 3, 4 or 5 bar flash code. If motors are made by a company like "ELE...." then motor wiring is likely bad inside wire insulation where wires go into motor cap. Rebuild motors and try again. This is a common problem with these motors.

If i have new fully charged batteries, what is the range of the chair?

That is a hard question to answer. Your range of distance can differ due to terrain. If you are riding the chair around the mall you might get 5-7 miles. If you are riding it on a sidewalk you might get 3-5 miles. If you ride it in the grass you might get 1 mile. The best answer I can give you is that most people can go 1-3 days between charges. You also have to consider your weight. If you are 100 lbs or 350 lbs. there are always factors. Since the chair does not measure distance it would be unfair to give you a number based on distance to gauge your battery life. You need to watch the battery gauge and determine what your chair is able to do.

Getting no lights

first only charge the chair prior to using it, constant charging will dry out the batteries. though not likely the batteries now sounds like a loose connection somewhere, batteries just don't stop they fade out slowly. look for loose connector

Hello, After fully charging my mother's Jazzy power chair overnight, the rear battery indicator/pointer shows zero meaning it's fully charged. I leave it unplugged all day and then by 5pm when I check...

Sorry but it sounds like weak batteries. I would replace both batteries and after installation fully charge before use. Then ask Mom to use the chair more each day so you can charge them overnight each day for the next 20 days. It will break in the batteries and get them operating at 100%. If you can get her to use it more and charge it overnite and always put it up at full charge the batteries should last 2-3 years Hope this helps
