Question about The Health & Beauty
When the power chair is turned on, the lights on the joystick come on and stay on continually indicating a full charge. When the joystick is moved in any direction all of the lights blink three times over and over again until the power chair turned off.

The Rascal Turnabout model 312 power chair has VR2 electronics made by Penny and Giles Drive Technology. The VR2 electronics will give you a flash code to indicate the problem with the power chair.
Based on what you are describing, you have a right motor fault.
This means there is a problem in the motor, the wiring, or the connections to the motor.
Let's take each of these in turn.
To make the checks on the various components, you need to remove the seating system.
Unplug the joystick cable leading to the base.
Remove the seating system from the base using the release lever and 1 or 2 people to lift it off the seat post and onto the ground.
Remove the cover from the base.
Check all the electrical connections in the base and make sure they are tight and pushed together making good contact.
Your power problem may be related to the batteries so you can check them while you are in the base. If your 2, U-1 batteries are more than 1 year old and test bad or weak replace them with new batteries. You can have them tested where you buy new ones or find someone with a load tester and you can test them yourself.
If all the electrical connections are tight, or if one of the connections was loose and the contact had backed out of the connector, fix it and you are home free. Test by scooting the seating system over on the floor and plugging in the joystick to test.
If you still have a fault code, find the wiring leading to the right motor. ( You should also check the left motor while you're under the hood because sometimes with mid wheel drive chairs the fault code is reversed when the motors are plugged in the controller). If you have a voltmeter, you can check out the motor. Unplug the motor at the connector. These motors may have 2 different style plugs that will release when you press the plastic lever and wiggle the plug out. Check it at the controller for good contact.
The plug should have 2 large wires for the motor and 2 smaller wires for the brake. The brake should read between 40 to 60 ohms and the motor should read between 0 and 1.5 ohms. If either of these is out of factory spec, replace the motor/brake assembly. If the gearbox is noisy or leaking, replace the motor/brake/gearbox assembly.
With that being said, you need to check and replace the batteries first if they are weak or bad.
If you are handy or know a good mechanic the assembly can be changed in 2 hours including testing and diagnosis,removal and replacement of the assembly.
You need to call Electric Mobility to get the replacement parts 1-800-MOBILITY. Hope this helps.
