Your batteries are nearing replacement time. They are becoming incapable of holding a full charge.

Red light flashing on joystick about 10 min after charging


Most of the time it may be the batteries at fault. One more thing to try is charging the chair with the Joystick on all night 10-14 hours uninterrupted charging. Your chair may suffer from current roll back. There is a circuit in your system that has to be reset by the long charge cycle to reset it. I did not make this up. it occurs when the motors over heat or have a a large current draw. the chair will operate normally for ten maybe even twenty mins. then suddenly drop down to 2 flashing red lights.

Tip

Charging your power chair or scooter the correct way can make them last


Whenever you need to charge your power chair or scooter get into the habit of charging overnight. The battery level indicator lights will tell you if your chair or scooter needs charging. Whenever the lights are down into the yellow and especially if they are in the red. If you have the off-board charger, plug the charger into the charger port in the front of your joystick and then plug the charger into the wall socket or turn the on/off switch on and let it charge overnight. When you get up in the morning the charger should have a red light(power) and a green light illuminated (indicating fully charged) Always turn the charger off or unplug it from the wall socket before you unplug it from the chair or scooter. Never have the power on to the charger when you plug or unplug it from your chair or scooter. Whenever you get new batteries always give your batteries a full charge before use and then if you use the chair daily charge it every night. If you do not use your chair or scooter daily charge it at least once a week. Never leave the charger plugged in and on for more than 24 hours. Your batteries should last you 3-4 years if you charge them correctly.

AFTER HALF HOUR MY BATTRIES ON MY MOBILITY SCOOTER SHOW GREEN


Could be - I would take the scooter or battery to a car store and they will load check the battery - That is, they will cause the battery to do work, and measure the voltage.
Measuring volts while the battery is at rest will indicate full voltage. That would be a flawed test.

I'm borrowing a Jet 3 Ultra from the local Am. Legion for my Mom to use. They know nothing about it except they were told it had a new battery. I plug it in and all the LED's light up with the...


The batteries need charging and when you plug in the charger and the power is on the lights wil flash indicating that the charger is plugged in. Now look at the rear of the chair near where the charger cord plugs into the chair and you should see a voltmeter. With the charger plugged in the voltmeter will indicate about 5-6 amps and after charging overnight the voltmeter should be reading 0 amps. If when you plug in the charger cord and the voltmeter indicates 0 amps then I would suspect that the charger is not working or that the fuse is blown in the charger circuit. The only way to see if the batteries charge would be to borrow or find an offboard charger that will plug into the charger port located under the front of the joystick and after charging for 10-12 hours see if the battery level lights show full charge Hope this helps

Have a jet 3 power chair will not take a charge, can't tell that iy is charging


Cathey when you plug in the charger look at the rear of the chair at the meter if the chair is charging then the meter will indicate some amperage reading when it is fully charged the meter will read zero. Also turn on the chair and if the lights are scrolling or flashing it shows that the charger is plugged in. Now if after the meter reads zero (if it ever does) the lights on the joystick should all be lit indicating a full charge. If you aren't getting all the lights and the meter indicated the charger was working then you need to replace the batteries Hope this helps

I have aenigma wheel chair with a shark contoller when you switch it on all lights come on then only one left hand light flashes red thanks Stuart


Stuart iy\ts indicating low battery voltage charge the batteries and see if it goes away if it doesn't then the batteries need replacing or your charge is not working correctly If after charging overnite when you get up in the morning the charger should have a green light on and the battery level should be full. If after just a bit it goes to the red flashing light then your batteries are bad and need replacing. If the chair is less than 6 months old then the batteries are under warranty and your provider(where you got your chair) must replace them at no cost Hope this helps

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

Chair is charged up. When we turn it on the lights, top and bottom set, flash on and then goes off.It shows a full charge when it flashes. Battery should be good,It's not that old.


You can visit this website to find answers on what the flashing trouble indicator lights mean: http://www.pgdt.com/scenter/diagnostics/diagvsi.html
Locate the page that has the controller used on your power chair/scooter and count how many lights are flashing to diagnose the trouble. If your insurance purchased the power chair for you, they may also cover the repairs; contact them for information.
Good luck!

Battery doesn't charge


When you connect the charger, if the light goes to red to green within a few minutes and the battery power does not last more than 1-2 hours or less, it may indicate that that the batteries will not take a charge anymore and need to be replaced. This can happen if the power chair has not been charged in a while or has been stored. Having the chair on or off while charging will not affect the charging process, but you ususally want it to be OFF.
Good luck!

Upon power up, 3 red LEDs flashing rapidly continously, no power.


The control systems on power mobility equipment have a "prevent" circuit that immobilizes the equipment while it is plugged into a charger, so folks won't take off with it plugged into the wall outlet. When you turn it on when plugged into a charger, the display will flash constantly, or sweep constantly, depending on the manufacturer. This is normal. Your off-board charger should have a red light to indicate power to the charger, and another light for the charge status. Yellowish means it is charging, when it turns green, you are fully charged. If the status light is green all the time, that is an indication that the charger is not functioning properly, or that the batteries are below a chargeable state. Check charger output, which should be 26-28 volts dc, and each battery should show at least a 12 volt reading, but around 13.5 volts with a full charge. If one or both of the batteries drops below 12 volts after a short period of time, it's time for a fresh pair. Fully charge new ones before using the chair.
