    Are the batteries charged? Are the brakes up and locked in the drive position? Are there any flashing lights to indicate a problem?

Make sure the batteries are fully charged, all the connections are secure, the fuses are intact, there are no flashing lights and that the two black manual brake release knobs are in the upright position (located just above the footrest.).

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.

When changing a wheel one must remember to reinstall the shaft key, or the wheel will not be secured to the shaft. The shaft of the motor is turning but wheel is not.

My hoveround light flash and then goes off wont 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:
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!

My mpv 5 turns on and horn works but wont move

Make sure both manual brake levers are in the UP/DRIVE position. They are located just above the footrest between where your ankles would be. If they are both up and there are no flashing lights on the controller, the motors may be bad.
