Jet 3 power chair will not run. We put in new batteries and still nothing. The light on the control arm comes on, but just keeps flashing. It is about 5 years old.

    Thank you for your help. Here is the email my brother sent to me.

    "I saw the codes, but they don't apply to him, he has a continuous blinking light.

    It said to check the fuse, the connections, and the actual battery terminals."





    We are both in a different town from where the chair is and haven't had a chance to go there to check it out further. Thanks again for your help!

Shoprider power chair won't move and 8 Battery LED Lights are flashing


Code 8: Controller problem. Also, check to see if your gearbox levers are engaged - if you can roll the chair by hand the gearbox is not engaging the motors.

When I turn on controller power the speed lights flash slowly. Joystick does nothing and chair is dead. Chair is Pride Jet 3 Ultra.


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

Jet 3 flashes "code 7".


The VSI joystick controller of the Jet 3 with a flash code of 7 LEDs flashing on the battery condition display indicates a possible joystick fault.
The most likely problem is with the joystick gimble. You can also get a 7 bar flash if the joystick is out of the neutral position at start-up.
Run the joystick in a circle and back and forth feeling for any sticky or broken/dead spots. Check to see if the spring and gimble come back to center when you release it. Turn off the VSI and try centering the joystick. Turn the VSI back on and see if you can get the fault to clear.
The only recourse is to have the unit rebuilt or replaced . A rebuilt VSI will run about $500 and a new one about $1600. For this reason it is best to check with your insurance before performing the work to see if its a covered item. Hope this helps

The chair suddenly lost power and now the lights flash continuously. The chair won't take a charge. A repairman tried fixing it at a local shop and said he put a new battery in and it sizzled. Now he is...


If he put in the batteries (2) properly, they should never sizzle. Some will emit a very minute spark when the final connection is made, but that is normal. There are fuses coming off of each battery to the power controller that will blow at 40 to 100 amps or so, depending on the chair; these will blow before the chair frying, or the circuit breaker will trip, or the controller will fry and all will be quiet on the chair, so I am going to say that the batteries weren't properly hooked up, otherwise on of the above items would have shut everything down. Continuous flashes indicate trying to start the chair while it is still on the charger, or with the joystick off-center. Make sure it is unplugged and notohing is resting against the joystick. If it's still a no-go, then you have either a joystick issue or controller issue. You will need to test those by replacing with known good controller/joystick, which a dealer should be able to do for you. Good luck.
