Test the battery voltage at the joystick where a programmer or charger would plug in. There are 3 holes, the top or number one hole is the positive hole for a voltage meter to plug into and the bottom or number two hole is the negative hole for the volt meter. Plug in the meter and see what the voltage is when sitting still and keep the meter in and see what the voltage does while you are driving the chair. The voltage should not drop more than 1 or 2 volts from that which you had when the chair was not moving. If the voltage drops more than that then there is a problem with charging or the new batteries. If the voltage remains good then the joystick or speed knob control could be the problem.

Check that the speed control on your joystick is set to high. If it is then you probably have a battery problem. Even with all the lights lit on the joystick you can have one battery of the two on the chair that is not charging fully. This will cause the M51 to creep and not work correctly

Make sure all of your connections are tights and the your fuses do not need to be replaced.

Blinking lights on the controller usually indicates a problem, the number of blinking lights are used to diagnose the problem. Take a look at this website to identify the type of controller you have on your scooter so you can dtermine what the blinking lights are trying to indicate.

SOURCE: pronto M6 chair will not work. When the power

Phil the red means battery is low and the green is a speed limit code because of the low battery if you have charged your batteries and you still get the red then you need to check the charger after charging all night does the yellow light on the charger turn green? if when you first plug in the charger if the red light is on and the other light is green then there is a problem with the wiring or connection to the batteries from the charger and you aren't charging the batteries. if when you plug the charger in and you get a red and yellow light then the charger is working but you don't ever ge a green light and the battery level gauge is still showing red then you need to replace the batteries Hope this helps

What does 1 red flash followed by 5 green flashes mean on a Pronto M6


1 red + 5 green is left parking brake fault. This is a pretty generic code and can be something as simple as the brake/clutch lever is in free-wheel, or it can mean something more significantly wrong, depending on how it is wired in this model. (We don't work with Prontos a lot here.)

I have a Invacare Pronto M6 powerchair that is not working. I've charged the batteries with an external charger. The power lite is flashing red once, then green 3 times. Any help would be appreciated. ...


Marilyn Not having worked on many M6 chairs in a long time I would venture that you have a left motor error indicated by the 3 flashes however since you don't have a indication of full power you might have a battery problem because a low battery can cause the chair to flash also. If you can get someone with a digital voltmeter to measure the voltage at the charger port on the joystick it will let you elimitate the batteries as the problem. Place the voltmeter to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the two outter holes in the charger port the reading should be 24-27+ volts if the batteries are fully charged. If you are not getting anything or a very low reading then that could be the problem. Replace both batteries with U1 batteries. After yo replace the batteries and charge them before use then turn the chair on and see if you are getting the smae flashes If you are then I suspect it is the left motor and it will need to be replaced,\. Hope this helps you

Lights flashing


Are you sure that your batteries are not just able to hold a charge? Flashing lights and slow motion are typical indicators.
