Linda, did you keep the instruction manual that came with your Hovaround for such a time as this? For You need it now! Also look for the receipt so that you can see if there is a money back Guarantee with the purchase of that product.
There should be a 1-800 type # that you can call to, to get answers to your problems with that model of Hovaround Motor Chair. Good Luck on your search.

SOURCE: Hooveround MPV won't move

Most likely either one or both of the batteries have a dead cell. Have your batteries load tested to check their condition.

Check that you don't have the charger cord still connected or the motor disengaged.

SOURCE: When I turn on controller

Do all of the speed lights flash at the same time or do they ripple from left to right? If they ripple from left to right the chair is in lock mode and you can use the unlock procedures from my tips to unlock. If they are all flashing at the same time you have an internal joystick problem and the joystick needs to be replaced Hope this helps

Schematic information on Pilot Penny-Giles controller for Pride jazzy or Hoveround MPV-4 etc.


I've never had much luck getting information like this for most joysticks, and have never gotten it for Penny+Giles stuff. You may have the best luck looking for a used replacement joystick on eBay or Craig's List.

Lights turn on cant move


Be sure the free-wheel \ brake release handles are set to drive\lock position prior to turning on. After that, if chair still does not move, you will need to count the flashes on the joystick to determine the error or issue with the chair.
A user manual can be purchased on ebay.

We have a hoverround that is not being used. We charge it frequently. But today we tried to move it and it is moving very slow. I know it was originally set to a slower setting. How can we speed it up?


Rev you would have to locate the provider that delivered the chair and ask if they can reprogram the chair for you. I don't remember the type of joystick the MPV 5 uses so I don't know what type of programmer would be needed to fix the upper speed setting. They could also check the batteries cause if they are 2-3 years old they could be a cause of the slower speed Hope this helps

My hoveround light flash and then goes off wont move.it is in forward gear and the batters are ok.thank Charles


The number of lights that are flashing will indicate what the problem is related to.
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. Try resetting your brakes to see if that will help reset the system (makre sure the power chair is turned off first.) If your insurance purchased the power chair for you, they may also cover the repairs; contact Hoveround for an appointment.
Good luck!

Put in drive controller just blinks


Make sure the release levers are up all the way (in front - above the footplate). Shut power off and try chair again. If the entire row of battery lights on the joystick controller are still flashing, you need a new joystick. Contact Hoveround or The Aftermarket Group online who will qoute you a repair cost. It will probably run anywhere from 300 to 1100.

The speed control light goes back and fourth on the console.


If the lights are chasing left to right then you are in inhibit mode meaning a charger is attached or there is a problem in the joystick with the inhibit functio. Right to left chasing I think means you are in freewheel. Turn the Power off and reset the levers in front on the chair then turn the power back on and hope the lights are steady and the chair will work. If this doesn't do it maybe you are in lockout mode. If you have the manual for this chair it should explain how to get out of "lockout". If not try turning the power on and within 10 seconds push the joystick straight forward and hold until you hear a beep then immediately move the joystick to the rear and hold until you hear another beep then release joystick to the center. This should get it out of "lockout" Hope this helps!!! Of course you could always call Hoveround and ask for tech support to help with this. Checkout their website for phone number Hoveround.com

Chair will move forward and backwards OK but either will not turn or will go around in a circle very sharply


one of the motors is bad or has bad connection. try raising the chair so the drive wheels are off the ground (free-wheel) turn power on, push joystick forward and watch for drive wheels to turn. the one that wont indicates a bad motor or connection.

How do I lock up my Hoveround MPV5? The tech that delivered my chair shown me a way to lock up the joy stick & wheels, I don't remember how he did it and can't find my manual.


1. Turn the controller on.

2. To lock the chair, depress and hold the ON/OFF button. After one second the controller will beep. Release the ON/OFF button. Move the joystick forward until the control beeps. Move the joystick in reverse until the control beeps. Release the joystick. There will be a long beep that indicates the controller is locked.

3. To unlock, turn the control system on. The speed/response indicator will be rippling up and down. Move the joystick forward until the control beeps. Then move the joystick in reverse until the control beeps. Release the joystick. There will be a long beep that indicates the controller is unlocked.

This is from the manual, I hope it helps you.
