Question about Electric Mobility Invacare Pronto M41 Electric Scooter Power Wheelchair
I have a Electric Mobility explorer. The battery says full, but when pull forward/reverse lever just clicks. The click appears to be comming from the electric motor at the rear base. Thanks
This sounds like you have tripped your circuit breaker. It works just like the one on your house, when you ask too much of it it suddenly goes 'pop' and seems to be dead. Do you know where the circuit breaker is on your model?......
OK this one was hard:) I like a challenge. I have located the User manual for your chair, it does have a circuit breaker, the troubleshooting page even mentions it, but NOWHERE in the whole document does it give its location. Can you beleive that? I have tried other models in your brand, and similar products but none of them show where it is. The best I can find is this link to an online tech manual on maintaining your model. if you scroll down to page 66 it gives a rather indistinct photograph but I hope it helps.
If you need a copy of your User Manual Follow this link. Troubleshooting is on Page 27. Hope this helps.

The clicking noise you are hearing is the brakes releasing. This is normal operation for scooters or electric wheelchairs. If you move the joystick and the vehicle doesn't move you may be in "free wheel" mode. Located on your scooter or EWC are motor release handles. Check to make sure that these are not in "free wheel". Basically what these levers do is disengage the motor from the transmission if there is a failure of some kind and the vehicle needs moved.
I'm guessing that there is not a circuit breaker problem. If there was the entire unit wouldn't even turn on. All scooters and EWC's have some sort of protection but not all have circuit breakers. The ones that do have breakers have them located on the back where the joystick harness plugs in or in front down by where your calfs would be. Look for a little white button with a 50 or 70 on it. To reset it you push it in. Sometimes these fail and can't be reset and will need to be replaced. If a scooter or EWC does not have a breaker it will have a fuse of some sort mounted inline with the batteries. These will range from 50 to 70 amps and are either a large automotive type fuse or one mounted directly to the battery. If either fail they will need replaced.
My experience puts the money on the fact that your chair is in "free wheel".
