Have the battery tested, it may be defective. Any Autozone or other chain auto parts store like them do battery testing for this type of battery free, and yes I know it is not a car..

Hoveround won't move.

Double check to be sure drive levers are fully engaged. Go down and up a few times. If problem persists have Hoveround come and check it out. One of the drive motors may have shorted out when you continued driving with gravel in the wheel.

On hoveround teknique fwd chair, showing 8-bar trouble code with all functions locked out. i need to a) raise the seat so it can be removed and b) restore function to the chair. any suggestions apart from...

An 8 Bar Flash on the controller of a Teknique FWB indicates: Possible Control System Trip
A control system trip is indicated. Make sure that all connections are secure. This means that one of the wires attached to the junction box, or the umbillical, may have come disconnected.

Is your power chair equipped with an optional power seat lift? If not, raising or lowering the seat will not restore function to the power chair. Have you tried doing a brake reset just to see if that will help? The manual brake levers are under the bottom front of the chair base; turn off the controller, pull the levers down then push them back up until the pop into place. This reset will clear many issues.

If you are able to check the wiring for the junction box and wish to remove the seat, you can do so, but the Teknique series is terribly difficult for the average end-user to work on and is recommended that a Hoveround Technician do it. Hoveround will not even ship batteries for self-installation to owners of any of the Teknique power chairs because they are such a pain to work on. The seat must be fully removed to gain access to the batteries under the motor cover and most power chair owners do not posses the kind of strength and dexterity needed to do it.

The seat post can be removed by removing a bolt underneath the seat, you will also need to unclip the black umbilical cord leading from the controller to the motor cover so that you do not yank it out when you remove the seat. The motor/battery cover can then be unbolted to allow you access to the batteries and junction box. I cannot give you details on how to do this, because as a Hoveround Tech Support Rep, we are instructed to dispatch a technician for the customer's safety and I have never done it myself or even seen it done.

If your Hoveround was purchased via your Insurance, they will most likely pay for the repair, but it may take time to schedule the appointment if the Insurance requires documentation or verification before allow the repair to take place. If you are in need of additional assistance, please contact Hoveround Tech Support at 800-964-6837 on Wednesdays or Thursdays when the call volume is lower. It's worth a shot.

Good luck!

All lights blinking rapidly

The number of blinking lights indicate the problem. Visit this site to determine the cause:
Try pushing the manual brake release levers all the way to the floor (with the power chair turned off) then back up until they pop into place then turn the power chair back on. If you continue to have a problem, contact Hoveround, they are good at trouble shooting over the phone.
Good luck!

My hoveround MPV5 doesn't move. When I turn the power on, all of the battery lights come on and flash in unison. Why is it doing that?

Scottyguy Check your freewheel levers in front of the seat and make sure they are in the drive mode. If they are check your owners manual to see if you have a lock out function for your joystick If you have a lockout then it should tell you how to get it out. Some chairs can be taken out of lockout by pressing the horn button twice as soon as you turn it on. Others use the on/off button pressing the on/off button twice and then turning it on will get it out of lockout and then others use the joystick turn the power on immediately push the joystick full forward until you hear a beep then pull fully backward till you hear another beep then release to the center. With the Hoveround I don't know if they have a lockout or not and how to get it out but the examples I gave you are the only ones I am aware of. If all else fails you can contact Hoveround @ 1-800-964-6837 and ask for tech support explain your problem and hopefully they can help Hope this helps you

Those are only available through Hoveround and retail for around $1159.00. You may want to have a Hoveround Tech come out to diagnose the power chair for $50 to make sure that is what you need before spending that kid of money.

Have a hoveround and it is three years old used one fall season and has been stored in a garage but won't start now

If you stored it for a long period of time (three weeks or more) the batteries have worn down and need to be replaced. These type of batteries must be charged at least once a week to maintian life in them.
