Why does joystick light drop to red as soon as u move motor were done new cable and joy stick

The batteries are to weak to drive the chair. It takes a lot of battery power to start moving but not when you just turn it on. Using a volt meter in the charge port before and when you push the joystick will confirm this. Very typical of wheelchair batteries to do this when weak.

My mvp5 going right how do you check the bad connection to the motor

You will need to remove the seat and the shroud to get inside your chair. Once that is done, you will see the cable coming from the motor and then plugging into the control box. Unplug the cabe and do a visual examination of the connectors. Rarely, but occasionally these will overheat and cause a bad connection.

Jazzy select is swaying side to side when going forward like it has too much play in the joystick

Check your tire inflation and treads to make sure they can grip the floor/ground without slipping. Make sure that any keystock/keylock needed is installed on the axle, sometimes they slip out. Are your batteries fully charged and in good condition? Are you over the weight limit for the power chair?
Is there any noise or vibration coming from the power chair as you operate it? A grinding sound may indicate bad bearings in the caster wheels and cause problems in steering. A chirping sound may indicate a bad motor, they may be losing power and are not able to move the power chair evenly.
If your insurance purchased the power chair for you, they may also cover the repairs; contact them for information.
Good luck!

Motors not sincorised right motor runs faster and crooked

Check to make sure nothing has wrapped around the drive tires or axles that may be causing the motors to run improperly. Make sure your drive tires are fully inflated to 45-50 PSI. If you are still having problems with the chair pulling to one side, listen as you operate your power chair for any noise or vibration. A chirping sound can indicate a bad motor, grinding or rubbing can indicate bad bearings in the casters. Motor replacement can be costly, unless your insurance can pay for it. If you got your power chair from a second party, you will most likely have to pay for any repairs COD. Contact Hoveround sooner rather than later as Tech Service calls can take some time to schedule.
Good luck!

Hi. This type of fault can be caused by a few different problems. Is the machine flashing any fault codes?

Faults could be a stuck brush in the motor, Free-wheel lever in the wrong position, faulty motor or battery connectors, loose battery terminals, jambed brake solenoid.
Hope this helps. Neil.

When running the wheelchair at top speed there is a slight grinding noise in the drive train. is there a way to grease or oil the drive?

No,the motor-gearbox mechanism is sealed. You`ll probably need new motor brushes which you can get from a dealer or a new motor and/or gearbox.

Philips 55PP9352 Rear Projection, no picture or sound, chirping.

This is a common problem with this model. The convergence circuits have shorted out causing the HVG to chirp.

Goto the site and get their "chirping" tv repair kit. It will fix the no audio+no video + chirping problem.
