O have a Pronto M 41 and was bought in 07 but am having problams with turning on and shutting off.Could you tell me what it could be.

Have you replaced the batteries ever? I was told by my local Invacare vendor that the batteries are only good for 12-18 months. My mom's Pronto M41 was having battery problems and replacing both batteries solved the problem in her chair bought in 2007. Now she is looking to buy a slightly used chair (4 mos old) from the family of a deceased friend and there seem to be issues with the batteries in this almost-new chair.

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.
Good luck!

imwaltz Sorry buddy but if it sat that long the batteries are probably too low for the charger to pick up and charge. to bad you didn't just charge those batteries once a month while you were laid up. You will have to get new batteries. If Medicare paid for your chair they will pay for most of the repair costs. Contact Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 these are 2 excellent service companies that will bill Medicare for repair and have a tech repair the chair for you. Hope this helps

If you chair was down for a long time before getting new batteries the tires could have developed flat spots on them. Also could have brush problems in the motors that make the motors run jerky from sitting too long.

I need a new battery where can i get a low

The batteries inside the small hand held are NOT consumer replaceable. They are all soldered in place. If you are a handy with a soldering iron, you can replace the batteries yourself. I did and my Pronto 2-1 runs like new. I had it for about a year then it gradually lost its holding charge. I would only get about 2 minutes before it stopped.
Battery Replacement. First you will need new batteries. The batteries for the Pronto 2-1 are called NiMh 4/5 Sub C 2000mAh w/ TABS and can be purchased at You will need 8 of them. I paid a total of about $30 shipped. Next. Remove the 4 small screws holding the unit together. Once you have it apart you can get an idea of what is ahead. It took me about 45 minutes to cut out the old batteries and replace with new ones. Here are some helpful tricks. Use a knife to cut off the tab jacket about ¼ inch from the ends on all of the new batteries. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and tear off the battery tabs right off the OLD battery bodies. Replace the batteries ONE AT A TIME except for the group of 4 in the handle. The goal here is to solder the new battery tabs to the OLD battery tabs. This is much easier soldering tabs together than stripping and soldering the wires. REPLACE the batteries exactly how you see them. Add electrical tape where appropriate. Be careful when packaging the batteries back in place. I mentioned replace the batteries one at a time because this will allow you to verify your soldering. Press the on button and you should get the blower going. If not, you have a bad solder joint. Anyway, good luck. Jeff

Can't charge Pronto M91.

Hi Bob. Unfortunately in most cases this means that the batteries have gone so flat that they cannot be “revived”. The best thing to do is take the batteries to a local battery dealer and have them checked. You may need to replace them. Another possibility is that because the batteries are so flat, the charging circuit hit a wobbly trying to resuscitate them and popped a fuse button. A simple reset may help. Happy scooting.
