Question about Jet 3 Ultra Power Chair

1 Answer

The chair suddenly lost power and now the lights flash continuously. The chair won't take a charge. A repairman tried fixing it at a local shop and said he put a new battery in and it sizzled. Now he is vacation for 2 weeks and I am without a chair.

If he put in the batteries (2) properly, they should never sizzle. Some will emit a very minute spark when the final connection is made, but that is normal. There are fuses coming off of each battery to the power controller that will blow at 40 to 100 amps or so, depending on the chair; these will blow before the chair frying, or the circuit breaker will trip, or the controller will fry and all will be quiet on the chair, so I am going to say that the batteries weren't properly hooked up, otherwise on of the above items would have shut everything down. Continuous flashes indicate trying to start the chair while it is still on the charger, or with the joystick off-center. Make sure it is unplugged and notohing is resting against the joystick. If it's still a no-go, then you have either a joystick issue or controller issue. You will need to test those by replacing with known good controller/joystick, which a dealer should be able to do for you. Good luck.

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.

My power chair got wet in rain and won't start and lights olny flashing and what is meaning of vsi? how to ftx problem..please help!


VSI is the controller under the joy stick. Water will ruin the electronic circuits . The controller is expensive new. You can find rebuilt ones cheaper or can have yours rebuilt. Check your local mobility service shop or on line repair facilities.

Controller has 8 flashing lights


After researching this question for you I came up with a charging issue when the lights keep flashing. This means that battery is either bad or came loose or the charger on board went bad and will not complete the charge my best advice to you is to take it in to a local shop to have it serviced. Thanks for using FixYa! John

I just gave my mother in law the jazzy 1103 ultra power chair... when you put it on.. the lights flash and the chair creeps along.. it happened all of a sudden.. it wont speed up.. this was donated so I...


tam The batteries need to be replaced. With the lights flashing indicating low voltage and the chair just creeping means weak batteries. With a donated chair you do not know how long the chair sat without being charged. You need to purchase 2 U1 batteries. If there is a battery warehouse store near you or an Interstate battery store check with them because your cost will be less than going through a provider. Hope this helps you

The number of lights that are blinking indicate what the problem is. Visit this site to locate the type on controller on your power chair and you will be able to see that the blinking lights mean:

Try to reset your manual brake release as this is a common problem.
If you continue to have a problem, contact your manufacturer or dealer for service. If your insurance purchased they power chair for you, they may also cover the cost of repairs.
Good luck!

Pronto M71 chair, 2004 suddenly won't move, it just flashes charge or drive. The batter is NOT dead, in fact it's almost fully charged. (25 of 28). I just got this today, I barely know what I am doing!


Hi. Check the free-wheel levers. There is one on each motor. If you can push the machine along the floor, then the lever is in the wrong position.
If it still doesn't work, then count the flashes of each LED, and let us know.
I had this problem last week on a machine, and the local auto electrician couldn't fix it.
Good luck. Neil.

Jet 3 Ultra won't charge


Indeed, you need to find a repair shop. Try a google search for power chair repair, or ask your local hospital or if you can find one a power chair store. Most likely, you have a mechanical failure of the wiring, the battery themselves, or corrosion on the battery posts. Since the chair lights up when the charger is in, it is unlikely that the charger is broken. You may have a failure of the controller board, but that is also unlikely. And batteries do not usually suddenly fail completely; they typically fail slowly, losing the ability to completely charge.

I assume that you did not see a great deal of fluid leaking out of the battery container; you might look in the container and check to see if a battery is cracked or missing fluid.
